“True customer service”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We were so impressed with the friendliness of the staff and willingness to accommodate our needs. Everyone from the front desk to the bar to the coffee/breakfast bar, even the housekeeping staff, were sociable yet professional. A small problem with our bill was handled without delay. The room was clean (with no room deodorant smell) and the beds were so comfortable. The food at the bar was excellent! If I had any complaint it was that there is no elevator in the parking tower. We chose self-parking and had to walk down three levels with our suitcases to the first level to enter the hotel.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at the Hilton Pasadena and please know that your time in leaving such comments is greatly appreciated - I am pleased to read that you were so impressed by the friendliness of our staff and their willingness to accommodate your needs! We absolutely take great pride in upholding our service culture and thank you for confirming that we continue to uphold such standards. I will be sure to share your comments with our staff and personally recognize each department from the breakfast bar team to the housekeeping staff.

Thank you for your comments as well regarding the non-existent elevator in the parking tower, unfortunately the parking structure is managed and owned by a 3rd party which has not yet installed an elevator. For future references, please feel free to use the valet parking option which is $19 for HHonors members (free to sign up at the desk), only $1 more than the self-parking option of $18.

Thank you for your patronage and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Carl Sprayberry

Not much to say one way or the other about this hotel.

The location is in a sweet spot close to the convention center. I could have saved on a rental car and parking since you can walk just about everywhere.

For a drought the water pressure in the shower is outstanding and there is plenty of hot.

No fridge in the room but there is a little coffee maker. It is one of those 'green' facilities and they have an AC unit that shuts off if you are not in the room.

The staff is courteous and helpful. If you are part of the Hilton Honors program WiFi is free and fast.

I bet it gets crazy busy at the end of college football season.

This is a great location, walking distance to almost everything in Pasadena. However, this hotel lacks the commensurate room quality and services expected of a premium hotel. At Check in breakfast coupons, included in the room rate, were not provided, had to be requested three times and only arrived minutes before breakfast. (why couldn't these be issued at check in?) On the up side, the breakfast buffet and service is really good! Bell services were non existent. The room was small and furnishings were old and worn. No refrigerator or microwave. In General, the expected perks of a premium hotel are realized more in the value of a Garden Inn or Homewood Suites. The cost of "extras" in "premium" hotels can often exceed one night room rate and are usually included with a better room at a lower price at these "lesser" properties. This hotel is no exception. If location is key to your stay, this is a great place. If value is important, stay at a "lesser" hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room on a high floor, west facing.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for kindly sharing your candid review on the Hilton Pasadena. Please note that we are currently underway in reviewing our renovation plans for the hotel.

With regards to the breakfast coupons, please know that this is certainly not the standard and you are correct in that the breakfast coupons are typically placed in the room key card packet, please know that I will address this will the appropriate department head. I’m delighted to hear that you felt the breakfast service to be really good and I appreciate your sharing this note.

For future references, please kindly be advised that fridge and microwave are available upon request and availability. Thank you for your patronage and we look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back soon!

I had to turn off the A/c unit overnight it was just so pound - fortunately the room did not overheat
Otherwise this is a good typical hilton
No executive suite/level but they do include a breakfast coupon for the buffet which is nice
Convenient for downtown
Rooms are a little dated but they do have a plug for devices next to the bend including USB connectors - big plus - should be standard everywhere
Gym was reasonable but not great

This hotel was recommended to me by my boss. It has all the typical Hilton appeal - beautiful lobby, attentive staff, clean rooms, quiet atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was top notch. I woke up refreshed and ready to tackle a presentation for a major client. 'Nuff said.

I booked this hotel due an proximity and name. I am very particular about hotels that I book and Hilton's chain is usually consistent. Staff & services are above par but the hotel could use room upgrades.

Overall a nice hotel. The interior appears to be a little on the old side, but the room size was good and the bed was comfortable. The exercise room was adequate. Several cardio machines as well as free weights and space for stretching. I definitely recommend the buffet breakfast. I looked forward to that everyday...the cheese blintzes were a treat! Not a huge buffet like the big Vegas hotels, but still good choices.
