The Saguaro in Palm Springs

The Saguaro in Palm Springs

The Saguro Hotel in Palm Springs is a brilliant colored resort in the desert of Coachella Valley.

The hotel is near the owner The Sydell Group’s first Palm Springs project, the Ace Hotel. On the heels of their successful launch of the Saguaro Scottsdale, Sydell assembled the same team of creative partners to help relaunch this hotel, also named The Saguaro [suh-warh-oh], after the iconic cactus of the Sonoran Desert.

The eccentric colors now adorn each balcony and patio and anchor the guestrooms, while also enlivening the indoor and outdoor public spaces. The color set follows the light spectrum, which in turn creates different perspectives of the hotel according to the time of day.

Iron Chef Jose Garces, a James Beard Award winner and one of the country’s best young chefs, opened Tinto, and El Jefe. Tinto is inspired by the renowned Basque region of Northern Spain and Southern France.  El Jefe is a cool celebration of the culture and cuisine of Mexico City, with a menu focused on the cuisine of what is known by locals as the “Distrito Federal.” With a premium tequila bar and lounge seating.
