Considering Le Rivage Hotel, at 4800 Riverside Blvd. I've read reviews on Tripadvisor, but don't recall much about the area from previous visits to Sac. Looks like a nice area, mainly residential, right along the Sac River, though perhaps a bit far from restaurants, etc. other than those in the hotel. Likely alternative is to use Hotwire to stay at one of the nice downtown hotels (possibly Hyatt or Sheraton).

It's a relatively nice quiet area, very safe, a mid-century neighborhood called "The Pocket," but it's very isolated from restaurants and other amenities. The hotel is quite fancy but more intended for people who want to "get away from it all" vs. someone who wants to be downtown and check out local spots.

Thanks for the input. I am a little concerned about its isolation, meaning we'd have to drive to any restaurant other than the one in the hotel, and any stores, but that could apply to many hotels.

Youir concerns are right on the money. If you stay at the Sheraton, Citizen or other downtown hotel you have dozens of restaurants, cafes, shops and other attractions within a few blocks, including museums and theaters. Le Rivage is for folks who don't want to leave the hotel.

Thanks for the advisory. Right now we're still panning on Le Rivage, since my wife wants to relax, and we'll likely be driving in our rental car to other areas (shopping, and house-hunting) no matter where we stay. But we can cancel up to 24 hours before check-in, so will still consider downtown.

Le Rivage is nice. My wife goes to the Spa every couple of months to recharge. I drop her off head to the Casino's and then come back to eat dinner with her at Scott's.

Its our Vegas but not in Vegas day as we like to call it.

Not much around. Again its Sacrmento so Downtown is 5-10 minutes away.

We stayed at Le Rivage for our first 3 nights, and it turned out to be a good choice, with a relaxing view of the Sac River from our room (I'm glad we didn't go for one of thier "park view" rooms, which appeared to have great views-- of Interstaste 5). We'd probably return to the hotel. Yes, you do need a car, though I used their free car service to go to a pharmacy the first night there.
