This is by far my favorite place to stay in Scottsdale and I have stayed at all the resorts. It is in the most perfect location. You can walk out the back door into the city center park where there are always festivals and tons of restaurants and downtown Scottsdale with all the bars. The staff was so nice and...

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!

Thank you for your review alan6752. We are so glad you chose The Saguaro Hotel as part of your tour. Good feedback on the pool bar hours. We will re-look at our service times to better accommodate our guests enjoying the pool in the evening. I'm happy to say that our summer rooms refresh will include our air conditioning units....

I checked in yesterday and spoke to an employee at 9:30 am who indicated that checking in early (before 4:00) would be possible and assured me that I could count on 1:30. After making numerous calls I finally had access to my room at 4:35. The hotel is kinda funky, which appeals to me, but the facilities are a bit...

Thank you for your review NMLion. We are so sorry to hear that your early check-in wasn't available.

It's in a great location in Old town. The over all hotel is a hip & retra. Staff are very nice. To me the place looked like they just put a coat a paint over everything. The purple carpet in the walk ways needs to removed. The bar is great place to stop for a drink but it was very...

I booked the hotel on hotel tonight. There is a $22.00/night "Resort Fee" that is not included with the advertised price but is mentioned on their website as well as on hotel tonight. I would say to classify yourself as a resort you should have resort amenities. To me the Saguaro is nice however it is far from a resort....

We stayed here Memorial Day weekend. The hotel rooms are good and clean but nothing to write home about... The bed was awesome- slept like we were at home. All the public spaces, from lobby to grounds to pool to Distro... All awesome! Great service too- in every area (valet, front desk, coffee shop & bar).

Fun space, great design and helpful staff. The room itself was a bit dark and smaller than I expected. Wifi signal was pretty weak in the room as well. Restaurant was decently priced and the food was great. Right next to old town. Would stay again.

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
