I will travel for colour. I’ve found the most colourful boutique hotel in the United States and I’ve brought back all the photos to show you! The Saguaro Scottsdale is a refreshingly different kind of hotel experience that is the most Instagrammable hotel. See all the beauty this place has to offer and where to get the best photos!
The Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona is hands-down the most colourful and Instagrammable place that I’ve ever stayed. Everything about it is vibrant and fun while still being a beautiful 4-star boutique hotel. It’s refreshingly different decor combines the natural beauty of the surrounding desert vegetation with colourful walls and furniture. Just stepping into the lobby will bring a smile to your face.
If you love taking photos, then this is the place for you to stay. As you’ll see in this post, my photographer Jessi of JGRAY PHOTOGRAPHY and I went a little crazy exploring every nook and cranny of the hotel. There were so many options that I ran out of outfits! Blogger problems. The Saguaro also has a sister hotel in Palm Springs that’s every bit as colourful. It’s next on my travel list!
The Saguaro is right in Old Town Scottsdale, a great location for shopping and dining out. There is so much charm in this area! Scottsdale is one of my favourite areas in Arizona.
A pool day in October was just what this Canadian girl needed after leaving a foot of snow back at home. The Saguaro pool is splendidly adorned with bright yellow pool-side loungers, umbrellas, and cabanas. It’s open daily from 6am-10pm and you can literally ring up pool service food and drinks from the nearby pink telephone. Beautiful pink bougainvillaea flowers surround both pool areas. The large rectangular pool is a social space, playing upbeat music during the day. The circular pool offers more of a quiet space with a calming waterfall, shaded loungers and hammocks.
One additional super cool thing is that if are local to the Arizona area, you can become a Social Club member! For only $300 per year, you get pool, spa and fitness facility access. You can bet that I’d be a member if I lived closer, even just for the photo content.
Alright, I know there are other important things to know when staying at a hotel, other than if it is Instagram-worthy. The Saguaro has a 24 hour gym, cruiser bikes, and an in-house spa. The hotel is very reasonably priced too. I book us a pool view double room and we were pleasantly surprised to have a massive room with two master bath areas, a sitting room with television and fridge plus a separate bedroom. Plus we also had a double balcony! I highly recommend the pool view, you can’t beat it!
To get full views of all of the great places to take photos, make sure to take time to explore the entire hotel on foot. Each stairwell is a different, vibrant colour. The pink fireplace area outside of the restaurant is just begging to be on your feed. And don’t miss snapping a photo beside the white stucco walls at the side entrance, right under the Saguaro Scottsdale sign!
