The Sterling Hotel Review: Only three blocks from the Capitol, this imposing white Queen Anne Victorian, with its ornate gables, bay windows and rounded turret, is one of Sacramento's most exclusive venues. Its manicured gardens and romantic Sterling Ballroom make it an extremely popular wedding spot. Remodeled in 1995, the hotel has all the modern amenities guests might expect, such as a full-service restaurant, on-site catering and audio-visual services. Although it provides all the amenities of a grand hotel, this inn is as charming as a cozy bed and breakfast. Décor is romantic Victorian but is carefully restrained and never cluttered. All 17 rooms come with high ceilings, four-poster canopy beds, Italian marble bathrooms and fresh flowers. Many also feature fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs.
