Nice hotel, friendly staff, but a few serious shortcomings for this level of hotel: 1) wifi was expensive and slow 2) no mini bar in the room 3) no water provided, and both bathroom taps were hot water and 4) no room service after 11pm, so if you wake up in the middle of the night thirsty, be prepared to...

Nice hotel. The front desk lady at check-in was excellent, the hotel decor was cool and bar is good. We booked a room including breakfast. Our booking confirmation email stated: “Stay for Breakfast rate, includes breakfast for 2 adults“. At check out, there was not mention of a breakfast charge. When I checked my credit card statement, I saw the... More

My husband and I got married in Sacramento (we currently live in Oakland) back in June of last year. I stayed the night before our wedding at the hotel with my sister, and my husband and I stayed at the Citizen Hotel on our wedding night. The Citizen Hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff is very friendly. The staff... More

This hotel has been nicely remodeled, keeping much of the character of the building while providing modern comforts. The bed was comfortable, and the soundproofing was good. Staff are professional and attentive.

We enjoyed our first stay at the citizen hotel this weekend as we flew down for a concert with friends. Good boutique hotel in the heart of sac. Very happy with Marriott redemption options and recognition. Joe the manager, drew and Dan at front desk were professional and willing to go the extra mile for us. Thank you all. Positives... More

We spent one nite at The Citizen Hotel. We were given a room on the 13th floor. It was cozy and well appointed. As we were relaxing after a full day of travel we became aware of the noise from the constantly running elevator and then a wedding party in the tent below our windows. As we were discussing whether... More

Trip was actually January of 2014. That month wasn't available for review. :) Even though we only live 20 miles away, we stayed here for a wedding downtown. The room was amazing. Bathroom was my favorite out of all the hotes we have stay in in the states. A huge walk in shower with wrap around curtain with a nice... More

The hotel is charming, well-preserved and historic. Rates are very reasonable. We chose this location for a desperately needed respite from the rigors of professional and family demands. Our stay on a Friday night was perfect. Our junior suite was a cozy haven. We were told it was in a quiet location upon check in. We walked to the Crocker... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback regarding your stay with us. While I certainly appreciate the kind words you mention about Friday night as well as Grange restaurant, I apologize for the noise on Saturday. As father of twin daughters, I know the pain of the Frozen song when you do not want to hear it!... More

We stayed three nights in conjunction with a wedding reception at the hotel. The decor is quirky and unusual, a fun departure from cookie cutter hotels. The staff in the hotel and the restaurant very attentive and friendly. The restaurant, The Grange, is the surprising hotel restaurant you would actually eat at even if you weren't staying there. Comfortable beds.The... More

We came to Sacramento for the weekend from SF to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and go to the Kings/Warriors game. I chose the Citizen based on positive reviews and the boutique feel of the decor (I'm not a fan of chain hotels). The location was also good because it's close to the Arena and sites in Old Sacramento. We had... More
