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.

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 one of two native stone patios. A book or magazine selected from the hotel library leads to an afternoon of lazy inactivity.
