“Cute old mansion close Capitol”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

This is a neat old mansion converted into a pretty nice hotel. My room was gigantic and great, with a 4 poster canopy bed, huge showers and jacuzzi tub. The meeting facilities are excellent as well. Only a couple blocks from the capitol and the convention center.

H street is lined with old Victorians and when we pulled up in front of the Sterling we were all smiles...Yes! curb appeal? you betcha! we walked up the steps to the grand entry door and were greeted by a super friendly and personable young man you processed our reservation with speed and a smile! you know, he was genuinely glad to have us there! do you ever get the feeling when you check in that you are an inconvenience to some folks? not this place, we received a first class greeting all the way(upon check out by a different clerk as well) our room (201) was huge with a beautiful clean bed tucked into a three window nook overlooking H street. our bathroom was gorgeous, tiled with a jet tub perfect for two, amazing! the bed was more than comfortable, the hotel gorgeous! I have seen reviews about parking here but there is a garage less than a block away and we had no problem parking on the street in front of the hotel! The Sterling is one block from any kind of cuisine imaginable, the neighborhood is quiet and safe. We usually select accomodations that have character and the Sterling did not disappoint.The Hotel is furnished to the Victorian period, detailed, clean, clean, clean and you will love it when you see it. I am aware of where I am on this planet and what I have done in my 55 years on this earth and this hotel was an enjoyable experience. we will stay here again and again and this is most certainly a jewel. We availed ourselves to a couples massage next door at "Thai massage" and had Sushi at the "Kru" on 26th and J (awesome) if you are looking for the perfect weekend get-a-way with your special lady guys this is the place to do it if your in Sac. Thank you Sterling we were more than takin care of!

The Sterling is charming. My room was huge and quiet. Location is perfect, close to the Capital and the big hotels. Easy walk to the old city and riverfront.

Parking was challenging. You need to self-park in a garage and walk to the hotel, which is slightly uncomfortable in Sacramento.

Staff is friendly and helpful.

I wish every business city had a similar choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite and book ahead for a good rate.

This hotel is small - 16 rooms - all different and very cool! The service was great and my experience was pretty wonderful. My clients had booked the hotel and I was so happy to be somewhere with character instead of a chain hotel. The room was gorgeous with a comfy bed, free wifi, views of the neighborhood and some beautiful trees in the midst of changing colors. Happily with a wedding reception taking place on the first floor, I couldn't hear the celebration in my room on the 3rd floor.

The front desk staff were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions. There were quite a few to choose from just a short walk away. Did not get a chance to try out the gourmet restaurant downstairs as it was closed from 2pm Sunday and Monday. The continental breakfast was just that and the coffee was nice and fresh.

If you want something that's boutique lovely, in midtown Sacramento, stay here. Oh - and if you are attending something at the Convention Center, it's a 2 block walk.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different. I loved being on the 3rd floor.

The Sterling Hotel is in a great location, surrounded by beautiful historic homes. Our room was spacious and well decorated. Very little attention was paid to the continental breakfast of unhealthy, packaged foods. Parking became a problem as the night clerk had told us that parking on the street was free on Sunday, but if we left the car there after 8:00 AM on Monday,, we'd have to plug the meter. So we made a point of paying the meter before breakfast so that we could linger over (what we thought would be) a nice breakfast. As we were eating breakfast, the morning desk clerk (manager) came and told us that our car would be towed away because the street sweeper comes around on Monday. Unhappily, we moved the car, and the clerk was very rude about the lack of communication regarding parking. A lesson learned about checking parking rules before spending the night.

Room Tip: If you're a senior or physically challenged, you may want to inquire about the tub/shower in you...

I attended a conference in Sacramento, and usually choose the Citizen Hotel downtown for our accommodations. This time, we wanted something a little different than the big hotel. We chose the Sterling hotel, which is located a couple of blocks from the Citizen, in a fantastic downtown location. The hotel is actually an old, historic, Victorian house. There are about 10-15 rooms in the 3 story house, each one different. We chose a queen bed room on the second floor, room 202, although we were told we could choose another if we wished. I was very impressed with the size of the room, and the tall ceilings with beautiful crown molding. The bathroom was very spacious with a double jacuzzi tub, and the living area included a full desk, free wi-fi, and walk in closet. The bed was very cozy and comfortable, and the views out the three large windows surrounding our bed was very relaxing. The windows opened, albeit, are quite heavy and historic, and had to be held open with a stick provided by the front desk:) We slept with the windows wide open to catch the wonderful breeze coming through the room. In back of the bed was a large picture window that looked out on to a fully established, beautiful pink blooming plumb tree. Our room also looked down onto the outside garden seating at the gourmet restaurant at the hotel, which is located off the basement. Although we were in the center of town, the low level of street noise was not bothersome, and quite expected. The hotel is very old, and the room could use a bit of refurbishing, i.e., definitely the jacuzzi tub fixtures, and the carpet in the room could use a scrub. However, the comfort of the room and common areas was that of an old house, "grandma's" house if you will, and the normal accouterments you might expect from a modern hotel were easily forgotten. The structural inconsistencies just added to the wonderful character. Included were a simple continental breakfast with hot coffee and juice. Front desk service by all the staff was fantastic. We will definitely be back to try another room!

Room Tip: The house is located in the middle of the town, so I would guess the noise level is the same in any...

I was on a business trip in Sacramento and decided to try out this hotel instead on staying in one of the hotel chain.The hotel is located in nice quiet neighborhood, a few blocks from the conventional center and the Capitol. There are less than 20 rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is complimentary continental breakfast in the morning. The room is spacious and clean.

The only complaint is the parking of off street. It is easy to find parking right outside the hotel but you have to feed the meter between 8am and 6pm except Sunday. The staff is happy to provide quarters for the meter. You can also park the car in a parking lot a block away with no in-and-out privilege. Hence the 4 stars, instead of 5.

I would stay here again if I visit Sacramento again.
