I reserved a suite for one night to accommodate myself my husband and my infant. Check in was smooth and we went to bed early. At 11:30 or so the entire hotel had to be evacuated due to fire. We walked down from the 3rd floor theough the lobby which was smoky. When I got outside it was cold, here... More

It is very unfortunate that the building next to ours suffered a fire. We were ordered to evacuate the hotel by the Fire Chief on the scene. Due to the fire being in the adjacent building we had little access to information during this crisis and the fire department was more concerned in bringing the fire under control than to... More

The Citizen Hotel is a really cool, modern, politically-themed boutique hotel in a historic building. The rooms and lobby are decorated beautifully and it just feels like a special place. The customer service is first class and there are lots of added amenities in the rooms. I only ate breakfast in the restaurant, but it was delightful. I was disappointed... More

We traveled for fun to Sacramento and enjoyed the citizen hotel. Our room was a corner room with pleanty of space. The staff was very informative and helped plan our outings to the American river bike trail, old sac, and the state capital. The staff at the citizen put in extra effort and really took care of all our needs.... More

This is a big hotel with a boutique feel. They make all the spaces nice and cozy but not cramped instead of the huge spaces with a large chain hotel. The hotel is decorated beautifully and with being right near the capital has old political art hung up throughout. The rooms themselves are gorgeous and super comfortable. We stayed in... More

I chose this hotel based on closeness to downtown and the good reviews on this site. I was not disapointed. A bellman walked down the sidewalk to greet me as i left the airport shuttle. The lobby was quiet and elegant. Elevators are decorated with political quotes. The room was a bit on the small side, but the bathroom was... More

This is a beautifully-restored boutique hotel in an early 19th century apartment building. My only complaint is the small rooms, but that's okay. But who needs a huge room, especially if you are traveling alone. You will be pampered at this well-appointed downtown hotel. Highly recommended.

I'll admit, last time I reviewed this hotel, I rated it poorly due to a billing issue (March 2010). The manager called me and apologized, and the policy has since changed. I stayed here 2 weeks ago, and was given room 1322. Wow. I could have had a party in my bathroom. The bedroom, as usual, was comfortable, sumptuous, intimate,... More

The Citizen is a hotel we come to whenever we are in Sacramento. Like other JDV properties, it is well decorated with a distinct theme throughout-in this case, politics! It is clean, and has everything you need when here on business. The restaurant is great as well.

So firstly this is a lovely hotel and is well decorated, the room was excellent and if you could move it to San Fran or NYC you could charge a fortune :-) Based on reviews I stayed here for one night booked directly with the hotel, it was over Christmas. The website made a big deal about putting your name... More

Great service; nice restaurant; comfortable room...although the work out room was simple there are so many beautiful places outdoors this was not an issue. Like the wine social hour etc. I would stay here again next time I do business in Sacramento.
