Nice hotel in Downtown Sacramento. Lots of quaint touches regarding politics. Vintage political cartoons everywhere plus hysterical political quotes in the elevators. Comfy smallish room, but good enough. Clean. No room in bathroom to put toiletries, tho. I like terry robe provided. Staff helpful. Restaurant good for breakfast but a bit pricy. A cup of coffee was $5. My only... More

Stayed the night was was pleased. Beds were great and place was quiet. Check in took 2 minutes and we were in the elevator. The bathroom was huge and clean. The hotel was in a great location and could walk to anything in mid town. I felt it was under priced for what you got.

I wish I could write a better review of this hotel because some of the staff were so helpful an friendly. Why the three stars, let's start with the noise I was in room 1101 paid extra for a suite that was located directly above the ballroom that they had events in on two of the nights of our stay...

There is a concierge at the front and that is nice. Also the whole whole first floor is very nicely decorated. This is right across the street from a park and there are a number of homeless people so I would agree it's not the safest area. Parking is super expensive

Spent one night at The Citizen and we were very pleased. Charming, old world feel with modern updates made for a pleasurable stay. The restaurant was fine fine dining and delicious. We will definitely stay at the Citizen the next time we pass through Sacramento.

Nice hotel, updated smaller rooms. We were on the 5th floor and thank goodness the room amenities included ear plugs. Right outside the window a night club disco with open type windows...unsavory people and noise, lots of noise. The ear plugs worked great. We booked through Amtrak Orbitz and discovered we paid about 30% more than we should have. Walking... More

I was a guest at The Citizen Hotel, Sacramento on August 11. In the middle of the night, a man was allowed to roam the hotel and tried to get me out of my room by yelling fire/fire drill - claiming he was staff. Luckily, as it was in the middle of the night, I checked the peephole and noticed... More

This was our 2nd stay, both times for a group event off site. Location is convenient but definitely has some late night unsavory types walking around so I would not recommend walking back unless with a group. Hotel is elegant & traditional in it's "political theme" decor. Rooms I have seen were spacious, beds comfortable, & all were clean. Bar... More

From the minute I drove up, I was extremely impressed by all of the staff I interacted with. So very helpful especially the concierge, helped me find parking, "locals only" BBQ restaurant. Hotel restaurant is excellent. Can't say enough good things. Love the political cartoons in the room, definitely a welcome change to the "business hotel" boredom. This will be... More

This is not the type of room you need after a rough day of airplane travel. I was given this room on the 13th floor that only has a tiny window, just like being in a prison cell. I thought I booked a luxury hotel. Marriott missed the concept of a hotel room and considers this luxury? To add to... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. I apologize that the room you were assigned on the 13th floor was not to your liking. As the original building was constructed in 1925, we were fortunate enough to keep some of the original architectural design in portions of the hotel during the completed renovation in 2008. The...
