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.

We stayed for one night and were pleased. Our cottage room was charming, and the attached bathroom was huge. The bed was like a cloud. Dinner and breakfast in their restaurant was delicious - the corn chowder was amazing!

Great stay! Great historic building! Wonderful & fun staff!

Amador City's Gem

4.0 on September 12, 2016

A stay at the Imperial Hotel is like a trip back in time to the Gold Rush days! Nicely appointed with antique furniture, yet complete with creature comforts like a jacuzzi bath tub, your stay at the Imperial will most certainly be memorable. And with Andrae's Bakery right down the street, you'll have a difficult decision choosing between a sumptuous scone or the Imperial's included breakfast.

Wife and I were celebrating our anniversary doing some wine tasting and after doing some research we stumbled onto a gem. The Imperial Hotel was a great stay. Rooms are beautiful in a great small city feel. The staff was warm and helpful and the food was outstanding. They had made a reservation at Taste for us and everything was great. Defiantly coming back!

Charming place

4.6 on September 04, 2016

As the categories suggest, almost everything about the Imperial was wonderful. The place was a paragon of understated elegance, a modern look acheived by highlighting the original architectural features, excellent service from reception to restaurant to bar. The room was exceptionally comfortable - even with three of us sharing. In terms of accomodation I doubt it oculd be better. The only niggle was the food, particularly breakfast, where the availability was infelxible and indeed minor requests were received with what may charitably called confusion. It was not the feeling we wanted to leave such a beautiful place with.

Great Stay

Very quiet and friendly staff, Wednesday a band played out on the front patio. Breakfast was great on both mornings.

Very nice hotel and restaurant

My husband and I needed to come to the area for business. The staff was really helpful with directions. The room (in the annex) was charming. We have a lovely meal in the restaurant. We will definitely return.
