The hotel is great proximity to Pasadena Old Town, easy distance of the Rose Bowl, Exhibition Hall, Ice Rink and numerous restaurants and shops.
The exterior of the hotel is dated but once inside it is the normal Sherton style. There is a gift shop in the lobby as well as a free wifi area. The bar is dark and dingy but with Old Town nearby there is no need to use it! The rooms are generous in size and clean. There is also a sizeable fridge in the room - handy as there is a supermarket Gelsons opposite. Starbucks coffee is also provided. The beds are Sheraton sleeper beds and oh boy are they comfortable! On the downside the air con units were dated and very noisy. I turned off mine and tried to open the window instead - but it only opened an inch. I asked for
housekeeping to service my room but no one did.The pool area is also a token gesture but clean and maintained. You would need to be up early to get a sun bed though.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a business trip or sightseeing in Pasadena, not as a vacation resort.More
