Is it “capital” or “capitol?” What’s in a name? It depends. The “a” is technically the city, and the “o” is technically the building. The Capitol is the seat of the Government of California, and, according to Wikipedia, “houses the chambers of the California State Legislature, made up of the Assembly and the Senate, along with the office of the governor of California”.
The building was designed by Reuben S. Clark, and was completed in 1874. It is located at the east end of the Capitol Mall and the west end of the Capitol Park. In 1973 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Situated in the grounds is also the California State Capitol Museum.

A Very Big City
Sacramento is a very big city, with a population of just over ½ a million, so you could be visiting or working at any one of hundreds of other businesses in or near the city or even in the suburbs, but you are just one of those people who likes the hustle and bustle of city life and prefer to live there.
No matter the reason, if you are looking for Sacramento short term rentals near the Capitol, then come and talk to us a Key Housing Connections.

Of course, there are also hotels available in the city centre, but hotel prices are astronomical. Not only that, living in a cramped hotel room for any length of time is no fun at all, even if it is in the city center.
