I loved this place, it felt like home. Very friendly staff, clean good size room, comfortable bed huge shower/bathroom area and lots of little things to make you feel good. I would stay in this place every time I visit Chico and I wish they were more hotels like this in the big cities I often stay at.

I was happy to come back to Hotel Diamond after a great stay in 2012. I was however disappointed with the fact the Wifi (and Ethernet) was not working at all for 2 days and then for the rest of my stay it was intermittent (available maybe 30% of the time) and extremely unreliable. I had to spend hours every... More

This was our first visit to Chico and selected Hotel Diamond based on a great rate and positive TA reviews. The great reviews were right on the mark and everything about our stay was great. Location is right in the downtown area, convenient to strolling the shops and restaurants, and our rate of $133 was a bargain considering that it... More

Chico has limited offerings for business travelers. No Hilton properties, and the Marriotts are in an industrial area. Located downtown, this historic property has been updated to modern standards, and retains its charm. Rooms are on the small side, but well-appointed and clean.

Thank you for your review, you are right, due to the age of the building we offer a few rooms that are marketed as having the appeal of being the same size as hotel rooms circa 1904 (when our hotel was originally built). Unfortunately for most, our "petite historics" (which feature a twin bed) are not the right choice. We'd... More

HOTEL DIAMOND Had occasion to be in Chico recently and wanted to stay downtown rather than out on the Freeways. The Hotel Diamond came up as the only real alternative and we are glad that it did. It made for an easy decision and the right decision. Always a little leery of ‘Historical Hotels’, this one was spot on. Operating... More

The hotel is in a great area: downtown, close to many shops and restaurants. They have their own restaurant which is really good also. The staff was very nice. We first had a room that was very noisy. We asked to move to a different room and it was not a problem. We also did not have TV working the... More

We stayed at this hotel when checking out the University. It's only a few blocks walking distance and right in the middle of a quaint downtown, but on a side street. There's a Starbucks a block away and a parking garage. The staff was very accomadating and friendly and the breakfast which was included was very good. The beds were... More

Thank you for your review! Since your stay in March we have taken measures to make sure that this is no longer a issue. Unfortunately, since our parking garage is owned by the city of Chico, we are unable to install video cameras, but we now have a privately employed security guard who walks the premise. As well as scheduled,... More

First trip to Chico, CA and I'll be back. What a great town and the Diamond is the perfect hotel. Very clean and comfortable, the hotel has just enough history to make it a great spot to stay if you like the boutique hotel experience.

I selected this property based on other reviews here. They did not disappoint. The hotel is modeled after one that stood in the same spot about 100 years earlier, and it has many sweet antique touches. The bath toiletries were Aveda, a favorite brand of mine. Our room was spacious. Room enough even to share with our potential student, as... More

We stayed 2 night here and loved it! The room was cute, but a little small. The location was ideal to enjoying all the restaurant, bars, shops, Chico state campus and the park. In the morning we received a free breakfast and it was outstanding. I go to Chico frequently and I'llnever stay anywhere else. I'd highly recommend hotel diamond.
