The Hotel Solamar is placed in the midst of the Gaslamp Quarter, packed with a buzzing nightlife scene, great restaurants and the city's best shopping. Catch a Padres' game at Petco Park and stroll to the bayfront for views of Coronado Island.

On weekends the hotel caters to an under 30's clientele with Vegas-style parties on the rooftop pool deck. Expect to hear noise when this crowd returns at 2 a.m. from a night out on the town.

Midweek business travelers will feel right at home in the comfortable sea-themed rooms with calm lighting, Italian Frette linens, a pillow menu, yoga kits and in-room spa services.  

Bonus perks include complimentary bike rentals and a evening social hour with craft beers and wines from 5-6 p.m. daily. Kimpton Karma Rewards members receive free Wi-Fi at the hotel (it's free to sign up). 

Of all the amenities, Conde Nast Traveler touts the friendly staff as this hotel's best attribute with their "ultra-laid-back yet efficient attitude which permeates the best of sun-splashed San Diego."
