I spent a night at the Westin Pasadena after several nights at a nearby hotel (also for business). On the plus side: the windows in my 9th Starwood Preferred Guest floor room opened so I was able to enjoy the crisp cool air (together with a lovely view of the mtns). The room had a very comfortable window seat which I used a lot to sit and enjoy the view while I worked. Room service was prompt and delicious. The staff could not have been friendlier. And the location is very good, close to shops, old Pasadena, etc. I also thought the pool area was very inviting as well as the grounds (in contrast to my other hotel (the Hilton) which had much less ambiance. On the negative side: strangely, the room was a bit worn, including a sink with a large crack and a floorboard with a six-inch crack. The baseboards were also marked up. When I checked into my room, I found a rag from the cleaning crew under a chair and there were glasses in the hallway on the floor. In the end, I don't really care because I liked the location, staff and views, but it made me wonder why the hotel did not spend a little more time to take care of its facilities. Also, keep in mind that if you keep your window open, you will definitely hear traffic if you are on the street side. (Perhaps ask for a room facing the other way). Internet charge is $11.95 per day; I don't know why they don't offer it for free for their frequent travelers like some other brands. Still, I love the Westin brand and found the staff's engaging, helpful ways obviated the somewhat worn furnishings.
