Jazz era cool in Sacramento for the modern day politico
The eternal glamour of politics feels downright marvelous at this stylish full-service hotel. The Citizen Hotel opened in fall 2008 in a historic 14-story, 83-year-old brick building, retaining hand-carved stair railings, vintage elevators and vaulted ceilings. This walkable location in the heart of downtown Sacramento is two blocks to the State Capitol and three to the Sacramento Convention Center.
Highlights:
  • Green Certified by the state of California
  • Complimentary wine tasting nightly
  • Apple Mac Mini in all guest rooms
  • On-site restaurant Grange is one of Sacramento's contemporary dining stars
Rooms

Custom design expresses the Citizen Hotel's distinctive 1920s tone. Stately bedding, window treatments and furniture vary in all 198 rooms. Expect quality hand-carved wood, 300-thread count sheets and marble fixtures. Easily join the modern world with in-room Apple Mac Mini computers, iPod docking stations, State Capitol feed channels free on HD LCD TVs and a video library of political movie titles. Most rooms have cityscape views. Refrigerators are available (fees apply). Penthouse suites on the 14th floor have Jacuzzis and share a 400-square-foot balcony. Room service is available. High-speed wired and wireless Internet access is available (fees apply).

Features

Early California is re-imagined in bold marble, brass, leather and velvet in the old world lobby and lofted bar The Scandal, best enjoyed during complimentary weeknight wine tastings. Framed political quips provide a dash of whimsy for classy clientele of this Joie de Vivre property. The Citizen Hotel offers valet parking (fees apply).

Dining

On-site American brasserie-style Grange Restaurant and Bar is a star in the contemporary Sacramento dining scene. Seasonal fare is direct from California's nearby Central Valley. The wine list is entirely from California.

A night in Sac

After making my way through the one -way streets everything was fine. Classy hotel with classy staff. Everyone from the valet to the front desk to the restaurant, was professional and helpful. If ever I need to stay in Sacramento again I will choose the Citizen. Not your normal chain hotel but one with character and class. And that's I like.

Vintage charm & comfory

I enjoyed the look & feel of the hotel. It was gracious & comfortable. I DIDn't like the surcharge for the slow-ish wifi, but otherwise, all was fine. The area is a bit iffy - lots of closed businesses, & rather deserted at night - but that is simply the trend in many cities, with a struggling downtown area. Nice bars, restaurants within easy walking distance, the bar/redtsursnt in the hotel is good, & it wasveasy to get to & from my conference at the convention center.

Just Ok

This was my first time at this hotel. All went smooth until check-in when I was told my check in was for the day before I arrived and I missed it. Of all the times I was happy to have the [...] confirmation on my phone. For scaring me and their error, they gave me a $20 credit to their bar and a small room upgrade to a corner room. The size of the corner room upgrade was normal, but I can see how their normal size rooms can be small. The hotel is in a very old building.

Sacramento boutique hotel

I visited Sacramento to run a marathon. The hotel was conveniently located to the finish area and Expo. The hotel is also in a walking distance from Amtrak station, Westfield mall and Capitol building. Hotel staff is very nice and helpful. The room is not large but clean and functional.
