“Gem of a place in a very pretty town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Perfect location and a beautiful historic restoration hotel with all modern amenities. Right in the middle of everything, good offsite parking, walkable to lots of shops, restaurants, parks, lovely college campus and historical attractions in this green leafy small town. Spacious rooms, extremely comfortable plush beds, elegant decor and very fairly priced for the quality and luxury of the stay. Only downside was poor bathroom lighting - harsh with overhead light.

Room Tip: We had a corner room in the back - very quiet and with two sides of room with windows.

Thank you for your review, we are very glad your enjoyed your stay with us! Since your stay in August, we have replaced all hotel lighting with energy saving light bulbs, that start off very dim and increase to normal wattage to help with the adjusting of your eyes to the light. I hope this will solve that problem for you and we hope to see you in the future!

I stayed here for 4 nights on my first visit to Chico. The hotel is beautiful. My room was comfy and I loved the Aveda products. Breakfast in the attached restaurant is included: eggs and pancakes to order as well as fresh fruit and oatmeal. Great location in the heart of downtown. I highly recommend the Thursday night market. The best produce I've ever seen!! Access to a health club is a mile + away. It has everything, including a spacious lap pool

Just stayed 5 nights. Attentive, friendly and consistent service. Room and bathroom was spacious (standard king), clean and bright. High quality, useful room amenities. The hotel was sedate, and with the bed being very comfortable, I was afforded good night sleeps. No doubt I will stay here again when visiting Chino.

This renovated building is beautiful and in the heart of downtown. Easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and Chico State. Breakfast each morning is free and is wonderful... eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc. Staff is wonderful and the bed was super comfortable. Will stay here every time I go to Chico to visit my college sons.

Room Tip: I stayed in a delux room on the 3rd floor and slept very well

This is a nice remodeled hotel and was a good value for the price. Its located right downtown so its easy to walk to everything. My only complaint was that the room was loud and the AC was a bit tricky to get to stay on. Other than that the service was great, breakfast was good.

I have stayed at many of the hotels in Chico and this is the most comfortable and well positioned hotel for being downtown and close to the school. rooms are very comfortable and plush by Chico standards. we utilized the breakfast this time and found that the omelets are the best choice. It is nice to have an adult oriented place in town to balance out the many more casual places in Chico.

Room Tip: My preference is for rooms away from the parking garage side due to the pigeon droppings, but the wi...

Thank you for your review. Chico is a college town and does offer a lot of casual places to go but we also have a more upscale adult side and we are glad to be apart of that and show you a good time. See you in the future!

The Diamond is the best hotel in the area and in the middle of downtown near the university. Service and housekeeping are excellent, as is the decor. The room includes a good breakfast at Johnnies restaurant off the lobby. Parking is convenient in a garage next door with reserved places for the hotel. There is no wifi so my suggestion to the hotel is that they routinely make available USB connections for the internet outlets in the rooms. Send someone to Radio Shack. Lack of wifi is rare these days, even in the remotest of hotels, and I normally wouldn't stay anywhere without it. Why lose business for such a small matter?

Room Tip: Higher floors and not near an ice machine.
