Highs & Lows

  • This hotel offers you all the quintessential desert vibes you’d expect in Palm Springs at a reasonable nightly rate.

  • The amenities are more than you could hope for with a rocking pool bar, on-site restaurant, coffee bar, daily yoga, and relaxed vacation-mode atmosphere.

  • The perfect place to get away with a group of friends. Whether it’s for a bachelorette weekend, a couple’s escape or a college friend reunion, this is an amazing location for getting the band together for some fun in the sun.

  • Wishing you could bring your favorite 4-legged friend with you to Palm Springs? Great! The Saguaro is ready to welcome your dog for a small $50 fee for your entire stay. Now that’s something to wag about.

  • Not looking to party? Oops…you may have missed the memo. From the music, to the pool service, to the spontaneous sunset dancing that tends to erupt without notice, you definitely are in the mix when staying at The Saguaro Palm Springs.

  • Sun is the name of the game when you’re in Palm Springs so if you expect to get your tan on by the pool you better wake up early to grab a lounger before they all get scooped up…I’m talking like before 9am.

I’m guessing not but here’s your chance with the newly opened Starbucks Reserve in Downtown Palm Springs. They offer an exotic menu of rare coffee experiences including siphon coffee which makes you feel like you’re part of some exclusive lab experiment.

Ever been to a Starbucks? Oh sure you have. Ever been to a Starbucks Reserve?

Come early to get your name in as they don’t accept reservations and there is always a wait. Everything on the menu is heaven for a breakfast lover, but don’t miss out on the Bacon Flight. Yes, you heard me…a flight of infused bacons to set you out on the right foot for the day ahead.

If you’re a fan of brunch (who isn’t) then you absolutely have to check out Cheeky’s

Not only is the terrain dreamlike and the photo ops priceless but while in town make sure to hit up Joshua Tree Coffee Company, Crossroads Café, and newly opened shop, The Station.

If you’re looking for the ultimate desert immersion then hop in the car and make the 50 minute trek to Joshua Tree National Park
