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. » Read D'Vine Magazine Article - Feb 2013
Described as “both elegant and whimsical”,
with a “rich, seductive opulence”,
the Imperial Hotel is a place where time does
not stand still, but it does slow down. 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.
