Rated 4 out of 5 by Davidson52 Staff excellent
We had a two day stay over the 4th of July and while there were elevator problems, the staff went out of their way to provide all their services in the nicest way! Friendly. They also had a Caltech shuttle which we needed. Very accommodating for gluten free needs in hotel restaurant, too (a big plus!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tri99 Good room bad day for hotel.
My guest and I really enjoyed the quality of the bed and quality of sleep. I also took my dog and she enjoyed her comfy bed and large water bowl. We stayed for one evening on the night of the 4th of July and checked out the following day. Unfortunately, the morning we checked out only 1 elevator (out of 3) worked and it took a very, very long time to catch an elevator down. I made 1 trip to take the bags to the car then decided to take stairs up 6 floors to pick up my dog because a crowd had formed by the 1 working elevator. It took 30-45 minutes to finally check-out. Additionally, we had breakfast earlier that day at the hotel restaurant and unfortunately experienced poor service. The waiter we had was in too much of a rush and didn't pay attention; we had to return our runny eggs and he brought us back the same dish minus some staple items that were on the original dish. We had to keep reminding him of our requests which made for a poor experience. Great food --terrible service. I chose Westin because I could take my dog and because a friend highly recommended it. While my experience wasn't perfect I'm willing to give it another chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizza This hotel staff are very friendly
Staff made you feel like you were home again. From doorman to house keeper, all so friendly like your relative instead these cold professional staff. Although elevator were down due to hot whether, front desk staff walked you to service elevator. I have so many classmates and friends in LA area, but I always stay in Pasadena Winston.

This is the third year in a row we have stayed with our wheaten terrier. We like staying at Westin Pasadena since we are not assigned "dog rooms" compared to other hotels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clare64 This hotel was fantastic!
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The pool was lovely and very relaxing. We enjoyed a delicious and filling breakfast, included in the hotel cost. Located near the old town Pasadena, the location was perfect for walking to eateries and shopping. We will definitely make this hotel a destination in our future Southern California trips.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Holysheets CHECK-IN & CHECK OUT
Although I called over a day prior to check-In, requesting a low floor room be blocked out for my stay, and although confirmed, upon check-in the 3rd floor room had been changed to the 12th floor.
At check-out, although there were two front desk agents, neither were there to take care of a guest. One was on the phone and the other ignored me and was working with a communications company vendor. She became upset when i asked if I could give her my room keys and get a copy of my bill.
Compounding these two service breakdowns, I left a voicemail message about the disappointing sub-standard experience immediately upon departure, it has been over two days and I have not received any acknowledgement of my call or experience.
The valets are entirely self centered, block the entrance and could care less about the guest experience.
The bathroom flooded every time we took a shower.
