We had a wonderful three night stay in the Solamar over the new year holiday . it is a very welcoming hotel. It is a great idea to serve a complimentary glass of wine between 5 and 6 pm, it was great to sit down and relax after a days walking and sightseeing . The hotels is only a few metres from 5th avenue and all the restaurants and pubs- nightlife on the doorstep.
The hotel is modern,the decor is class with really comfortable beds. The most selection I have ever seen in a minbar and snack selection. We rang in the new year at the pool side party, which was for guests. We were probably one of the older couples at it- but there was a great atmosphere at it.
We had breakfast at the nearby Empty Yolk and took a walk to Cafe 222. We did the San Diego zoo and the martine museum . We took the trolley to the Mexican border and did some retail therapy at the outlet mall - (you get to it via the old pedestrian bridge ) The nautica outlet was worth the trip down.
If you are travelling here by train, it is the stop after downtown on Amtrak
Due to the distance,, we are unlikely to be back here, but we would highly recommend this hotel for a visit to San Diego
