Hands down a very beautiful and exciting hotel. The 15th floor is the perfect spot for viewing the city at a good price... Look forward to my next stay:)

I got the idea that someone had smoked in my room or the adjoining room. The carpets were freshly shampooed. Other than that, I like staying at this hotel.

Spent the weekend in Sacramento. Had a great time. Hotel is walking distance to Old Town for shopping, food and entertainment. I have stayed here before. Good value too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Caffyw Above Average Businessman's Hotel
(Full Disclosure: The hubby is a IHG Rewards Club Member, so our stay may have been a bit different than if one isn't a member)
This is a really good hotel. It is a like a "high-end" hotel without the "high-end". It is a step up from a business man's hotel.
The Holiday Inn, Sacramento-Capitol Plaza is in midtown, Sacramento - turn the corner and you can spit on the Capitol building. to take care of your "tourista" inclinations, Old Town Sacramento is a short tunnel-walk away (or a short golf-cart ride, if you are riding), a very small Chinatown is literally across the street and a good sized mall is out the hotel door and one turn left.
My family and I stayed here for a convention. The convention was actually in the hotel's convention center. We drove up and were promptly greeted by a valet who was super-nice and told us how to get to the convention center while hubby checked us in.
We got a 14th floor room-it appeared to be oversized, with a King-sized bed and a pullout couch for the kid. The room was nicely appointed with lots of pillows, comfortable bed, nice big bathroom and air conditioning. The TV was LG, hi-def with a screen between 36"-40". This hotel features FREE Wi-Fi! Yeehaw! Stick in a code and hello free (and snappy) in-room WiFi! This was a great perk as one day was a work day, so there was no trekking to the lobby for WiFi's! Working from the comfort of the hotel room is the best! We heard some other doors closing from the inside our room, but it wasn't enough noise to really bother us. Also, the room was hermetically sealed, as most hotels tend to be - our room, at least, did not have a balcony. We did not have a view either, but I'm not sure any of the rooms had a view. This was not a deal breaker for us, as we were not in the room very often.
From the valet to the maintenance crew, our stay was first rate. Our toilet "ran" after flushing, but one call to housekeeping and it was fixed in a jiffy. Requests, from sheets/blankets for the pull out couch to a Phillips screwdriver for some last minute computer adjustments were cheerfully accommodated. The staff was super nice and very, very helpful when addressing our needs.
The gym is super small - Three treadmills, some stationery bicycles, free weights and mats. I was not familiar with the treadmill brand, but it was easy to use and I noticed all the treadmills had newish treads. The restroom is located outside the little gym. Back to the gym, it was clean and stocked with towels and water (a cooler, not bottles). I went super early in the morning so there were a couple people in and out, but it never got crowded.
This is not a "high-end" hotel for the following reasons:
1) The price is not high end. We got a "convention" rate in the low (very low) $100's/night. Yay!
2) The public areas are NOT super clean. There were spots on some of the hallways carpets. Whereas some high end hotels you want to take off your shoes and walk down the plushy carpet, at this hotel it's better to keep shoes on in public areas of the hotel.
3) Location, location, location. This hotel is NOT in a great location. As with any big city one must be careful when walking the streets. I sort of feel bad mentioning this, because it is not really within the hotel's control, but it could prove shocking to walk the streets unawares; it could be a rude awakening if not prepared to keep valuables, belongings and kids close. Inside the hotel, however, felt very safe and as there was a convention, there was a lot of security inside the hotel. That being said, since it was in the middle of town, there was plenty to do, with Old Sacramento very close and lots and lots (price and variety) of restaurant choices.
I would stay here again - heck, I would stay here if they picked up this hotel and staff and stuck it in the middle of nowhere!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WhiteHorse Nice room, but a bit stark
The comfortable bed gave a great night's sleep. Very friendly and helpful staff I would recommend a lower floor because my 9th floor room received much greater freeway noise (sound travels up) than the lower floors. If there was a light breakfast buffet and refrigerator in the room, I would consider returning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steviek58 Great location and good value
Within easy walking distance of key points of interest and rstaurants and bars etc in Old Sacremento with car parking on/adjacent to hotel. Rooms good clean and well appointed. Plenty facilities on site but downside is the limited snacks, sefvice and atmosphere in lobby bar area but plenty alternatives nearby in Old Sacremento.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weathergirl The staff is absolutely wonderful and provides great service
I highly recommend this hotel because the staff is absolutely wonderful! The staff must like working at this hotel because the staff has been there for awhile (ie. not a high turnover rate). They are always pleasant and willing to assist anyone who brings a problem to their attention.
Housekeeping keeps the rooms nice and clean!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SusannaD Hotel Security
I'd like to commend the hotel on its security procedures. I did not close my door all the way after entering my room, and a hotel manager was right there to make sure I was safe and let me know that the door was not shut all the way. During the same stay, my hotel card key would not work. The housekeeping staff was nearby and while they could help get me into my room, they would not let me enter until I showed some identification. I really appreciated this form of security in this hotel. Good Job!
The only complaint I would have is that it took long time to get a refrigerator brought to the room for my medication, and I had to call 3 times. The air conditioner was very noisy, but worked well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TAWP2 Pleasant staff & very clean
Nice hotel with exceedingly pleasant staff all around. The food was quite good in the dining room with excellent service. The rooms were clean and comfortable & the hotel was close to everything. No on-site parking was a bit challenging at times but all in all a minor matter. We will be most pleased to come back to this hotel when next in Sacramento.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jwu2013 Right on Old Town
Very convenient location to Old Town.
Went to see the fireworks. Too bad the rooms don't face the fireworks.
Bought the package including breakfast and enjoyed the buffet.
Also, got two free drink tickets as a executive platinum member.
Wifi was a bit slow in our room, so cannot use facetime or skype to do video calls.
The cost of the room with breakfast package is expensive, but cannot beat the location.
Also, the room's A/C is loud!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ldavid Staff was always happy and posative
Service was perfect. Hotel is perfectly situated to Old Sacremento and California State Railroad Museum.
A bit of a hard walk to State Capitol nd good resturants and Catholic Cathederal when it is 109*--overwise good.
Make sure you ask for a room on same side of hotel as Front desk--much quieter.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WesternTraveler33 Nice property; general manager should not be in this profession.
Property is very convenient to Old Sacramento area and shopping, as well as to the capitol plaza area. Well maintained, comfortable, clean, with up-to-date amenities. The housekeeping staff in particular were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.
My only complaint is that the hotel's general manager, who actually checked us in, seems to be in the wrong profession. Breakfast on the weekends begins an hour later than it does during the week, and as a result our flight's departure time didn't allow us to use the breakfast that was included - for an additional fee - with our prepaid room. (For anyone reading this review in a similar situation - be aware, on weekends breakfast does not begin until 7 a.m.) I even inquired if there would be items set out on a continental basis before 7 a.m. that we could at least pick up, but the answer was simply "no". My negative comments here aren't so much as to the particulars of the situation, but the fact that the hotel's general manager was completely unconcerned/did not even acknowledge my complaint re: it.
Customers aren't always right, but their concern should at least be acknowledged and responded to by a hotel's management staff. For this reason alone, I can't give a positive recommendation to others. Indifference at the top quickly spreads to all facets of an organization.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nel73 Go-to place for business
I travel to Sacramento about once a month for work and stay at this Holiday Inn in downtown. I have to say that it's a really good hotel that gives you a great bang for the buck. The rooms are clean and well kept, the staff is friendly and they know their stuff and they are very accommodating too. I drive in and their valet service is great. They get quite busy, but they do run a busy hotel. If you are a Priority Club member, you get a complimentary drink ticket when you arrive. It's an older hotel, but the rooms have been renovated and the view of downtown is pretty good. It's right next to the downtown mall so there's decent shopping on that end. Cross under the I-5 freeway and you're in Old Sac. One con I have, which isn't really the hotel's fault at all, is that there aren't many good places to eat that are close. Old Sac has a limited selection and mall food isn't always what I'm looking for. It's really a problem of downtown Sacramento than anything else. A few minutes drive away from downtown and there is plenty of pickens for food. The other con is that many of the other Holiday Inn hotels offer a complimentary hot breakfast. I wish they would too! All in all, though, it's a good place to stay when you're in town for work or just looking for a place to get a way for a bit.

