The Delta King Hotel in Old Sacramento is a unique Sacramento treasure. The authentic riverboat plied the Sacramento River between San Francisco and Sacramento from 1927 to 1940. During World War II it served as a troop transport on San Francisco Bay. After the war the Delta King became a derelict roaming the Delta, without purpose or home. It sank at Richmond in San Francisco Bay in 1982 for a period of 18 months.In 1984 the Delta King was brought to Sacramento where it underwent an extraordinary renovation at a cost of $9 million. Today it is a beautiful floating hotel with modern lodging amenities, 2 acclaimed restaurants offering casual and fine dining, 2 professional theaters, a wine school and exceptional facilities for weddings and meetings.The Delta King is the best of the old world and the new. Experience old world charm and service complimented by modern amenities and acclaimed cuisine.
I enjoyed a dinner with a lady friend of mine. The Duck Confit was remarkable. Prices were definitely less than I'd imagined.
Setting was unique in the fact you don't see many Riverboats outside of the Mississippi River. Being from New Orleans I wanted to see what it was like out west on the boats and found it to actually be a much more comfortable and amiable environment.
Surely will be a place to take friends and family again..Great food good prices easy to get to from the Bay area. 5 stars it gets from me.
