“Lots of character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I really enjoyed staying at the Citizen. The hotel is an impressive historic building that has been beautifully renovated. I especially liked the hotel's political theme, with political cartoons on the walls and law books in the lobby. My room was very comfortable and nicely decorated and the staff were friendly. The hotel is located near the State Capitol, a couple of movie theaters, Starbucks, and a nice lunch spot called the Ambrosia Cafe. I imagine the hotel will become an anchor for the downtown area. I hope to stay there again.

This hotel is wonderful! The architecture is amazing. It looks like it has been fully restored and looks beautiful. Its close to everything you would like to go to and see. The restaurant is very beautiful and the food is great. I will definitely go back.

Wonderful old hotel with political cartoons everywhere. Service excellent. Room service food outstanding. If you stay join their club. Chocolates and wine in your room. Bed was very comfortable. I am not sure if you could get a room ver looking the capital but tht would be amazing.

I recently stayed at the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento for a business seminar. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The door and front desk staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. So were the people at the front door. I loved the atmosphere of this hotel and the view of the capitol from my room. It was a large room, nicely furnished, and had very soft & comfortable sheet. I would highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Capitol which is all light up at night. It's a gorgeous view...

I stayed at the Citizen Hotel this past weekend for a conference and found this hotel to be exceptional. The rooms were nice, and the customer sevice was fantastic. It has kind of a 'boutique feel' to it. I would definitely recommend it!

The Citizen Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel in downtown Sacramento, just minutes from the Capitol, and a short taxi ride from the Midtown restaurants and bars. In a town full of chain hotels, the Citizen Hotel is a nice reprieve with good facilities, plenty of space, and an upscale feel.

From the moment we pulled up to the valet station, we felt welcome. Valet parking was $17 (although included on our Parking Package, which was the same price as the Best Available Rate) and was a simple affair: we pulled up, grabbed our stuff, and were done. Check-in was fast and efficient with a super friendly employee. He was quick to describe the amenities and mentioned that our welcome beverage of a split of red wine (free for Joy of Club members) was already in our room.

Our twin room, on the sixth floor, was a good size and featured everything you would expect: minibar, safe, coffee maker, iPod clock radio, and quality toiletries (from Lather). I had zero complaints with the room and slept soundly, although if you're light sleeper, you will appreciate the ear plugs available in the bathroom. Minibar prices were reasonable ($1.50 for a soda, $4 for sparkling water, $5.50 for a beer), although there is a Rite Aid just a block away as well.

The fitness center was on the sixth floor and was small, but well equipped (treadmills, weights, yoga mats, etc.). While we didn't have breakfast at Grange, we did grab drinks after arriving and they were solid, although pricey. It definitely seemed as though locals frequented Grange and everyone we spoke to in Sacramento knew of it.

Overall, I had no complaints and had a really pleasant stay. Compared to the Sheraton Grand where I had stayed the previous time, the Capitol Hotel is a no brainer and well worth choosing.

Stayed there for one night on a road trip. They welcomed my pup with open arms and didn't charge some insane pet fee.

The room service was impeccable. The menu is fresh each day, but if they have the tuna tartare, get it!
