Hotel Description

Located in the booming Gaslamp quarter, and just a block from the new baseball stadium that’s driving this city-center renaissance, Kimpton Solamar Hotel is the first San Diego venture for the San Francisco-based group — a group that’s busy exporting its funky yet accessible aesthetic all over the US and western Canada.

As such it’s a fine first entry; faultlessly placed, in the midst of San Diego’s nightlife and entertainment district, the Solamar is suited for business travelers, vacationing families, baseball fans, and would-be hipsters, all in equal measure. In classic Kimpton style the interiors are just stylish enough, never off-putting, in playful browns and blues, furnished in a manner that’s contemporary but short of avant-garde.

In terms of comforts the Solamar comes out ahead of the average design boutique: rooms are spacious, beds robust and plush, desks more than functional, bathrooms modern and well-equipped. Like all Kimpton hotels the Solamar is dog-friendly to the extreme, and humans aren’t neglected either — in-room spa treatments are available on request. The Gaslamp is dense with restaurants and bars, but the Solamar has its own: Jsix, serving coastal California cuisine, and Upper East Bar, which presumably aims to channel its Manhattan neighborhood namesake with artisanal cocktails, shareable small plates, and a clear view of the skyline and the bay from the fourth-floor rooftop pool terrace.

Please note: Kimpton Solamar Hotel adds a nightly fee of $15 (plus tax) per room to all reservations. This fee includes wi-fi, phone service, nightly social hour (red wine, white wine, and craft beer), coffee, tea, select business center services, public bike rental pending availability, and yoga classes on the pool deck on select days.
