Highs & Lows

  • It’s pretty impossible not to feel happy the second you walk into the brightly colored lobby of The Saguaro. The décor is the perfect blend of desert chic and pop art. It’s joyful, light, and definitely makes you feel like you’re on vacation.

  • The location is one of the best in all of Scottsdale. Whether you’re visiting for Spring Training in March or not, the location puts you steps away from art, shops, restaurants, and the buzzy atmosphere of Old Town Scottsdale.

  • Every amenity is at your fingertips. You’ll find a lovely spa on the property, restaurant and bar offering pool service, two pools giving you the option to party with the cool kids or relax in true vacation bliss, and a coffee shop blending up fresh smoothies and breakfast eats for a quick morning ritual.

  • Wondering how you’ll get around town during your stay? Not to worry! The Saguaro offers cruiser bikes for guests to use at their leisure, which just so happens to be the perfect way to explore Old Town.

  • Looking to host an event? Look no further than The Saguaro! They boast a brand new Agave Complex making it the perfect destination for a meeting, celebration, or even a wedding! It faces out to a lovely park and is equipped with outdoor fireplaces and heaters for even the chilliest evenings.

  • If you find yourself at The Saguaro midweek, you may notice that the poolside bar is closed. They do have service phones available near the pool to order food and drink but you’ll likely have to wait a while for your order to make it out to you.
