Opposite City College in Pasadena, on Colorado Blvd, this Hotel has an excellent location. The Huntington Library is a 15-20 minute walk away, old Pasadena and the Norton Simon Museum a short bus ride away (the bus stop is right outside the Hotel) and the Gamble House is a bus ride then 5 minute walk away.
I stayed in room 217, which was very quiet. The room was large and very clean, with a built in closet, iron and ironing board, microwave, refrigerator, desk and a table with 2 chairs. The bed was extremely comfortable. There was no safe. The bathroom was modern and spacious, with a particularly large shower recess with a built-in bench.
The free breakfast was excellent with cereal, pastries, toast, waffles and fruit. The service at the front desk was helpful and friendly. I was able to borrow an umbrella for my 3 day stay, and store my luggage on the last day. I was able to check into my room early.
The hotel has an elevator and a small pool area.
I would recommend this hotel as a very good value option for anybody staying in Pasadena.
