Overall and excellent experience. I wasn't sure what exactly to expect but understanding that the property was previously a Ritz Carlton, thought it would be still very nice. I was very happy with the experience and felt it was comparable to any other 5 star property I've stayed at.
Very friendly people, including housekeeping staff. I definitely will recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives. It is very well located in the heart of beautiful Pasadena, and only 30 minutes away from Universal Studios or Disney.
"Good location, comfortable, good value for money"
This hotel is located in fairly good and safe area close to lots of places to eat and colledge/uni. It is about 35-45 min walk to the main restautants and shops but you can also catch a bus which stops nearby.
The staff was very comfortable and accomodating, we had a good night sleep and overall this place was a good value for money. Breakfast had limited choice but hey its free.

Went to see ballgame at Dodgers Stadium. Was easy to get to from hotel. Hotel staff was
very nice when we check in. The young gal in the office was very helpful. She gave me
directions to the stadium and the next day when checking out asked how we enjoyed the
game and our stay. When people are friendly like that it is an enjoyment to travel.
Our family had a get a way to Pasadena to relax and hit Universal Studios. The Holiday Inn Express we a pleasant surprise. The staff were professional and friendly. The breakfast was about the best you can get for a free breakfast. The manager of the buffet took great pride in her kitchen. It was always stocked, clean and ready to feed the guest. The night manager was friendly and helper out with any of our request.
The only gripe was that the bed was small (double bed) and two adults were not comfortable. But that was my fault for not checking closely to the bed sizes.
