Modern hotel in Palm Springs

Take one franchise hotel with an outdated design, add some colorful paint, a little branding and voila... a super cool weekend getaway destination! The Saguaro hotel, located in South Palm Springs on East Palm Canyon, just recently opened in February 2012. Saguaro means large cactus in Spanish and there is no question that the design of this hotel fully utilized the Latin love for color.

The design of their typical guestroom uses just as much color as the exterior. The green apple furniture against a yellow wall is risky no doubt, but the right shades of each color makes for a fun outcome. Streamlined furniture and modern desk lamps are a nice contrast to the basket woven dinette set in the far corner.

The restaurant design of Tinto is just as cool as the rest of the hotel, but rather than lots of color, they took a more natural approach. Featuring modern pendant lighting and lots of wooded furniture, this outdoor patio has a very easy and relaxing vibe, perfect for heading to the pool after a bite to eat.

The transition to the interior of the restaurant maintains that modern yet natural aesthetic. This wine bar and restaurant is inspired by the culinary-renowned Basque region of Northern Spain and Southern France.
