This 15-story building was Sacramento’s first skyscraper. It was built in 1925 as the California Life Insurance building, now it is home to The Citizen Hotel. The hotel is a first rate luxury and boutique hotel, at least that’s what the Internet claims. It has 198 rooms, which are almost all unique in design and décor. The Citizen is also home to Grange Restaurant & Bar, which I visited with some friends. I would highly recommend this restaurant because the food was wonderful.
I found the hotel’s lobby by mistake when I left the restaurant’s dinning room to find the restroom. Once I stumbled upon the lobby, I knew I had to photograph it. By today’s standards the lobby is very small. You can’t tell by looking at my photo, but there isn’t much more to this setting. But as you can tell, it is an amazing spot with lots of rich fabrics, colors, and atmosphere.
