The Westin Pasadena is located in the heart of Pasadena, a lovely city close to Los Angeles. Should you not wish to rent a car, you can easily take the LAX FlyAway bus to Union Station in downtown LA (http://www.lawa.org/flyaway/content.aspx?id=10152 ), and then take the Gold Line light rail to the Memorial Park station in Pasadena, which is an approximately fifteen-minute walk from the Westin Pasadena (https://media.metro.net/riding_metro/bus_overview/images/804.pdf ), but you may be able to call the Westin upon your arrival at Memorial Park station, to request a pick-up.

The Westin is within walking distance of historic Old Town Pasadena, many terrific restaurants, bars, galleries, shopping, and cultural sites and museums (including the Huntington Library and Gardens, the Gamble House, the Norton Simon, the USC Pacific Asia Museum, and the Pasadena Museum of California Art).
