Courtyard Los Angeles Pasadena/Old Town
Ranked #2 of 31 Hotels in Pasadena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 9, 2011

We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard as we had a two day golf tournament at the golf courses by the Rose Bowl. The hotel is located just a few blocks from the main road that runs through old town Pasadena which is where all the shops and restaurants are located. And it is only about a five minute drive to the Rose Bowl. So very convenient location if you need to be based out of that area. The hotel guest rooms are clean and very well maintained. The lobby and public areas look recently remodeled and are a great place to hang out. We ate dinner at the hotel on one of the nights and the food was quite good. The service from both the hotel and restaurant staff was friendly and efficient. Parking is $15/night but you can park on the same level as your room which is very convenient so that you are not lugging baggage up and down stairs or elevators. I have no hesitations recommending this hotel for either business or leisure guests.

I give this property 4 stars, mostly based on service. I stay at a lot of Marriott's and this one has the best service by far. Everyone, from the valet to front desk are extremely personable and seemed to geuininly care about your stay. The lobby is updated and modern. The self parkging garage is adjacent to the hotel, which is great. The rooms were OK. The turn down service of mints and classical music was a nice touch, but the brown stains all over the walls were not so great. The rooms could use an update, especially the bathroom. Overall, I had a good stay. Stay here for the service and location.

Whenever I business travel in Pasadena, I stay here. The lobby is my favorite part about this hotel. There are little alcoves and private, comfortable sitting areas where you could have a cocktail, a cup of coffee, reflect by the fireplace, or have a small business meeting. The staff go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. Their recommendations for restaurants are spot-on! The rooms are nicely furnished, but a little on the small side. The sink and dressing area are small - very little counter space for toiletries/cosmetics. Nice place overall. Breakfast is great and there is a Starbucks on site! Lots of business travelers stay here.

I stayed here because of an appearance at the U.S.Court of Appeals. It was a very nice walk to both the Courthouse and downtown. Close to dining and shopping. Nice breakfast. Fitness center was good.

Room Tip: Get a room on facing the courtyard for a little more quiet.

I just returned from spending 4 nts. at this hotel with my 83 yr. old mother. We were visiting family in Glendale and needed a nice, clean hotel in a great location for exploring Glendale and Pasadena and this was PERFECT! You can walk to downtown from the front door, just steps away from shopping, dining, etc! The parking garage is easily accessible, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the service was amazing. Everyone is so friendly and attentive! I would recommend asking for a courtyard view and a higher floor for the quietest location. We had a view of the pool/jacuzzi and heard no street noise at all. Perfect for a city location!! I would definitely go back to this hotel! Loved it!

Room Tip: Courtyard view on higher floor!

Our stay was a five star experience at two star prices. Everything was first rate: the attentive, friendly staff, the clean, comfortable room, the superb location that allowed us to walk to most restaurants and shops in Old Town Pasadena, and the lovely lobby with its food and beverage choices. We had an excellent lobby breakfast with made-to-order omelets and wine before going out to dinner. We had our wine in the lobby because the pool area was full of guests having fun!

As stated previously, this hotel's major asset is its location close to Old Town shopping and dining. I also found the service and attitude of the staff to be "above and beyond". Parking is easily accessible and connects to each floor, so if you stay on the fourth floor - you can exit to the garage on the same level, so park on the same level as your floor for convenience. Although the hotel was sold out, there was never a lacking of adequate parking spaces in the garage. The amenities (shampoo, soap) are the same as a full service Marriott, rather than a Courtyard. Starbucks coffee is also available in the room, Each room has a minifridge and microwave as well as an larger LCD-TV, with multiple cable channels (more than the usual Marriott). Rooms are on the large size. The lobby and public areas have recently been renovated and are quite nice. The major con is that the rooms are in need of renovation. Older carpets, stained walls in the bathroom, older dated furniture, and the general lack of outlets near the bed. Cheap foam pillows also are no so nice, and the AC/Heater is a wall unit that is not thermostat controlled - i.e., you cannot set a temperature. I have stayed here twice and once at the nearby Hilton, and found this to be a better hotel - mainly because of location, amenities, and level of service. If they only renovated the rooms, the place would get 5 stars instead of 4.
