    Mark, Great tips. Heading out in August 2007 for a function at the Rose bowl so I am starting my research now. So Burbank is closer then LAX? Or just easier? Thanks Joyce

    Yes, Pasadena is too close to LA, but when I lived there, I would brag about how I could take the Pasadena backroads and get to my office building without hitting a single traffic light - until they put a damn light at my garage entrance!

    Too bad about the Westin, they are usually good places to stay. Just returned from Pasadena, wished I could have spent a little more time there! Nice page :-)
