Why We Love It

  • This is a party hotel -- the Olympic-size pool attracts a young and lively scene on weekends
  • "A hip retreat" per Conde Nast Traveler and one of Palm Springs' "coolest boutique hotels," according to Fodor's
  • On-site restaurant El Jefe serves up authentic Mexican street food
  • Amenities include private patios or balconies, morning yoga classes, a bocce ball court, spa and downtown transfers


The Saguaro Palm Springs opened to acclaim in 2012 and swiftly picked up a chic, loyal following and rave reviews from Conde Nast Traveler, which calls it a "hip retreat with the help of psychedelic colors." The property is located on the quieter southern end of Palm Springs, though the colorful, retro décor is anything but muted.

The hotel has a trendy on-site restaurant, El Jefe, where guests can sip freshly made specialty cocktails like the Tipsy Cactus and enjoy small plates like short rib tacos or spinach quesadillas.

The hotel’s best feature, however, is the pool deck with two hot tubs and an Olympic-size pool, which stays open late. It attracts a lively crowd on summer weekends, when the DJ spins all day long and the deck buzzes with the young and trendy. The stunning mountain backdrop only makes it more picturesque. Take note, however: During the week, the partiers head back to LA, and the hotel scene is much quieter and more family oriented.

The hotel may be small, but it isn’t short on amenities. There’s a 24-hour gym, yoga classes every morning and a shuttle bus that provides transport to downtown Palm Springs. There’s also a bocce ball court, a small spa and bikes with which to explore the surrounding mountain trails.

The rooms are fun with purple carpets, handcrafted Mexican furniture, vintage prints and striped bedspreads. Suites have separate living rooms, and almost every room has a balcony or patio. The hotel is pet friendly with a nonrefundable $50 fee.

It was definitely a very hip place. Staff are generally friendly, but inconsistent. One conversation with the front office manager was unpleasant.
Other Comments
The Saguaro is definitely more run down than I have come to expect from a Travelzoo recommended hotel. Also, as stated above, the staff were inconsistent, and we received multiple instances of misinformation. For example, one person told me I could have a reservation for 10 in the restaurant, and that turned out to be true. Another person told me that we could take the bikes out for a longer period of time and not be charged, which was not convey to other people at the front desk. We were missing a light in the room, they door to the room was damaged, our hot and cold water faucets were switched, and the water coming out of the faucet was cloudy. Finally, some of the exterior doors did not lock consistently.

Lobby was cute
Other Comments
Hotel was very dated. Very few accommodations to make the “resort fee” feel worthwhile. Some staff were not polite.

Overall condition of the facility. Staff was less than attentive and there was no coffee in the room. More like an economy motel.
