The hotel was going through a renovation while we were there but we hardly noticed it. Wonderful new rooms, elegant lobby and walking distance to good restaurants and interesting stores. Parking structure directly linked to the hotel so it was very convenient.

We are Gold Marriott customers and I normally love staying at a Marriott but this is not your ordinary Marriott. We stayed one night, and because of one party there was a 20 minute wait for elevators since one was broken and the rest full. No staff to help, not a clean hotel, noisy rooms (you can hear every neighbor)... More

Thank you for being a loyal Marriott guest and we are so sorry your stay was not an exceptional one. In general I think we typically do a much better job, in your case I am disappointed that we did not. No two days are the same in any given hotel and sometimes the diversity of different groups all merging... More

A very good venue situated on the edge of Old Town Pasadena. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, etc. With an attached parking garage (15.00 per day) and a coffee shop/bar/short order eatery, What more could you ask for? A pool, a workout room, and a great breakfast (be nice and they will comp it for you at least once) and... More

We stayed in a king size bed room at this hotel in June, 2014 in town for the Playboy Jazz Festival at Hollywood Bowl. This is perfect location for this since there is a shuttle bus two blocks away that you can pre-pay to take to the Bowl. Hotel is very modern and nice with beautiful pool and counter style... More

This hotel anywhere else would probably deserve a three star. However, the location is perfect so here are the 4 stars! Walking distance to Colorado Blv and all sort of great restaurants and shopping. The rooms were nice, a typical Courtyard Marriot, comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff was very nice and friendly. For breakfast we used the Starbucks in... More

Oh my, I blasted this Courtyard last year, when I requested a quiet room and was placed in direct contact with renovations of rooms, waking up to drilling and hammering at 8:00! I received my reward this past weekend by getting one of those redone rooms! WOW! Jacuzzi tub, upgrades to desk, TV, a very comfy bed, fridge, microwave etc.... More

I went to Pasadena for a conference and spent one night here. The hotel is nice and serves some food and wine in the lively lobby. I found this Courtyard to be comfortable and clean, and the staff was very friendly.

Location is very good: tucking in a quiet corner 2 blocks away from the main shopping street of Old Pasadena. Restaurants shops aplenty. Close to 210 ramp/exit. Old building recently renovated with nice/modern lobby. Friendly, helpful staff. Room, bath is roomy. Microwave, fridge but no inroom safe. No central air conditioning but having a loud inroom air conditioner (biggest issue).... More

This was our first stay at this CY hotel and we were impressed. Now, not all of the CY hotels have had entire renovations, some may have a nice lobby and such, but once you get to the room it is "early nursing home". Yes, brand inconsistency is a CY issue, but not with this hotel. Lobby, common space and... More
