Spotlight: The Saguaro Hotel
As the weather gets dreary here in New York, we find ourselves letting the mind wander to warmer climates. Enter The Saguaro, a newly opened hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, that provides the perfect backdrop for our imaginary travels. Designed by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat of Stamberg Aferiat Architecture, the hotel is a desert oasis, a vibrant escape set dramatically against the beiges and sands of Old Town Scottsdale. The design is meant to channel the palette of 12 indigenous wildflowers of Arizona, which both grounds the hotel and sets it apart from the landscape.
