*For folks who prefer to get a bit of exercise before and after sitting in meetings all day.
I added the qualifier because some may equate "great location" with being closest to the Convention Center; there are at least two hotels that are within "spitting distance" of Convention Center. This hotel is approximately a 7-10 minute walk to the front door of the Convention Center. The staff and service were excellent. A buffet breakfast is included in the price of the room. (I don't know whether eggs can be cooked to order. I was always running late and preferred to use the buffet service.) I have stayed at two or three other Residence Inns and found the service in Sacramento to be the best. The hotel also offered a limited room service menu for dinner. There is no formal restaurant or coffee shop on the premises. There are two large hotels with restaurants within walking distance, and I walked by several small places on my way to and from a CVS drugstore.
The room was very clean and included a kitchenette. The lighting was adequate; wifi and high-speed internet service were free. (For those who don't travel with computer (ipad), the computers in the business area offer unlimited free internet access.) My room was quiet. There is an excercise room on site. It looked to be reasonably well-equipped, but I didn't have time to look closely.
The rate using my AAA membership discount was virtually the same as the convention rate being offered for my organization. [But, the convention hotels were full-service (i.e. had restaurant/coffee shop, which was not included in room rate of course), and they were across the street from the convention center.]
If one is looking for luxury, one should look elsewhere. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend highly.
