Beautifully restored historic hotel in the heart of California's Gold Country with a regionally acclaimed restaurant and full bar. Amador City retains the authentic feel of the late 19th century, but is just minutes from more than 30 wineries, golf, fishing, antique stores and much more.

Vacation in Amador

4.8 on June 15, 2016

We stayed (again) at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City during a Foothills wine tasting trip. It is a great base to explore the region and boasts an excellent restaurant as well. Mary Ann will make sure you are well cared for.

great B&B

We've stopped in Amador city to check out this cute little town, and fell in love with it!!! And we found some really cool stores their as well. So we decided to go back, and we stayed at the Imperial Hotel. It was great! Knowing I was going to be arriving late. I sent the hotel a email, asking how late their kitchen stays open? Maryanne texted me, asking my estimated arrival time might be? And I just had her pick us something to eat for when we got in. It was perfect! Loved the girls she had working that evening. They shared many stories of the hotels history with us and the other guests. It was a wonderfully ending of a long drive! Thanks Maryanne and Ladies

Lovely, Charming, and RELAXING

I've stayed at Imperial Hotel twice now. This time my husband and I booked one of the rooms with direct access to the balcony. It was the perfect get away from our busy lives. Quite and private, we enjoyed napping in the afternoons, reading in the mornings, dining on DELICIOUS treats from the restaurant. We'll be staying there, again!, in the future!

A Pleasant Experience

Both the tiny town and this historic hotel recall late 1800's California gold rush days. Both are charming and welcoming. The hotel floors are original and they squeak. But the hospitality is genuine and the rooms delightful. The attractive dining room provides a pleasant space for breakfast and dinner. And yes, the food is good.

An escape from it all

Wonderful experience staying at the Imperial Hotel - great dining experience and wonderful service. Peter the bar tender is always a good host and has lots of unique perspectives and shares the local history too. The surroundings are quaint and the neighborhood is something to come home too. We will be back!

This hotel is very charming, but doesn't feel outdated at all. The rooms were clean, and the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely come back!

The Imperial

4.4 on March 25, 2016

We have stayed at this historic hotel before and really enjoy going there. The ambiance of older historic buildings is wonderful. We stayed in room 1 which is the only one with a separate day bed for sleeping as well as direct access to the 2nd floor balcony. The young man at the bar and restaurant is very courteous and personable and truly cares about the customers. We didn't find the iwner to be very friendly or accomodating though. The rest of the staff were wonderful. Would stay there again.
