My husband and I came for two nights and stayed in their Executive Suite which is just beautiful. I love having a mini kitchen and refrigerator esp with a toddler on board. The service is fantastic especially Krista every accomodating. The air conditioner units are loud but I think it is because it is an older hotel. The furnishings are very modern and everything was very clean. I used the guest pass at the local club/pool which was nice. I ate all my meals here and breakfast was so-so but dinner and lunch were both very good, especially my Salmon dinner. It was great being so close to downtown and being able to walk to some neat little shops. It is also a short drive to the park which was nice for our son. Overall, a great stay and definitely worth every penny.

I went to school in Chico and recently had to go back for an engagement party. My first and only choice for a hotel was The Diamond. It is by far the best hotel in Chico. Great location, great resturant and bar and amazing rooms! We arrived very early and the staff checked us in and gave us a room right away so we could get ready for the party. I was 110% satisfied with our latest stay!

Stayed here for my birthday. Did not know this hotel was such a loca lgem. My wife took me to the restaurant at the hotel Johnnys and then surprised me wit ha hotel stay there. They upgraded us for free to a king jr suite i think. The rooms were very well done and fresh. The hotel was professional and the staff seemed very interested in making our stay pleasant. Got a free appetizer and breakfast the next morning with our stay. The omlettes were great. My only complaint is we had a room on the 3rd floor right above the street and the bar. There were drunk loud people out below our window.

It's always a treat for our group to stay at the Hotel Diamond. The complimentary slippers are a hit. Hotel Diamond is centrally located in downtown Chico and close to the university, which provides for great shopping, eating, and entertainment. Our business group is always treated by friendly and accommodating staff.

I would strongly recommend this hotel to other businesses looking for nice, comfortable night of sleep.

The Hotel Diamond is a beautifully resored hotel, with an ideal downtown location. Really, it is the best hotel in Chico. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
-Great location with free parking. You can walk around downtown, and it is only a couple of blocks from CSU Chico.
-Hotel is clean, staff is very professional, and although the rooms are a little small, the high ceilings (10, maybe 12 feet high) give the room a larger feeling. Also the beds are soooo comfortable! More comfortable than my own bed!
-Free $10 coupon for breakfast downstairs at Johnnies Restaurant. Not the best food ever, but certainly better than your standard continental breakfast.

Cons:
-$$$...the hotel is a little overpriced. Our room was $169 for one night. Not entirely worth the cost.
-The biggest problem of all. The walls are VERY thin. We could hear people in the halls at night. If you stay here, be sure to ask for a room away from the stairs or the elevator. We could hear the sounds of our neighbors talking and could hear their television as though it were in our own room. Also, we awoke to the sounds of our neighbors...ahem, getting intimate. Totally awkward.

Overall, despite the few flaws, this is the best hotel to stay at in Chico.

This is a great place to stay while visiting Chico. It's close to all the things I love: downtown, the Bookstore, Pete's, awesome salads at Pluto's, Fleet Feet, and Bidwell Park.

The staff was very friendly. My room was quiet & very beautiful. The bed was extremely comfortable. I will stay again. Thank you Hotel Diamond!
