About our Brand
The Saguaro hotels are those colorful hotels in Palm Springs, CA and Scottsdale, AZ. The bold color palette is the work of architects Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat, who have infused the property with hues that reflect the indigenous flowers that bring color to the desert landscape. Completed in 2012, The Saguaros were ground-breaking projects that added a bright and cheerful vibe to the neighborhoods that surround them and made each an Instagram favorite. Each property features a buzzing pool scene and a Mexican cantina, El Jefe in Palm Springs and La Señora in Scottsdale. Both restaurants take inspiration from the diverse street food of Mexico, featuring authentic small plates influenced by the zesty flavors of Mexico City.
