As a frequent traveler to Sacramento, I have had the good fortune to stay at a few nice properties. However, all of my usual haunts were unavailable at an acceptable rate so I booked the Larkspur for a one night stay. I had passed it on a few occasions and knew that is was located in a quiet area close to the Howe/Arden Way bustle and about five miles from downtown. I prefer suite hotels so I thought I would give it a try especially since it is rated #1 on Trip Advisor.
Check in was a breeze; Faye at the front desk was very sweet. My room on the third floor was booked as a double suite so I wasn't sure what to expect. The suite was similar to a Residence Inn with the exception that instead of a couch in the living room there was a queen bed similar to the one in the enclosed bedroom. So for a family or two individuals wanting their own beds but in separate rooms this is quite perfect without the dread of the pullout sofa. Definitely a plus!
The suite also had a kitchen area with full refrigerator, microwave and sink. Bathroom was good size and very clean.
Two downsides of note. As other reviewers have noted, the walls are fairly thin. I clearly heard individuals walking around above me and muted conversations in the room next door.
Second, as a business traveler one of the first things I do when I wake up is turn on CNBC and check the stock market. I know that many of my colleagues do the same. While the channel selections include four Showtime Channels, I would trade them all for CNBC.
Breakfast was adequate; nothing special; nothing hot. Instant oatmeal, cereal, breads and rather good waffles that you placed in the toaster. Coffee was in small take away cups only; some mugs would be nice.
Free internet and free parking also definitely pluses.
In the future, I would probably stay here again, but only if my preferred properties (see other reviews) were unavailable.
