A hotel has been here since 1852, though several have burned to the ground--in fact, in 1865 the whole town burned down! The current incarnation was built out of stone and has been here since the early 1900s. In those earlier days, the 7:30 a.m. stagecoach to San Francisco left from right in front. Impromptu trials and hangings also occurred there. The current owners have completed an extensive renovation and are continuing to uncover hidden bricks and woodwork. Guest rooms are on the second and third floors, and each is decorated attractively in deep jewel tones and holds a bed covered with an elegant handcrafted quilt

The Hotel Sutter Restaurant offers fine dining on the ground floor. The Lobby Bar is a sweet place to whet your whistle, the Balcony bar offers prime seats for watching over the town action, and The Cellar subterranean lounge is outfitted with comfortable puffy chairs and schedules live music on weekends.
