Courtyard by Marriott Old Pasadena

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean, comfortable. Self-parking pay lot (not cheap, but it's Pasadena) provides easy direct access to each hotel floor. Jacuzzi nice, open until 10pm (enforced, but politely), pool towels provided. Pool not heated, but in good shape. Decent breakfast omelette buffet, but also plenty of walkable restaurants. Good location, about 3 minute walk to Colorado, and good neighborhood. Very close to Parsons, Cheesecake Factory, Old Town. 12min walk to Pasadena Convention Center. Staff was friendly. Empty fridge in room for your snacks/leftovers. Room not huge, but comfortable and in excellent condition. A/C unit in room, but windows can't be opened. Bathroom has a real door, which is good. Room was quiet, no noticeable noise from outside/neighbors.

Friendly staff. Great manager. Perfect location. This courtyard Marriott has improved customer service and accommodation.

This was a very average hotel, dingy even. Staff up front was nominally helpful, I have SPG gold and he was now knowledgeable on any benefits after the transfer to Marriott. Overall it was OK, except the fact that I had a big dent on the hood of my car while parked overnight in their garage. I don't know how it happened and I don't have proof, but I do know it happened in the garage overnight because I always check my car before and after parking at any hotels, restaurants, especially valet etc. I"m sure there's nothing they will do. Either way I would not be returning and would not recommend staying here.

Welcoming staff and excellent location. Will definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay. Marriot always delivers a nice room and comfortable bed.

The hotel is convenient to Old Pasadena and has easy self parking.

Good hotel and location. Only problem was an old and noisy AC machine in the room. Great staff though...

Quick check-in, very friendly staff from valets to front desk. Clean and comfortable room. Requested an additional blanket from front desk and was delivered within minutes. Will stay again when in the area. Walking distance to shops and restaurants.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. It is quite dated and some fixtures, elevator buttons, need fixing and maintenance. However, the room was spacious and fairly quiet even though I was by the elevator.

One night stay. Price was decent, hotel okay, but great area.

Great location to attend game at the Rose Bowl! Close restaurants, entertainment & transportation to the Rose Bowl.

I only stayed one night but it was a very pleasant stay. Great location, easy parking and modern clean rooms.

We were so happy with our choice. The room was so nice, the bed was comfy and the shower and accommodations were great. It's ina. Good location and the staff was as friendly as anything. If we ever come down this way again we will stay here for sure.

Only reaso I ranked it a 4/5 because wifi connection was terrible

excellent location for los angeles, clean hotel, staff courteous and professional. had snacks,light breakfast and coffee in lobby.very clean pool and hot tub!

Perfect location for my meetings in 6 different areas around LA. Lobby was great for getting work done or relaxing. Pool was nice and needed with the heat. If I have the same itinerary next time I go to LA. I will stay here again. Nice walk for coffee in the a.m. Pasadena is a nice town.

Nice place to stay, friendly staff, good feel place! Wolud stay here again.

We had a great stay! The room was clean and pristine. We had a great location and access to everything.
