“Sacramento Downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This facility is two blocks from the Amtrak station which also is an inter-modal station for the local light rail system. They have a restaurant, bar, and a convention center on the premises. A short walk to the North is the city historic district with numerous restaurants/bars and a rail museum. The rooms are as expected for and IHG property, my stay was for two nights.

I booked this hotel through Priceline, not sure exactly what to expect. The workers were all very pleasant and willing to provide ideas for sightseeing and restaurants. Our room was decorated with new furnishings and an updated bathroom. We heard little noise from surrounding rooms. Beds were very cozy. Location was a quick walk to the downtown shopping area and Old Town Sacramento district. We were flying out the next day, and getting to the airport from the hotel was a breeze. If we're back in the area, I will definately book this hotel again. Thanks for the great stay, Holiday Inn!

Had a reservation lost at another location and Priceline hooked us up with this last minute deal. A short family meeting with our daughter ended up being a wonderful evening spent eating wonderful food at the Brewery next door and then walking to Old Sacramento and enjoying a beautiful evening in October just before Halloween. This is the best location in Sacramento. Next to a mall and a large Macy's, a food court and theatre and of course Old Sacramento which has a life of its own at night. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Nice view from higher floor.

Clean, nice staff, easy off and on the I-5; on site cafe is nice and one of the best options for lunch as the down town is busy during the work day lunch hour with all the state offices near the Capitol. Let them park your car, for two bucks more it is well worth as self park is a public lot which is very close but if you return late at night it is worth letting them take cRe of you! Which, they do very well! The mall next door (so close!) has a nice Macy's but is in the process of a remodel starting soon which will include the new stadium for the Sacramento Kings. This hotel will be in prime location once that is complete. Will stay again.

This was my fourth time at this hotel and it was like all the other stays--this place is super clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I came in by train and the hotel is an easy walk from Amtrak. It's also an easy walk to the awesome California Railroad Museum.

It does get a ton of noise from the freeway but still, stay here and you'll have a good time.

I ate breakfast at the hotel and it was fine with a super enthusiastic staff. I'll be back!

Really great staff at this Holiday Inn. Warm and very helpful. The room was okay - nothing special but comfortable. Food was above average for a mid tier hotel. Very good breakfast. The biggest problem by far was the terribly slow wifi. We stayed for four nights and the entire time it was almost unusable. The LTE reception in the area was terrible so made keeping up with email/ work very difficult.

We stayed only one night. It is close to the river and you can walk along the promenade. It is a good bargain, certainly less money then some of the other hotels close by. Although they have free wi fi it did not work for us on the 10th floor. The beds were comfortable, The room was a little noisy if people were talking in the hallway. Although we felt the room was clean, there were some items the previous guests had left in the bathroom still there. The valet service was wonderful, prompt and friendly. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you need wi fi ask what rooms have the best service
