The History of Hotel Sutter

The Hotel Sutter’s earliest incarnation was known as the American House, built on this site in 1852. During the height of California’s gold-rush, the property served as both a stage stop for the Adams & Company Express and a central meeting place for locals to catch up on the day’s events. With the fire of 1865, nearly all of Sutter Creek’s business district burned to the groundꟷincluding portions of the American House. It was eventually rebuilt as the American Exchange Hotel.

Steeped in history, the Hotel Sutter hosts visitors from all over the region, state and world, who want to experience the historical landmarks, outdoor recreational activities, award-winning wineries and quaint restaurants and boutiques that abound in Sutter Creek, and throughout the gold country towns of Amador County.

Beyond offering travelers a comfortable and unique place to call home while enjoying the rich history of the area, the Hotel Sutter continues to serve as a regular meeting place for locals, who treasure the long-standing traditions and historical elegance that the property offers.

Today, the property offers 21 uniquely appointed guest rooms and an elegant banquet room that doubles as a private meeting space for up to 100 people. Equipped with modern technology and located directly adjacent to the kitchen and saloon, the banquet room is a perfect location for personal or corporate events.
