3 star hotel
Area: Downtown Pasadena
0.52 mi from Norton Simon Museum
Best Rooms: Odd-numbered rooms ending in *01 - *25 (e.g. 503, 625) are the quietest, but rooms on the other side of the hotel offer the best views of the city.
Best Rooms: The Balcony rooms are a nice way to enjoy the year-round mild climate, and to take in views of the Plaza Fuentes Courtyard. Some of the suites on floor 10 have wraparound balconies, which makes both indoor and outdoor spaces equally enticing to be in.
Best Rooms: Rooms offer views of the mountains or the city.
Best Rooms: Most views are obstructed by surrounding buildings; however, rooms facing the pool may offer a better view.