The location is excellent for visiting Old Sacramento as well as the attractions around the Capitol; we walked everywhere. Our room was spacious and the service excellent, We also had a very good and reasonably priced dinner in the restaurant. The pool area is clean and spacious, but shade is limited, even in the slatted area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sweetpea79 Pleseant stay
Nice & roomy and the staff was very helpful.
A few things to note is that you have to pay for a fridge to be put in the room. $15 per day. That's absolutely ridiculous! Either provide them in the room at no charge, (standard) or don't provide any at all. For goodness sake the Super 8 has a fridge & microwave standard in all their rooms, and that's at a low end hotel.
Also the lighting was a bit awkward and room was dark if you didn't open the curtains, which doesn't help much at night. :)
The beds were a bit uncomfortable. I know everyone has individual preferences whether it be firmer or softer so I realize it's impossible to please everyone especially with the beds, but for what its worth, it did create a sore back in the morning.
All in all, great stay. Nice location for visits to Old Town and Downtown Plaza. Roof top pool is awesome but a bit breezy after the sun goes down. This made for a very invigorating swim. :)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Viajera61 room not dark
While the room was generally clean and comfortable, and the location is great, I woke up before 6 a.m. because it was not possible to darken the room. The dark curtains do not cover 5 or 6 feel of window (over the air conditioning unit). That definitely made my stay unpleasant!
The breakfast was average, but item received was not as ordered. Because of time reasons, I did not return it. I did tell the server and was not charged.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tecmentor Nice Room, costly parking and breakfast
The breakfast choice was unattractively expensive for pretty standard fare. We walked through to Old Sacramento and had a great breakfast in Steamers Bakery & Cafe on K Street. Really great atmosphere and the food was good value.
The best part of the hotel is its location. Beyond that everything lived up to the Holiday Inn promise and that's worth lots.

