The Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza is a full service, upscale 16-floor high rise in the heart of Old Sacramento. Located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, major corporate and state office buildings.

A Brief History of Old Sacramento

On August 13, 1839, John Sutter landed on the shore of the American River near its confluence with the Sacramento River. With the promise of a Mexican land grant, Sutter and his landing party established Sutter's Fort. As the settlement grew and became permanent, it attracted other businessmen looking for opportunities

Sam Brannan established a store near the Sacramento River hoping to take advantage of the convenient waterfront location. The embarcadero flourished and was the prime trading center for miners outfitting themselves for the gold fields.

In the mid-1960's, a grand plan to redevelop the area was begun. Today, with 53 historic buildings, Old Sacramento probably has more buildings of historic value condensed into its 28 acres than any area of similar size in the west. Old Sacramento is a National Landmark and a portion is designated as a State Historic Park.
