Enjoy some of the finest views of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Pasadena area from The Westin Pasadena, or step out to partake in the colorful spirit of downtown.
Shoppers and food-lovers alike will revel in the remarkable range of options surrounding us. Just a few minutes on foot from the hotel, the Paseo Colorado features premier dining and retail outlets plus a cinema. Less than a mile away, historic Old Pasadena’s charming storefronts house 200 shops plus a wide array of restaurants and night spots.
The Pasadena Convention Center and Pacific Asia Museum are within walking distance, while the California Technical Institute, the historic Tournament of Roses house, and the Norton Simon Museum are all less than two miles away. A ten-minute drive will take you to the resplendent Huntington Library, with its extensive art collections and botanical gardens.
Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the 36-hole, William P. Bell-designed Brookside Golf Club, just a five-minute drive away. The nine-hole Eaton Canyon course is 15 minutes away in the San Gabriel foothills, and Santa Anita Park—a famous thoroughbred racetrack—is equally close by. The Rose Bowl, a world-famous sports and entertainment venue boasting beautiful greenery and cliff sides, is only five minutes away by car.
Last but not least, the shimmering skyline of downtown Los Angeles is a mere 20-minutes away.
We recommend flying into Bob Hope Airport (BUR), just 20 minutes away, or Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), about 40 minutes away. Taxi, private car services, and SuperShuttle are available from both airports.
Many options are available for getting around Pasadena, including taxis at the Westin taxi stand and a complimentary hotel shuttle that takes guests to shopping destinations, restaurants, and cultural sites. Guests can also utilize the Metro commuter train, accessible on foot, that runs to downtown Los Angeles.
