Palm Springs is feeling refreshed. To know Palm Springs is to love it. Whether you come for the sun, the spas or the style, there's an undeniable lure to this oasis of desert modern in the Coachella Valley. Now there's new place to lay your head while soaking it all up. The Saguaro opens in February 2012, bringing with it a new sense of design, food and comfort. If you ever needed another reason to escape here, you have one now. Guestrooms and Suites Bright. Light. Colorful. The rooms at the Saguaro immerse you in the desert resort experience that is Palm Springs. Choose your view, mountain, garden courtyard with pool, or city lights. Nearly every room has a balcony or patio and is accented inside and out by the brilliant color of a native Mojave wildflower, creating a visual spectrum of light throughout the grounds. No one perspective is the same. Services and Amenities There are certain standards by which a visit to Palm Springs is judged. Such as pool time and the scenery that goes with it, the quality of architecture and design, and perhaps most importantly, the ability to enjoy the desert landscape and air, preferably with cocktail in hand. By all accounts, the Saguaro has you more than covered.

The hotel charges an $25 per night resort fee to all guests which is collected at check-out. The resort fee includes self parking, WiFi (basic), guest transportation (within 5 miles), daily yoga, and pool access.

Area description
A touch of old Hollywood glamor. Perhaps the best golf and spas in the west. Groundbreaking mid-century modern architecture. A party circuit unrivaled for its inclusiveness. There is only one Palm Springs, that's for sure. The Saguaro puts you right in the middle of it, just off famed Palm Canyon Drive a mile from downtown. Yet, in true Palm Springs fashion, a stay here is also about privacy and relaxation. Palm Springs was initially popular with visitors for the health effects of its dry heat and clean air. The weather is still a huge draw, as are the hiking trails, golf courses, pool scenes that go with it. There is fantastic antique shopping, especially from the mid-century era, due to the area's desert modern architecture that sprouted in the 1940s.

Dining

El Jefe
At The Saguaro, El Jefe's culinary inspiration will be the wonderfully diverse street food of Mexico. Guests can enjoy an extensive list of over 100 tequilas and mescals, available by the glass and also in flights for sampling. El Jefe's design will bring the classic Western frontier bar so ubiquitous in many of our beloved vintage movies into the modern era featuring a muted color palette and reclaimed, rustic materials. A variety of motorcycle paraphernalia evocative of the Southwest's legendary roving bands of bikers, Day of the Dead artwork, a back-lit custom menu board and a tequila display will be among the focal points of the space. Elements will also feature an outdoor drink rail, accessed through saloon-style swinging doors, for all-weather cocktails and snacks.
Chef Jose Garces
He's one of the country's most talented young chefs, winner of the Food Network's Iron Chef America and a James Beard award. His food draws crowds in Philly, Chi-Town, Scottsdale, and now Palm Springs.
Tinto Restaurant
Tinto (red wine in Spanish) is a wine bar and restaurant from Iron Chef Jose Garces inspired by the culinary-renowned Basque region of Northern Spain and Southern France. At Tinto, Garces presents his modern approach to traditional pintxos (Peen-chos), or Basque tapas, and a deep selection of area's premier wines and native cocktails.

Meeting facilities

Meeting Info
In the 1920s, Hollywood stars began decamping to Palm Springs to relax, party and rejuvenate. You can imagine more than a few screenplays were pitched around the pool. Today Palm Springs is a destination for meetings and events more than ever, seducing planners with 350 days of sunshine a year and abundant golf, shopping and desert curiosities.

Cool Hotel

We enjoyed our stay, but I wouldn't choose this hotel if you want a romantic getaway or a relaxing stay. It's a great place to hang out with friends by the pool, if you can find room- people were packed in the water and around the pool like sardines. Rooms are colorful. I do not recommend the mountain view, because it includes a view of the car park. The pool view is of a hundred people, but maybe you like that.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

It's a short drive to the main strip in town. Sometimes they shut the streets and a market pops up- food, hand made crafts, clothes- cute things to check out. There's also a bar with a karaoke night, which draws in a cool and quirky crowd.

Great Place to Stay in PS

Saguaro is a great place to stay in PS. The hotel is pretty big so don't expect a Boutique-like experience but you get a lot for your money here. Friendly staff, great service, fantastic pool and nice rooms. Many with pleasant views. I think it's a good value for everything you get.

Just what we needed

Special thanks to The Staff, specifically, but not limited to: the front desk folks, the pool bartender, the engineering technician, the amazing chef from El Jefe, the food delivery girl, the room cleaning person, and all who make this place click. We were looking for a day to rest and relax. One day turned into three.... we managed to fall in love again, ate our weight in grapes, got some sun, and can't stop smiling and laughing! The rooms are beyond comfortable, the staff amazing, and we'd recommend this place again and again.

Not what was presented

This hotel was not at all like what you said it was. A very old hotel and rooms very small. No complete TV channels available. This is more like a motel that you would stay at for one night if you were on the road to some where else.. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.. I may not look on this site anymore for hotels....
