I reserved a 2 BR suite here for the price of a regular room at the higher priced chains. The room was very nice and included microwave and small fridge. However, there was only 1 HVAC unit so if you want to close the door on that BR then there is no HVAC in the other BR. Towels are a little small but fluffy. Ask for a room away from the road if you are a light sleeper. Good sound insulation between rooms and between floors. There are a lot of rooms that are on the street. Why? Because they get $400 a night for them during the Rose Bowl parade (2 night minimum)! Good neighborhood directly across the street from the Pasadena College campus. Very helpful staff. The continental breakfast had limited selections; 2 kinds of sweetened cereal, oatmeal you make yourself, a few breads and muffens, pre-packaged pasteries, and a waffle maker. I'd stay here again.
