Best Addition to Downtown

The Citizen Hotel
926 J St., Sacramento; (916) 447-2700; jdvhotels.com
A dingy stretch of J Street gets a massive boost this fall with the highly anticipated opening of the city’s first high-rise boutique hotel. The developer, Joie de Vivre Hospitality of San Francisco, spent beaucoup bucks renovating the old Cal Western Life office building. A ground-floor restaurant called Grange opens later this year with acclaimed Atlanta chef Michael Tuohy at the helm.
