The hotel is very large for a 5 star (a former Ritz) but tries hard to provide that level of service. The location in the best neighborhood in Pasadena is both beautiful and quiet. Take a walk and admire the 1900 era mansions. The room was comfortable and quiet with excellent housekeeping. Because of the size of the hotel it takes a bit of an army to check people in and out and get the cars parked and ready. It is ideal for weddings or corporate events with the number of reception rooms and the gardens. Also good for children with a nice pool area and for tennis players.
Pros: Huge and beautiful property with quiet rooms, good service and exceptional location. Close to old Pasadena and downtown Pasadena with shuttle service to both.
Cons: Dated bathroom with Walmart quality toilette. Chairs should have been reupholstered 20 years ago. Expect to pay $25 per night for valet parking which cannot easily be avoided. Wifi worked but at check-out they tried to charge me for free wifi until I objected. Make sure you have GPS to find it. The breakfast area was a bit over-run in the morning.
Overall: Would recommend but not a 5 star without some further upgrades and probably just too big, too family oriented and too commercial event driven to offer 5 start service and ambiance. Still a do again.
