Pasadena was a two-day stop on a two week work/fun trip to the Los Angeles area. We liked the ease of access to the northern part of LA and there were some nice things to do in the city itself (although we were disappointed when we realized the museums were closed the day we wanted to visit (not anyone's fault but check before). The hotel itself was just OK - clean "enough" but the feeling that taking care of the hotel is starting to become lax. I think this hotel could quickly become second rate. We like the discount we got at a nearby local restaurant (that was excellent). The neighborhood was also just OK with quite a few vagrants begging for money on the street. The free breakfast was lousy - nothing healthy to eat (all the cereal was sugar coated). The kind of place I would stay only if I had to.
