I stayed a night at the Citizen recently on yet another business trip to Sacramento. Thank God I found it! (My prior overnight was not my favorite.) The pictures posted do not do it justice. I found the hotel to be much nicer in person and will definitely stay here in the future.
I had booked a king room but upon check-in was offered various upgrade options, including to a junior suite for only $19 more, an offer I decided to accept (I was also offered the super fancy suite on the top floor for $150 more - maybe next time!).
The room was large with a king bed, a good-sized sitting area, two TVs, a desk and two club sort of chairs. It was nice to have a bit of extra space. The bath was also fine - single sink and shower tub combo. Unlike my prior hotel, the room actually had a safe!! And an iPod dock/clock. It also included a Keurig coffee maker which also can be used for hot water/tea which I loved. The bed was very comfortable with nice linens and pillows. I was on the 9th floor and found the hotel to be very quiet (Room 901 to be exact if you want a quiet room).
What I liked about the Citizen is that it was classic without looking old and run down. It is clearly an old building but it is not dated in a bad way.
The staff was great. I forgot my toothbrush and paste - not a problem, they had both. I had issues with the TV - not a problem, engineering came right over.
I was able to squeeze in a workout. The fitness center was not super fancy but had a couple of treadmills, a bike, an elliptical as well as a various fitness balls and weights.
I ate at the Grange twice for breakfast and once for dinner. I particularly enjoyed the breakfasts, but dinner was also very good.
I highly recommend the CItizen if you need to stay in SAC.
