Sacramento, California: Wall of Drinking Fountains (Gone)

Inside the Sheraton Grand Hotel a sequence of nine drinking fountains apparently was a work of art, not a safety contingency for a jalapeno popper crisis.

Sheraton Grand Hotel

From Route 5 North, take J Street exit and head east into Sacramento. A few blocks on the right you get to Sheraton Grand Hotel, 1230 J Street, Sacramento, CA. Water fountains are on the second floor near the elevator entrance to a restaurant inside the hotel.

Drinking Water Fountains

Thirsty in Sacramento, California? Quench your thirst at a row of nine drinking fountains along one wall inside the Sheraton Grand Hotel. Bizarre, but it's great modern art.
