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.

10 Year Anniversary Trip

4.4 on May 11, 2015

Awesome trip to the Hwy 49 Gold and Wine Trail. Amador City was our base for first couple of days, and we absolutely loved it. The Imperial Hotel was the perfect place to stay, and we had an amazing room with a balcony overlooking town. What a gem. Peter, the General Manager, really cares about his guests, and he sets the standard for other employees. Anniversary dinner was outstanding - the rack of lamb was done perfectly. Great choice for accommodation - would definitely stay there again.

A slice of heavenly quiet

We chose to stay during the quiet time of the week. We had a lovely room with a balcony that overlooked Amador City. The quiet solitude suited us as we needed re-charging time. The dinner was excellent and as there where limited guests, service was spot on. The place seemed well organized and well run and if the place had been packed, I think it would have been the same. Great breakfast the next two morning. On our list to return.

SHHHH - Don't tell anyone!

The Imperial is a GEM. We still can't believe the experience we had for the price we paid. The rack of lamb was the best I've ever had...people were 5 star, facility clean, well-maintained, and had the feel of a 5 star, in a historic setting...

Great B&B

Had a wonderful Easter weekend here. Everything was fantastic. The food, the service, the room, everything !

Good, could be better

The ceiling fan in the room was intolerably loud, and there's no internet service in the cottage rooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful, breakfast service was very nice and dinner at the hotel was excellent. Fresh mint for our mojitos was picked from the garden right when we ordered, an impressive touch.

Great place for an Anniversary

Spent the night when the Irish band, Raggle Taggle, was playing. We retired early and were right over them .. no problem, still quiet! Gourmet breakfast was great tasting .. may not be enough for a hearty appetite.

Imperial Hotel is a unique gem in the Sierra foothills

What's not to like. Nicely appointed period rooms; friendly staff, quiet location (now that 49 is re-routed. Very nice breakfast included in room price, good range of dinner offerings, dining on the patio is great. Amador City itself is 'turning the corner' with respect to attractions. There are 3 going on 4 tasting rooms just steps form the hotel. And, for bakery and an excellent selection of picnic items, Andrae's is just down the street.

Great place to stay!

We went to the Chef's Dinner at the Hotel on a Friday night and stayed at the hotel. We had one of the cottage rooms (room 7), and it was very nice. A short walk away - it was private, quaint, quiet and very clean. The King bed was very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
