Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel
Travel Blogs from Sacramento
Last night we all slept very well (some of us too well). What woke me up was the alarm at 7am that Mattias must have turned on last night. But that didn't have any effect on Roxy and Mattias who just continued sleeping. I somehow managed to wake Roxy up at 8am and Mattias finally woke up at 8:30.
What this meant was that we didn't arrive in …
This morning we started our adventures by checking out the Chimney Tree. Not just another tourist scam, - oh, my mistake, yes it is! - this tree is blacked out from a fire or something. Anyway it was kind of cool to take a peak inside and I don't think we had to pay for it so why not. We drove down the Avenue of Giants, which is surrounded by …
We arrived at the airport late at night and jumped in the taxi. I asked the man "what is there to do in Sacramento?" He said "Well Old Sac......" (I thought he was calling me old sac) but then he continued and said "not much, just a bunch of politicians." Old Sac is what the locals say for Old Sacramento. We stayed the night in a hotel that seemed to be in a convenient location on the map, but was about a 20 minute walk from where all the action was ...
... been a good day for me here so I will overlook it, but if you had been found by a member of the Uluru tribe you both would have been fined $5k and escorted from the park .To be fair, Kathy said, when we were inside the Cultural Center, there was a sign which warned "if any of your group break the rules, your entire group will be fined and escorted out of the park".
Justice... past and present...and what of the future?
I have been asked that question almost as much as, "What are you doing? That is just crazy."
Well the internet is a good place to start. It is filled with all kinds of information that when all gathered in the same place can be very helpful. A quick Google search will probably turn up more than necessary and getting though chaff can be particularly grinding. What questions do you even start with? Ask a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel
My now wife and I stayed at the Sheraton Grand for our wedding downtown. We live in Sacramento but needed to be close to the ceremony and reception sites. We were very pleased with the hotel. My wife stayed in a suite and the men and I stayed in a regular room. The suite was extremely spacious and provided an excellent view of downtown Sacramento and J Street below. I did feel that the bathroom could have been nicer to compliment the rest of the room. My room was excellent. The carpet appeared to be fairly new and the comforter and down pillows were a dream come true. We all slept like babies here. I don't think I have ever slept so well at any comparably price hotel anywhere. All employees of the hotel were excellent in their customer service skills. I was extremely impressed. If you have to stay in downtown Sacramento and would like an outstanding hotel that is centrally located I would recommend the Sheraton. Bravo.
I stayed at the Grand Sheraton for the Cal State Fair. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Since we are Starwood members we got to stay on the club floor which was very nice and the views from the room were great with oversized windows. The parking was a bit much with $21.00 for valet and $12.00 for self park, but other than that the hotel was very nice and I will stay there on my next Sacramento visit!
We stayed at the Sheraton Grand the first weekend of June 2004. We got an awesome $69 rate off of hotwire.com.
Great Buffet Breakfasts
We stayed in the Hotel for three nights in November last year and found it suitable to all our needs. The rooms were comfortable, with views of Sacramento, the staff were friendly, everything was ok. Would recommend but the hotel was a little pricey.
We stayed here for two nights recently. We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable and the service friendly and fast. The decor was pretty good, and the window seats provide a nice place to comfortably look out over Sacramento. The room service food was decent. As noted by another reviewer, there is no mini-bar or refrigerator.
We just stayed this past weekend at the Sheraton. We were impressed with the ambiance of the Hotel, attentiveness of the staff and the tasteful decor. Our room was attractive and very clean. The beds and pillows super comfortable. Room service was prompt and the food cooked perfectly. We were so pleased we are making reservations at another Sheraton for a upcoming business trip. I operated my own bed and breakfast for 10yrs and often find myself disappointed in the cleanliness and attention to details in places we stay.I give high marks to the cleaning staff at The Sacramento Sheraton. Even the toilet paper was folded properly!!!!! On a previous visit to the area we had stayed at the Hyatt Regency around the corner from the Sheraton. The accommodations do not compare. When we visit the Sacramento the Sheraton will be our first choice.
Sacramento Sheraton Grand
They have marvelous beds but the rooms are very small. We stayed two nights and the coffee, water and other items were not replaced for the second day as other hotels do. No refrigerator or VCR. The desk attendants were very nice.
My husband and I stayed here two separate nights over the Thanksgiving weekend this year, 11/26 and 11/29. I must say...what a great hotel! I moved away from Sacramento in 1998 before this hotel and the new Embassy Suites were built and I have to say that Sacramento has definitely taken a step in the right direction when it comes to downtown accommodations. Previously, you were stuck with the Hyatt unless you wanted to travel up towards Arden Fair Mall (and even then the Hilton and Doubletree are average at best) or stay in one of the older, more neutral motels downtown. Valet parking was very easy and check-in was also painless although, both nights it seemed as though the front desk people (different people each night) were rehearsing a pre-written speech...it didn't feel very personal, you know? The rooms were wonderful...the bed reminded me of that whole "Heavenly Bed" thing at Westin...comfy! The furnishings were nice and the window seat is a nice, homey touch. We were on the 20th floor facing west the first night and the 19th the second night, facing south. Our first night we ordered room service since it was 9 p.m., we were still on TX time and were starved. The food was delivered quickly and the server had a smile on his face. All in all, this was a great trip! We may try the Embassy Suites next time but this hotel is definitely at the top of our list when staying in Sacramento.
SERVICE GOOD, ATMOSPHERE - ??
The Sheraton was a little understaffed when we arrived but attempted to compensate for it. Staff was very attentive when they had the time.
Convenience store closed 2 hours early when we needed something from them.
Overall the ambiance was that of a warehouse. Not really warm and friendly. Rather stark.
Sheraton Grand Excellent Downtown Hotel
Up-to-date full service hotel downtown - blocks from Capitol. Have stayed there 3 times and have always had an excellent room and great service. Significantly better than the Hyatt Regency. Sheraton has a huge wide open lobby area with bar, restaurant, check in. Hyatt is chopped up and rooms are old.
