Upon entering the Hyatt Regency’s lobby in downtown Sacramento, you’ll quickly forget you’re in a branch of one of the world’s largest hotel chains. A 2011 renovation by design team Looney & Associates lent a luxe minimalism to the common spaces softened by organic elements, from a massive driftwood sculpture to geometric chairs reminiscent of cut gemstones.
Bed and Bath
The hotel’s 503 rooms are contemporary and inviting with soft textures and a warm palette of crimson, cream and goldenrod. Pillowtop mattresses are topped with soft sheets and thick down blankets, the perfect place to hole up and watch that 42” flatscreen or listen to tunes on your iHome docking station.
While the Hyatt’s location is prime for exploring Sacramento, there’s enough on-site to keep you entertained. Have a craft cocktail mixed up for you in the Amourath 1819 bar (think sleek white tabletops, woven wood light fixtures and an art installation of hanging bottles), which hosts wine tastings on Tuesdays and local musical talent like crooner Quinn Hedges on Wednesdays. The hotel’s trademark Dawson’s chophouse, all leather booths and wood paneling, is the perfect spot for a power lunch. Also onsite? NorCal cuisine at Vine Café, a Starbucks for to-go breakfasts, a heated outdoor pool and hot tub and the new Emperia Wellness Spa.
In the Area
Only steps away from the capitol building and convention center in downtown Sacramento, the Hyatt Regency puts you in the center of the city’s action whether you’re there for business or pleasure. The city sits in California’s biggest agriculture regions, so you should browse the farmers markets and head to locavore spots like Hook & Ladder for housemade sausages and pastas and Hock Farm Craft & Provisions for seasonal fare. Drink in the craft brews on tap at LowBrau while sampling their specialty sausages. Walk it off in Old Sacramento, a picturesque throwback to the Wild West. Debate the flavors in saltwater taffy shops, have a pint or two in a saloon, and watch the sunset over the Sacramento River. A 30-minute drive out of Sacramento is Locke Historic District. Spend half a day exploring the country’s only remaining rural Chinatown, built by and for Chinese immigrants.
How to Get There
I called room service to have our room set on automatic cool air throughout the night. Only the room did not remain cool all night. I would suggest adding a fan or air freshener to the complimentary items for the bathroom. Overall, we had a pleasant experience at the Hyatt Regency.
This was my first time at the Hyatt Regency. Everyone I encountered was very friendly and made me feel welcome. My room was comfortable and I highly recommend the Hyatt to anyone traveling to Sacramento.
Great place to stay if you are looking to be near downtown. The rooms, service & food are fantastic. I highly recommend a stay here. Parking is close by in a Muti-level lot.
There is a pool here for the hot summer days that Sacramento can get.
Most folks know what they get with a Hyatt Regency. What we did not expect at this location is the access to fantastic selection of restaurants, bars, pubs within walking distance. Went to a concert at Golden1 Arena and did not even need to Uber, a few blocks walk was all. Also nice to see the manicured grounds of Governers' Mansion just across the street.
Clean room, great service and location. Very good fitness gym for a hotel. The only downside is you have to go outside and around the corner to access it. Felt uneasy as a lone female doing so in the predawn
