This is a fantastic hotel with a great ethos. Inviting and comfortable rooms, excellent location and friendly and helpful staff. Also ate the J6, all local and organic produce and great food.

Stayed 4 nights during the last week of July 2011. Some things great, a few things need some work.
Pros: Great people working valet, desk etc. Half priced valet parking if driving a hybrid car. Very nice morning and happy hour setup in lobby. Great location to lots of activities, food, drink,nightlife right outside the hotel, small but cozy pool area with heated pool, nice loungechairs, towels etc
Cons: rooms are adequate but lacking any drawer space. some of the bathrooms favor style over function, ic ouldn't use the sink without splashing everything on the vanity. Lastly, I joined the Kimpton loyalty program with promises of free wifi. Over my entire stay, could never get it working, including using their free sign on for guests. Not a huge deal, but with their business center outsourced to a private company, you have to pay for any computer time beyond printing boarding passes. That's kind of weak

Stayed in San Diego for a long weekend and needed a hotel close to the convention center. Hotel Solamar was it and I couldn't have done better. We had a suite and it was perfect. The hotel is in the gaslamp quarter, so easy access to all the restaurants and a minute walk to the convention center. The pool on the fourth floor is a bit small but who needs a pool when you have the ocean.

The Hotel Solamar seems best-suited for a briefer stay in San Diego's Gas Lamp Quarter, such as for a baseball game or two at Petco Park, which is walking distance. Our room seemed comfortable enough, but the closet was small, and there was virtually no drawer space, not really compensated for by the overly prominent mini-bar. The room lacked an in-room coffee maker, so every morning meant a hike down to the lobby to get coffee. DO ask for a room on Sixth Avenue....IF you enjoy late night subwoofer rumblings from the late night dance club across the street! Anyway, the next time we go to San Diego County, likely we'll choose somewhere in North County.

Hotel Solamar in San Diego is a class act! This place is very classy and comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms are luxurious! Very convenient to food, shopping and nightlife. I would definitely stay here again.
