Check it Out! “Courtyard by Marriott Los Angeles Pasadena/Old Town” Explicit Review

I chose “Courtyard Los Angeles Pasadena / Old Town,” because it is close to Dodger Stadium and Downtown Los Angeles. This time I stayed in this area to accompany my husband on his business trip, and this hotel is close to the Dodger Stadium where I get to go back and forth due to my husband's work relationship, and without being involved in the traffic jam in Los Angeles. I also heard that it is a stylish city, so I liked the fact that it was close to downtown, which is convenient for strolling around the city. I was looking forward to seeing the downtown area during the weekend a well.

Summary

I had a nice stay at this hotel. It was a nice hotel with the image of a full Marriott service, unlike the Marriott Courtyard. Also, the location was good and the city was small, so it was great to walk around. I enjoyed the busy city after having finished dinner at a restaurant, returning to the room, taking a break, and walking around the bar with live music and shops. I was staying during the summer, but there are many parks around, so I thought it would be fun to go around the city on hikes and biking in the spring and fall time. It is a good hotel to stay at to enjoy the atmosphere of an old town.
