This is a nice small boutique hotel in downtown Sacramento. The rooms are very nice, with comfortable beds. It is clean and well maintained. The service is very nice. They have valet parking. There were three weddings here last night and they all looked like they were well managed. Despite that we didn't hear any noise and weren't disturbed. Several... More

The rooms are quiet and comfortable. Service is welcoming but not overwhelming. Outstanding and creative food in the Grange, or from room service. Great bartenders. Alycia was above and beyond last visit.

Not sure where else I would stay during a visit to Sacramento other than the Citizen: great location (just a few blocks from the Convention Center, Old Town, the Capitol Bldg & several parks), although for good food and a great bar scene you really don't have to leave the hotel. Staff is very friendly & helpful, rooms are very... More

Grat local eateries and Bars within a block or so. Crest theater also a block. We had our car parked and didn't drive... More

I was in Sacramento for business and stayed at The Citizen Hotel. The hotel staff treates it guests with excellent service, are friendly and helpful, and makes you feel special. The hotel is in a remodeled office building that was built in the 1920s. The remodel was done with love as they returned the bulding to its former glory. The... More

The Citizen Hotel was awesome! Very nice and clean rooms, great service and perfect location for the wedding we were attending. Staff was super friendly and helpful from the desk, to door, to room service staff.

When I travel for business, I want a simple, clean and comfortable spot with a good breakfast and a great cocktail. The Citizen and the Grange provide just that. Location is central and gives good access to the best coffee place in town too. I wish that the bathroom had more light.

A great change from all the chain hotels I stay at as a frequent business traveler. The historic building has much charm and character. Staff was top notch. Room was excellent (as was the remainder of the property). Great ambiance.

This was my 2nd stay here and it was even better than the 1st. Beautiful room, comfortable bed, quiet, great staff. I would have loved to have been able to stay longer. Roms are great and have everything you need, but better than that are the staff. Kind, clear, helpful - the best. My only complaint (and I'm searching here)... More

I visit Sacramento regularly as part of my work. I discovered the Citizen Hotel several months ago and have continued to stay there whenever I can. Centrally located, it is a mere three blocks from the State Capital Building, the Citizen stands as a monument to California's political history. Completely refurbished, it's well-chosen artifacts bring to mind the good old... More
