I travel 25 - 30 weeks a year for business and on a whim, booked a couple of nights at The Bissel House on a recent visit to LA. I was delightfully surprised and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a superior Bed & Breakfast experience in Southern California. The Victorian era house sits in a lush garden with on-site parking and close proximity to the 110, 134, 210 and downtown Pasadena. For anyone who knows South Pasadena, this was one of the Orange Grove Ave. estates which is literally a mile or so from the Wrigley Mansion.
I stayed in the Victoria's Room which had a spacious shower, comfortable bed and lovely view overlooking the pool. While I was up and out too early for the home cooked breakfast the first morning (continental was plenty good), Juli, the owner, got up early the second morning and made a quiche with a fresh croissant for me which were both delightful and perfectly cooked. I will absolutely stay here again, and likely any time I come to LA from now on.
