The Old Sacramento Waterfront is minutes from the train station and a great place to see old locomotives and riverboats. One of the latter, the Delta King, was even transformed into the most unique hotel in Sacramento. The staterooms on the boat – built in 1927 – have been refurbished to blend a taste of the past with modern standards. The Captain’s Quarters is a suite occupying the former wheelhouse (the wheel is still visible), with a wraparound veranda, a wet bar and expansive riverfront views.
