Imperial Hotel

14202 Highway 49 PO Box 212, Amador City, CA 95601 USA (Show map)


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.

Charming Hotel with the feeling of the old Gold Country

3.6 on May 10, 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at the Imperial Hotel. The rooms are good-sized and decorated in keeping with the Gold Country theme. Nice sized bathrooms, too. Everything very clean. Our room had a screen in the window and we were able to leave it open and listen to the frogs at night:) Breakfast was included, and it was very good - a quiche with a side of fresh fruit. The breakfast menu (for the public) had many interesting choices, so we were a little disappointed that we were not given a choice. We would stay here again.

An enjoyable stay at the Imperial hotel

We have stayed in the Imperial hotel a number of times - always enjoyable, with plenty of character in this updated 19th century building, wonderful food in the restaurant and very friendly service from Mary Ann and her staff. A great value!

Our favorite spot!

Amador City is a gem, with the best options for hiking and biking in the region. And Imperial Hotel never disappoints!

Great getaway

A six room gold rush vintage hotel with a quaint little bar, a very nice breakfast, pleasant on-site dinners, cordial staff and a neat little town - what's not to like??

Charming Hotel with a Boutique Feel

4.6 on April 03, 2017

My husband and I stayed in room one. The room includes access to and seating on the balcony, and affords a great view of Amador City. If you are visiting on a Wednesday, you can enjoy happy hour and music, along with the view. Staff is friendly, creating a welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast is also included. The Imperial Hotel also is a great location for visiting many of the wineries in the area.

A Wonderful Weekend Getaway

4.2 on February 28, 2017

The Imperial is a beautiful, wonderfully restored old building in a quaint old town that doesn't look like it's changed much since the Gold Rush days. The room was clean and comfortable, and the antique furniture, decorations, and exposed brick lent a very rustic feel to our stay. The breakfast (omelet with some fresh fruit and a croissant) was tasty but it wasn't anything special, and I would've preferred a little more food. The kitchen was also a little slow. That said, we stayed during the off-season (end of February) and we were the only people there for the weekend; perhaps service would have been better if there were some more guests. All in all, we were very happy with our stay at the Imperial and we would definitely stay there again!

Fantastic Weekend
