We just spent three nights at the Westin Pasadena in an Executive King room. It was enormous, clean, and very comfortable. The bathroom was oversized with a dual showerhead and extra towels. I did hear just a bit of street noise even on the 8th floor so it seems that the very low floors could be noisy. I didn't see the standard rooms but I'd guess that the executive upgrade is easily worth the $30.
Service was always pleasant and efficient, from the front desk to the bar to the restaurant, which includes a lovely patio. Breakfast was speedy and very tasty, although the staff seemed overwhelmed by the number of guests on Sunday morning. There is a shuttle that will take you within reasonable distances of the hotel and then return to pick you up. There's a mini-mart attached to the gas station across the street...but I'd steer clear late in the evening as it was a bit dodgy.
The only suggestions I'd make would be to upgrade the toiletries (they're cheap and generic) and the TV. Also, Westin hotels still charge an unbelievable amount (I think it was $12 per day) for internet access, with no free access even in common areas...hotels of lower standard seem to be able to offer free wireless, so it's baffling that Westin haven't progressed past this yet.
