About our Brand

Saguaro is that colorful hotel in the desert. Saguaro is a good time. It’s not that complicated. There’s plenty of sunshine, a buzzing pool scene and lots of local flavor. 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.
