The property is owned by Presidio Companies and managed by Evolution Hospitality, the lifestyle operating division of Aimbridge Hospitality.
Hyatt Centric Downtown Sacramento, located in the heart of the city, provides a launchpad for travelers to discover all that Sacramento has to offer including historical landmarks, an eclectic dining scene, trendy shopping, vibrant nightlife, and Old Sacramento Waterfront activities. Located adjacent to the Golden 1 Center and Downtown Commons (DOCO), the hotel boasts 172 guestrooms and suites, 2,000 square feet of meeting space and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The thoughtful amenities combined with the location’s history as an integral part of the Sacramento jazz community, makes the property a can’t-miss stay for business and leisure travelers alike.
“This property is brimming with details that nods to the sparkling past, while celebrating the future of the destination through a playful interpretation of local culture, art, and points of interest,” said Guneet Bajwa, managing principal, Presidio Companies. “We are honored to present this hotel to a new generation of guests and look forward to seeing the hotel assume its rightful place at the center of Sacramento’s bustling downtown scene.”

As experts in operating unique properties, each with one-of-a-kind stories to tell, we are confident the experience we’re creating will translate into memorable stays for guests.”
The original hotel’s rich history dates back to 1911, when it first opened as the five story Hotel Clayton. In 1939, it became Hotel Marshall, named after James W. Marshall, who discovered gold in the American River that sparked the California Gold Rush. For 30 years, through the 1920s to 1950s, Hotel Marshall was the jewel in the crown of Sacramento’s vivacious music and jazz scene. The stage in the hotel lobby’s famed Clayton Club saw the era’s biggest acts including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and Cab Calloway.
Now, standing at eleven stories high, the new hotel has preserved two of the original facades and celebrates the property’s past with shareable moments at every turn. From Marshall amps stacked behind the front desk, to hand-painted murals of famous musicians in guestroom closets and music studio inspired light fixtures throughout the hotel, guests are whisked away into the glamour of yesteryear while still enjoying modern comforts.
The Clayton Club rooftop lounge located on the sixth floor pays homage to the prohibition era and the music scene the original Clayton Club entertained. Native Sacramentan and integral member of the farm-to-fork movement, chef Ravin Patel helms the kitchen and showcases his mastery of small plates that celebrate the melting pot of cuisines in the region alongside unique craft cocktails. On the ground level, The 7th Street Standard Restaurant, an American restaurant and bar also led by chef Patel, features a breathtaking bar and dining room with high style cues from the golden age of the hotel and is open for dinner and brunch seven days a week.
