We loved this place! Built in the mid 19th century, in the middle of a preserved historic town, we were pleasantly surprised at how well the place is kept up. The hotel is furnished in period Victorian style. The staff dress accordingly. They are very friendly and helpful. We stayed during a heat wave and the retro-fitted air conditioning in... More

Our stay at the City Hotel was short--just one night--but it was a comfortable stay. The room, numero dos, was NOT haunted (at least we didn't experience anything) and was very nice. The bed was a little creaky, but my husband and I slept on the double-size bed just fine. It was very hot when we arrived, but the AC... More

This recreation of Gold Rush California is so cool! The hotel, with its high- very high - ceilings, and its old-fashioned balcony overlooking the old west town, feels like a step into a time capsule. There's a beautiful lounge in the area to which the rooms all open, with old-time chairs and couches, tables and coffee in the morning. The... More

I stayed in the City Hotel for 2 nights with several friends for my wedding this past weekend; we took over almost the entire hotel. The accomodations were wonderful, they were comfortable and clean, I asked for another pillow and was provided with one right away.The atmosphere of the hotel is great; a perfect getaway from home and step into...

we recently stayed at the City Hotel and were most pleased with everything. Our Austin Healey car club rented the all the rooms and we had the place to ourselves. It was great! We hung out in the upstairs parlor and socialized (?) until all hours. The Hotel was clean and comfortable. Shared showers were no problem and were super... More

A close friend of mine had her wedding in Columbia and we took over the town. I stayed at the City Hotel which was adorable. It was like stepping back in time to the late 1800's. The furniture and decor as well as all employees dressed in period clothing. I stayed in room 6 which had 2 full beds, beautiful... More

We visited Columbia to enrich our daughter's 4th grade study of the California Gold Rush. We opted to drive up on a Friday to stay over rather than "Day Trip" it and we're glad we did - staying at the City Hotel overnight, and waking up in an authentic 1850s town - BEFORE all the tourists arrived, was really amazing....

We loved this historic hotel right on the main street in Columbia. Very quiet at night and a real step back in time. Don't expect a Four Seasons style hotel with all the fluff. Do expect a charming and authentic experience. Note to pilots: we flew in to the nearby airport (o22) which is a 10 minute walk down the... More

The hotel captures the 19th century aura beautifully. We stayed in room 7. We had queen bed and 2 (working) windows. The dressed in the room was big enough to hold 3 days of clothing. The pastry shop had coffee in the morning. Everything is within walking distance. You can even make your own candles at the Seven Sisters candle... More

Imagine yourself transported to the late 1800's. You will be surrounded by authentic furniture and the feel of a period gold rush Inn, with the comfort of modern cozy mattress and a hot shower. All is merged seamlessly, with the modern amenities not intruding into the historical feel of the hotel. High ceilings, board games, quiet night, my kids still... More
