The Greens Hotel Sacramento California
On a recent road trip to Southern California, we
decided to make Sacramento our midway stop from
Seattle. After a long 11 hours on the road, we were
looking for a comfortable yet unique experience
and we defi nitely found it in The Greens Hotel.
For those unfamiliar with the Arts and Business District
of North Sacramento, it is a little tricky to locate.
Trust your GPS on this. Even with the interesting
pictures on their website, we weren’t quite sure what
to expect. What we found was a delightful oasis in an
If not for the modern outdoor furniture, super-sized
planters and eye-catching, brightly painted letters
hanging in front of each room, you would think you
were traveling a back in time when you drove into
the complex. Entering our room, we were instantly
entranced with the chic, minimalist look and feel.
Lime green walls, modern furnishing, and black and
white artwork. It was quite the eye-opener after taking
in the Zen-friendly, mesh solar-canopied courtyard,
and the retro-fi tted 50-s era motel facade.
The eclectic hotel room came with the amenities of a
fi ve star hotel chain with its satellite television on a
fl at screen TV, a refrigerated mini-bar complimentary
wireless, hi-speed internet access and luxurious high
thread-count linens. Comfortable bathrobes hung in
the closet and the walk-in shower was spacious and
stocked with green-branded toiletries. We enjoyed
an evening swim in the lap pool, spending a lot of
time determining where to fi nd dinner with numerous
options available to us from several neighborhood
restaurants to the popular chain restaurants at the
nearby Arden Fair Mall down Arden Way.
While the hotel sits a short walk away from a busy
light rail station, our stay was quiet and comfortable
and the friendly staff was helpful and accommodating.
The complex offers overnight gated parking so you
can rest easy. But it was the unique touches like the
design-forward furniture, the aluminum Dutch doors,
the artwork by emerging California artists and book
collections for your reading pleasure that made this
hotel wonderfully exceptional.
