“Under construction but hard to notcie that it was”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The property is under renovation as of May 2014 but it was hard to notice. It was quiet. The staff and lobby area up to Marriott standards.

The pool and hot tub were great. The occasion was our youngest daughters graduation. Very safe location with a short walk to Old Town. This is where I am staying next trip back. Breakfast bar was great. Social hour amenities at end of day also good.

Great staff!

I stayed here on business in February of 2014. It's a decent hotel for an extended stay one. I was only here for 4 days, but the staff was very helpful. Housekeeping was on point. Valet staff was friendly and accommodating.

Location was good. Close to all major highways. Was convenient from LAX, and also to Downtown LA and Hollywood.

I would stay here on business again.

Location, location, location- If you want to walk to shopping, activities, restaurants, clubs etc etc. This is the place to be and as far as I know the only hotel in this area. I don't stay much in the hotel except to sleep, but I would stay here again.

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.

Viviana –

Thank you so much for sharing your experience at The Courtyard by Marriott Old Pasadena. Glad you got to see both the old and the new. We are just about completed with our guest room renovation so all will be new in the next several weeks.
Our location stays the same which has always been great with easy access to hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars.
Thank you again. We very much hope to see you back in the near future. Until then, safe travels.
