Reminds me or somewhere Frank Underwood would stay. The hotel is nice. Has tons of political decor, if that doesn't bother you. I thought it was cool. Not bias, just a bunch of both parties. From cartoon illustrations to ads. Rooms are a lil small but comfy. Overall nice looking with a modern but Washington DC historic style to it.... More

Classy old hotel. Room size smaller but adequate. Nice bar/restaurant on first floor. Ear plugs and cotton provided in rooms were more than a subtle notice of things to come. Upscale nightclub across the street gets really rocking as the night goes on. Not loud enough to keep me awake but it could be problematic for light sleepers.

We booked a wedding party into the Citizen this weekend and wanted very much to give it a top review. The hotel is lovely and centrally located near State Capital, as well as to our wedding venue. The rooms are small but spotless and well-appointed. Staff was courteous and helpful. Big problem though: rooms are really noisy (earplugs provided)! Many... More

Thank you for the comments. I am happy that the room was in great condition and that the staff was courteous and helpful! We understand that noise at times can be an issue as we are both a busy hotel and located in the heart of downtown. There is certainly a lot of activity going on with the Golden One... More

Rooms were clean and well appointed. 2 misses. 1. When we tried to check in early at 11 am. We were told we had to wait until 3 pm and of course at 3 the lobby was crushed. While I understand that no rooms would be ready why couldn't they take our info and assign a room later. That would... More

I had a great one night stay here!!!! The place is a historic office building that opened in 1924, renovated in the 1950's and became a hotel in 2008. Being someone who's into architecture and old buildings, especially hotels and office buildings, this place was AWESOME. They had cool old staircases, the elevators system is a Vintage Westinghouse Selectomatic Elevator... More

We stayed one night for a concert. We chose this hotel because of the proximity - 3-4 blocks. This is an old building and our room was quite small. But it wasn't expensive - much less than the price listed here. The restaurant was quite good. However they have difficulty delivering the food hot. We'd stay here again for a... More

It might not look like much on the outside, but this hotel is upscale on the inside. I recommend checking out the 2nd floor of the Lobby, it looks like an old congress library with a bar! The hotel is also within walking distance from all the great restaurants and lounges you would expect from downtown Sacramento. I enjoyed my... More

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...
