My girlfriends and I were really having a hard time nailing down a place to stay in Scottsdale. An Airbnb just didn't feel right for our short weekend away, we didn't want a sleepy hotel - we wanted a great pool, poolside service and FUN. The Saguaro was most definitely the best decision. Ya, it's older but that is part...

Clean and modern rooms, easy parking, excellent service from all staff, great bar, and fabulous pool! Location was perfect! Walking distance to all the action of old town!

This is an odd property. The rooms have clearly been updated and are comfortable but some of the decorating choices are a bit strange, such as curtains covering a blank wall instead of using art or photographs. Outside, a rainbow of bright colors have been used to suggest a new, hip hotel/resort but the property is clearly old and looks...

We had a great time at the Saguaro. The service and help we received during our event was exceptional and we would gladly host another event there. The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. The hotel also offered a discounted stay for hosting an event and was very adaptable to any change we might've had during our event.

Beautiful day..great location. Staff was extremely friendly & helpful. Paddle board yoga was extremely fun & calming. Never tried it before but would definitely do it again. All in all, despite the age of the hotel, it feels very hip yet relaxing. So close to good restaurants, bars, art galleries, shopping. All in comfortable walking distance. Perfect choice for a...

When I got engaged 10 months ago, The Saguaro was high on my list of venues, due to the colorful and fun feel of the hotel, as well as the central location to Old Town.

The rooms are nicely renovated in this older hotel, leaving a few older details in place (tile in bathroom, HVAC). The pool area is beautiful. Our A/C didn't work correctly the first two nights we were there, but they were good about repairing it. Bar/restaurant is highly overpriced, as is the little coffee/smoothie area. The rooms were WAY overpriced for...

I had high hopes for this hotel, after seeing great photos on Instagram of the beautifully coloured exterior. Unfortunately inside it's not as exciting and it felt like an old motel that had been given a (good) lick of paint. Bathroom was cute and well designed, but the air con was noisy. Overpriced, but interesting all the same.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Scottsdale is the place to go for art, shopping and nightlife in the Valley of the Sun. Now there's a hotel creating even more desire around the desert experience. The Saguaro has arrived, bringing with it a new look to where Old Town, the Arts district and Civic Center Mall meet. Bright, lush and vibrant, it's a fresh face amid Scottsdale's buzzing downtown scene. Guestrooms & Suites: The Saguaro experience begins, fittingly enough, outside amid the arid weather and brilliant sunlight of the Sonoran Desert. Each room exterior is accented by the color of a native desert flower, creating a visual spectrum throughout the resort grounds. Inside, your room's primary color is joined by contemporary and natural furnishings in wood and leather, including hand-crafted pieces imported from Mexico. Services & Amenities: A stay here is about relaxation, nature and yes, our two famous pools. Both are easy walks from every room, heated and ringed by cabanas. The Saguaro Spa welcomes you to de-stress even further. When it's time to recharge, the comprehensive fitness center will get you looking your best for around the poolside bar. Guestroom Amenities• All rooms renovated October 2016• Flat screen, wall mounted 42" HDTVs• Authentic, traditional Mexican furniture • Views of Old Town and Civic Center park (select rooms)• Outdoor patios or step out balconies • Soaking tubs and separate shower (suites)• Work desks• Wireless Internet• Stereo with iPod docking station• On-demand movies and music. Meetings: It's the weather. The golf courses: The deals closed over cocktails by the pool. Whatever the reason, Scottsdale is a top choice for corporate gatherings. The Saguaro provides over 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, with wraparound patios, fireplaces, and a fire pit. We're ready to make your event a strategic success. Scottsdale's business climate is dynamic. Companies headquartered in Scottsdale include APL, Dial, Fender, Go Daddy, Kahala Corp, Kona Grill, Medicis, P.F. Chang's, Rural Metro, iCrossing and Taser, to name a few. ... more   less
