Courtyard by Marriott

Feb 1, 2011

518440 70 b 300x208 Courtyard by Marriott Pasadena Old Town marriott hotel  photoThis hotel is ugly on the outside but handsome within, especially the modern-Craftsman-furnished lobby and bar. The location is great—it’s on the edge of Old Town across Fair Oaks from Parsons, and you can even walk to the Rose Bowl. It’s not cheap—we’d rather spend a few bucks more to stay a couple blocks east at the nicer Westin—but if you want to be where the action is, the Marriott is a good choice. Request rooms on the north-facing side of the property if you want a mountain view or facing the pool courtyard if you want quiet.
