Bright, colorful, perfect for taking pictures! I loved how each room had a different themed color. Only downside was a strong cleaner odor in the hotel rooms.

Love the saguaro hotel, you really can't beat the insanely colorful decor and the epic pool parties they have on the weekends. The rooms are nice &I clean, and if you are Abel should try to request a room on the bottom floor so you can just walk into the pool.

Very hip and good looking crowd usually frequents this hotel too so make sure to look fresh.

A former Holiday Inn,The Saguaro has been re-designed into an only-in-Palm-Springs kind of hotel: room balconies surrounding the courtyard pool are painted a rainbow of colors, with palm trees and snow-capped mountains adding to the Instagram-ready view. A rustic Southwest theme and pops of color dress up the somewhat basic but comfortable rooms. The vibe at the hotel is super friendly and fun, with a ping pong table in the lobby, a Mexican bar-restaurant, and lively DJ’d pool parties on the weekend. The Saguaro is a great choice if you are looking for a fun place to stay near the heart of downtown Palm Springs at a reasonable price.

This hotel is a rainbow colored, cotton candy looking, modern oasis in the desert that is Palm Springs. What I love is the laid back vibe and the staff who have all been beyond helpful. The modern decor combines the vibrancy of the city but still retains the flavor that is so unique to the area. The rooms lack nothing and let me note that the decor is bright orange and purple. That may sound unappealing but it all works and the Bed is one of the best I've slept on in any hotel room I've ever been in. Is it the most glamorous hotel room? No. The vibe and decor have tons of personality that make this someplace I will visit again. Make sure you visit the Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar. To. Die. For!

If there's a hotel that uses design to better cater to the discerning LGBT tourist than The Saguaro Palm Springs, I haven't stumbled upon it yet. The rainbow-hued poolside exterior walls just straight up look like the kind of place a gay couple would feel comfortable kicking up their feet and relaxing in the desert sunshine. The Saguaro is certainly at the forefront of catering to the younger PS weekend warrior crowd, with summertime events like Splash House, a three day pool party across multiple venues, inviting music lovers to the Coachella Valley after the famous festival has passed each year.

Modern, trendy spot. DJ every weekend by the pool. No extra fees to bring your dog!

What use to be a Holiday Inn is now a hip, boutique-savvy but still fairly affordably priced Palm Springs hotel. Bright sunset and neon colors are on all the doors and walls, and the pool scene often has DJs spinning. Most of the rooms stretch the full width of the building, which gives you an exterior corridor door and either a patio or a balcony looking out over the pool. The downstairs restaurant, with Spanish tapas designed by Iron Chef Jose Garces, has fire pits for unwinding with a glass of spicy red wine.

If you must stay in a hotel, this is generally a hip and fun place to be. Great bar scene at El Jeffe (I like really like Tuesday taco night) and nice restaurant called Tinto.

Fun, funky little bar/restaurant in the Saguaro hotel. Go for the $2 Taco Tuesday's!

Fun bright hotel one year old outside downtown Palm springs. Great restaurant and cantina inside. Shuttle to downtown a few minutes away.

My stay at this hotel was okay. Checking in took a while, but the guy behind the desk was friendly. We went to one of the restaurants after we arrived. The place wasn't busy, but even still, they had one waitress. It took forever to get my friend's drink order taken. She also told us the kitchen was open when it wasn't. We didn't want to drink on empty stomachs, but by the time she told us the kitchen was closed, we already had drinks in hand. Took forever to get the check. The rooms were brightly colored and clean. The bed was super comfy and I loved our view of the pool and mountains. We hung by the pool for hours. Fun people watching, great DJ. Pool service food ordering was no hassle. Sunday AM my friend went to breakfast alone. It took her almost an hour to get Eggs Benedict. Pretty ridiculous. Breakfast on Saturday didn't take quite so long and the food was AMAZING. Check out took a while too as the guys behind the counter endlessly chatted up the people they were helping. Friendly is good, but it is important to acknowledge the fact that a long line is building. I'd be willing to go back and give the place another shot.
