Perfect location

We took Amtrak train to Sacramento and the hotel is in walking distance. It's also a perfect location to visit old Sacramento by foot. It's was a perfect 3 day trip. The restaurant inside hotel offered a cup for to go - a nice touch.

close to airport

Pros: location in relation to airport
Cons: temperature food
Location: there were plenty of things close by to walk around and see
was able to check in before 3pm which was great. But lobby and hallways were extremely hot. Turned air conditioning on in room. There was no cable just basic channels until about 6pm then suddenly had cable channel available. Room was clean and comfortable. Called to get food and was told that the menu was outdated, did like the option of pick up and also room service.

If you are headed to Old Town

If you are headed to Old Town this is the right hotel because you can walk there. Which is a good thing because it took 45 minutes to get into the parking garage.

Great room for the price

Pros: Free Internet
Very good value. The room was very nice. Had to pay for parking, but only $16/day, which is a lot less than other cities. I stayed here because downtown Sac can be a little sketchy and I wanted my car to be valet parked. I wish I would have had time to shop in the mall next door!

Nice Hotel within the City

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: no free breakfast
I got there too late to get my clothes laundered, so I had to use the iron and table in the room. I don't think the hotel expects you to use it because the table had no real cushion on it. Overall, it was a clean room and nice stay.

My stay, at the Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza, went beyond my expectations.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, connected to the mall, great on site restaurant
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel and my stay. The staff was very friendly, especially at the on site restaurant, Cyprus Grille. The food and service was outstanding. Another perk, which was discovered during the stay, is that guest of the Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza, get an automatic 10% discount at Downtown Westfield Plaza, the mall it's connected to. If ever in Sacramento, I would definitely stay there again.
