Glendale Hotel closer to a Gold Line stop

We have tickets for the 2008 Rose Parade and are struggling with the rates and availablity for lodging in Pasadena. Could anyone recommend a moderately priced hotel in Glendale that is a short cab ride to one of the Gold Line stops.

Thank you VT'rs

Did you look at Arcadia? Short cab ride to Gold Line at Sierra Madre Blvd. Santa Anita Inn runs about70.00 a night, Hampton Inn around109.00 per night, Embassy Suites (which includes breakfast and Happy Hour, which I recommend) at239.00 per night. Also call Pasadena Visitor's Bureau (they have a website) for other suggestions.

Sorry, but the Gold line really will not help you with lodging in Glendale.

Consider a map of the Pasadena/Glendale area. Now imagine a clock with the Rose Bowl parade site in the middle of it. You will find that one end of the Gold line is at 6:00, and the other about 2:00. Glendale is about 9:00.

No availability in Arcadia unfortunately. We need lodging for 12/31 - 1/2/08. The hotels in Arcadia are either full or have 3 night minimums, we only need two nights. I guess the alternative would be to stay in LA and come into Pasadena from that direction. Although, I have been told to avoid this because of the enormous number of people going to the parade from that direction. I was hoping to find a place in Glendale that was maybe 10 - 15 minute cab ride from the hotel to a gold line stop. It sounds like this may not be possible. I need to get from “9” to “6” on the Rose Parade Clock!!

We will keep checking around. I called the Tourist Bureau and didn’t have much luck with them.

Thanks again!
