I wasn't sure what to expect based on previous reviews here but I had a very nice one night stay. The valet quickly took my car when I arrived. Parking w/ in-and-out privileges is $13/night. You can self park next door for $8, but no in-and-out. Checkin was friendly and quick. The lobby is that of an upscale hotel, with sundry store, business center, restaurant, etc. I think you have to pay for the business center but they had separate computers to print out boarding passes for free. The guest room itself is a little small, but was fine for what I needed. There is an inroom safe and coffee maker but no minibar or fridge in the room. I thought the room was clean and pretty modern with a good desk and comfortable office chair for working. The room was in the front of the hotel facing the street but the windows were thick enough to keep the noise out. Hi speed internet is $11/night.
There is an outdoor pool and a well equipped modern gym with cardio, weights, etc. I had room service for dinner, which came in 25 minutes (they said it would be 45 minutes when I ordered probably to manage expectations). Food was expensive, as you might expect from room service, and tasted reasonably good though not over the top delicious. The next day I asked for late checkout and was given until 3 pm with no hesitation.
The hotel is located near Old Pasadena, but it's not right outside the door--probably a 10 minute walk. There isn't much directly outside the hotel--a gas station and I think the local courthouse. The only other hotel in the area seems to be the Courtyard Marriott, which IS right next to Old Pasadena. But I stopped by there and while it seemed to be a nice hotel it is not in the same class as Westin. I would stay here again when in the area.
