1. Kimpton Sawyer Hotel: a luxurious boutique-style hotel near Old Sacramento

Bold yet classy, The Sawyer is an excellent hotel in Sacramento for both adventure seekers and business travelers alike. You’ll find The Sawyer in the heart of Downtown, the city’s financial and political hub. But historic Old Sacramento — filled with historic buildings, museums and attractions — is only about 10 minutes away on foot and trendy Midtown — with tons of coffee shops, restaurants and bars — is less than 10 minutes away by car. 

As for the hotel itself, The Sawyer boasts sleek decor and comfy furnishings, along with a slate of high-end amenities. Of particular note: the rooftop pool and Revival lounge-slash-bar are great for unwinding after a day of work or exploration, cocktail in hand. The pool deck also overlooks Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings and high-profile concerts.

Fora Perks at The Sawyer:

  • $50 hotel / resort credit.

  • Welcome amenity.

  • Upgrade & late check-out whenever possible.

2. Hyatt Centric Downtown Sacramento & Hyatt Regency Sacramento: two comfortable hotels overlooking cool city landmarks

Just across the street from Capitol Park and surrounded by many of the city’s best restaurants, shops and sights, Hyatt Regency Sacramento features lavish amenities and spacious guest rooms and suites. The decor is perhaps a bit simple, but the overall look and feel of this hotel is classy and pleasant. 

Rooms on higher floors can also enjoy expansive views of the California Capitol building and Sacramento skyline. 

If you prefer The Sawyer’s location, Hyatt Centric Downtown Sacramento is part of the same block next to Golden 1 Center. This Sacramento hotel features more of a boutique vibe with an Art Deco theme.

Connect with Fora to level up your stay at either Hyatt hotel.

Fora Perks at Hyatt Centric Downtown Sacramento:

  • Welcome amenity.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in whenever possible.

3. The Exchange Sacramento, Curio Collection by Hilton: a bold & eclectic Sacramento hotel housed in a historic high-rise

Featuring an vibrant color palette and eclectic decor, The Exchange is a fun boutique hotel just outside Old Sacramento. The amenities aren’t quite as extensive as our previous two choices, but this is still a great hotel whether you’re visiting the city on business or to check out the sights. 

Overall, the vibe veers between luxurious and whimsical, making for a unique experience.
