The Delta King Riverboat Hotel is a historic paddlewheel steamboat that has been transformed into a hotel and restaurant. Originally built in 1927 by the California Transportation Company, the Delta King operated as a passenger and freight vessel on the Sacramento River between Sacramento and San Francisco.

In the mid-20th century, with the decline of river travel, the Delta King fell into disuse and was eventually retired. However, in the 1980s, the vessel was restored and reopened as a hotel and restaurant in Old Sacramento, offering guests a unique and nostalgic experience. Today, the Delta King Riverboat Hotel stands as a living piece of history, providing a charming and historical accommodation option for visitors to the Sacramento area.
