“Luxurious Lodging in a Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed at the Diamond Hotel and no lie...it's a gem!

Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed. The bed was comfy, linens luxurious and pillows fluffy. Even the windows opened, allowing us to enjoy the fresh, local air while we slept.

Towels were fluffy, robes and slippers were provided, and the Avena toiletries were so nice that I think that I will soon be changing my shampoo brand!

Plus, lotsa freebies and charming touches: a free drink in the hotel bar, free real breakfast, and a free pass to a local plus-de-ultra health club. Heck, there was even a little bag of trail mix on our pillow, California's version of a chocolate truffle, I guess.

Great central location too....we were able to walk to campus, where I was lecturing at the Gateway Science Museum.

A very pleasant stay.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Chico. The rooms are very comfortable and include robes and slippers! The free breakfast at the restaurant was delicious and the CSU Chico campus is very close.

Stayed September 2013

Traveling from Ashland, Oregon to Plumas County, we wanted to visit and see Chico, home of Chico State College. The Diamond Hotel looked like the place to stay, and it was.
A really neat remodel. Parking "reserved" next door in the structure. Passes to one of the best gym and pool facilities around. Helpful and gracious staff. (Helpful with maps, directions to the Gym, and to Chico's own Ice Cream store.)

Our room was quite spacious, with a nice large bathroom and all the amenities.

We had a late lunch with 1/2 price tapas (most interesting tacos and other items), a pleasant dinner (we opted for a light dinner, having visited the town's local ice cream store), and we enjoyed a complete breakfast (included). All meals were good and served in pleasant surroundings. (We haven't been able to figure why there might be negative reviews unless from "cranky" people.)

It is a short walk to the Campus of Chico State and we did the walk around the campus at night and in the morning.

There are a number of motels and chain hotels around, but why do that when there is a unique spot like the Diamond Hotel

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor, a higher floor might give a better view of the trees etc of the adjacent n...

We've been staying at HD once or twice a year since the major remodeling that took place about 10 years ago. They've discovered, and employed, the secret to a successful hotel: maintenance, proper, skilled, and frequently applied. THe place is as inviting as it was during our first visit. Keep up the great work.

THe breakfasts are outstanding as well. Cooked to order in a very nice setting.

Room Tip: We've had no complaints for any of the rooms we've stayed in. THe last two visits we stayed...

We live in Chico and once in a while enjoy staying in a suite at the Hotel Diamond as a special treat. It's like being on vacation without having to go on vacation. The hotel is in the heart of downtown Chico surrounded by a number of fantastic restaurants & shopping. The beautiful fountains in the city plaza are across the street and the park is within walking distance. We will continue to do this every chance we get!

Room Tip: Suites 402 & 411 are like luxury apartments...very comfortable and spacious with a balcony.

This is a great spot right downtown near everything! The staff was awesome and we were compted a cocktail at arrival and got $10.00 each off our breakfast. The room was perfect for the short time we were there (Just overnight) Great beds, very quite and the towels were fantastac.
For family's with small kids, mabe not the best choice due to no pool, but for anyone else, this is the place to stay in Chico!

On a recent road trip mu husband and I ran onto a little oasis in the California Rice Country. The rooms were spacious, beds were inviting, impeccable service, great location, and supper clean. We also had dinner in the adjacent restaurant nice bar scene and good food. Well worth a stop. Thursday nights during the summer the town fills the downtown for a farmer's market festival. A real treat!
