Visitors to the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel in Sacramento, California will immediately see why the hotel was named one of the five best hotels in the city. Its convenient location in the heart of downtown Sacramento makes it an ideal place to stay while exploring California's capital city. The Golden 1 Center, the home of the Sacramento Kings, and the city's premier concert venue, is just steps away.

This boutique hotel offers many unique amenities, including a daily social hour in the living room or on the pool deck, and can read the morning paper with complimentary coffee and tea service each morning in the living room. Guests may borrow a bicycle and see all of Sacramento on the city's 32 miles of bike paths. Each room has a yoga mat, and yoga classes are offered by the pool deck on weekends. An on-site fitness center, laundry and dry-cleaning services, and free Wi-Fi help make each guest feel at home. Unlike most downtown hotels, pets are welcome at the Kimpton Sawyer, with no extra fees.

One of the highlights of the property is the rooftop pool, where guests can swim, lounge, and listen to live music while enjoying a birds-eye view of the city. At night, the indoor/outdoor Revival bar is a great place to socialize and relax.

The Kimpton Sawyer is ideal for meeting and events, boasting 22,000 square feet of event space, from large ballrooms to conference rooms, and outdoor space. Guests can also reserve the rooftop pool for special events, a perfect place for an evening social hour after a day of conferences.

10.0 Excellent
The rooms were immaculate and spacious. The layout of the room and bathroom were ingenious (and I don’t say that lightly). The space was planned so it was efficiently and made it so easy to use. The location was spot on for restaurants and shopping. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I do travel extensively and have been to MANY hotels and this is by far my favorite!!!
9.1 Excellent
Pros:The room was really nice! It was in a great location. Staff was friendly.
Cons:The information regarding parking could've been better. I assumed we had the option to either self-park (through the hotel) or valet not realizing the hotel doesn't have a parking garage to self park so when I left at night I had to pay $18 through the city on top of the $70 overnight parking to then park with valet through the hotel. The pool was packed when we went to go swimming in the morning and the staff just walked around completely ignoring us instead of trying to help us find somewhere to sit. They had signs set up on tables saying the area was reserved for 10 am yet no one was even sitting there at 1130 am. Bad customer service when that's what their job is there to do. I called ahead to make sure my reservation was okay because the card I originally booked it under was cancelled. The lady I spoke with confirmed my reservation and confirmed with me that everything was good to go. I showed up to check in and the front desk lady then told me my reservation was cancelled?? Extremely frustrating after driving 8 hours to Sacramento and just wanting to get into the room and relax. Fortunately, they were able to rebook the reservation but it was just frustrating to have to do so.
7.7 Good
Pros:Great coffee, nice service.
Cons:A little more upkeep and cleanliness (especially for a suite). Need better coordination with in-room spa services. Our service never arrived after attempting to book three times prior to our stay (and finally calling and confirming with them the day before our stay). Nonetheless, they never arrived and we were charged for our services anyway. I had to chase down the service for a refund - at first they claimed that we were not in our room, finally admitting that they failed to properly coordinate with the hotel and nobody ever arrived. We received a refund, but it was not worth the trouble. The staff is very friendly - especially the tall kid that checked us in... but there can be a bit more attention given to detail, i.e. cleaning condensation stains on ceilings and walls of rooms, stocking more water and replacing bent/crumpled room service menus with new ones... high-end prices for mediocre ambiance, but I'm sure with some hard work - the place can become world class.
