I attended a 2 day class that was hosted at the Hotel Solamar. The class was LONG and I really appreciated staying someplace that was conveniently located, well-appointed and hassle free.
This hotel is located in the Gaslight district. Fantastic restaurants and bars all within walking distance. You can also walk easily to PetCo Park.
Our lunch during the class was served on the 4th floor pool area each day. The food was delicious and iIt was wonderful to be able to be outside enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather in February!
The rooms were nice with comfortable beds. The windows actually open...another plus with the great weather.
I found the staff to be very attentive. They hosted a coffee bar and wine happy hour each day in the lobby.
The only downside was that there was no view of the bay from the hotel. I was on the 6th floor, so there may have been on higher floors. This wasn't a big deal since I was there on business, but if I were on vacation, I would want to see the water.
