We were in Pasadena for our daughter's wedding. During my professional life before retiring, I had spent many a night at various Courtyards by Marriott and knew what quality to expect. Like they said in an old Oldsmobile commercial, "This is not your father's Courtyard!" This conveniently located property in Old Pasadena is clearly a cut above and is nicely... More

I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Old Town Pasadena for 3 nights. The checkin went great, Staff were cordial, and had a smile and went the extra mile. Rooms were good, I overlooked the pool area. The happy hour was great, snacks and alcohol, very lively atmosphere. The old town was great, with the capital building, and Colorado St... More

Great Old Pasedena location and one of the nicest (if not the nicest) Courtyards I have stayed in . Although the brand renovations themselves may be similar property to property, the management and staff here make the difference -- attentiveness to guests, cleaning, upkeep etc. This one has large public lobby (to serve all those Rose Bowl fans no doubt)...

What I liked most about this hotel was the staff. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. The hotel was newly removed and rooms are spacious.I liked that the windows opened. I was there for business and there was a good desk and good wireless.

Located in the heart of Old Pasadena minutes away from the fun strip of restaurants, shopping and bars on Colorado Blvd, this Courtyard is definitely a good find. The hotel is getting a full makeover and rooms, hallways and the lobby is getting an update. I was fortunate to stay in an updated room and it was better than I... More

We stayed at this property numerous times, but our last stay was January, right after the Rose Bowl. Our rooms have always been 'splarkly clean', the check in is very speedy, and the customer service is excellent. They have a very nice breakfast/Starbucks area for morning food and coffee. There is a spacious pool area in the courtyard. I highly... More
