For Pasadena, this price was fair and we were staying for 4 days. On arrival, we were warmly greeted and given a decent room facing away from the front. It was quiet, but the window didn't open and
it felt a little claustrophobic. I went down to ask if they had any rooms where the window opened and we were given a room across the hall with a balcony. Same size as the last room (a little small) but the sliding door kept thing open and breezy.
The breakfast was good. I've had better, but I've also had worse. I really liked the dining area which was open and big enough for lots of people. They were a little slow getting refreshed hot food out but that might be due to long, outdoor walk from the kitchen to the lobby/dining area. Build a hallway for the poor servers!
Front desk was very nice, always greeting me when I came back in without being too cheery. I like pleasant, not fake.
Overall, it was a good stay. Definitely overpriced for what you get, but that seemed typical of the Pasadena hotel market. So in context, this was an above average hotel with friendly and personable staff. [Less]
