We flew into Sacramento on our way to a vacation in Yosemite. We wanted to visit with a friend in Sac and got a great deal on 3 nights (over the Labor Day holiday) at The Citizen. What a treat! It has a great downtown location, and the amenities are plush and lush. It was quiet, comfortable and has one of the best restaurants in Sacramento - and pretty damn good for anywhere.
The room was not large, but the bed and linens were top notch. And it was QUIET!!! The shower was hot and had lots of pressure - and good, comfy towels and robes. The only downside was the charge for wi-fi. Interesting that cheap hotels always seem to have free wi-fi - it's the expensive ones (or ones that cater to business travelers on expense accounts) that always charge.
The restaurant is really top rate - and we are serious foodies. The wine list is excellent and the staff all seem to know their stuff. They quietly attend to your needs before you even know you need them!
