The courtyard is an open, central space, overlooking mountains and glaciers across the water. The property, which borders the courtyard, is divided into three buildings connected by three wooden corridors. To the sides, one will find the guest rooms, while behind, the raised main building houses common spaces and amenities.
Palm Springs has a plethora of appealing places to stay, including the new Saguaro hotel, recently renovated by the architects Stamberg Aferiat. It's one of the more affordable spots: rooms cost as little as $99. Which means you’ll have a few extra bones to spend on the astounding guacamole at hotel bar, El Jefe; a meal at Iron Chef Jose Garces’s restaurant Tinto; or a drink at the might-as-well-be-done-by-Barragán pool.
