Pasadena's First Hyatt Hotel Will Finally Celebrate Grand Opening

It rolled out with a soft opening in the frenzied days of late December just before the last Rose Parade. Now, after catching its breath and getting sorted a bit more, the Hyatt Place Pasadena is ready for its official grand opening.

The hotel will host a couple hundred guests on Wednesday, Feb. 20 for a night of food, drinks, and live entertainment, including a band and DJ and toasting to the city’s first Hyatt-branded hotel.

The Hyatt Place brand is one of many different hotel lines underneath the Hyatt banner. Grand Hyatts are larger, full-service luxury hotels that offer a resort-like experience. Park Hyatts do boutique luxury on a slightly smaller scale, emphasizing dining and wellness services.

The Hyatt Place Pasadena takes a step back and lends itself to business and group travel.

However, the hotel is situated strategically located on the corner of East Green Street and South Los Robles Avenue.

According to Brandon Taba, Hyatt Place Pasadena’s Director of Sales and Marketing, “business has been steady and picking up.” During the weekends, the Hyatt is experiencing more family and leisure travel.

Guests can bring their furry friends, too; the Hyatt welcomes cats and dogs through its doors.

The Hyatt’s Coffee and Cocktails Bar could serve as a prime shipping off point for a night out on the town. The bar is spacious and sparking brand new (as are the rooms). Drop in for a Moscow Mule, then catch a flick at the ArcLight, for example.

Hyatt’s Breakfast is a continental style buffet and takes place in what looks like a Food Network kitchen. Seriously, it’s beautiful.

The Hyatt offers up great meeting rooms for local groups and events. The hotel maintains 2,800 feet of naturally lit meeting rooms as well as a second-floor patio deck that will be available as a reception space.

The Hyatt has a 24/7 gym, 24/7 business center, and various 24/7 food options, just so you know. If you’re wandering around Old Pasadena in the middle of the night or are up super early in the morning, maybe stop by and grab a bite from the Gallery Market.

The hotel has partnered with a number of organizations including Caltech and East West Bank (whose headquarters is in Pasadena) to offer discounted rates to verifiable members.

The Hyatt Place Pasadena is located at 399 E Green St. Visit or call (626) 788-9108.
