I spent several nights here on business recently and found it to be a very nice hotel with a good staff. The rooms are typical Holiday Inn Express rooms and are clean and comfortable. The location is good and you can walk to the convention center and several restaurants. I walked to and from the hotel at night and did not find the surrounding area bad at all. There's free parking, which is another plus. The breakfast was your typically good HI Express breakfast. We had a package shipped ahead of time to the hotel and it was ready for us upon check-in, a feat which is often ignored by hotels.
Two minor issues. There is free wifi, which is great, but it's so slow in the rooms as to be useless. We also needed to find a nearby shipping store, like UPS or FedEx, so we asked the front desk for advice. They replied that it was "something we get asked all the time" but they didn't know the answer. I got online in the lobby and found there's a FedEx store two blocks away. If you get asked a lot, you should find out the answer, especially for a convention center hotel.
The hotel is a great value for a convention center hotel and a fine example of the chain. I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Sacramento.
