Property's Old World ambiance and convenient location stood out to prior visitors
Standard rooms (which measure 225 square feet) felt a bit cramped to some past guests
Overlooking Cesar Chavez Plaza in downtown Sacramento, The Citizen Hotel, Autograph Collection wins visitors' favor because it's exemplary in providing luxury. Past travelers were particularly fond of the property's stately ambiance evoked with its red furniture and shelves of old books in the lobby, as well as its comfortable (albeit small) accommodations. What's more, rooms at this Autograph Collection hotel (which is affiliated with Marriott) come equipped with Keurig coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and Frette luxury linens. But the Old World charm doesn't prevent The Citizen Hotel from offering a modern fitness center, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and a 24-hour business center. Guests also praise the hotel's ideal location near the state capitol, the convention center and numerous eateries. For visitors who'd rather dine on-site, there's the Grange Restaurant & Bar, which dishes up Californian cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
