The Kimpton Solamar is located in 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.

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."

Jsix, the on-site Californian restaurant, is highly acclaimed by locals and visitors alike and is regularly included in Zagat lists, such as San Diego's Best for Farm-to-Table.

For the price, the pool should have been heated - it was quite cold. Room could have made a few more towels available.

Promoted my favorite champagne at happy hour that started at 5 PM. I got there at 540 and they were pouring what they said was the last bottle because they'd already poured for bottles. Happy hour supposed to last till 8 PM. They had no substitutions for the champagne. Kids, barely out of their teens seem to be running the whole place. $49 for overnight parking.
