They allow dogs, whihc is fine, except the one in the room next to me barked all night and the staff was not sympathetic at all. There were 5 keurig coffe capsules but all decaf, I called and asked for regular. Was told it would take room service an hour to get it up to me. It never got to me. The fridge didn't work and they didn't apologize, just said they'd made a note of it for their maintenance crew

The hotel is a great location to downtown Sacramento and an easy walk to the capitol. The staff is friendly and very helpful in solving any concerns and giving information. We enjoyed our three night stay very much and would recommend the hotel.

Old Classic

It's a great old hotel, but $250 for the night seemed excessive.

Nice boutique hotel

Nice hotel, unique, romantic. Lobby feels like Profesor Dumbledorf's library. We drove by twice, no sign outside, we just happened to finally see the lobby and recognize from photos to find the place. The city parking garage is right across street so easy to park yourself, valet keeps cars there too so you might as well park yourself. No bathtub was a small disappointment (they did not advertise one) especially since the bathroom is huge. They need more towel/clothes hooks in there. One negative was that being small - room service closed at night until 6:30 so because we were catching an early flight no chance for breakfast. Price was right for a nice hotel so we are overall happy.

Great Location

Pros: Location & professional and friendly staff. The bar is a fun place to hang out.
Location: Great location in proximity to the state capitol, Cesar Chavez Park, and great restaurants.
Hotel is a located within walking distance to public transportation, coffee shops, the capitol, great restaurants and night life, and Cesar Chavez Park (always something fun going on there). The bar is a great place to enjoy a custom cocktail or local beer and have a bite. The hotel staff is friendly, warm, and very professional. The pricing was reasonable considering the location. With a hotel of this age and in this location, one should be aware that rooms are small but comfortable. The bathroom was very nice. They charge for WiFi, there is no pool, and you will be charged $28 per day for valet parking (you can self park at the garage nearby). When closing a curtain in the evening, we found that one panel was stained with either coffee or something worse. Upon further inspection it appeared that someone may have tried to wash the panel (as was evident by about six inches of shrinkage in this curtain). I notified the front desk the next morning and they were appropriately apologetic. I hope they replace it as it really was disgusting.
