I spent 3 nights at the Citizen in April for work. Again, a great stay.

This time around, I booked the most basic room which had 2 full size beds (previously I had a junior suite). Upon check in no upgrades were available and in retrospect, I was thrilled I didn't change! I honestly liked this room better.

As requested, I was on a high floor - 23. Room 1321. The room location was perfect as I had no common walls with any other guest rooms so it was very quiet. The room had a very large walk-in closet. The bath was fine - no tub but a huge shower. Again, I just found this room more comfortable and hope to get it again on my next stay.

I ate at the Grange a couple of times and very much enjoyed the food.

All in all, the Citizen made work travel more tolerable. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I prefer the higher floors but all rooms seem unique.

The hotel is located on a very busy street so sometimes you have to circle around or wait for the Valet to park. Don't even try to find parking and walk, it just isn't worth it.

Check in was efficient and the staff was friendly. The lobby looks like an old library and is slightly reminiscent of an old lounge area from the turn of the century.

The rooms are a bit smaller, but we booked one of the larger, two room suites this time and was very pleased with the space. The furniture was antique as well, and not the most comfortable for lounging. The height of the hotel is nice as the windows provide views of the surrounding buildings and parks in the greater Capital area.

Numerous restaurant options exist Downtown and most are within walking distance, which is great if you want to avoid waiting for the Valet. However, the attached restaurant, Grange, is an outstanding choice.

Overall this is a great choice to stay in Sacramento, especially if you enjoy classic architecture and a sense of old time style.

Room Tip: Request a high floor with a view of the old courthouse.

I have stayed here several times on business trips. Always friendly, clean, and comfortable, and the service is quick and efficient. Close to many government offices and about a 5-minute walk to the convention center. The rooms are very stylish and not cookie-cutter. The on-premise restaurant, Grange, is really quite excellent, and there are many more great restaurants within walking distance. Ella, Blackbird, and Esquire Grill to name just a few are within a short walk.

Room Tip: Corner rooms that face west and south have lovely views of the capital and the coast range.

Great location to the capital and local eats. Charming decor and a stellar staff - always personable and smiling. Quirky, fun political artwork and quotes in the elevators. Cozy sitting room near the lobby. Tiny but tasteful rooms but hey, just hang out in the restaurant/bar! Very good breakfasts.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

A 3.5 would be more accurate, but that's not a bubble option, so I'm going with 3. Pluses: charming decor (I liked the big stripes and the couch in the sitting area was super comfy), efficient valet parking, great restaurant (both food and service); the Keurig coffee maker in the room. Minuses: the wedding noise (frankly, being around anyone's wedding is kind of annoying, but listening to someone else's party half the night is really annoying); and little lapses (like the room not being ready at 4 p.m for check-in, no toiletries in the bathroom, and the sub-par minibar (one of the rip-off kind that charge you if you lift an item off the shelf, PLUS the only liquor in it was a couple of Grey Goose vodka).

Room Tip: See other reviews for tips on a quieter room. Hotel is clearly aware of the issue and will tell you...

Stayed here 3 nights to attend convention at Convention Center. It's an easy walk away. Hotel is convenient to State Capital and environs (including lots of great restaurants). Decorated with a political theme - old political cartoons on walls, as well as blown-up photos of 70's era protest marches. Extremely comfortable roomy rooms. Would definitely stay again. The Grange is also fabulous.

Room Tip: There is a nightclub across the street on the north side. When it closed (at 2 am) on Thursday nigh...
