I debated a 2 or 3 star rating and decided to go with 2. The staff was lovely, the lobby and the bar are cool and well-designed. The pool and fitness center are nice, although the pool furniture is a little worn and dingy. So why the two star review? The room was well below what I was expecting. The...

Dear Sandy_Floors, Thank you for comments in regard to your recent stay. I apologize about your recent experience here; it is very upsetting to read. This is not a normal occurrence. We have actually done many renovations in late 2011. During this we added many great touches to our guest rooms, including 100% cotton 400 thread count sheets, pillow top...

The Saguaro is located right in old town Scottsdale and ideally situated for catching Giants spring training. The hotel is a very hip update of a midcentury motel. The furnishings are comfortable, the amenities are high quality. The rooms, however, have doors which open directly to the outdoors (rather than an interior corridor) and that can result in traffic (or...

It's not a 4-5 star but it was ok. With almost $100 in "additional fees and taxes" for a 2 night stay, I would consider it overpriced. The wifi was a joke. The robes were worn out. The towels thin. The TP was one ply. I needed more counter space in the bathroom. I reserved a "City View" room but...

The rooms didn't have much room for clothing and the counter for makeup in the bathroom was just a small shelf above the sink. Sink, toilet, and shower/tub were all in one room - not my favorite setup. The bed had an enclosed base - too easy to stub a toe on. Porter and housekeeping tips were automatically added to...

I was pleasantly surprised. After reading other reviews, I was anticipating an aged, run down hotel with bright painted colors; however, I didn't anticipate the level of outstanding service we received at the Saguaro.

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
