    Great location in the city

    The Citizen Hotel was a very central location. Most pet friendly hotels near Sacramento seem to be north of Sacramento. The hotel is across from the Cesar Chavez Park, so we took our dog on a short walk or potty breaks around there, since there are no specific area for pet relief on the hotel site. Staff here are very friendly, my dog has gotten spoiled with a few pets and treats. The only thing that kept this hotel from receiving 5 bones is that it is part of the Marriott so you'll have to pay for Wi-Fi if you did not book with your Marriott membership. If there was a way to get free Wi-Fi in the rooms, we weren't able to figure it out on our stay. Other than that, this hotel was great!

    The hotel is clean and quiet, staff were very helpful and attentive. Strongly suggest taking your dogs down to Capital park for a walk. Cesar Chavez park is full of rats, my dogs were going crazy trying to chase them. No parking included.

    Lovely accommodation

    Beautiful building, staff, and room in the midst of a city trying hard to renew itself. Park directly across the street is useful but not yet renewed for relaxed strolling or sitting. Would definitely stay again in this cocoon of loveliness and security.

    Fantastic Vintage Hotel

    The hotel on the inside was wonderful. Nick who checked us in was extremely helpful and welcoming. We absolutely loved our view of the capital. The hotel was walking distance to lots of great restaurants and old Sacramento.

    Nice hotel but iffy location

    Cool hotel located across from park with many homeless and street people.
    No problem except dealing with consistently being asked for money or assistance when walking outside.

    Very nice hotel but challenging location

    Inside the hotel is great, but outside there was music playing until midnight. Generally the area feels a bit sketch but overall ok.

    Great hotel but ruff location

    I stayed at the hotel during COVID-19 so I know my experience as far as taking advantage of the amenities was limited. No special treats, things closed, pick up food only etc. so not judging based on that. It’s a weird time.

    The room was great - clean, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, good design, and a fantastic view of the capital. Parking is either on the street or in the city hall structure.

    But I did not feel comfortable walking my dog in the park area across the street due to the homeless population. I’d recommend any other solo female travelers book outside of the downtown area.

    Wonderful Staff

    We stayed one night at The Citizen in May. My husband and I and our two adult Springer Spaniels. This was the first trip for our 7 year old Odie. The staff was wonderful to all of us. The doormen held the door for us while Odie figured things out. They had biscuits at the front desk which won over both of our dogs. The room was very pretty although a little small for the four of us. The hotel is located close the the capitol and so most of the quests were in office apparel. Always a bit nerve racking to keep the spaniels away from all the dark suits and dresses. However, all of the guests were happy to smile and pet the dogs as we rode up and down the elevator. There is a small park directly across from the hotel which is wonderful during the day, but the homeless population move in in the evening and some of them are not very happy sharing their park with the dogs. However the park-like grounds around the capitol were great. We highly recommend this hotel.
