As a third party planner I strive to bring my clients to top tier properties where I know they will be treated as first class customers. The Hotel Solamar has delivered time and time again. Great accommodations, fantastic food, service and staff always at their best, and an amazing location in the heart of downtown San Diego.

I have worked with the Hotel Solamar for the good part of ten years placing large corporate and pleasure groups for meetings and events. Not only is it a beautiful and unique hotel with an incredibly, quaint and fun atmosphere, but the staff at the hotel is extraordinary. They are helpful, friendly and professional. I never worry when placing my most important clients at the Solamar. I have also enjoyed the Solamar as a guest. My visits have always been superior. I am always welcomed and made to feel as if I am home. - Rachel C/Manager Global Accounts at HelmsBriscoe

The Hotel Solamar in San Diego offers a fantastic stay in a beautiful city. The location can't be beat and is in the heart of the Gaslamp district. The service and staff are superb. We have attended numerous events at this property and everything has always been top notch. I can't wait for my next stay. It is great when you find a gem that continues to be a gem with each visit. I just had the opportunity to book a corporate group in this hotel and everyone is excited about their upcoming stay. Yay!

Clean Rooms, great Gas Lamp District location. A Short walk to may eateries, bars and the Padre's stadium. Its also walkable to the convention center. Parking is $55 per night, but secure and underground (worth every cent!). Very friendly staff.

The Upper East rooftop bar at the Hotel Solamar San Diego is always a great experience and it has a fantastic location and vibe to "tailgate" before a Padre's home game. It has a private elevator from the street level and is only a 2 block walk to Petco Park. Great outdoor experience for post game celebrations as well!

Hello Paul, If you're looking for a spot to gear up for a Padre's game, you can bet that the rooftop bar at Solamar San Diego will always knock it out of the park. Thank you so much for the fantastic review. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best, Solamar Management Team

This hotel has it all. In the bustle of a big city and happening downtown, the minute you step into this hotel you feel like you're home. It's quaint, with a stunning rooftop bar perfect for events or just a sunset cocktail. The vibe of the property is welcoming with super fast service. Welcoming, clean, updated, modern with the PERFECT location.

Had a not so great stay the first time. Reached out to hotel management to tell them of my experience and they were so generous and understanding they offered me a promotion on a follow up stay. The property was great! Would definitely go back. Located in a great and accessible area as well. Amenities were first class.

We came to San Diego to visit the San Diego zoo for my sons 2nd birthday. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay special. We let the receptionist know why we were there and the next morning they had a goodie bag for my son with a birthday card and they took the time to draw him animals and wish him a happy birthday. My son absolutely loved it! The hotel was clean and the food was great! My son enjoyed the late evening swims at the pool. The location is perfect and the zoo was about 10 minutes away.
