I stayed here during a recent business visit to Arizona. The hotel was great value for the area, although the room was a little tired, albeit very comfortable. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and you're just a short walk northward to the main shopping centre. The WiFi was a little spotty in the room, but...

As others have mentioned the rooms, furniture and poolside could all use a little update/facelift. Staff is friendly and helpful all around. The location is good. Adjacent to Old Town and plenty to do within walking distance. The air conditioning in our room didn't work. They sent someone to fix it quickly, but it broke again soon after. The only...

First, the good: the staff is, for the most part very helpful and polite. There was one notable exception at the front desk, but she was just sour, not rude. The staff in the restaurant were phenomenal, as were the bellmen. The lobby is beautiful, and the larger pool is quite nice - I didn't go to the smaller one,...

Loved this hotel as it was so close to the old town of Scottsdale. It was very hot when I visited so the cold water drinks at the pool were most appreciated. Loved that this hotel had two pools to choose from (one was marked for quieter times). Pool towels and comfortable lounge chairs awaited me. The only downside is...

My girlfriends and I recently spent the day at the Saguaro Spa for my bachelorette,and I cannot recommend it enough. Everyone raved about how much they enjoyed their massages and facials.

Hotel location is perfect to walk to shopping and restaurants. Decor is cool and funky. Staff is friendly and the valet (Kenny) should win employee of the month! He went above and beyond and made us laugh! Hire ten more like him! Only reason for one less star, condition of hotel.

Basically a conference center attached to an updated motel in central Scottsdale. For out of towners, they may find it odd to walk from the detached motel to the main building for meals and conference. Room service is available. The rooms are an updated motel environment with a 70's theme. The service is great and very attentive. Kudo's there.

I did not stay at this hotel so I can't rate that aspect, just my experiences. I had a reservation through Travelzoo which had a 48 hr cancellation policy.

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
