Hotel Description

Though it’s the capital of California, a state with an economy bigger than those of about 180 countries, Sacramento doesn’t get much respect — it’s often overshadowed by nearby San Francisco, much as Albany plays second fiddle to New York City. But in the Citizen Hotel, Sacramento might finally have the hotel it deserves.

It’s by any definition a modern boutique hotel, conceived by the California-based Joie de Vivre group. But stylistically it’s far from the modern-design standard. Instead the Citizen is full of historical references, with an atmosphere that recalls the 19th century — think gold mining, railroad barons, the Wild West struck rich and grown up.

By the time you get to the rooms, the retro atmosphere is fairly subtle — some guests, in town on official government business, might not pay it a second thought. Bedrooms are not quite haute luxury, but more than comfortable enough, with all the necessities: fine Italian linens, efficient work spaces, and Mac Minis in all the rooms, serving as one-stop movie, music and internet centers.

Grange, the restaurant, showcases modern Californian cuisine — organic, local and seasonal — in a genteel throwback atmosphere, and the Scandal Bar feels like the sort of place where back-room deals are made (sans cigar smoke). In fact they probably are, given the Citizen’s central location, close by to the courthouse and the Capitol.
