Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Pasadena Colorado Blvd.

Reviewed 2 January 2014

We came specifically for The Rose Parade and stayed 6 nights prior and during. The front desk staff were incredibly helpful, particularly Phoebe who was cheerful and patient with our many questions, since this was the first stop on our family trip to USA and we had much to learn. Incredibly convenient to the gold line light rail which opened up LA for us, with easy access this way to Old Pasadena or on to Union Station where we could change to the subway and get to Hollywood easily. The place was impeccably clean and the included breakfast made starting the day easy, though rooms were on the smaller side. Pool, spa and fitness rooms were a good bonus. Loved our stay.

Stayed: January 2014

I have stayed at this hotel before, and the location is easy to get to, right off of Colorado Boulevard. The lobby is light and airy, the breakfast is well maintained and plentiful; I found the staff to be very friendly, and there is plenty of parking, both covered and not covered.

My room was clean and quiet, the beds are EXTREMELY comfortable, and the even the pillows are labeled "soft" and "firm", so you can choose which suits you best.

The wifi is easy to connect, and response times are very fast.

My air conditioner was noisy at night. Actually, very noisy. I was glad for when it turned off, and I fell asleep before it kicked in again. The elevators are VERY slow to respond (four floors), but I would stay here again, based on my experience.

Great hotel! A breath of fresh air after refusing to stay at a motel down the street. This place smells really fresh and clean. The rooms are on the smaller side but well-equipped. Staff is extremely friendly, and and the breakfast is better than you'd expect for a continental breakfast. There is also covered parking.

My only complaint would be that you can hear people in the adjoining rooms sometimes. The walls and floors seem a bit thin. But if you turn up the A/C full blast and maybe the bathroom fan, you won't hear them.

Room Tip: Top floor would probably be best to reduce noise

I stayed here for a couple days with my family. This hotel is consistent with what I have come to expect from Holiday Inn Express. There was a small snafu with our A/C unit, but that was remedied immediately when we brought up the issue with front desk.
Another great stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in the Pasadena area.

I booked a stay here over winter break 2012. The booking process was extremely easy over the holiday inn website. When I checked in the gentleman at the counter was courteous, he offered us water and some other items(i think candy?) Its been awhile so I dont quite remember. The lobby was wide, quiet, and well kept. The biggest thing I judge a hotel by is by its cleanliness. The room did not disappoint. It smelled of nothing and everything was right where it was supposed to be. There were no stains anywhere. I liked that there was a mini fridge in the room. Although nothing was extravagant, yet it still modern and simple. Also, one of my group members forgot their toothbrush so we went to downstairs and they provided us with one promptly. I would totally stay here again.

Stayed: December 2012, travelled with friends
