If your budget allows, consider staying in a suite. I very much enjoyed my recent visit to the Citizen. I stayed in the Elks Suite on the top floor which had nice views from each of several windows. The staff was extremely professional, among the best I have encountered at any Marriott property. The bed was very comfortable and the...

Twin share room was great. 2 big comfy double beds. Serviced daily to very high standard. We had a very large bathroom. The rooms are all different though. The bar downstairs great for affordable lunch. Dinner menu more expensive but service is second to none & it's quite a fancy spot for dinner.

Although I am a loyal Marriott Gold member with almost 900 lifetime nights, I had yet to try one of their new Autograph Collection. Finding myself in Sacramento for a business dinner at the attached Grange restaurant (very good, BTW), I was excited to stay at The Citizen. I have to say I was disappointed. I was originally given a...

This is part of the Marriott family so if your gold or higher they will give you complementary breakfast in the restaurant the Grange. This hotel is definitely older classical style hotel but does not feel dated due being updated. They do not have parking garage only valet at 28/day.

This specialty hotel in the Marriott collection is a gem. Upon entry it feels like your walking into a luxurious past. Rich wood, old treasures -- book cases, chairs, etc. add to the ambiance. There are old political cartoons, quotes and artwork throughout the lobby, elevators and rooms. The room was decorated with flair and the bed was comfy. Enjoyed...

This is a nice hotel, clean and well maintained. Staff were also very nice and kind/welcoming. The room was tiny - I felt like I was in a coffin. Very small, with striped wallpaper, and only one window, which was high on the wall, so it felt very claustrophobic. Walls are thin. I was awakening at 11pm and again at...

Was weary about staying at this hotel because I knew it was an older property but I ended up loving it. It doesnt feel "old" - it's vintage, and historic. The rooms are small, but well decorated, and the bed is comfortable. I was a huge fan of the bathrooms, terrific design. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The...

You won't find a better hotel in Sacramento for personalized service, lovely rooms, great historical political satire on walls, and a restaurant, Grange, with the freshest food I've had in Sac. The valets go the extra mile, and service is effortless and non-intrusive. GM David Shipman has infused an air of gracious hospitality and "can do" attitude, and Chef Olive...

Nice boutique hotel, but in the middle of an exploding homeless population in Sacremento. Room was small, but clean and unique, however, right across the street is a small park filled with homeless people. They make some noise in the middle of the night that can disrupt your sleep. Ask for a high floor. We were on the 5th and...

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
