Priceline not honored
we booked with priceline were given a room with two queen beds all was confirmed.when we arrived at the hotel they claimed all that was available was a room with a king bed . we showed our reservation from priceline they did not care . they said the hotel was full and we had paid less so we had to take the king. we were there for a exam that was being held at the convention center so we had no choice. we won't go back.
June 13 04....Just returned from a stay in (beautiful, tree-shaded) Pasadena,Ca...the Sheraton is in a great location/residential/commercial/connected to Convention Center.....great pool area, though I thought it strange that the restaurant faces the pool & people can sit outside & watch the people sun-bathe/splash around in the pool...coffee-maker in room/hairdryer...definetly needs more vanity space, but seems like it's an "older" hotel re-done...low rise & has a "comfortable" feel...within walking to Old Town Pasadena...great mountain views....a pleasant experience for the weary traveller. Definetly would stay again!
Mediocre at Best
I thought the staff was poorly trained and unprofessional. Didn't really enjoy my stay.
Friendly Staff. Really nice property. Banquet Rooms are Beautiful. Especially Loved the Sales & Catering Staff
Best in Southern California
The absolute best! Great value. The staff is excellent- they really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable.
Great location and staff
We got our room through Priceline. We only paid $75 for the room.
The hotel is in a great neighborhood and location. Close to Old Town Pasadena and South Lake shopping district. The entrance and the lobby were very well kept.
The only bad thing about this hotel is that the parking area needs a lot of work. A little pressure washing would make a huge difference.
Avoid at All Costs
This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I booked a room at the Sheraton Pasadena from July 28-30, 2003. The room I got was disgusting and sickening. Apparently, the management at the hotel doesn't care about cleanliness. I found a pubic hair in my nightstand drawer, a hair in my bed, and a hair in my wash cloth. There were food wrappers underneath my bed. Many of the sheets had black streaks on them and the desk drawer had miscellaneous items left over from a previous guest.
Also, the ice machines didn't work most of the time. And to make things worse, the vending machine area was often overflowing with trash and used trays from people who had ordered room service.I complained to one of the managers, but he refused to give me any sort of discount or break on the price of the hotel room. This is despite the fact that there is a large sign behind the front-desk which states the Sheraton guarantee in large letters. Supposedly, if you are not 100% satisfied, Sheraton will give you a discount, rewards, or even cash back. However, the manager would not give me any of these. He made up some BS about how I was part of a group transaction. Although I was staying at the hotel to take the California Bar Exam, I did not reserve a room as part of a group. However, the manager said there was nothing he could do for me even though the room was filthy.The next day I talked to a manager who finally agreed to do something for me. He agreed that the first manager I spoke to was wrong about the group transaction exception.
However, I first had to convince him that the room was really that filthy. He spoke to me in a condescending manner and tried to make it sound impossible that their hotel could ever be that dirty. Again, this manager would not give me a discount or a price break. However, he finally agreed to waive the parking charge. Do you believe that the hotel charges $7.00 a day for parking in a public garage!? They don't even have their own parking. Anyways, I figured that this was better than nothing and left thinking that I had at least gotten some compensation for my miserable stay. Afterwards, I checked out and hoped I would never have to deal with them again.Now, it's September 27th.
I'm looking at my credit card bill and I found that I was charged $21.00 by the Sheraton Pasadena on August 27th, a full month after I stayed there! They are now charging me again for the parking that they had already agreed to waive! This really irks me. I had to complain repeatedly just to get a $21.00 concession and now they try to sneak it back in by charging me a month later. I've never been treated so poorly by any hotel in my life. If you think I have a grudge against this hotel, then by all means you are right. Please, I hope no one decides to stay there after readings.
GREAT hotel. Great location. Great price @ $109/ night when I was there. I love Old Pasadena and it is walking distance away. The hotel quality is great. Room was clean, front desk was excellent! Everyone was very nice and helpful. I am definitely going back.
I have stayed at this place twice. Location is good for me and it is in a nice part of Pasadena and close to everything for me. The rooms are OK and the exercise equipment is top line stuff. Parking is undergound and $7 per day I was there. I will return again for a third stay during the hoildays.

... their main, and superior, competition were standing outside the booth. We quickly said "no thanks" and walked away, laughing at the absurd amounts of irony. We kept checking back throughout the next days, and Ryan eventually caught him walking away from the Glidecam booth to another area of the convention and was able to say hello. After the convention, we headed to Circus Circus to check into our room. It was a madhouse trying to find where to park to just go ...
... go to church, but out of obligation come for the Easter service (I hope God worked in them). After church we went over to Nick's apartment to have Easter lunch/dinner with Mel, Nick, and Mel's brother. All 10 of us gathered around a table and had a fantastic Easter meal (thanks again guys for having us over!) We then played games for the rest of the afternoon and early evening. Left for Dead 2 (a zombie survival video game), Settler's of Catan (the ...
... can't swim. We'd just have to barricade the entrance to the pier. We ate dinner inland at a place called Bravo where I had a good chicken parmesan sandwich, which was followed by a walk down to the water to watch the sunset. Now i've seen a lot of sunsets cause I live on the Third Coast, aka West Michigan, but I enjoy them every time and this one was just as good.
On the way back Ryan, Max and I got stuck in traffic for a while, hindering out plans to get back to PCC as ...
... the sidewalk, excited when seeing a star of a celebrity we actually knew. We walked as close as you could to the red carpet and over to the Chinese Theater where there are a bunch of celebrity hand and shoe prints in cement. Side note: Robert De Niro has small shoes. We then had an early dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe under the Dolby Theater. From there we made our way to the Egyptian Theater again, this time to see the Oscar Nominated Live Action Short ...
The big day that I had been waiting for had finally arrived. Yuppers folks, I was finally going to the Rose Bowl Parade. I awoke and got up from my electric blanket heated bed and my feet hit the floor...Yikes Yolanda, it was freezing. I'm talking mid 30's inside ol Charlie....Not to worry, I slipped on my slippers, turned on the furnace and the electric heater and jumped back in bed...Oh yea, did I say it was 4:30 AM ?? I am truly ...
