We have traveled the world on business and pleasure, and are discriminating in our tastes.
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, part on SPG points, and part with a special pre-paid Sheraton price that was on their web site. We hoped for an upgrade to the club floor for the continental breakfast and evening snacks, but that did not happen, as they said they were full. The property is in excellent repair and we have no complaints there. Also, it is only a half block from Paseo Colorado (full of shops and restaurants), and a nice supermarket, so we were quite happy with a light breakfast and an evening meal that only required a short walk across the street. The location is definitely a high point. We had considered the Pasadena Westin, but are happy with our choice. While many talk about the location relative to Old Town Pasadena, we were underwhelmed with that district. Very happy with the location of the Sheraton, and it was a great base for visiting the top locations around LA.
Now for some details: Our first room was a King that was directly across from the vending/ice room. We thought that might be noisy, but I put a towel across the bottom of the door, and it was fine. However, the air conditioning unit was very very loud and came on occasionally (it was also over powered, and would come on for just 2 or 3 minutes to lower the temperature by several degrees) and this was a significant negative. It was loud enough to waken most sleepers. The other negative was that there was very little extra room to move about in the room.
While we didn't complain, we did suggest that if there was a better room we would appreciate a change, and they moved us to a jr. suite just a few doors down from the first room. This room had much more space, and being on the north side, did not get hot during the day and did not need the air conditioning unit to turn on. Just lovely for the last 2 days of our trip. I should note that both rooms had a small fridge, and the in-room coffee maker was extremely easy to use, had Starbucks coffee, there were LCD TV's, and outside of the noisy AC in the first room - we would rate this hotel as superior. The King bed was very comfortable, and the pillows (though not down) were also good. This was another big plus. The front desk had a list of restaurants, and they had some suggestions for those of us who have a higher level of taste. We did not use the small pool, as it was still too cold outside.
We would definitely stay here again. (If my wife is happy, I'm happy).
