The Saguaro Mommy & Me Getaway

May 2, 2017 No Comments
 
I already wrote about why Palm Springs is so special to me and how it scorched its way into my heart throughout my childhood. It is for those reasons that sharing this special place with my daughter is all the more fulfilling. She’s growing to love it too. What kid doesn’t love splashing around in the pool all day and staying in a cozy new bed? My daughter used to refer to Palm Springs as “the white hotel” after we stayed in, you guessed it, a minimalistic white hotel when she was quite young.  But that all changed when we decided to do a mid-week getaway right before everyone descended on the area for Coachella. She now prefers “The Rainbow Hotel.”


For a travel blogger, the Saguaro seems like an obvious choice.  I mean, hotels don’t get more Instaworthy than the colorful and chic Saguaro Hotel & Pool (you can get day passes to the pool if you are staying elsewhere) situated a bit away from the main boulevard of Palm Springs proper. But before it hosted creative retreats and gave fashionistas bright backdrops, it was a place that my father and I spent many lazy days. The hotel is big enough to engage with many other desert rats, but feels like a boutique property with so much detail given to its aesthetic. Days at the pool fill the best parts of my memory. I remember live steel drums and BBQs around lunch time. Now the scene is great for adults and kiddos with a full bar and an excellent menu. The hotel provides a load of pool floats (think lobsters and flamingos) and people like to bring and share their own! 
 
The Saguaro makes it easy to stay contained at the property without wanting for much more.  Sure we ventured out at night for an entertaining teppan dinner and went for breakfast at The Ace Hotel, but we never felt stuck at the Saguaro throughout the day. There are bikes to rent to explore the area and a stellar Mexican restaurant on the property. Honestly I can’t think of many places where I would go with the family, a group of girlfriends, or by myself but the Saguaro may just be it!
