What better way to compliment Palm Springs’s desert terrain than with boldly hued overnight accommodations? That’s what New York-based Stamberg Aferiat Architecture did when conceptualizing the rainbow color scheme of the newly opened Saguaro Palm Springs, a 245-guest room boutique hotel located in the Coachella Valley.
Originally constructed in 1977, the three-story structure captures the area’s distinct modernist architecture, fusing it with colorful eye-popping exteriors and interiors. Conveniently located at the corner of Sunrise and East Palm Canyon Drive, the hotel provides a relaxing oasis in the middle of the desert. An Olympic-sized pool serves as the hotel’s courtyard centerpiece, an ideal spot for sunbathing or lounging. Afterwards, go to Tinto for chef Jose Garces’s Basque-influenced cuisine or El Jefe for Mexico City-inspired small plates.
When searching for a retreat that’s both relaxing and pleasing to the eye, the Saguaro Palm Springs nails it with its hip vibe, just at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains.
