We used to live in the Pasadena area. Once we moved, this hotel became our "go to" place when visiting friends or attending events nearby. First of all, it is perfectly located for exploring Old Town. You can walk just about anywhere. We have always had gracious service from the front desk staff, and the valets are the friendliest guys...

Easy access from self parking right onto your floor. Great for luggage and quick access to the car. Large hotel so a little impersonal. Fridge, microwave but no safe. Outdoor pool and hot tub but a little too cool for that. Room was clean and bed comfy. Pillow was the best I had in the past 3 weeks. There was...

Every Thanksgiving I got to Pasadena to visit my sister and her family. This hotel is clean ,comfy ,and in a good location. One block from Old Pasadena with good restaurants and shopping. Be sure to go to Bella's pizzeria; yummy and inexpensive, right down the block. The hotel rooms were clean and the bed was cozy. Breakfast affordable and...

Excellent layout for the one-bedroom suite that we stayed at. Generous countertop space by the kitchenette w/ microwave and mini fridge. The living area has more than enough space for the pullout queen-size bed. The bedroom also had a small couch and a long work desk and a swiveling flat screen TV opposite of said couch. I still wish rooms...

If you've stayed at Marriott Courtyards before, the interior of this one will not be anything dramatically different. The modern renovations that have been done provide many nice accomodations in the guest rooms, including new decor, a couch in the room, work area with TV, complimentary wifi, and plenty of charging outlets including USB power ports at bedside. Location is...

Newly remodeled with nice décor. Loved the sofa in the room with a single King bed. We walked to restaurants and window shopping in Old Town Pasadena and it was a very short drive to the Hunington library and Gamble House. We left our hanging clothes in the closet. They had them safe and sound and were very accommodating in...

Average hotel with styleless rooms. Ok hotel if it's the location you wish to be but nothing special at all. Facilities are very limited and the morning breakfast buffet stampede is best avoided! Stay elsewhere if you can otherwise good luck!

I stayed here for two nights to see the USC/UCLA football game. I checked-out earlier today. I travel frequently and have stayed at high-end and budget hotels. This hotel is just excellent for the money. The rooms are new and modern. My room had a small fridge, microwave, comfortable couch and HDTV. I was checked-in by the staff upon arrival...

I had a wedding last weekend and reserved a block of rooms at this hotel for my family and guests. I am utterly embarrassed by how horribly they were treated. In fact, I am disgusted by this hotel and its staff. From the reports I received (from most everyone who stayed at the hotel), there were handicapped people who had...

Kevin, I was disappointed to learn that your special event was less than perfect from a hotel standpoint. I do sincerely apologize. Would love to take the conversation off line to learn more details on how we fell short and could have done better. Please feel free to contact me directly during normal business hours. Many thanks.

The room was clean and a good size. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Lots of places to explore nearby. The TVs are placed awkwardly. Well, maybe the idea is not to watch TV in bed which is how we like it. Bu the nice, fluffy pillows made up for it.
