The Citizen is not only my favorite hotel in Sacramento, it's one of my favorites anywhere. The rooms are charming, cozy and peaceful, and the staff is absolutely top notch. Every meal I've had at Grange has been exceptional. I cannot recommend the Citizen highly enough and am looking forward to my next stay!

Very nice hotel. Great staff. Great, well-appointed room. We highly recommend it. This is a classy, old-school hotel. We decided to stay here so we wouldn't have to drive home after a special party downtown.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. We were given a 14th floor room and bar credit as it was my husbands birthday which was much appreciated and a nice gesture. Hotel is beautiful inside and out. Rooms our well equipped and perfect in size for us but I can see why some might say they are small by US... More

I tend to travel a lot and so I'm always searching for quaint new, hip and out of the norm hotels. This place by far exceeds my expectations. The staff is one of the friendliest and most professional I've encountered during my travels. They train and teach them very well in regards of customer service! The interior had me gawking....

I love this hotel. The first time here I had forgotten my charger. The staff bent over backwards to help me. Finally, a manager leant me his personal charger. The second time here, we brought out Schnauzer because they are pet friendly. They treated us fabulously NO stinky room "reserved" for pet owners. We had a great room with a... More

Found this great hotel for a 2-nite layover for a business trip - super nice hotel with some great styling, cool designs and cozy rooms. Great bar and restaurant area with super nice service, great cocktails and good food. Highly recommendable hotel. If ever to visit Sacramento again this is my hotel.......

Love this hotel. I have stayed here twice, once for business and once for pleasure. This past weekend was amazing. Joe at the front desk was extremely helpful and the bartenders were spot on. Super location close to great restaurants and very easy to navigate to. Accomodations are typical of a historic hotel. Smaller rooms but with charm.

Very cool feel and great service. There is a good bar/restaurant, Grange, in the hotel. This place is a boutique with some serious style! The only minor downside is that the rooms are on the smallish side. We would definitely stay here again.

Having spent many years traveling to Sacramento on business I had always hoped an outstanding hotel would open near the capitol. I had high hopes when the Hyatt first opened (and it was good in the beginning), I had cautious hopes when the Sheraton first opened (they started out better than I imagined but eventually slid into typical Sheraton mediocrity)....

The Citizen Hotel's unique combination of historic charm and sleek modern amenities brings a new kind of luxury to downtown Sacramento. Treat yourself to unexpected elegance. No two rooms are exactly alike, so you'll get a different perspective of downtown Sacramento each time you visit us. On the historic 13th floor, for example, you'll find gorgeous tile mosaics in the large bathrooms. ... more   less