My husband and I come to Old Town about 4 times a year and always stay here. We've brought friends and family and are always impressed at how we are greeted by the staff. Marisol always remembers us, and because we have a bit of a drive to get there accomodates our early check ins. We also appreciate the friendly service we receive from James in Vallet. The hotel is nice, clean and we enjoy staying there. We've eaten at both the lounge and the restaurant and have enjoyed both. Can't say enough about your hotel and your staff!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaisyT2012 One of the best Holiday Inn In CA
I was here for a conference and did not expect anything from Sacramento since I've been to this place so many times. However, this hotel made my stay a lot different. This hotel is one of the best hotel in CA. Its clean, looks new and the overall condition of the hotel is excellent. Not to mention the location. Its connected to the mall and old town Sacramento. The gym at this hotel is most decent gym out of all the Holiday Inn that I've stayed at; their machines are relatively new. Further, the pastries that they've served during the conference were so delicious. Could not ask for more.

A great location with plenty of shopping and restaurants near Old Sacramento. We found the beds to be uncomfortable and in need of possible mattress replacement. Because of the location, parking was not convenient and was an additional fee. Hotel was convenient to the ball park while attending a Sacramento River Cats baseball game.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DSLA In-room amenities
I liked the location of the hotel and the room was very comfortable; however, when traveling for business it is nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in my room. The hotel is very close to Old Sacramento and right next to a mall, so there are plenty of dining options, but on Sundays everything closes early and other nights it doesn't seem altogether safe to wander around the city, so being able to have some way to preserve and cook food in my room would have been nice.

Our health care organization held the annual conference here at Capital Plaza.
We were extremely pleased with the service and the responsive staff. The meeting rooms were perfectly set up and the food was most excellent.
Only small surprise was during the pre-conference meeting, the staff only supplied ice water during the organizational discussion. We a as we had travelled a distance and were a bit hypoglycemic.
All in all a fabulous experienc and we will be back!
Thank you H.I. Capital Plaza.

Stayed on the Consierge Floor and the Hostess was awesome, very professional, friendly and helpful.
Room was nice, clean and updated. Bed was comfortable.
Lobby was clean and busy.
Valet/bellman, Armando, was very courtiuos, helpful, pleasant and friendly with great sense of humor.
Front desk did not program our room keys correctly and the second night when we tried to get into room we had to carry all our personal items to lobby to get correctly programmed keys. This was very frustrating.
Would of had a five rating overall if not for this debacle.

I recently stayed at the property and not what i expected. When I checked in the person at the desk was rude, i asked if she saw that i was a Gold member her response "yeah". When i went to my room the TV didn't work, after looking behind the set i found it was un- plugged, so i took care of that, but still it didn't work. I found the connection from the outlet directly to the TV was also unplugged. The TV was actually disconnected from the wall outlet. Sometimes it the little things that you remember, but i'll remember.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stuffy Excellent Choice for visitors to Old Sacramento or downtown
I’ve stayed at this HI before a little over a decade ago and when I recently decided to visit Old Sacramento, which is nearly at the foot of its entrance, it was an easy choice. Shoppers will love the a-joining mall. The staff was great, my room great with one caveat. The hotel restaurant serves an excellent breakfast as well as proving a very equipped breakfast bar including omelets made to order.
My one complaint: Why oh why does this excellent room come with cheap coffee?
