    Exceeded expectations!

    We had a fabulous first stay....TJ is a wonderfully interesting and attentive host; the home is exquisite! We were blown away with the beauty and comfort. The vibe is friendly and the dining recommendation for sushi was a 10+. Our bed was extremely comfortable and all in all my husband and I look forward to returning soon. Thank you TJ for sharing your stories, memorabilia and home with us.

    Elegance, luxury and home comfort in Pasadena

    Once again, absolutely amazing. How I wish I had discovered this gem and TJ it’s host, years ago. TJ is the quintessential innkeeper, personable , caring and goes the extra mile to make everything perfect . The home is Pasadena for the rich and famous, luxurious but with an edge of comfort . Will definitely be back

    Hidden gem in Pasadena hills

    My husband and I found this beautiful hidden gem for a quick weekend stay after a family wedding shower. We were pleasantly surprised by how gorgeous the guest house was and the spectacular view overlooking the city, tucked away privately in the hills. Our room was very cozy and the common kitchen, living room and outdoor areas were absolutely beautiful, like a European Villa. The host TJ was amazing, so warm, kind and welcoming. He offered us a water and beer upon arriving and then had a perfect and simple continental breakfast ready the next morning. We will definitely come back to stay and recommend The Patrician to everyone!

    What can I say that hasn’t already been said?

    I visited this lovely property in Pasadena on a business trip. I can’t tell you how wonderful and accommodating TJ was in words, but I will leave you with the idea you will walk away feeling like family. The place was perfectly quiet, full of history, and had an incredible sunset view. I’d happily revisit this property in a heartbeat. It’s also located about 20 minutes from some amazing hiking trails in the Glen Canyon area. I would absolutely recommend this place over any hotel in LA.

    Highly recommended!

    A lovely place to stay! Up in the hills just enough that you feel removed from the freeway and downtown Pasadena. TJ is a very gracious host; from the freshly squeezed orange juice to the delightful coffee created by his Belgian syphon coffeemaker, he creates an atmosphere where all are welcome but none obliged, if you will. The rooms are elegantly decorated with comfortable beds...and the scenery is panoramic.

    If you want to feel pampered and well taken care of, come and stay here. TJ is an amazing host who is thoughtful, engaging to talk to, and also has a wealth of knowledge for how to spend your time in LA if you need inspiration. The house and its surroundings are gorgeous and feel welcoming. One of the finest places to stay in the Pasadena area.

    Until we meet again

    The Patrician is a unique and unusually brilliant alternative to overrated stuffy Hotel chains, rude staff and overpriced accomodations for what you get in total. Imagine arriving at a hillside retreat run by your fascinating favorite cousin who always makes you smile with his witty gift of gab and thoughtfull stories. If seclusion and complete separation from others is your goal when traveling then this might not be the place for you. If accepting strangers to join you for a random get-together in a angelic setting and letting your guard down for a night or two, then The Patrician is the location to explore that extrovert side of yourself that has been dormant for too long. TJ is not just a caring and friendly host but a maestro of kindness and goodwill that will have you leaving his classy and vibrant home full of warmth and appreciation for meeting him and becoming...albeit temporarily...part of the Patrician family yearning to return someday again.

    Gem in the hills

    We had a lovely stay at The Patrician. TJ is a gracious and warm host. There was interesting conversation to be had over coffee and tea every morning. The downstairs room is comfortably furnished. Please note that the bathroom is shared if that type of setup is not your ideal situation. The home is filled with items from TJ's travels and the outside grounds are beautiful. All in all, an interesting and nice place to stay.
