While I'm a point gathering, chain hotel-staying kinda guy, The Citizen is a great option/alternative in Sacramento. This is my first stay at a Joie de Vivre hotel, and I was pleased.
The hotel is right downtown and you can walk everywhere! We took Amtrak from San Francisco, walked to the hotel, and walked everywhere all weekend. Drive here if you need, but you can park...and walk to fun, food, adventures, City Government, State Government.
Our corner room (#1122) was comfortable (see pics). Great bedding. Bathroom was great. Loved the shower...who doesn't love a great shower?
Cool things -
1) Apple TV box in the room. In addition to TV, you can logon and watch your Netflix and other online programming. Pretty cool
2) Shower...did I mention that?
Slight bummers -
1) Thermostat didn't seem to work. We tried and tried...and heat wouldn't come on.
2) Noise - there is a "party" space on the 7th floor where they have wedding receptions, etc. and bands/DJ's play until 11pm. For every person we (over)heard checking in, they said to each person, "there will be noise tonight and tomorrow night..." - so be aware of that. They provide earplugs in the room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
