Step back in time to 1879 when the Gold Rush was in full swing, Amador City was a bustling mining town, and the Imperial Hotel opened its doors to prosperous Victorian hotel guests. Today the miners are gone, but Amador City retains its historic character, and the beautifully restored Imperial Hotel still offers a warm and gracious welcome to visitors to the Gold Country.
Local residents and visitors mingle over cocktails in the Oasis Bar. Hotel guests sip a glass of wine or cup of tea on the balcony overlooking the town or on the secluded native stone patio. A book or magazine selected from the hotel library leads to an afternoon of lazy inactivity.
Spend an afternoon visiting the many award-winning, family-owned small wineries in nearby Shenandoah Valley and Fair Play (no charge for wine tasting at most of the wineries in our part of the world!) Browse the antique and specialty shops in Amador City and Sutter Creek. Return to our regionally acclaimed restaurant for a relaxing meal featuring locally grown produce, fresh meats and sustainably harvested seafood.
Then simply retire to one of our nine handsome air-conditioned rooms with private baths and look forward to a full gourmet breakfast in the morning. Life at it's absolute best!
