Stayed here for week long business trip but would consider coming back for pleasure too. The location is great if you are interested in checking out Pasadena. Its a very short walk to old town Pasadena and a lot of great bars and restaurants. There seemed to be some nightlife but it wasn't raucous. It is also about 1.5 miles... More

This is our hotel of choice -- smack in the middle of Old Town, with great restaurants in walking distance (Cafe Bizou and Sushi A Float are two favorites), wonderful, large renovated rooms -- all topped by the magnificent service. I am a lifetime Marriott Platinum member (over 1,000 nights) and there is no Marriott that i prefer over this... More

This is one of the best hotels in Pasadena. Hotel is clean and staff are efficient and friendly. At the time of checkin I asked whether I could have a room with a mountain view, I was given a room with a very nice view of the mountains. The beds are very comfortable. Old Pasadena is walking distance from the... More

Our esteem for this hotel went down each of the four nights we stayed here. Initially impressed by the beautiful interior and excellent location for both walking and driving around Pasadena, we had our first disappointment when a mysterious $50 charge appeared at 3am during the first night. This was after a standard $80 hold had been placed on the... More

Spent 5 nights there last week and agree fully with "Great Location in Old Pasadena." Would add the public areas for lounging and for meals are the best that I have experienced in a Courtyard. We really like the "Bistro" concept - we love Starbucks products in the morning and nice wine bar in the evenings. Also loved the fire... More

The hotel is in a great location for a wander to the downtown core of Old Pasadena. Rooms were large with very nice decor. The bed too was very comfortable. Front desk staff were excellent. Valet parking is only a couple of dollars more than self park. However there is direct access to the car park from every floor so... More

We enjoyed our stay here for one night. Three sisters in a room with two queen beds. Easy walking to Colorado and Greene streets. We stayed on the mountain side - nice and quiet. Good bedding, lots of pillows. Poor lighting in the bathroom but good water pressure and nice towels. $17 per night to self-park. Friendly staff went out... More

The staff where highly efficient and friendly on checkin and the upgraded rooms are very nice and practical. To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised as its a major improvement over my last stay. The only downside is the chaotic ridiculous breakfast setup. Just about the most stupid inefficient breakfast experience I have ever encountered. So don't stay for the... More

I spent a few nights in this hotel for business. The location is walking distance to Old Pasadena, with plenty of restaurants and pubs / bars to choose from. The hotel itself is well maintained, clean rooms. Sink is not separated by door from main room, but outside toilet / bathroom. Beds were fine, and room spacious. I had view... More

The overall impression and everything related to this hotel was actually pretty good. It could be a four rating except for a few items. No thermostat in the room No safe in the room The wall mounted AC/Heat was very noisy. Breaking, amenities all good, room and bed comfortable, great provision of outlets to charge my phone and devices.
