We are staying a more and more Kimptons as we are finding the level of service is superior and the accomadations are clean as well as updated. Solamar is as expected from the time we arrived and had our room available early. Location in Gaslamp is right in the middle of the action, a block away from Petco and walking distance to whatever you want. Happy hour is a great perk. Valet parking fee is a bit steep but is the same as all the other hotels in the area. We stayed for 3 nights and had a flawless stay.

Another great Kimpton stay! Thank you for sharing your experience with the world. I'm really happy that you enjoyed our downtown location - despite the downtown parking!

I have nothing but kind words for this property and staff. From the first contact to the very last, we were made to feel very welcome and no request was too much nor did we feel they were going out of their way for us. These people are very professional and caring.

Stayed for 2 nights before embarking on a cruise, staff very friendly and helpful with excellent restaurant on site. Valet parking for 49 dollars a night, but parking is available at cheaper rates close by. In the middle of the Gaslight district so a wide choice of restaurants and night life all within walking distance, Swimming pool open for the summer months with bar and cabanas available. Dogs are welcome and the hotel has its own dog to meet and greet you.

I absolutely love this hotel and would stay here again in a heartbeat!!! The beds were sooo comfortable!!!

The reasons I give it a 4 and not a 5 are because they don’t have a closet to hang clothes and the room badge tends to get deactivated easily. But really, these are minor points.

Hi Michele D, Glad you enjoyed your stay and our amazingly comfortable beds! We have closets in every single room in the hotel equipped with robes, a yoga mat and plenty of space to hang clothing. Maybe you thought the door in the room was a connecting door? Thanks for the review and we'll see you next time. Justin- AGM

Located in the Gas Lamp district the Solamar provided the true Kimpton experience. Each and every staff member I spoke with was friendly and helpful. All provided Excellent Service and again the location was perfect. Look forward to staying there on my next visit to San Diego.
