I love staying at The Citizen, the rooms are quaint, comfortable, and take you back in time to a glamorous era. The front desk is stylish and historic. The restaurant is very good although they recently renovated which made it worse than it was before from a beauty prospective. I stay here time and time again and always love it....

I am a boutique style hotel fan and this hotel doesn't disappoint. My colleagues all stayed at the Hyatt and Sheraton, but I chose to go just a short walk from the convention center to stay at The Citizen. My room is a One Bedroom suite, which makes a work week more pleasant. There are big beautiful windows, unique furniture,...

The Citizen Hotel is very elegant, staff more than accomodating, just excellent front desk staff for my check on 3/4/17 @8:30pm. The room was amazing very nice view, quiet. Originally, I was confirmed for a king bed, was downgraded to 2 queen beds, they were comfortable. The bar ' Granger" is great! Drinks are amazing, food delicious, great venue, easy...

Great architecture and overall cool hotel to stay at. We arrived at 11AM and were able to get an early check in – process was quick and efficient. We stayed in room 626 – which initially I was disappointed being on the 6th floor but the check in attendant told me very quiet room with no street noise. She was...

The hotel appears to be in a historical building which is nice. It is about 2 blocks from the Capitol and most everyone staying there is there for that reason. The front desk waivered between helpful and outright ignoring me. I was only there for one night so not terribly fussed with the room. Valet Parking was quick and efficient...

Beautifully appointed to impart Sacramento's history. The rooms are compact and comfortable. Conveniently located near parks and the state capitol. Great for work visits or just to see the sites. Would definitely return.

We stayed at The Citizen Hotel for the Presidents weekend. I am a gold member of Marriott and we booked a Jr suite for four nights. We checked in late @9 on Friday night. Our room was located on the fourth floor. At about 11 PM, the night club across the street got into full activity. The strobe lights going,...

The lobby and room decor is so cool. The lobby feels luxe and every staff member I encountered was very pleasant. I stayed here two separate times in the past two months - I had a very good first stay, and a less satisfactory second stay. In January, I stayed in a room with 1 king bed. It had a...

The Citizen is undoubtedly the finest hotel in downtown Sacramento. And if you have not been to downtown Sacto in a while, take my advice, don't go unless you have to. It has a big homeless problem. The primary retail businesses are bail bonds and pawn shops. But if you do find yourself there, this is a comfortable place to...

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
