The Saguaro | Scottsdale, Arizona
When the Saguaro opened its doors in November 2011, it injected a much-needed shot of fresh energy into Scottsdale’s downtown district. The rooms, accented with punchy neon shades and Mexican furnishings, are spacious and comfortable, but it’s the property’s amenities that steal the spotlight. If you need to perk up, look no further than a custom-roasted cup of joe at celebrity chef Jose Garces’ Trading Coffee Kiosk. Unwind with one (or more) of more than 100 tequilas and a smart selection of Mexican street eats—the vegetarian chile relleno is both health conscious and satisfying—at Distrito. Torch off some of those calories at the airy, well-equipped fitness center, then calm both body and mind at the spa and one of the two scenic pools (4000 North Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale, Arizona; 480-308-1100).
