Handsome and historic, the Citizen Hotel is set in a cleverly restored 1920's building in downtown Sacramento. It attracts visiting politicians and local big wigs -- perhaps for its political film library or maybe for the swanky, intimate ambiance.

The hotel overlooks Cesar Chavez Plaza Park, which occupies a historical district studded with landmarks such as the State Capitol Building and Capitol Park. A few blocks away you’ll find Midtown, where most of the city’s galleries, restaurants and wine bars are situated. Also nearby are the Crocker Art Museum and the Sacramento River.

The upscale restaurant, Grange, is popular with food critics for its farm-fresh Californian fare and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel does have a fitness center, but most guests prefer to run along the river instead -- the 32-mile-long trail is less than 10 blocks from the hotel.

Rooms are on the small side, but are well dressed with traditional striped wallpaper, velvet armchairs and Italian linens. Upgrade to the historic 13th floor for impressive tile work in the bathrooms and deep bath tubs (suites only).

From the press:
  • "A favorite overnight roost among visiting politicians, business leaders, and celebs" -- Fodor's
  • "First-class services in a prime location at the center of the action" -- Frommer's
