Hotel at a Glance: The Saguaro Palm Springs
Bright splashes of lime green, coral, and fuchsia cover nearly every surface at the 4-star Saguaro Palm Springs. The hotel’s grounds and interiors feature sunshine-yellow pool umbrellas, pistachio-colored furniture, and rainbow-striped bedspreads. The architects say they drew inspiration from the 12 native desert wildflowers here. The hotel’s modern, funky vibe has even garnered the attention of the Los Angeles Times Magazine, the New York Times, and Condé Nast Traveler.
- The press says: The New York Times calls it “a hotel where you can rest your head on a rainbow.”
- Where you’ll stay: Guest rooms pop with color, and each comes with a private balcony or patio.
- Lounge poolside or go swimming with an inflatable flamingo in the outdoor pool.
- Where to eat: Saguaro’s onsite bar and restaurant, El Jefe, celebrates Mexican cuisine with a premium tequila bar and small plates, including tacos stuffed with pork or fish. All-new menus, created by a new executive chef in the restaurant, are available at The Rocco’s Electric, which is serving brunch on the patio. What’s more, each option of this deal includes a $30 dining credit per day.
- Find serenity with one of the hotel’s yoga classes or at the in-house spa.
Palm Springs, California: SoCal Resort Town with Midcentury Charm
Palm Springs is an oasis of outdoor recreation and old Hollywood glamour about 100 miles east of Los Angeles. Once the stomping grounds of Elvis Presley and the Rat Pack, the town still attracts A-list vacationers. Strolls through the Movie Colony take visitors past the former homes of Dean Martin, Bob Hope, and Marilyn Monroe. Furniture and clothing boutiques along Palm Canyon Drive embrace Palm Springs’ trademark aesthetic—what might be called Mad Men West.
The sun shines more than 300 days a year in Palm Springs, which means people can golf or hike in the nearby Agua Caliente Indian Canyons no matter the season. On the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, cars rotate 360 degrees as they carry passengers to Mount San Jacinto’s Mountain Station, located 8,516 feet above sea level. About 40 miles northeast is Joshua Tree National Park, which spans parts of the Colorado and Mojave Deserts. The 12 nature trails give hikers the chance to see desert bighorn sheep and black-tailed jackrabbits.
