The Citizen Hotel, Autograph Collection
Ranked #7 of 82 Hotels in Sacramento
Reviewed 14 September 2011

This hotel was beautiful and a nice change from the hotel chains. The rooms are a little on the small size but the ambiance makes up for it. Everything was very clean and the bed was super comfy. The area in that part of town is a little on the rundown side but plenty to do within walking distance. Well worth the money!

Room Tip: If you aren't superstitious request a room on the 13th floor. They are a bit larger.

My husband treated me to a night stay here for my fortieth birthday, and it couldn't have been a better choice. This place is all about class. The decor is so perfect for the location...political pictures and themes permeate throughout the hotel. The suite was nicely arranged and the view of downtown from our window was fabulous. We ate at the Grange restaurant and enjoyed a slow, delicious meal. This was our first time staying at a Joie de Vivre hotel and has influenced many of our hotel stays since. We definitely look at these small boutique hotels before looking at the other chain hotels. The value for your money is superb!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral.

We had an excellent one-night stay at the Citizen. The building is wonderful -- an old place with a nice inside stairway (it's nice to be able to run down one flight without going to a dank, miserable stairwell) -- and the rooms are large and modern. Staff were friendly and helpful. Located only a couple blocks from the capitol so it's easy to walk over and look around or do business.

The only drawback was the room service menu. Room service utilizes the rather fancy Grange restaurant, located in the hotel, which is fine if you want a steak. But the vegetarian options were very limited and everything is pricey.

Room Tip: If you reserve on line you can request a cheap upgrade -- we got a suite for $9 when we checked in.

This is a lovely boutique hotel. Love the legal/political themes. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. There are a number of homeless folks around the location. But the hotel is worth overlooking them.

Hotel review only.

Very short stay arriving at 7pm and departing next day at 11am.
Pros:
-Clean
-Comfy bed
-Modern
-Great in room products
-Friendly valet service

Cons:
-Room 534, sun shines directly into the room at sunset and the room was ROASTING. We had the air on full blast and it was incredibly warm. If we were staying longer I would have asked for a different room.
-For being so new, very dirty hall carpeting
-$$$ for valet overnight parking.

I would stay again though - great special occassion hotel!

This hotel is a welcome addition to downtown Sacrameto. I stayed in a room with two beds on the 13 floor. The bedroom itself was small, but the bathroom was immense!! I loved that there was a window in the bathroom. The decorations were very stylized and well thought out. Everything in the room was clean and I felt very comfortable there.
