Reviewed August 2, 2013

We live in Chico and once in a while enjoy staying in a suite at the Hotel Diamond as a special treat. It's like being on vacation without having to go on vacation. The hotel is in the heart of downtown Chico surrounded by a number of fantastic restaurants & shopping. The beautiful fountains in the city plaza are across the street and the park is within walking distance. We will continue to do this every chance we get!

Room Tip: Suites 402 & 411 are like luxury apartments...very comfortable and spacious with a balcony.

This is a great spot right downtown near everything! The staff was awesome and we were compted a cocktail at arrival and got $10.00 each off our breakfast. The room was perfect for the short time we were there (Just overnight) Great beds, very quite and the towels were fantastac.
For family's with small kids, mabe not the best choice due to no pool, but for anyone else, this is the place to stay in Chico!

On a recent road trip mu husband and I ran onto a little oasis in the California Rice Country. The rooms were spacious, beds were inviting, impeccable service, great location, and supper clean. We also had dinner in the adjacent restaurant nice bar scene and good food. Well worth a stop. Thursday nights during the summer the town fills the downtown for a farmer's market festival. A real treat!

Very much enjoyed my stay at the Diamond. Rooms are finished to a very high quality and are cleaned to a high standard. However - for my stay the bar was closed and it did not function as a hotel. There really are no other amenities. The location is very good - in downtown Chico. (Amongst speciality shops, bars and restaurants ) . Larger stores, pharmacy, supermarket us a drive out of town

Stayed at the Diamond Hotel for 1 night in early July, attending my daughters Freshman orientation at Chico State. Booked a double Queen room, was $155/nt. That price is high for Chico, but it's a higher quality hotel than most in the Chico area, and in the best location. The hotel is right in the heart of Downtown Chico, but only a few short blocks from the Chico State campus. The closest hotel to Chico State, with lots of restaurants, ATM's, and shopping all around it. Parking is free in a covered parking garage right next to the hotel, with the permit the hotel provides you at check-in. Complimentary Breakfast at the restaurant on the first floor is included. Because we had to leave early for Orientation, instead we chose to have a continental breakfast delivered to our room (again, free), and it was plenty of food, and very nice (Fresh fruit, danishes, cereal, etc.). The room was not huge, but big enough. The beds were very comfortable, and linens very clean. AC worked wonderfully (it was 110 outside!), and lots of TV channels. Everything was clean, and everything worked. Wireless internet is free, and worked well. The front desk folks were very friendly and on top of things. The room seemed very quiet(room 203), but I don't think the hotel was fully booked the day we were there, so hard to judge. I will definitely be looking to stay her again as first choice whenever we come to visit. When you arrive, there are a couple spaces right in front of the hotel for check-in/loading, don't park in the garage until you get a parking permit. There is no gym or pool at the hotel, but they do have passes for a commercial gym nearby.

Amazing staff and clean rooms. We really enjoyed our stay and will likely return on our next trip to visit family in Chico. Breakfast is complimentary and menu is modern and wait staff is attentive. The elevator did get stuck but issue was quickly resolved. I recommend this property for families and couples.

Room Tip: We liked the second floor because we could take the stairs.

This is a lovely refurbished old hotel right in the heart of downtown old Chico. It is walking distance to all the great restaurants, shops, lounges and dance clubs and has a friendly accomodating staff. The room includes a $10.00 voucher for breakfast in their comfortable redtaurant. I had the best eggs benedict I've ever eaten. Go to the Diamond and hang out with the Chico college kids downtown.
