Having previously lived in Sacramento, I had my doubts about this hotel, but the one I wanted was full and the previous reviews here were ok so, I took a chance. I stayed 4 days. I was very impressed at the renovation the entire area has undergone. The hotel has also been beautifully renovated and was extremely clean as well. The continental breakfast left something to be desired with few protein sources. However, there is a new Denny's opening soon nearby, two nice lunch or dinner restaurants within walking distance and also a Mc Donalds's soon to be open next door. This location is wonderful for those who want to visit Discovery Park ( where the Sacramento and American Rivers converge), Old Sacramento, or the beautiful tree city of Sacramento, itself. All are within 5 minutes of the hotel. I managed to spend about 15% less than my 1st choice as well.
