It has neither old world charm not new world service an amenities. For crying out loud, people, if the pool is gonna be closed, mention it. That was the sole reason I picked this hotel without a restaurant (and don't tell me the counter thingy in the lobby is a restaurant). Clean and in good shape but a Howard Johnsons... More

Nice room, seems somewhat recently renovated. I had a room with a couch and I really liked it. Doesn't have a thermostat, but has a heating/cooling forced air unit that makes it difficult to control the temperature in the room. Fitness room is kind of a tiny joke. Three treadmills, two elliptical, a bike, one bench and some nice dumbells... More

I stayed at this property one night while on business in the area. Check in staff were friendly and efficient. My room on the third floor was spacious with plenty of outlets for charging electronics. TV mounted over the work desk was hard to view without backing away from the desk, making it difficult to work on your computer and... More

The busy season is the Tournament of ROSES Parade and Rose bowl game. This hotel charges more than usual during this time, but it is worth every dollar you spend. You are in short walking distance to everything. I travel in a wheelchair and I had no problem getting around the hotel or anywhere in Pasadena. Everyone is so friendly... More

If you depend at all on Internet access when you travel, DO NOT STAY HERE. Worst I have ever seen. Signal strength throughout the hotel is so weak, it will take 5 minutes to load one page. If this was not a problem, it would be a nice hotel but lack of Internet is ridiculous. Staff is friendly and helpful,... More

I am genuinely so sorry that you had challenges during your recent stay. On occasion with heavy traffic, speeds can slow down a bit. During your recent stay, this was not the case. There was a catastrophic hardware failure of which our internet provider Guest-tek did not have an immediate replacement part. This is the reason for the challenges you... More

great location, good price at around 140/night, clean business level accommodations, room layout was a little strange, bad feng sheui in that sense, but would stay again, have to pay for parking and the self park garage was a little tricky to access

This is a typical Marriott hotel, clean, comfortable, well staffed and well located. The rooms are comfortable (the beds excellent) and the hotel has all the amenities that you might need. What sets it apart is that it is in walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars and a multitude of shopping. We had a very pleasant stay here and... More

This hotel is located very nice area with fancy restaurants and shops. This lodging is not cheap, either. However, the carpet on the hallway looks old. More problematic is drainage systems, sink and shower. The bedding, the couch, lights and the desk/chair set in the room look nice. But 2% short from the perfect to say they did renovation...

Thank you for your feedback and positive recognition of our staff. As it relates to physical aspects of the hotel, the carpeting is new and just over a year old but perhaps needed some additional attention. Every area of the guest rooms was fully renovated with the exception of the tubs. Plumbing in general has not been an issue, however... More

The hotel was renovated in 2014 and is very clean. Customer service is more than we expected, even surpass some high end hotels. The manager Michael even went out of his way to help us on a time urgent occasion, which we really appreciate very much.
