Friendly staff, nice pools and we loved the bright colors of the room but the air conditioning unit was way too noisy to have a peaceful night!!! The restaurant of the hotel had very good Mexican food.

Thank you so much for your review cathno! We really appreciate that you recognized our friendly staff! I love the bright cheerful colors in the rooms too, they happen to represent the various desert flower colors here in Arizona. So glad you loved Distrito Restaurant. They have fantastic Mexico City inspired cuisine. Yum Yum!

My husband and I booked a staycation at The Saguaro over the weekend. The location is great. It's within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of pretty much wherever you would want to go in downtown Scottsdale. The a staff were also very friendly & accommodating. The pool party was a fun scene but got kind of crazy as the afternoon went...

The Saguaro is close to Old Town Scottsdale so dining, etc. is right there. The hotel is comfortable with nice pools, good food and good drinks. Air conditioner was excellent which was handy for 106+ temps. Only quibble was the lack of cold water from the taps which makes sense considering the pipes never cool. Wifi was barely adequate. NOTE:...

This is a re-purposed facility in the heart of Old-Town Scottsdale. An ideal location for exploring the shops, galleries and sights of the old west. We spent as much time as possible away from the hotel, but the summer heat of 110+ made that very difficult. Any other season would have been great. The hotel is a funky throwback to...

This is by far our favorite place to have a date weekend in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area! This hotel offers a really cool vibe for adults of all ages.

This hotel is in great need of paint and cleaning. The cushions on the outdoor furniture was filthy! Not someplace I would stay again. I did like our room location near the pol.The spa is not really a spa but just a treatment room. The location of the hotel is its best feature.

The Saguaro is a great place to stay at a reasonable price compared to other resorts in Scottsdale. The location is perfect for walking to all the action in Old Town.

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
