If you are visiting Glendale, California, and want to be walking distance from the major restaurants, stores and shopping areas them I recommend you consider this delightful hotel. It's not your typical motel/hotel...not even close. It's what you would expect in a small hotel in a European city. There's no parking area in front or even a drop off area. They do have free parking on the 2nd floor of a parking garage directly behind. Reaching the lobby is a hike up a very long flight of stairs. Some of the rooms are 1 additional flight above the lobby. The rooms are small but very well appointed...very comfortable bed, large flat screen tv, free internet, and a very large bathroom with both a spa tub and walk in shower. I stayed 1 night to attend a family function being held a few blocks away. It was a joy to be able to walk to/from the event. In the morning I had breakfast at Portos's Bakery & Cafe. The owners are probably Cuban. I swear it's worth the 4 hr round trip drive from San Diego to eat there again. It's easy to see why Sunday morning it was jammed with people buying their incredible baked goods or for breakfast. Having lived in Puerto Rico for many years it was a joy to have Cuban coffee, quesitos, pan tostado, fresh squeezed OJ, and see many familiar items on the menu. There had many traditional American fare items on the menu and once again the cakes and pastries were incredible. There was a line of probably 30 people waiting to buy baked items to take out. They also have places in Burbank and Downey.
