After enjoying the fabulous breakfast our elephant brought to us, we packed up and headed to Carmel to the aquarium and to Cannery Row made famous by the John Steinbeck novel of the same name. I don't think John would recognize Cannery Row these days. It is pretty touristy, but I think he would approve of the great aquarium there. Not as large as …
... when we were on the cruise portion ... the ship had very slow internet access and it was expensive. For this trip, it looks like we will have free Wi-Fi available at all our hotels and on the boat as well as at Bill's apartment. I am hoping that I can therefore keep up this blog in a timely manner and share our adventure with you all. China does restrict some internet activity so I have my fingers crossed that I will have access to the blog and can post. ...
Nothing to see today arrived mid morning with 2 hour time difference. Had afternoon in my room catching up on emails & a much needed nana nap. Was in bed early & looking forward to the weekend off.
Viva Las Vegas tonight after work. Bring it on. A whole 2 days without having to go to an airport yeeha
... and not just on Mardi Gras. No surprise there. There is a walkway that connects old town to new town and New Town is a bit more modern. It has a lot of outdoor shopping centers. We didn't always feel safe once we left the shopping centers. It was a bit dodgy. The capital of California is Sacramento, so they have a mini white house looking building here and a park surrounding it. The park was not the best, but it had a lot of rose bush and orange trees. ...
... to the cave, and then it is another hour to explore one of the caves with a ranger. My back was not working well, so we opted out of going. It is a very pretty area to explore and I think we will spend more time there next time we are in Utah.
We then headed for the state capitol in Salt Lake City. It was a Sunday but the capitol was still open for the public and so we got to wander around. It is a beautiful capital, but unfortunately I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Sacramento
We stayed in a club room and thought it was nice. It had a nice patio area; nice comfortable sitting chair and couch (convert into sleeper); desk; comfortable bed and 2 sinks for the bathroom. Given when the hotel was built, the bathroom is quite nice. We thought overall the rooms were nice for a stay. We found the location for the California State Fair ideal and it was not a far drive to Sacramento Old Town (about 15-20 minutes).
Dilapidated Room Condition - Room Damaged
For a 1* hotel, at a 3* price-- the Doubletree is for you. Our room (#111) featured wallpaper burns; peeling molding, and multiple carpet stains up to one foot in diameter. The bathroom fixtures were vintage 1970's decor, and the pool was confirmed as unheated (Sacramento Fall / Winter / Spring get pretty chilly). The room decor / condition quality was similar to Motel-6 and Econolodges that I have stayed at. Appears to be an older hotel that the chain is milking as a "cash cow" with few repeat visitors. Multiple visitors had complaints upon checkout.
I travel a lot and what makes me come back to a hotel is the experience. The staff at this hotel exceeded my expectations in delivering outstanding customer service. I came in after a long day of driving, and the front desk greeted me with a warm chocolate chip cookie. They opend the kitchen for me after it had already closed and also asked me if I needed a wake up call. I can not tell you how at ease this put me. When I got to the room (ask for Cal Expo wing) everything looked new and the bed was very comfortable. I guess they put the new doubletree beds. Buisness takes me to Sacramento and I plan on making this my new home away from home.
Loved this Place!!
We just happened to stay at the nearest hotel to the Expo. At the very beginning, we were met by a wonderful desk clerk, our room was clean and looked fairly new.
When we checked out, my daughter left her favorite doll which her grandmother gave her before she passed away. I called the hotel, told them what had happened, they immediately called me back and shipped the doll next day air.
I've traveled around the world and stayed in many hotels. I plan on staying at this hotel whenever I'm in the Sacramento Area.
Does look better
This hotel has been updated since my last visit. The lobby looks better and the carpeting is better!
I have to agree - this place is mediocre.........
The good thing about the hotel is the location. The bad things are: rooms are VERY far from the main lobby area. I encountered two older ladies that were completely lost due to the confusing floorplan and had to give them directions to their own room. Also - the people working room service were incompetent and rude, so I finally gave up getting breakfast there. The pool is rather small and has lots of pesky gnats that get irritating after a while. For the money - I think the downtown Hilton is much nicer and enjoyable.
The people who run this hotel should be ashamed of themselves to charge the rates they do for this motel style hotel! The only thing the Double Tree has going for itself is the lobby and the location - it's across the street from Arden Fair mall. The hotel is totally run down and needs a MAJOR remodeling job. Just in front of the elevator to our room was a huge metal bin just sitting in the hallway which was there through our entire stay. The rooms are spacious - but outdated by a couple of decades. The bathroom floors are lined with linoleum, the bathroom counter tops are coriander, our towel rack fell off the wall when we grabbed a towel, the couch in the bedroom was stained & dirty.
Not only was this hotel old and worn, I agree with the previous writer that it is VERY poorly managed. I paid an extra $25 a night for the club level room thinking it would be better. It was horribly dusty and the heat would not work. I asked them to clean the room again and had to ask four times before someone actually fixed the heat. The entrance to our "wing" looked like the freight entrance. The door needs repairing and painting and it is dark when you walk into the hallway.
I agree with the reviewer who says the hotel is in dire need of remodeling. Our room was old, worn, and the bathroom is horribly old as well. The furniture has seen better days and is of the prefab. kind.
I was very disappointed with my recent stay at the Sacramento Doubletree. While the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is not anywhere near the standards of other Doubletrees I have stayed at in the past. The hotel is very old and could seriously use remodeling better yet, tear it down and start over. Our room had very old and worn furniture, stained carpet, a torn bedspread, and worst of all hairs in the shower from the previous guest! The mattresses were hard and uncomfortable. And our first floor room also had a thin ceiling the noise from the people in the room above us simply walking around was extremely irritating and kept me awake until they went to bed, and we could actually hear them close their bathroom door and start their shower in the morning. Stay clear of this place if you can, there are newer hotels down the street that I wish I had seen before we checked in!
