In town for a work related training. Room is small ( fine for myslef would be small for a couple) but stylish and restaurant was good and inviting. Check in was friendly and attentive. I was able to park in public lot just down the street for free (skipped $28 valet parking fee!). Central good location.

Nice charming hotel. An old building that has been really nicely renovated. Modern with lots of reminders that the building is old and charming. Everything about the room was great except I had a lot of noise from road (even on the 6th floor) - there was a club or event the night I stayed and there was lots of... More

We were just staying at this hotel for the night after a vacation at Lake Tahoe in oder to catch a plane in the morning and not really expecting much. But, it turned out to be a ton of fun! The hotel is historical and all of the political memorabilia, etc... was great! I loved the quotes on the walls... More

I have arrived very late around 10:30pm, obversely the lady checked me in is also tired so did not ask me how I would choose my welcome gift as a platinum member and giving the wrong information about breakfast time. I went to room 1101, they told me it is a junior suite, but when I saw it, it is... More

My husband and I booked an overnight stay here while visiting friends living in the area. It looked beautiful and unique online, and did not disappoint upon check-in. The building has so much character, and the lobby setting is a law library. The bedroom and bath were also beautifully decorated, and followed the theme with framed political cartoons. Very nice...

A fun old hotel that you can still nab your Marriott points from . Not a fan of the restaurants expensive prices and one is kind of stuck away from any other options (although old sac isn't horribly far away). Rooms are nice but ventilation is a bit stuffy.

This is a unique revival of a classic hotel. I liked the use of the California Code volumes and various case reporters in the lobby as it gave it a comfortable libraryesque feeling to the space. The hotel restaurant was pretty good too; however, having just come from a stay in Napa it suffered in comparison to the excellent restaurants... More

Our check-in experience was not very good, we were not greeted properly, the person seemed distracted. She was not very friendly and did not give us a wifi code. When we called to ask for it, she said it was for the rewards customers. Excuse me, we have been rewards customers since 1994 and this room was booked through the... More
