Scottsdale is the place to go for art, shopping and nightlife in the Valley of the Sun. Now there’s a hotel creating even more desire around the desert experience. The Saguaro has arrived, bringing with it a new look to where Old Town, the Arts district and Civic Center Mall meet. Bright, lush and vibrant, it’s a fresh face amid Scottsdale’s buzzing downtown scene.

If Scottsdale is where the old west found its modern groove, the Saguaro sits at the main intersection. We’re next to Old Town, the historic quarter where cowboys meet the cutting edge. The resort overlooks not only hitching posts and saloons but the Civic Center Mall, a 21-acre urban park home to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) and the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. The ever-trendy Scottsdale Fashion Square mall isn’t much further.

A stay here is about relaxation, nature and yes, our two famous pools. Both are easy walks from every room, heated and ringed by cabanas. The Saguaro Spa welcomes you to de-stress you even further. When it’s time to recharge, the comprehensive fitness center will get you looking your best for around the poolside bar.
