National Register of Historic Places in Sacramento County
The Travelers' Hotel was designed by the architectural Cuff & Diggs.
When the hotel opened in May, 1914, it was one of the finest and most modern hotels on the Pacific Coast. The unusual E-shape of the six-story building allowed all 226 rooms to face outside and was copied from the famous St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. Sacramento residents often referred to the Travelers' as "the little St. Francis" due to the similarity of style.
