The Citizen is the nicest hotel I've seen in Sacramento, and one of the best I've stayed in. The service was great, and the interior is gorgeous, jazzy & classic. The rooms were super clean, and there are 2 great coffee shops right on either side of the hotel. I would 100% recommend it to anyone else.

I spent one night here for a business trip. As usual for me, I flew in tired and hungry with not much time to spare before my meetings. At the Citizen, I was welcomed by a polite attentive staff and a clean comfortable room. I was able to get a reasonably priced quick bite to eat from room service before... More

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,... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

A short walk away from the state capitol and city hall. This is a great hotel that has been remodeled for a retro urban 1960s look and feel to it. It has all a really comfortable bed too. The rooms are just the right size. Coffee maker is in the armoire. Bathrooms have nice amenities. I would definitely stay here... More
