Krishan is professional, friendly, and attentive. It's refreshing to get real solid customer service. His check in was quick and he answered all my questions without making me feel like I was a hindrance. He's truly a high end employee that shouldn't be taken for granted. The two women (I wish I wrote down their names) in the breakfast room at 6:30am on April 4th were both very polite and made me feel special and valued with all the attention they gave me. Both greeted me and waited on me several times before I left to start my day. Notice that this is my first review I've left. This is because it was important for me to recognize these employees and let them know what an outstanding job they really do. I'll come back. Thanks. -Robert L (Rm 212)

Average hotel

Staff was nice and friendly. The room wouldn't cool below 72 degrees even with the cool set to 66 ( the lowest it would go). I made mention of this to the gentleman than came to fix our in room safe (it was broke/or out of batteries). He said all he had to do was move some valve in the hallway and he would. It never cooled below 72 the whole time.

Weekend Getaway

Hilton never fails me. After being in Sacramento for five months for work, I needed a little “me” time. Coming from the Adirondacks of New York, for me that means mountains, trees, fresh air, small towns. My stay here covered it all plus an added bonus of having a beach 15 mins away. Easy access to everything, great room with balcony and view and top notch customer service I have come to expect from all my Hilton stays.

Best hotel treatment EVER
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed here for 4 nights for our 9th anniversary. We had mentioned it to the hotel ahead of time and to our surprise they upgraded our room to a 2 room suite, had chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting when we arrived. They also gave us $50 credit to the bar/restaurant. They were so personable by checking in via Hilton honors app and making sure everything was okay. You can tell they make it a point to get to know their guests by a first name basis. Shout out to Emmanuel, Elise, and Nikole for their awesome attention and making our stay memorable and enjoyable.

Do not arrive until 4:00 check in. Prepare to walk 101 steps from elevator to your room which is 3 buildings away from main lobby. Do not fall for "Balcony views of Redwoods", and bring your own coffee.
