Today has been a very slow one for me as two late nights in a row plus walking about 10km a day has taken its toll and I have been very tired all day. However there is so much to see and we just keep going. The boys had a great night out at Hooters Casino, the name says it all, and the old men,were home around 3ish which wasn't bad. We visited a M …

Traffic was moving so fast and we were moving like 60-65 miles per hour and I'm freaking out. I think Dave was even a little freaked out.

We get our bearing and head straight or the beach, 200 yards and a few steps see us on golden sand heading for the Pacific Ocean. After a paddle for 10 minutes we head for the pier. A walk along this and we purchase our first momentous, $10 for a 6x6 painting of the view. We also eat our evening meal here, Julie really fancied ...

We actually signed up for 2 ‘back to back’ Holland America cruises – a 24 day one from Vancouver to Sydney and then a 14 day cruise from Sydney over to New Zealand! We selected a spacious veranda cabin, as this will be our home for 24 days until we reach Sydney. We also brought lots of books with us – to occupy our time in between taking shore excursions. After Long Beach – other stops will be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Los Angeles Old Pasadena
Close to Old town Pasadena
We stayed at this hotel over the weekend for a wedding. The hotel is convenient just off highway 135 and close to Old Pasadena and Resturants. It may be noisy if you had a room facing the street. Free High speed internet access. All you can eat breakfast was good for $12. Hotel was clean and the cleaning staff were very courteous. Though they charge $10 parking a day it was convenient in the sense that you can walk to the room from the adjacent garage. Overall rating 4 out of 5.
Excellent hotel, excellent location, great service
I enjoyed my stay at the Courtyard very much. The bedding was luxurious with 5 pillows on each bed. A desk with DSL hookup was important to me. Hair dryer, HBO. Valet parking and very close to all the great restaurants nad shopping. Within walking distance of many museums and the mall. Easy access off highway 134.
I was especially satisfied with the staff who were friendly, fun and always able to serve my needs. Including valet staff. There is a pool, stuffed chair and ottoman, large lobby with bar and nice restaurant in morning. Newspaper delivered outside door every morning.
Our fee was only $129 a night for a conference. Everything was very nice.
I stay at the Courtyard Old Pasadena about six times per year. I think that the other opinions are pretty accurate, but let me add a few thoughts:
Standard Bearer Courtyard
More services than most Courtyard hotels. There is valet and bellhop service. Nice lobby and courtyard pool. Self park garage that allows direct access to room floor from same floor in garage--this is very convenient. Staff helpful and will print on-line boarding pass for your next flight. Location within walking distance of metro, restuarants, shops, etc. Received LA times on Sunday (USA Today other days).
Average Corporate Hotel in Good Location
Stayed there for a couple of days while attending a wedding -
The good: A good location, pleasant staff, clean rooms
The bad: Thin walls so you can hear the neighbors, pretty weak shower pressure, key cards didn't always work. Also parking while checking in can be pretty difficult because of poor design that doesn't leave enough room.
I would probably look somewhere else next time, but $110 + 10 parking is about what I would expect to pay, and is not unreasonable for the area.
We stayed at the Old Pasadena Courtyard Marriott when we dropped off our daughter at college. The lobby was a good place to entertain friends for a drink. Accommodations were clean and typical, no frills -- exercise room was small but adequate for this type of hotel. The best part of this experience was the location. A few blocks away, there are lots of restaurants and shops. When we stayed in late August, the place was alive and hopping. Judging from the parking situation, we were glad to be within walking distance. Hotel is pricey but we were able to use the university discount rate.
I recently spent 4 nights at the Courtyard by Marriott in Pasadena. While the hotel itself is OK, the price that I paid ($179 per night) is, from my experience, a bad value. I shopped around before selecting the hotel, and now wish that I had been willing to pay $10 more per night for the Westin or even $70 per night more for the MUCH nicer Ritz-Carlton in Pasadena.
My company gets a special rate, so I used to stay there often - until consistent problems started happening. First, the walls are paper-thin. A late night TV session in the next room will require earplugs to get to sleep. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful, but often clueless. I got a room with a king bed on one occasion, and it was tiny, (3 feet on each side of the bed) with an incredibly loud air conditioner - earplugs again. The rooms have feather pillows - I'm allergic - and when I requested another type, none were available. One night, the fire alarm went off, and I grabbed my clothes and valuables and evacuated to the parking garage. For two hours we shivered in the garage, with no information from the staff. Finally we were finally allowed to return, still with no absolutely no information or apologies. Many guests just got in their cars and left. The valet parking can be very snotty if you choose to use self parking - even asking you to move your car while you are checking in. On the positive side, the rooms are clean, well-furnished and the breakfast downstairs is fine.
Great location, good hotel
The hotel room was typical inexpensive corporate-style, nice and clean and boring. The lobby is actually pretty nice. The location is awesome.
Just a couple blocks from all the shopping and dining. I paid $200, which I thought was pretty expensive for a Courtyard hotel, but I thought it was well worth it for the great location.
