The Citizen Hotel, Autograph Collection 

A warmly inviting and historic hotel, The Citizen boasts a well-regarded farm-to-fork restaurant and brings oodles of classic character to its downtown address.

The Citizen Hotel in Sacramento celebrates its 1925 beginnings as California’s first skyscraper with sophisticated classical styling and curated political art. All 196 rooms have a traditional feel about them, and while some are on the small side, the high ceilings and boldly striped wallpaper lend them some grandeur. Whatever size room you choose, the 300-thread count Italian linens and a super comfy bed are guaranteed.

Sacramento has more farm-to-fork restaurants than most cities, and one of the best belongs to The Citizen. Grange Restaurant & Bar is well-regarded and popular, featuring only fresh and locally sourced ingredients, and its impressive two-storey wine vault promises a perfect pairing. The Marketplace in the lobby is a handy place to pick up snacks and supplies ahead of a day exploring Sacramento.

Head to California State Capitol, the Crocker Art Museum, Old Sacramento to follow the river walk, or out of the city to the region’s acclaimed wineries.
