Beautiful hotel close to Pasadena Convention Ctr

Pros: Excellent customer service, easy check in (no line), ample self-parking at a decent rate, very clean, modern looking, comfortable room.
Cons: Water pressure in the shower could be improved.
This is a wonderful property within walking distance of the Pasadena Convention Center (they offer a shuttle as well - limited radius but a nice option). Wonderful room with comfortable bed...love the bed! Easy check in and check out, ample self-parking in the garage for only $10. Will definitely try to stay here again for a repeat trip to Pasadena.

Everything as advertised

Did not know hotel was under renovation. The was some noice in the morning but we were checking out early so it was not a problem. We asked for 2 beds and were provided, but room was small and difficult to get to closets and to use coffee pot. Experience would be improved if pool was indoor so it can be used in cool season; free breakfast; free parking.

Nice treat!

Pros: Modern, smoothly run with no service glitches. We thought there must be high standards by the management. You can just tell it's well run.
Cons: Breakfast menu was really expensive for what it was.
Location: Close to Cal tech & Occidental College. Short walk to shops & dining at night.
This hotel was unexpectedly nicer than I thought. The decor was nice, the pool and restaurants clean & up-to-date. The room was a little small, but nice & new, with new feeling linens. The hotel was quiet at night despite being near "old" downtown. Fun to walk to restaurants at night. The valet parking is a little $$, garage is an easy walk 1 block away, with a discount for hotel guests.

Really nice hotel.

Pros: Nice, big rooms. Clean all around. Excellent breakfast buffet.
Cons: Customer Service.
I usually visit LA every year. This year, I decided to stay around Pasadena. While the hotel is excellent, the front desk staff was pretty disappointing. When I got back home, I called the front desk manager to discuss unprofessional behavior from one of the front desk clerks. I was instructed to email my complain so they could have it in writing and never heard from them again. This hotel is really nice, but don't expect good service from the front desk people.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that although you found the hotel accommodations excellent, the front desk was not helpful. Our brand promise is to make sure that every customer feel welcomed and cared for during their stay. Our front desk is supposed to be the hub that handles the needs of our guests and I feel that your experience is an anomaly because the normal feedback is very positive. I hope that we will have another opportunity to welcome you and give you a 5 star experience.

Great Location!

The hotel and staff were friendly and professional. The room was comfortable.  The only draw back was you could hear everything going on in the hallway.  Nevertheless, it quited down, and I was able to get a good nights sleep.  It was fun to stay near downtown old Pasadena.

Nice place to stay.

Pros: Quiet
The room looked good and the beds were above average. There was a little neglect with the cleaning, but just a little. We enjoyed our night there.

Awful housekeeping

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast
The basics are never replenished (coffee, sugar, creamer, shampoo, soap). Towels that are hung to dry are taken and not replaced. When the do not disturb sign was on the door, the room was entered and a cot (which was not ordered) was left in the room. When the do not disturb sign was NOT on the door, the room was not cleaned. NOT a 4 star hotel. If the room was not paid for in advance, we would have left and found another hotel to stay at.
