I am just finishing my stay and I had several disturbing incidents. For starters, I was showering this morning and was all sudsed up with shampoo when the water slowed to a cool trickle. I finished up, fortunately rinsing out the soap before the water cut out completely. I called the front desk and was told that they were doing...

We were hesitant to stay here because of several negative reviews. We stayed in a renovated room that was very nice. I could not pick that electrical outlets were not placed conveniently in the room, but this was not a big deal. The pool area was well maintained. The people at the front desk were responsive and very pleasant. What's...

Positives: Friendly staff, convenient location to Old Town Scottsdale, Affordable Negatives: Old tired rooms, the property/rooms have not been maintained well and desperately need an update. It seems that the hotel is starting some kind of renovation, as evidenced by all of the bare mattresses outside leaning against walls of one of the buildings, but I always think it is...

We just checked out of this property and wanted to write a quick review. I loved this place. It is recently redecorated/upgraded in a very retro motif. It's fresh and clean. The common spaces include several pools and a nice gym. The staff were great, everyone was happy, positive and attentive. Although the breakfast we had on property was average...

had a company event here. The room and property were worn and dirty (rust on fixtures in the really small bathroom for example.) Room was depressing, but by far the worst thing was the noise. Saguaro is right between the bars and a hospital. My room was right off a very busy street with sirens going all night long. Then...

the Saguaro Hotel was a relaxing end to a road trip through the Southwest. Our stay was prior to high season, at the beginning of October. Rooms were on three levels, in separate buildings with exterior entrances along covered hallways. Doors to rooms were painted in various bright colors. The rooms had a mini-fridge. Ice machines where down the hall...

Very contemporary hotel that's a bit tired. Room was very roomy but again, tired. Outlets fir phone and laptop totally inconvenient behind or under furniture. Wasn't my first choice. Disappointed with the extra "resort fee" and value for the room.

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
