“Great location walking distance to Old Town Pasadena”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We took a foodie trip down to LA and this location served as a great base and launching point. Most places we went to in LA was a 30 minute drive. Additionally, the hotel is 1.5 blocks from all the action of downtown Pasadena full of its own restaurants and shops. Parking at the hotel is $15/nt for self park, $17/nt for valet.

Pros:
- Staff are very courteous
- Location

Cons:
- Decor is a little outdated
- Rooms are mostly clean, but there was some mold building up on the ceiling corners above the bathtub.
- TVs are on the small side (26") compared to other Courtyard Marriott's we've stayed at in the past.

Overall, it was a good hotel and good value. We would consider staying here again in the future.

Stayed here for 1 night at the end of a trip around LA. It was the nicest hotel and part of LA that I visited. Efficient desk staff, who kindly allowed me to check-in early. Well-appointed and clean room with fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The multi-storey car park adjoins the hotel and allows you to self-park on the same floor as your room. Nice pool area - a shame I didn't have a chance to use it during my short stay. Pasdena has a wide choice of places to eat & drink. As with other Courtyard properties, there is free WiFi and computer terminals in the reception area.

Nice people here. Rooms are a little old and small, but you can't beat the location. My first day, I was blow drying my hair and the whole mounting came off of the wall. I called the front desk and when I returned, there was a brand new blow dryer installed. How nice. Didn't eat the food here, as I am not a high enough rewards member to get the free meal. Great Nepalese restaurant around the corner.

I was here for two weeks in February of 2013 with my mom and my brother. We came all the way from Sweden and got to the hotel in the morning. My brother and I started talking to the staff and spent most of the 2 next weeks doing that.
That night we were starving from our jet lag, but all we had to do if we were hungry was go down to the market in the hotel and get a fruit salad at 5 in the morning. Also the bistro breakfast is incredible. I recommend the french toast, because it's a perfect blend of unhealthy and delicious.
And my family rented a car from budget, that the hotel helped us with, that was incredibly smooth. I believe that one could get manicures on tuesday evenings. The manicures were very cheap, and really pretty.
We were there when they had the Oscar gala, and let me tell you, this Courtyard by Marriott is very good at the Oscars. They gave me and my brother popcorn from their popcorn machine and we bet on winners.
Do not get me started on the pool. Dear god that body of water is remarkable.
I could easily go on for quite a while but I won't. Anyways, if you have a thirteen-year old girl like me, TAKE HER HERE.

Our family stayed for a week and loved it. The location is GREAT , within walking distance of shopping and restaurants ( Both Chains and local flavor ). We had excellent service from the minute we walked in until the minute we left. The staff went out of their way to provide excellent service !! I never walked in or out the front door without hearing a genuine how are you doing today , welcome back or near the end of the week "welcome home ". The staff were all very knowledgeable about the area and always willing to answer questions. The room was clean and well appointed. The pool was always clean with pool towels and comfortable chairs. Loved the stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was located in the front of the hotel. We had a very nice view . All floors open to the par...

I love this hotel - not only are you near the heart of Old Town Pasadena with all the fun shops and restaurants - but you are a couple of blocks away from the City Hall (a beautiful old Spanish style building that really sets the tone of the city).
Great staff from the desk folks to the Michael - the concierge. He's quick to print out a map for you or just "be really nice" to start your day off right.
The hotel is clean and has a nice coffee/snack place to grab something quick to eat. The patio has a several nice places to sit and enjoy the "pretty" of California - and nice sunshine. I also like that valet parking is not over the top expensive ($17). Only two dollars more than self-park ($15). We recently held a conference there - and the staff just did everything possible to accommodate my guests. Thanks so much for a great stay!
