The bold color palette of this reimagined motel reflects the hues of 14 different desert wildflowers. Nearly every room has a balcony or patio and art installations and photography from local artists can be found throughout the hotel. The young crowd hangs by the pool, which has two hot tubs and a poolside bar with a menu from chef Jose Garces. The Saguaro has two restaurants: El Jefe serves small plates inspired by the street food of Mexico City; Tinto is a wine bar and restaurant with a menu of dishes from the Basque region of Northern Spain and Southern France. From $99.
