This is the first time we have stayed downtown Sacramento for the CIM. Although we paid more per room and for parking at this site, vs. staying at the Residence Inn in Roseville, we hoped being closer to the finish of the race would make up for the difference in cost.
Check in was quick and friendly. Our suite was very nice. The complimentary breakfast had good variety of choices and the dining area was spacious and warm.
However, we have two complaints that might interest future marathoners planning on staying downtown. One, was having to pay $25 for a later check out than 11:00 a.m. The second was having the hotel lock their front doors during the marathon. Since we were staying at this facility for the race, the runners, who had finished the race, having to walk from door to door to door to try and find one that was open, was an unnecessary frustration. Not a very welcoming feeling for the participants. I would definitely encourage them to change these 2 policys for the runners.More
