The Residence Inn Sacramento Airport Natomas hotel was just a weekend getaway for us, but as a long-time business traveler, I could see the value of this property for others as well.
First, the location. The property is nicely situated in Sacramento; centered as much as Sacramento offers a center to most of the business and tourist attractions of the area. It offers airport shuttle service, and is close to both the I-5 and I-80 freeways for easy access. In spite of the placement, the hotel seems especially well insulated from traffic noise.
Amenities include the traditional Residence Inn long-term stay extras such as free daily breakfast buffet (the eggs are of the reconstituted variety, but the fresh fruit and variety of breads are nice), evening receptions (mon-thu) with complimentary beer and wine, and large guest rooms with full kitchens. Fireplaces (compressed log-burning) are also a pleasant option available upon request.
The property also sports some well-maintained common areas in addition to the standard "guesthouse" lobby/dining facility: a pool, barbecue patio and a tennis court; although the latter seemed too wedged in to allow for any serious gaming.
The staff was functional and friendly enough without being overly impressive.
Finally, the hotel is situated on the backside of a mini-mall with easy access to a number of fast-food options such as Carl's Jr., Starbucks, Jamba Juice, etc. There are extensive shopping/dining/entertainment opportunities nearby Natomas Marketplace.
