The Hallmark Inn at UC Davis was the largest hotel centrally located in the the heart of Downtown Davis with 120 rooms and suites. It was within walking distance of UC Davis, art galleries, an array of restaurants, and an award-winning Farmer's Market. For those visitors interested in the Mondavi Center for the Arts, Institute for Wine & Food Science, UC Davis Extension or any of the many entertainment options in bike friendly Davis, the hotel offered free bicycle rentals to guests!

In 1998, the hotel was renovated with a new lobby, bar and breakfast room to become Hallmark Inn. Seasons restaurant opened next door in 2003 replacing Lyons. The hotel underwent a full renovation of all hotel guestrooms and suites in 2009. In 2013, a beautiful new lobby and gallery space was added along with on-site Cafe 110 and a variety of retail spaces. Hallmark Inn was owned by the Youmans family and was part of the local property management company, Hallmark Properties. Prior to becoming Hallmark Inn, it was a Ramada during the 1980s.

A Hilton Garden Inn has now taken its place.

2008-05-10 18:30:18   It seems that the Hallmark Inn has undergone a series of upgrades over the past year. I've stayed here several times over the past two years, and last weekend when I was there I discovered that the big old televisions in the rooms have been replaced with wall-mounted flat screen TVs. This is a welcome change as the old televisions were the annoying type where they'd be extremely loud every time you'd turn them on. The phones have also been replaced, I'm pretty sure the bedding is new, and there is definitely new paint on the walls. Overall this place is a lot nicer now than the last time I was there, which was actually just last summer. —OscarSabino
