The service was great, the parking required either a long walk or valet which worried me. The entire hotel as well as the room had so much character with such a story to tell behind it. The breakfast at the restaurant was the best omelet I have ever had in my life!!! The room was very clean and classy with...

I loved my stay at the Citizen and would recommend this place to lay your head if you're traveling to the state Capitol. From the moment you arrive, everyone from the valets to the various staff walking around greet you with a warm hello. I was in some beat up travel clothes, so I thought I was gonna get the...

The hotel is in an excellent location downtown. Easy walking distance to multiple local attractions, restaurants and bars. The architecture of the building and the interior design of the hotel and its rooms are excellent. A unique, historic and beautiful hotel in Sacramento that is reminiscent ot excellent hotels in larger, international metropolises. Room service is very good and they...

Had a great stay at the Citizen. Perfect location for downtown making everything walkable. The staff was first rate and everyone was super friendly. The rooms were clean and was very quiet. The Grange was an extra treat! Make sure you dine there as well.

This hotel is situated in downtown Sacramento. It was easy to find and staff was very helpful. This is a beautiful boutique hotel. in the lobby, think dark wood and velvet upholstered furniture. While the fixtures were modern, including a flat screen tv, the decor of the room was very traditional. Since prior reviews said place could be noisy, we...

Our first trip to Sacramento and the hotel was great. Staff exceptionally friendly, offering good advice to make our stay as best as possible. We opted to upgrade to a suite as we were 2 adults and a 16 year old. Space wise was a bit tight, however still worth the extra dollars. Area is close by everything. Shame the...

Great stay at the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento. This hotel is in a historic building within walking distance of the Capitol and City Hall. While the hotel itself is modern the decor is done in a traditional federal style with humorous nods to the quirks of politics. The staff was all exceptionally welcoming and attentive. The room was lovely with...

Our flydrive holiday included 3 nights at this hotel. We were fortunate to be upgraded to the 14th floor courtesy of a very helpful and professional Joe - Thanks again Joe!! for anyone thinking of upgrading i would definitely recommend this floor ideally room 1405. The hotel is located in a nice spot not too far from Old Sacramento and...

This was my first time at The Citizen Hotel. The service, food ordered, amenities and all else was wonderful. They even provided a free bottle of wine for joining Joie de Vivre hotels as a member.
