Check in was quick & efficient. Unlucky us we got a room that had not been renovated. The only rm avail was king w/sleeper sofa. Rm #174? was too small for 2 adults & 1 teen. Could not open closet bc door was too small. If I wanted to use the iron board I wouldn't be able to get it... More

The hotel is located a few short blocks north of Colorado Blvd. which is the main drag. It is a short walk to the Paseo Colorado mall. The Norton Simon art museum is several blocks east, and the smaller PMCA and Pacific-Asia museums are not far to the west. The room was not luxurious, but was a good size, There... More

This Hotel is vey nice and close to the 134 freeway. The hotel is being remodeled but we arrived after it stopped for the day and left before it started in the morning. The staff were very friendly and professional. We received a small gift for being Marriott club members. We were put in a newly remodeled room. It was... More

We love this hotel and come here every chance we get. Everything is simply excellent. I have even become comfortable in the new lobby,which serves a delicious egg-white and spinach breakfast sandwich. The prior manager, Tim Bristol has been promoted to a new, bigger job -- and even he kept his office in the hotel. Now, they have remodeled and... More

And that Tim Bristol character you are referring to….yes he has been promoted, but graces us with his presence frequently. Thank you again for being such a loyal customer. We truly... More

Stay here for business every couple months. The rooms were showing major signs of their age, but they finally are renovating the rooms. I was on the verge of switching hotels in Pasadena, but now the rooms are clean, updated for business traveler, and modern. Just wish they would have installed thermostat instead of keeping window a/c. Upgraded toiletries would... More

It had been a couple of years since I stayed here, but my experience in January was consistent with prior experiences, which were all very good. The hotel had been remodeled since my last stay, with many upgradges to the common and dining areas. Food in the cafe is very good, and the hotel has a nice outdoor courtyard with... More

The hotel is pretty big, there are two sides to it. One side is under renovation and the other side is the to be renovated side. We were placed in the to be renovated side, so the room looked very dated. They also only have one elevator, so some what of inconvenience if your room is really far away from... More

I stay here for business when in Pasadena. It's a short walking distance to the shopping strip on Colorado Bvd. It's a busy hotel with business travelers. There's ample parking in the back of the hotel. Book early as it fills up pretty quickly during the week. Good value.

I was working at the Federal Courthouse--what a great location for both the Courthouse and all of old town. Room was nice and staff was accommodating. Breakfast has everything you could want. I'll stay here again.
