You can’t miss the Saguaro when you’re driving through Palm Springs. The trendy boutique hotel is easily recognizable (and often photographed) due to its bright façade of yellows, oranges, and pinks. Known for its lively pool scene and active events calendar, the Saguaro Palm Springs appeals to anyone looking for fun in the desert sun.
With 245 guest rooms, two restaurants, a freshly renovated event space, a spa, and popular party pool, the Saguaro has plenty to keep you busy during a desert getaway. Explore the desert on a cruiser bike, relax during a spa treatment, take a yoga session, or sway your afternoon away in a rainbow-colored hammock while your friends play bocce nearby. Check the calendar for upcoming events—normal weeks may include karaoke nights or movies on the lawn, while festival weekends (such as Coachella) feature poolside DJs and live performances.
As far as eating and drinking—you’re set. Try a boozy brunch pairing at Rocco’s Electric, where Chilaquiles Verde comes with a Michelada, and Chorizo Con Papas Burrito is served with a margarita. During the weekend, the poolside bar serves breakfast, appetizers—like almond-crusted local Coachella dates—and tacos. It’s worth extending your trip just to take advantage of Taco Tuesday and Thursday (“because one day is not enough”) at the hotel’s main restaurant, El Jefe.
Before you book, check for specials—especially if you’re organizing a bachelor or bachelorette party. Recent packages have included a late checkout, luxury pool floats, a bottle of champagne, and more with a two-night stay.
