Where Culture and Sophistication Meet Neighborhood Charm and Delight

There’s a place where the bustle of Los Angeles quiets, while the cultural side of Southern California shines. It’s a city where neighborhood charm meets metropolitan sophistication, where the temperate Southern California climate is the ideal backdrop to savor some of the region’s most tantalizing cuisine.

That place is Pasadena, where a tantalizingly unique blend of history, architecture, art, science, shopping, entertainment and dining come together to form a thriving cultural hub of activity. The city’s storied past fuses with its dynamic present, and its streets are alive with eclectic galleries, shops, restaurants, museums, landmark theaters and nightlife nirvana.

Surrounded by a safe haven of friendly neighborhoods and family-driven attractions, Pasadena is nestled at the base of the spectacular San Gabriel Mountains, just 10 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles — but seemingly a world away. It’s a walkable, welcoming community bursting with opportunities for every preference, whether that’s strolling the boutiques and antiques of Old Pasadena; exploring world-renowned museums; dining among the stars; sipping your way through relaxed happy hours, wine bars and dance clubs; or simply taking in the great outdoors in and around town.

The city’s collection of conveniently located comfortable hotels runs the gamut from great little inns and charming bungalow-style properties to a mix of brand hotels and luxury five-star resort experiences like the landmark Langham Huntington Pasadena and the brand new dustD2 hotel constance pasadena.
