The hotel maintains a mid-century feel. It is dark and more on the romantic side. Location is great, hotel rooms are great, bathrooms are immaculate! From valet to suite, everyone was friendly and (super) professional. The restaurant/ bar in the hotel overlooks the street and is great for enjoying a nice glass of wine while people watching.A higher room will ensure you enjoy the sunrise over Sacremento and perhpas distance you from the noise from adjacent club (on weekends). The hotel is aware of the noise issue and has placed 'ear plugs' in the room for restful sleep. To be clear, this was not a nuisance to me at all, but can see that it may be for light sleepers. I would definitely return to the hotel.

Room Tip: Higher room, away from adjacent club and ballroom activity (depending on time of year)

The Citizen is a lovely hotel inside a historic Sacramento property. Its ideally located near the capital. Parking is valet and a bit trick since the entrance is on busy J street...but the attendants do a good job of keeping the cars (and guests) moving).

Check-in was fast and pleasant. The room was small but well appointed with a HUGE bathroom. My one window wasn't that big, but it looked out over a nice little downtown park. The beds were comfortable. Note: They have rooms with 1 King or 2 doubles. The doubles are just that (doubles not queens) so they might not be a good solution for those travelling with more than 2 people. Unless your people are tiny and wee.

Food at the Grange (onsite restaurant) was really good and I'd recommend staying for dinner.

Ok, there are a ton of rave reviews here about the Citizen so I'll try to come up with some other items that might interest readers.
So, I will start by saying all the raves are true. You will not find a hotel with friendlier staff or more comfortable rooms. Of course, in Sacramento, the bar is pretty low. Even the highest end hotels are frankly dumps in desperate need of renovation. The Citizen is light years beyond any of the others in my opinion.
First off, if you qualify, be aware the Citizen has a government rate. It's not always available, but if you are going to Sacramento on government business, as I do, it is an incredible deal.
Second, if you stay at the Citizen, be sure to visit their loyalty program site (called the Joy of Life club) and join. By doing so, you get free wifi during your stay and a "welcome indulgence" of your choice (some wine, bottled water, etc.). The wifi (like most high end hotels these days) will cost you otherwise.
Third, the staff is incredibly accomodating. Don't hesitate to ask if you need/want something. On my last stay, I asked if they could find me some space in the hotel where I could practice my violin without disturbing other guests. They gave me an unused conference room and were incredibly nice about the whole thing. On previous visits, if I've had any sort of problem, they immediately fixed it, or if it was going to take a while to fix, upgraded me.
I recommend the hotel without hesitation. They are by far the best there is in Sac,

Room Tip: I have yet to find a room I didn't like. Every room is unique (it's kind of a quirky building), and I get a bit of a thrill just seeing what the room is going to be like. The standard rooms can be a bit tight so if the price is right, it can pay to go for the next level up.

This is a gem of a hotel located right in the heart of San Francisco. I found it online and it exceeded all my expectations. The decor of the hotel is very stylish, combining features of it's old character with updated touches. The rooms have lovely (what look like original) political cartoons, wonderful mattresses and great amenities in the bath. Room service food was great and we dined at the restaurant attached to the hotel, which was fabulous. A great find, all around.

When you travel for a living, you get sick of the usual faceless Hyatts, Marriotts, and Hiltons. They're all forgettable. The really special experience comes from the one-of-a-kind restored grand dames like Sacramento's Citizen Hotel. The location is excellent -- smack dab downtown, about a block from the state Capitol. It's a beautifully restored property that used to be the city's most prestigious professional office building. I'm a political junkie, so I loved that the art on the walls consisted of old political cartoons from the Sacramento Bee, and photographs of memorable moments in local history. It's a property with a terrific, quirky sense of humor. It's FUN.

The service, from the valet to the front desk to the staff at the Grange Restaurant, is close to impeccable. Best of all, the prices are insanely reasonable. Why would anyone stay anywhere else? I'm returning to Sacramento this week, and I'm heading to 926 J Street.
