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.

Very disappointed in my stay of three nights. I was put in one of the old rooms, I hope it was old, not one of the remodeled rooms. The bed and pillows were pitiful. I asked for a wake up call, none received. When I brought these issues to the front desk, in a polite manner. I was told sorry...

Rooms: This is a cosmetically renovated motel. It has been done well but I emphasize the renos are surface only which results in a combined effect. Decently pretty but cheap feeling. The beds were comfortable, everything worked - it was clean. Why did housekeeping open up or door at 8:15am after a brief and quiet little knock!? Were were definitely...

Restaurants, shopping, museums all within easy walking distance. This place set hotel trends back in 2002 when it converted from a tired old Double Tree into the hip James Hotel. They've managed to keep the hip and hipster vibe going. Do pack a set of ear plugs if you're noise sensitive. The doors and windows are still from the Double...

This was the second year we've stayed at the Saguaro for the Haunted Hotel Ball at Halloween. We had heard that the hotel and all the rooms had been renovated. To our surprise, not ALL the rooms had been renovated. Since we requested to be by the pool for the pool party, we ended up in a non-renovated room so...

Went to a concert at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts and the hotel was just across the promenade. Walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping in Old Town Scottsdale. Hotel was undergoing renovations but we did not feel inconvenienced in any way. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend! Great location!

I loved my stay! Staff was really nice. Room was clean with chic decoration. The bed was super comfy, soft linens, great pillows. Great location and close to Old Town Scottsdale attractions, walking distance from some restaurants. I was also close to the highway and got down to Chandler quickly.

A bunch of friends were in Scottsdale for a wedding and The Saguaro was recommended by a local. It's literally in the BEST location and has a bright and energetic vibe.

The location is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is good. However the room was only adequate. The chrome was worn off some of the bathroom fixtures. My wife got stuck in the bathroom when the sliding door got hung up on the floor guide, rm 3107. The room key entry gate to the parking lot...

This resort is in a great location. Right in the heart of Old Town and definitely walking distance to The Entertainment District. It's not the newest property, but it's bright and fun! And the food is fabulous. Definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Scottsdale. Also, do yourself a favor and walk to The Mission for dinner.

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
