"The vibe is friendly, indoors and out" -- The New York Times

Why We Love It

  • This retro-style hotel charms with bright, loud colors and mod furnishings
  • Two pools, offering either a party atmosphere or a calm retreat
  • The shops, restaurants and galleries of Old Town are only a few blocks away
  • The vibrant restaurant serves up American fare and a spa takes inspiration from the desert


It’s “color blocking gone wild” (Conde Nast Traveler) at the Saguaro in Scottsdale, where retro style was pulled into the modern age with a 2011 renovation. This town was a celebrity haven in the 1950s and '60s, and the hotel offers a heaping spoonful of that poolside-beneath-the-palm-trees languorous glamour.

Vibrant primary colors spill over accent walls, across furniture and into the weave of handcrafted Mexican textiles in guest rooms, which have vintage issues of Arizona Highways magazine and sliding glass doors leading to a balcony or patio facing the city or pools. The mod rooms are decked out with flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and organic bath products. Hallways here are open-air walkways.

The hotel’s restaurant offers an American bistro concept, serving locally sourced seasonal dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu offers salads, flatbreads and entrees, as well as an extensive tequila list, a variety of wines and handcrafted cocktails. A small coffee kiosk serves up specialty coffees and pastries in the mornings. 

In the courtyard are two pools. Upbeat music pulses around the main one, which has lounge chairs, day beds and more of a festive atmosphere. Things get calmer at the second pool, which is tucked to one side in a grove of palm trees, where the splashing of a concrete waterfall is a perfect soundtrack for frittering away an afternoon beneath the sunshine. This is definitely the place for the trendy 20- to 30-something set who want a pool party scene rather than a family-focused affair.

Spa treatments take inspiration -- and ingredients -- from the Southwest desert. Prickly pear sugar scrubs feet, margarita salt exfoliates hands, chilies and Mexican chocolate envelope the skin and chaparral and yucca detoxify the body.

From the press:
  • “The genius of this redesign is in its interpretation of the Scottsdale building code ... [it's] the colors of desert wildflowers -- a dozen eye-popping hues dominated by oranges, pinks, yellows, and purples” -- Conde Nast Traveler
  • “An urban resort in the suburban desert with a pool-party scene, boutique spa and destination restaurant makes a convivial base for anyone who doesn’t want the isolation of the large local resorts. The vibe is friendly, indoors and out” -- The New York Times

The main pool was shut down because some yahoo dropped their beer bottle in the pool. I would think the hotel wouldn't sell beer in bottles in the pool area.... what an inconvenience as main pool shut down for two days because of this.

I loved the interior decor. It is so girly and mid-century chic. There is a lot of attention to detail. The location can't be beat.
Other Comments
The front desk said that the TravelZoo $30 resort credit couldn't be used anywhere but the restaurant, but I am not 100% confident that's actually true. If it is, that disclaimer should be put in the details on TravelZoo.
