Designed to celebrate California's lively culture, the Hotel Del Sol is a cheerful explosion of the West Coast spirit. Once a 50s-style motor lodge, it has been newly transformed to offer the stylings and personalized service of a boutique hotel. The spacious guestrooms evoke the bright and airy interior of a California beach house. Relaxing hammocks, a sparkling pool and towering palm trees in the courtyard is a colorful feast for the eyes.

Neighborhood
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.

My wife, two daughters, and I stayed at Del Sol from Jan. 17th - 20th and I must say we definitely enjoyed our stay from start to finish! The pool was heated and my daughters enjoyed swimming in the middle of January! The surrounding neighborhood around Del Sol is very safe

Stayed here before riding down to Los Angeles. The staff is wonderful. The location is close to a number of great restaurants, coffee shops and tram and trolley lines. Would definitely stay here again.

there's only so much you can do to make things nice when the structure and bones of the rooms are old and shabby; this was a hotel where I felt I had to keep my shoes or socks on because everything seemed so grimy

Is the hotel under construction? If so, when is it planned on being complete?
Sorry for late response. I’m new to this aspect of trip advisor :-). The pool was under construction during our visit but I’m sure it’s done now.
