La Quinta, California
Reviewed 24 June 2015

This hotel is in great need of paint and cleaning. The cushions on the outdoor furniture was filthy! Not someplace I would stay again. I did like our room location near the pol.The spa is not really a spa but just a treatment room. The location of the hotel is its best feature.

I go to this place often for a staycation because is it in the heart of old town Scottsdale. This allows for partying in town and stumbling back to the room. The fitness center is totally loaded and right by the pool, so your muscles are all pumped when you go party at the pool. Famous upscale Mexican restaurant on...

The Saguaro is a great place to stay at a reasonable price compared to other resorts in Scottsdale. The location is perfect for walking to all the action in Old Town. Great restaurants, bars, and nightclubs are within walking distance, or golf cart taxi ride away. The best way to travel from the resort is by the free pink bikes...

We were excited about staying at this hotel having spent the previous night at the sister hotel in Palm Springs. Unfortunately while the hotel lived up to expectations it was over-run with large groups of rowdy youngsters who had no respect for other guests and barged their way through doors, to the front of coffee queues etc. If this is...

This is the fourth night of a tour! Arrived late afternoon only made use of pool and room with both being adequate and clean. Found the pool bar closing at 6 rather strange with guests round the pool. Noise seemed to carry to us from other quarters of hotel and the airconditioning was very loud! Staff seemed pleasant and efficient!

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
