We have stayed in this hotel multiple times and always enjoyed it. This property is in a remodel process - we stayed in one of the updated rooms on the 5th floor facing the street in front. Totally comfortable king-size bed, large couch, big-screen TV, and nice-size bath all combine for a nice effect. There is a small breakfast and coffee bar in the lobby, with beer and wine available in the afternoons. The big advantage here is the location - within easy walking distance to everything in old town Pasadena - restaurants, shopping, movies and weekend events. Of course, with the upgraded rooms come upgraded prices - we paid $350 for a Sat night, booked a week in advance, including everything - parking, taxes, etc. Overall a positive experience, but it isn't getting any cheaper.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience at the Courtyard by Marriott Old Pasadena. So glad you were able to stay in a remodeled room. We are about a week or two from completing everything with the renovation. We just finished putting in a brand new fire pit this week along with all new pool furniture.

The location is hard to beat and it certainly sounds like you enjoyed all of the things to do in the local area.

Thanks again for staying with us and we very much look forward to having you back.

Safe travels to you.

Reasonable Hotels nearer to USC sold out due to graduation, but this change to Pasadena worked out great. Also the rates were lower than options I had near USC. Had newly renovated room- no complaints other than shower a bit cool, but I experience such minor issues in many hotels. Parking very reasonable at $15 and great to be located on the level of my room. free-Wifi in room
and nice lobby area. Small takeout area for morning snacks, refrig and microwave in room. All staff were very nice from parking staff, front desk checkin, lobby market, and room service.

Did not have time to see pool or fitness room. Very pleasant area around the hotel. Extremely close to all the freeways I needed. This would be a great place to stay when I visit USC next time.

This is a great hotel right in the middle of Pasadena/Old Town. The staff was very friendly and the location is such that it's easy to walk to anything in the vicinity. Many of the rooms have recently been renovated.

I have been in this hotel twice, once about 3 years ago (it was nice, always clean and very well located in pasadena, but the rooms looked a bit oldish).. i have just come back from a business trip there two weeks ago and they remodeled all the rooms, the look amazing, very modern and comfortable, I like that they include a mini fridge and microwave in all rooms. In another note I think they should remodel the bathrooms and showers but they are okay. The cleaning staff is super friendly and always wanting you to feel at home. Still the same location which is very well centered and close (one block away)from the Colorado St. which is full of shopping stores and bars.

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the elevator, they have very long hallways.

I stayed here for 3 weeks on business. The hotel is a clean and comfortable with up to date rooms in a good location.

The gym was also decent.

This is one of the better Courtyards I have stayed at.
The hotel also had a decent breakfast service.

Would stay here again.

I was in Pasadena to give a lecture and found my stay at this Courtyard to be very comfortable and enjoyable. The room I stayed in was wonderfully decorated and the best was comfortable. Electrical outlets were in convenient spots, and the wifi (at least for my short stay) was free.

The building's layout is such that it is sort of confusing to know where you are, but the signage is good enough to get you where you want to go. They are remodeling, and a lot of their old furniture, etc., is being stored in the parking garage taking up spaces. Still, I didn't have too much trouble finding open spots, even if they were something a bit further from the entrance than I would have liked.

I only ate at the downstairs restaurant once, but the service was quick and it all seemed quite posh, even if the prices were rather reasonable.

My Daughter and I stayed at the Marriott from April 16 to 22. When We arrived, We were told there was construction near our room on the 4th floor. We were tired and not at all willing to have our vacation disrupted. The check in agent was very understanding and gave us a room in a quiet area of the hotel.
During our stay we never heard any construction noise from our room. Our stay was wonderful. The location is perfect near tons on restaurants and shops. The pool area is not huge but not crowded and offers lots of shady umbrellas and a gazebo with table and chairs.
We love the starbucks in the lobby for late night snacks or breakfast.
