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
We have stayed at multiple Hyatt’s. This location is not the “Hyatt experience” you expect. Our headboard was covered in dust and the room smelt musty. This Hyatt definitely lacks the Hyatt Luster! Probably won’t be back anytime soon...
Outdated rooms. Mold in a bathtub. Poorly cleaned drawers. Shower head old and water pressure weak. Poor noise isolation.Drinks great. Last call early though at midnight on a sat night.Service at front desk-great! Recieved my input and was able to compensate for poor room cleanliness and overall poor experience. We like Hyatt but wouldnt stay at Sacramento location until they make some updates.
Stay here every year for the Almond Convention. Nice place located across the street from the convention center. Rooms are nice, restaurants are good and friendly employees. Also located near many good restaurants.
Very convenient location right next to expo and race morning bus pickup as well as short walk from marathon finish line. Starbucks loacted right next door. Very friendly and helpful staff, happy to answer all questions.
I reserved the Hyatt for the CIM 2018 weekend. Hyatt was the most expensive hotel in the area, but I decided to stay there because a) it was conveniently located near the finish line, and b) some race-related events were being hosted at the hotel. Every staff member I met, from the front desk to the service people, were very friendly and happy to help. However, I felt the Hyatt fell short in servicing a special request, and in the prep of my room before I arrived. In particular, regarding the special request, the Hyatt very nicely sent out an email prior to arrival asking whether I needed anything. I asked that the room be cleaned early on the day of the marathon, since I didn't want to leave after I got back from the race. Apparently there was some sort of communication breakdown since the room wasn't cleaned, and when I asked the service staff in the hall they didn't have any record of such a request. To their credit, they offered to immediately clean the room. However, I really didn't want to wait for that. The second issue came up when I discovered that the bathroom amenities had not been re-stocked before I checked into the room. I found this out at a very inconvenient time, and had to go back out and down the hall to request the missing supplies.While still in the hotel, I emailed the front desk with my experience. I also followed up later in the day with the front desk manager. She thanked me for my feedback.Under normal circumstances, I wouldn't consider either of the items above to be a big deal. But for the top-dollar cost, the top-notch rating of the hotel, and since they reached out and specifically asked me for any special requests, this was not the experience I expected.
