Steps from the mall. Proximinty to Capitol is two blocks. Two excellent hotels. The Hyatt and the Sheraton are great. Great farm to fork restaurants all around. Nice walk down the mall to old Sacramento. Golden one arena 5 blocks away

Recently spent a few days for a Kenneth Copeland Ministries convention. Location was great with several restaurants within walking distance. Staff was friendly and professional and location close to a beautiful park. Restrooms were attended to frequently and seating was comfortable.

Great location, room temperature was comfortable and surprisingly pleased with conference food. Clean restrooms, and felt safe in the area even with visible view of many homeless people surrounding the area.

The Sacramento convention center is clearly un the town center, and very easy to go out for dinner and other activities. Large rooms, good signalization, nice organisation and clean restrooms.

Very sad that such a nice place is overshadowed by homeless and the smell of urine all around the center. Definitely a serious decision breaker, yes, that bad and sad... Consider another location if at all possible....
