We booked this hotel through hotwire, and did not know what we were getting. Even after we found out the name and read the reviews were were not sure what were getting into. This boutique hotel definitely surprised us as it turned out much better than we expected. The check in process was smooth and the attendant very helpful. The room was clean, big and the bed very comfortable. There was free laundry which we took advantage off, and free wifi. The breakfast was simple and worked out well for us. Cereal, danish, muffins, toast, coffee, juice. The best part of the hotel was it's beautiful pool which was a great size. The weather was really good when we were there, so I was able to take full advantage of the pool. Also the hotel grounds had the most lovely garden and flowers, and was very well maintained and pretty. Check out was at 12pm, later than most hotels, which meant we were able to comfortably use the pool, shower and leave. We almost wanted to stay another day in Pasadena because of how comfortable we were at the hotel. The location was very good, right across the library, with many restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Pasadena.
