In spite of it’s name suggesting a 500 room luxury hotel (the promoter’s idea for gaining priority in searches) the Patrician is a beautiful large converted house high on a ridge overlooking Pasadena and the LA basin, thus it’s really a guest house, but oh so nice! With a pretty garden on a point overlooking the city, we declared our intention to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset there. TJ, the owner and host, unexpectedly then set a table for us with a dish of nuts and some wine glasses. We had a most pleasant discussion with him (multiple times during our one-night stay) and I felt his friendly and interested involvement enhanced our experience here greatly. We had the single room up a circular stairs from the kitchen. The room (smallish with two twin beds) was tastefully furnished with its own bathroom off the landing outside the door. About 8 AM the scent of warming breakfast croissants wafting up the stairs was a delicious wake-up. This stay was on the expensive side for us but we took a chance based on the description and reviews—it was worth every penny!

I had stayed in a couple of Big Chain hotels in Pasadena in the past, and was looking for something less bland and boring. I took a chance on The Patrician, and oh boy was it worthwhile. It's a hilltop mansion from the '20s which oozes quirky charm. The setting and views are stunning, and you really feel privileged to GET to stay there - for less than the Big Chain hotels cost. Really more of a B&B than a hotel, but don't let that put you off. I'm normally not a fan of B&Bs, as they can feel like you're intruding on someone's life, but TJ is such a gracious host that this never crosses your mind. They can also sometimes be a bit short on privacy, but at least the room I stayed in (The Zen Garden Room) was very private - at the top of its own spiral staircase. I hesitate to write a review mainly because I don't want anyone else to know about how awesome this place and book it up so far in advance that I never get to stay there again!

Very cute and beautiful retro mansion, I would say you will definitely enjoy the great mansion with both sunrise and sunset views. The homeowner has collected a lot of antiques, and every arrangement is very tempting. The host was so nice to me and my son that I returned from New York to LA and booked another 10 days.

To start things off, it was a balmy summer night in Los Angeles, California. The drive up to TJs was a long winding climb through the hills of California. Crickets chirped in the forest bringing a magical feel to the tree lined street, which instantly calmed our post-travel nerves When we arrived, TJ walked down to greet us with a warm smile, ready to welcome us into his home. Pleasantly surprised, we followed him up the exquisitely tiled stairs and entered the home. It was a marvelous sight to behold, as the decorations, furnishing and unique objects caught our eye and sparkled in the low light- creating a beautiful ambiance. Unbeknownst to us, we had arrived at the perfect time, for a pizza 🍕 party and one of TJs hand spun, infamous lemon 🍋 drops 🍸 TJ welcomed us into his home like we were his own family. Although our trip to LA was for an unfortunate event, our host at The Patrician Hollywood Universal made our stay a ray of sunshine ☀️ during a difficult time. The property itself was blissfully tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown LA, creating a zen like feel only a birds eye distance from the city. The view was marvelous, and the house was regal. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud ☁️ and the complimentary breakfast was fit for the likes of Kings and Queens. Fresh squeezed orange juice made by TJ himself each morning created a zesty and invigorating start to the day. Incredibly clean. Max comfort. if you get the chance to stay here dont hesitate!

We weren’t sure what to expect from our stay. The place looked great and from all of the pictures. What we got was way more than we paid for. TJ was the best host. The place was AMAZING. The age and history of the house were so interesting. The views were to die for. If we could double the available starts to give we would.
