I booked this hotel for Memorial Day weekend using my SPG rewards and only spent $45/night. Being that it was a holiday weekend and we wanted to be in this vicinity, it was a great bargain.
We flew into Santa Ana (John Wayne Airport) and it took us less than an hour to reach this property. It was easy to find on our GPS and there didn't seem to be too much traffic on Saturday.
I went in to check-in and was quickly informed that the Club Lounge was for Platinum guests only. I had never heard of this and apparently CL's are at the hotel's discretion?! That's pretty sad. Basically, being a Gold Member meant jacksquat then.
But I digress.
I was also informed that nightly parking would cost us $13/night... which is extremely high since if you notice, most parking lots in downtown LA cost only $5! I guess this is also because the Sheraton shares its lot and the Pasadena Convention Center is very close by.
There was a mini fridge in our room and a complimentary bottle of water. Flat panel HDTV and all the other amenities. Typical Sheraton room.
The Sheraton is very close to Old Town Pasadena, and the Paseo Colorado (a mall) is about a 5 minute walk away. This part of Pasadena is very quiet and is amidst a residential area even though there is a Hilton and Westin a block away.
There is a 24 hour CVS that is maybe a 5 minutes drive away and a Ralph's (supermarket) very close by.
All in all a pleasant stay, except for the Club Lounge revelation. We would definitely come back here again if we were spending cash & points.
