Two night stay, first night, lively gathering watering hole in the lobby (not sure if it was a private affair, but guest were semi-formal attire). Unfortunately, I was woken at about 5 am by music coming from convention center, I thought it might be an all night rave that I slept through, apparently it was a youth bootcamps of some sort. By 7am there were teen boy yelling, stretching & doing sprints in the alley adjacent to the hotel and Convention center.
The hotel management had no knowledge, and are not responsible for the events at the center, so they were not able to give me any information at 6am when I called the front dest for information. The next night was fine.
So guests beware: FIND OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AT THE CONVENTION CENTER BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR ROOM. I was on the 2nd floor, in the wing numbered 201-235 (approximately),
Nice hotel, quiet, clean rooms, wonderful staff. Close to Porto's Bakery which has more baked goodies than any other store I've ever been to, and they serve breakfast too. Close to mall and other stores, parking in the back.
Pool, breakfast, coffee in room, iron, hair dryer - great anenities, but facilities need an improvement. Toilet flush handle fell off, shower very difficult to activate, a little dirty in the hallways and why did I have 2 TVs in my room and couldn't get the remote to work either of them? Great location to Old Town Pasadena, though. Staff very nice.
Pasadena sees life through rose-colored glasses each New Year. The city hosts the annual Tournament of Roses Parade, along with the Rose Bowl Game college football championship. Pasadena also tends its roots at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. Aside from its original Gutenberg Bible and Canterbury Tales, the institution is regarded for its 120 acres of gardens.
