The Saguaro, Palm Springs
A former Holiday Inn in the desert city of Palm Springs has been transformed with a playful Pop Art palette by Joie de Vivre Hotels. Reopened last year, the 249-room hotel – which once blended into the background of the Coachella Valley – now screams for attention. The Sixties-styled rooms are done out in a vivid hotchpotch of colours that shouldn't work, but does. At the centre of it all is a palm-shaded pool and the El Jefe tequila bar.
The Saguaro, 1800 East Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs (001 760 323 1711; jdvhotels.com). Doubles start at $158 (£99), room only.
