There’s a lot to see and do when you decide to spend some time in Sacramento, California. One of the key things you’ll definitely want to hone in on before making any travel itinerary in the state capital of California, however, is where you’re going to be staying.

So with that in mind, here’s a handy guide with a few hotel options to choose from and details that might help in your decision-making.

  1. Embassy Suites by Hilton Sacramento Riverfront Promenade


    Located centrally within the city, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Sacramento Riverfront Promenade offers easy accessibility to both Old Sacramento and downtown Sacramento.

    After getting settled into one of the hotel’s two-room suites and enjoying some complimentary drinks, feel free to walk along the breathtaking Riverfront Promenade and take in the historic Tower Bridge. Or go ahead and book a ticket to one of the many performances that might be available at the Golden 1 Center during your stay, and then stroll on over when it’s time to take in your show.


    If neither of those options are your cup of tea, there’s no reason to worry. You can always head on over to the California State Capitol to soak in historic sights and catch a peek at politics in action. Or check the the Sacramento Convention Center calendar for any number of major events, meetings and more that occur throughout the year.
