I have stayed at this hotel four times in the past four years. In 2014 and 2015, they were remodeling it. In 2016, they finished the remodeling, and the place looks gorgeous. It's clean, modern, stylish, and attractive. Breakfast buffet is quite good, and well-maintained throughout the entire time that it is available. There is an outdoor pool that is clean and well-maintained also.
The area in which the hotel operates is safe, and has a number of amenities that are quite appealing. During my last stay (from 25-27 July 2017), I used the Metro Station at Sierra Madre Villa Avenue to go to the Dodger game evening of 26 July. The Metro Station was close enough to walk to it. I strongly recommend using the Metro if you want to take in a Dodger game. Definitely the way to go to beat all of the traffic.
There are a number restaurants, stores, shopping centers in the area within a short walk or a short drive. Old Pasadena is available via walking or driving. A dramatic view of the mountains is at the front of the hotel.
The room itself was clean and comfortable, no offensive odors or smells.
I strongly recommend using this hotel during your next visit to the Los Angeles/Pasadena area.More
