I held a small (10 people) dinner party for my family and friends to meet my fiance'. Everything was exceptional. The Ceasar Salad was amazing and the Rib Eye steak was the best I have had in recent memory.

A truly unique hotel experience. We stayed not the Detla King for two nights. Overall it was a great experience. A real piece of American history. The service was fantastic Highly recommended. Cocktails on the deck are a must.

Delta King is an old river boat that has been permanently moored and turned into a unique hotel. It is in a perfect location for walking in Old Sacramento (Railroad Museum, shops, restaurants, etc. Staff are very accommodating. Being an old river boat, the rooms are a bit on the small side (that's to be expected) but are nicely furnished... More

This quirky hotel boat is a gem. The rooms are a little on the small size but given you're on a beautiful boat it's a small price to pay. The location is amazing, you can walk all around the old town, there are restaurants/bars close by and a few blocks away from the centre of Sacramento. The breakfast was very... More

Fun and "different" experience! Not the Ritz Carlton but an authentic refurbished 285 foot riverboat. The boat was built in 1927 and is docked on the Sacramento River. Rooms are a nice size; however the bathroom could use some attention. Views from the riverside of the boat are nice and is a short walk to "Old Town" Sacramento.

We loved it on board the Delta King. Our room (529) was spacious and clean with everything we needed. This is a really original place to stay with it being an actual (if retired) paddle steamer. All the staff were very helpful and we had a lovely time. Would definitely return if in Sacramento again.

My wife and I got married on the Delta King, the ceremony and reception was great. Good food, good service, friendly helpful staff during the event. My wife and I stayed in the "Captains Quarters" (Room 501) at the bow of the ship. This room was supposed to be the best of the best rooms, It was not anything close... More

We wanted a special place to celebrate our 5th anniversary. The Delta King provided a perfect place to do so. We had a room overlooking the Sacramento River. The bathroom had a claw footed tube to add some charm. The room was nicely appointed. The deck outside the room was perfect for enjoying the view and relaxing. We also had... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during our trip around California. To be honest i was pleasently surprised by its quality of rooms. We stayed in a king size room which although small had all that we needed within it. At times we felt as if we were on the set of a Poirot movie, it was great. We made full... More

A fun time! The old paddle wheeler looks pretty good, and is located right alongside the historic downtown of Sacramento. Checking in was easy and the staff was helpful. It's a ship, so there are ladders (stairways) to be negotiated. The rooms were a little small by modern standards, even for a ship, but we were comfortable.
