When the government shut down we had to reorganize our trip to CA that was to include Kings canyon and Yosemite. So we decided on Lake Tahoe with a stop of from San Fran in Sacramento...and Boy oh boy we were so Happy with our choice. First off The Citizen was like a breath of fresh air...not your usual run of the mill hotel. The decor was wonderful and the slight tongue in cheek humour throughout was refreshing! Old world character with today's amenities made this Boutique Hotel stand out! Also the price was great we were there on a Friday night and the cost was comparable to a Marriott etc, if not better! There is a keurig in every room which is such a great idea. Bathroom was huge and even had a window. Bed was soooo comfortable and again the decor was a nice change.
They have a great restaurant The Grange and Bar which was hopping. At first glance the menu looks very different and it is but the food was outstanding so need to leave the Hotel that night. Breakfast even had its own flair!
The next day we decided to go for a walk and explore a bit of Sacramento and we are very happy we did. The tree lined streets around the State Capitol were beautiful and we even made it to the Old Downtown for a wander. As always there are areas of Downtowns you don't want to go, so use your common sense and you will enjoy.
What we thought was going to be a quick stop off turned out to be a very lovely visit!
