Most recent review:

What I liked:

Location. Upside of no valet is not having to pay a valet or parking fee.

What the hotel could do better:

No valet upon arrival. No one to help with bags. No one so much as said hello when I walked in. Paid extra for "mountain view" room, which was at parking lot level, with an eye-height concrete wall. Complained and fortunately was changed to a higher floor so that I could see the mountains I paid to see. Long, dreary hallways and multiple doors to pass through to get to an elevator (with no valet to help). Large, sparsely furnished room. All in all, feels very "cheap" and "downmarket."

Hotel Description

In a few short years Palm Springs has gone from nostalgia act to youth movement — while it’s still got loads of mid-century appeal, it’s expanded its demographics quite a bit, including a clientele that wasn’t born yet the last time Palm Springs was hip. This, not incidentally, is more or less the mission of the San Francisco–based Joie de Vivre group: boutique style with a broad appeal, hip but never alienating. The Saguaro is their entrée into the California desert, and its 249 colorful rooms are a welcome addition to the south side of Palm Springs (just down the road from the Ace, also not incidentally).

The pool scene is the center of the social life, no surprise in this town, but it’s hardly the only space worth spending time in. El Jefe is a Mexico City–style eatery, and Tinto branches out into Basque tapas and Spanish wines, both helmed by Iron Chef alum and James Beard award winner José Garces. There’s a spa that similarly blends the accessible and the luxe, which might be a shorthand expression of the Saguaro’s whole mission — it’s stylish but inclusive rather than exclusive, and the comforts never cross over into crass extravagance. Palm Springs has rarely looked so up to date.
