We stayed here one night after a week long live-aboard scuba trip. It was so beautiful and exactly what we wanted after a week on a small boat. Comfortable bed, strong shower, great bath amenities, beautiful pool (which was the perfect temperature for a hot summer day) and very friendly staff. The price was amazing for our suite, which had great seating to visit with friends. Very nicely decorated too. As a matter of fact, the entire hotel is an explosion in color. I loved it. A very cool hotel. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for just one night on our way from Phoenix to Sedona. This hotel is a bright, colorfull place to stay. Staff is friendly and willing to help you out, giving you directions for a restaurant or other place to go. One of the bellboys gave us some good tips for our way to Sedona and which way was best to take to have some nice views.

Hotel room gives me the feeling of an older hotel room ehich has been upgraded. Bed is a little squeeky and from some items you can tell they have been in the hotel for longer time. Like someone mentioned before I also have to name the AC which makes a lot of noise when it is turned on. The room has a decent size and the patio (when you're on ground level) is great to have your own breakfast in the morning. Lots of stuff in your room although some items are heavily priced, for example a bottle of water for $5. Same bottles could be bought at the supermarket for less than $1 a piece.

Pool area of this hotel is really nice. Great place to hangout and relax. Beds are comfortable and there are enough umbrella's to keep the sun away from you.

Hi Stefan,
Thank you so much for your kind and honest review. We are so proud of our atmosphere, our team has worked hard, and will continue to maintain such a "great atmosphere", ultimately creating unique and fun experiences for our guest.
The 12 colors used throughout the property represent the wildflowers which are indigenous to the Arizona desert. This certainly makes for a unique collaboration between landscape and architecture.
I look forward to sharing all the details of your review. And certainly hope to see you in Old Town Scottsdale in the future.

Take care,

Alan Klein
General Manager

We stayed here for only one night while visiting the Phoenix/Sedona/Scottsdale area in early September. When we first drove up, I thought the hotel was closed because it was so empty, given the time of year. The lobby was super trendy, decorated very nicely. Like other reviewers have said, it's clear the hotel was recently updated. The hotel is decorated in extremely bright, vibrant colors (our room was electric lime green), and funky, trendy decor. The room had some unique, vintage decorations and a nice walk-out patio with two chairs. Bathroom had a sliding warehouse-esque door, which was difficult to close. Bed was comfy but very squeaky, so every time you rolled over you woke your companion. Bathroom was small, but worked for two people. Pool area was awesome and had a great party atmosphere with colorful cabanas and a waterfall. Hotel is in walking distance of some great restaurants in Old Town Scottsdale, like the Mission. Highly recommend it for delicious Mexican food.

We would definitely stay here again when visiting, if the price is right.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have walk-out patios, some facing the pool.

Dear Mary in Milwaukee,

Thank you for your kind review. August and September are historically our slow season. Yes, our proximity to Old Town Scottsdale certainly provides for much to see and do in the area. The 12 colors used throughout the property represent the wildflowers which are indigenous to Arizona, desert "Art Deco". We certainly look forward to your return to the Saguaro Scottsdale.

Best,

Alan Klein

This is a lovely little hotel, with very nice staff and a beautiful pool.
I was here only one night, but was very comfortable, and wished I could have stayed longer.
my only gripe was that the balconies were very small, and the room service food was terribly salty.
Also, I am a big believer that desert towns should offer free water in the rooms, and not charge in the minibar.

Dear SamiKnight,

Thank you so much for your review, it is greatly appreciated. I will share your comments with our friendly staff. So glad you enjoyed the pool, as many have done so throughout the summer. It is so much fun, great music, food and delicious beverages, all pool side. I can appreciate our thoughts regarding water in the desert, great point. I will certainly share with the management team. We do offer complimentary infused water station at the hotel entrance. Please come back, stay longer! Old Town Scottsdale has so much to offer.

Take care,

My friends and I stayed here for three nights as a small getaway. We spent time at the pool and while it was busy, it wasn't annoyingly so. The service was great at the pool - Marcus was especially friendly and attentive. The gym was amazing - big, well-ventilated and fully stocked with towels and cold water. The rooms were normal - not too big but not tiny, and the shower pressure was good. Some of the A/C units are louder than others so if it's really too loud, just request another room. The Distrito restaurant left much to be desired. Skip it - the food was mediocre and expensive except for the guacamole. That is the only dish I'd recommend. Yes it is a bit dated, but the friendly bell boys, concierge and pool service made up for anything that the hotel lacked. I'd come back!

Room Tip: The upper level rooms have balconies where the walls lean in - there is not even enough room for a chair. If you really want to be able to step outside for air or a cigarrette, request a bottom level room with a pool view. Also - rooms facing the pool might get noisy on the weekends since they do play music from 12 - 6.

Hi Sirena,
Small get-a-ways are fun! Sounds like you and your friends had a nice time, thanks for sharing. Over the summer many other guest have shared similar experiences, our goals is to offer something for everyone. Thank you for your comment regarding Marcus, he is amazing. I look forward to sharing your comments with Marcus, he will light up! And true, we are so proud to have an incredible fitness center, it is top notch. Unfortunately your Distrito experience will less than impressive, for that I am sorry. I will share with my team. They truly want to provide a great experience for all, sorry to hear that was not your case
