I have stayed at this hotel twice---usually before or after running or triathlon events in the Sacramento area. For the price, the hotel is quite nice. The lobby is nice and open and the hotel rooms are decorated well. We usually walk to dinner which is a bit of a hike to midtown, but on a nice summer night can be a pleasant walk. For the price and downtown location, I definitely recommend this hotel. We did do the breakfast once, which was your typical hotel blah breakfast. The bar is a nice place to have a pre0dinner cocktail.
