Nice "vintage" hotel. The restaurant is average, the front desk and valet are phenomenal, and the bar, when slow is great (with terrible service when they get marginally busy) with one or two notable exceptions (Pat and Amy)...Rooms are very comfortable with wonderfully maintained pillows (my pet peeve).

I had been on the job 6 days and the firm's principles were looking to me to be responsible for planning a flawless event for very important clients. I received 3 bids for the event. The Citizen Hotel, hands down, was by far the best deal, the most impressive venue, easiest to find for our out of town clients and... More

I was in town to teach a seminar. The sponsor had booked me into a nearby motel for the night. Needless to say, I walked into that motel and walked right back out. I quickly called The Citizen and fortunately, they had a room. I love this place. The rooms are small but immaculate and well appointed. I'm all about... More

Checked in smoothly, great Valet and bell service. Received a room upgrade. Informed us of a wedding party that night and moved us to a quiet room. Loved the lobby and history of the building. It was close enough to walk to many attractions or a short Uber to the nightlife. I had no negative comments for the entire stay.... More

Stayed here for our third time. Always enjoy our stay. The rooms are stylish and fresh. The political theme is amusing and consistent. And the restaurant is excellent - especially the cocktails. This is our favorite hotel to stay in in Sacramento. Only word of caution - which the hotel staff the bring to your attention - is that lower... More

Booked my room on May 19, 2016 for a July 12-14, 2016 stay as part of a room block for a business meeting at the same hotel. Flew in from DC only to arrive at the hotel to be told that they were oversold and that they moved me to another property 20 minutes away. No manager on duty to... More

The Citizen is part of Marriott's autograph collection, which means that the property is a historic building that has been renovated into a a hotel. The Citizen was formerly a California Newspaper and the halls of the hotel are filled with historic photographs from the newspaper. The rooms have political cartoons. My room had a cartoon about Franklin Roosevelt pursuing... More

Hotel was downtown, parking is expensive, rooms were nice. Good coffee maker, nice shower. View of city hall. The neighborhood is quiet after business hours. This is more of a business hotel than a tourist hotel, but the building is a beautifully redone old 1920s office biulding.

Our room was beautiful, with fabrics and wood framing that was lovely. The size was good and very comfortable. No details were missing from the up-to-date bathroom and the comfortable mattress. The staff at dinner and breakfast were unusually friendly. They were willing to say a bit about Sacramento, which we had never visited before. The food was good at... More

This is a very well appointed boutique hotel with charming decor and atmosphere, a friendly professional staff, and a good restaurant. Bathroom was very nice, bed very comfortable. Great location -- only two blocks from the State Capitol, which is definitely worth a visit. Grange, the restaurant in the hotel has excellent food, service, and atmosphere. I definitely recommend the... More
