I stayed here while visiting Northern California. The embassy suites in downtown is one of the better hotels in Sacramento. Our room had a pretty cool view of the river and bridge. Walking distance to old Sacramento to celebrate Halloween as well as kings game and Macy’s. The only thing that bothered me was the fire drill at 1 AM and we had to stand outside in the freezing cold for 20 minutes and didn’t even get an apology from the hotel. But that’s a bizarre occurrence.
A fire alarm went off at the hotel at 1am. That happens -- but, the staff was untrained and not helpful. Every guest went into the street -- we weren't told where to go, what was happening, or -- importantly -- when to return to the hotel. After about 30 minutes, everyone just began walking in by themselves. Had this been a real emergency (maybe it was -- we never knew) it was wholly unacceptable to get NO INSTRUCTION AT ALL. You're on your own. If safety is important to you, DO NOT STAY AT THIS PROPERTY.
