"Great Centrally Located Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Had a three night stay during our honeymoon. Hotel was very centrally located in the gas quarter. Had a really great stay-room was spotlessly clean and spacious and looked out on the pool on the fifth floor. Free drinks at reception every day from 5-6pm was a great feature. Staff were great and really helpful. Overall a great stay and a brilliant base for exploring San Diego!

I can't praise this hotel enough. The level of customer service and attention to detail was phenomenal. Beautiful modern facilities per Kimpton branding. I believer good effort and service deserves praise so thank you Elanne and HH crew, thank you Anna G for the lovely handwritten and thoughtful note and CHAMPAGNE!!, the nite from housekeeping and glad I was able to personally thank the manager Casey for her obvious leadership or environment she's creating to make an awesome experience. [No I don't know anyone that works for Kimpton or was I paid to write this...truly my personal experience here]. Thank you.

"Loved our visit!"

We often stay at Kimptons, this is probably my favorite. Loved our room, we had a wonderful view, and it was spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom could have used a shelf, and I was disappointed in the soap and shampoo dispensers--I had to pump about 20 times to get enough shampoo to wash my (very short) hair, the body wash was just as bad. These need to be replaced. Very minor glitch, though. The coffee downstairs in the morning was excellent! We have many times been disappointed at the Kimpton coffee, but whoever is in charge of coffee....many, many thanks! They also had several different newspapers, and some small bites of coffee cake. Great way to start the day. We also availed ourselves of the happy hour every day we were there, it was also excellent! Unlike most Kimptons, they offered both wine and beer (and they offered a very good local IPA and pilsner on tap...again many, many thanks!) The people who were staffing the happy hour were exceptionally nice, and even recommended restaurants and things to do in the area. The lady who passed out snacks was also a treat. Believe it or not, the days we stayed were grey and chilly, so we did not use the pool, but it seemed really nice, and one afternoon we did sit at the bar and listen to some nice live music. The location can't be beat, loved the area. We stayed mid-week, right after school started, and it was blessedly easy to get into bars and restaurants without contending with the party crowd. We would stay here again without hesitation. Thank you Kimpton Solamar, and your wonderful staff!

"Very nice hotel but avoid the restaurant"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 21, 2017 NEW
The hotel has a young fashionable vibe. NOT a family location. The nightly drinks reception in the lounge is a particularly welcome opportunity to meet fellow couples. This is a pet friendly hotel, don't be surprised to find a Doberman / Alsation in the corridor or hairs in the bedroom from the last guest! Overall we very much enjoyed a 10 night stay, however avoid the restaurant for breakfast or dinner. The service is painfully slow. There are much better places only yards away

Hotels in a place like San Diego are an interesting decision. We contemplated the Pendry and some 5 star luxury. But at the end of the day were very glad we plumped for the Kimpton Solamar. We knew that with the traditional SD weather we were NOT going to spend too much time in the hotel anyway, so paying for 5 start appendages seemed silly. The Kimpton delivered exactly what we were seeking. A great room, in a great location, with decent amenities and fabulous staff. Well Done Kimpton Solamar. % great nights. Staff were friendly, room cleaning was prompt and efficient and the room had almost everything you need. I say almost because of my only gripe. The bathroom products (which were brilliant) were in wall mounted dispenser. On day one i assumed the shampoo was empty and complained. I realised later that it was not empty at all - but the push down dispenser nozzle for both shampoo and shower wash were so hideously inefficient that you could expend a million calories pumping them to no avail. That being said. We loved our stay. It is also a really nice touch that between 6 and 10am they have a free coffee station in the lobby. Claudia used to send me down to get her coffee while she plucked up the courage to emerge from bed and get into the shower! I would recommend this to anyone. We didn't do the pool. We didn't eat here either. So no comments on that. but as a nice room in a nice location - absolute winner. Well done again Kimpton Solamar.
