For the price, this is a great bed and a great pool. The hotel restaurant is tasty and Aurora at the front desk made up for an unwanted staff visit with a late checkout. If you are in Scottsdale and you want to chill out at a reasonable price I would recommend it. We were very pleased.

Hi SensLaron,

I enjoyed reading your review, thank you for that. You mentioned the "great" beds and "great" pool, clearly 2 reasons we hear often a compliments to our hotel. I would like to thank you for 2 of your other mentions; Price Value and Aurora. Yes, we believe we are a great value for the Old Town Scottsdale area. And Aurora, well she is a tremendous assest to your hotel. Trust me, she is a gem! I will certainly share your comments with the team, especially Aurora.

We hope to see you again soon!

Take care,

Greg Joines

We just stayed one night, and I wish it had been more. Staff was very helpful and efficient. Rooms very clean and comfortable, with quirky, brightly coloured decor.Did not get to use the pool/spa area, but it looked lovely.Easy walk to the Main St Arts district, with fun shops and restaurants. Looking forward to a longer stay in future!

Hey bookgirl20,

It was so much fun reading your review, certainly it was greatly appreicated. I will share with our staff all of your kind words. They do an amazing job provide awesome service and taking care of the facilities.

So glad you enjoyed the Old Town Scottsdale area, so much to do for everyone. It is truly a great location.

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.

Next time stay longer!

Take care,

Alan Klein

We had a wonderful time at The Saguaro. The staff was excellent: friendly, helpful, smiling. Our room was clean and the bed so comfy. Our room overlooked the small pool and I loved the sound of the waterfall in our room. The bright colors, the delicious food at Distrito and the small coffee kiosk in the lobby all made our stay fabulous! We could walk to Old Town Scottsdale. This hotel was quiet a quiet retreat in the middle of the city. We had a suite so our room had both a great walk in shower and a soaking tub that you could almost swim in.

Hi Allans1095,

I hope this finds you well. Thank you so much for the review which you have written. I will certainly share your compliments regarding the excellent friendly smiles, with the entire team. It is most certainly appreciated.

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 am so glad you found the colors to be pleasant.

Our resturant, Distrito, is operated by Iron Chef Jose Garces. They provide delicious entrees. I am so glad you had an opportunity to enjoy.

LOL, I had heard many compliments regarding the "soaking tub", which I experienced. That would certainly be a welcomed amenity at home.

For now, take care, and hope to see you soon.

This was our first stay at the Saguaro and boy, was it awesome! We walked in delighted by all of the brightly colored decor, and in awe by the TWO weddings taking place. Greeting us at the desk was Tatiana, where she gave us a quick checkin and thorough guidance. She was extremely accommodating and very helpful. She definitely made our 1st stay there amazing. The valet guys were super quick and friendly too. We appreciated their service as they were very helpful as well. We will continue to stay there when we travel to Scottsdale (& tell all of our friends too). Great location, rooms are trendy- not too pricey, fun ambience, and awesome staff...hands down everything we wanted.

Dear Michelle D,

Thank you so much for your review. It is certainly most appreciated. We take great pride in provided unique and geniune experiences to each and every guest. Perhaps that is why so many couples come to the Saguaro for their wedding and overnight accommodations, as you seen.

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.

Oh, dont let me forget to personally thank you for your mention of Tatiana. She is AMAZING, such a great personality. She truly wants to connect and please everyone, for that we are honored to have Tati on our team. I will certainly share your comments with Tati and the entire team.

For now, take care.

This is my second stay at this property. And whenever I'm in Scottsdale, I'll look for this hotel.

All Joie de Vivre Hotels are charming. But this one is particularly awesome. First is the location: Smack dab in the center of it all. Easy walk to Old Town and all other great spots in Scottsdale for dining and nightlife.

Service is even better. Right from check-in to check-out, employees go out of their way to make you feel special and welcome. From dinner reservations to handling a Fed Ex delivery of an important package, they took care of everything with efficiency and care.

The rooms are, honestly, not going to be everyone's cup of tea. This is an older property that's been spruced up to look fresh and young. But the property does show a bit of its age. Some will love the decorating (bright colors), and some won't. I think it's pretty cool. But friends of mine think the place looks garish.

Sliding doors on the bathroom, so be warned -- if that sort of thing bothers you.

Like any old-school hotel, there can be lots of pool action. Get a room that suits what you like!

Room Tip: Higher floors tend to be a bit quieter.

Hi Bret F,

Thank you for your honest review, it is certainly appreciated. You are correct, the location is the BEST! Old Town Scottsdale has everything; shopping, resturants, bars, etc. An AMAZING location.

Oh yes, THANK YOU so much for your kind words regarding our service staff, I will certainly share. While our property is older, as you indicated, we work extremely hard to overcome that with your service levels. Our pools, fitness center, and Iron Chef Jose Garces Resturant all offer an unique experience.

Will we see you again soon?
