From beach to the city, there’s no shortage of options for quality hotels to accommodate the high volume of travelers that visit San Diego at any given time. Located in beautiful Gaslamp District, Kimpton Solamar is a standout property for luxury and hospitality. From check-in to check-out the service received went well beyond my expectations and was definitely the highlight of my visit.
First impression, the interior of the hotel is elegant and very well decorated. My group arrived at the hotel well before our available check-in time and the staff was more than accommodating. They were able to get us in substantially early and we were grateful for the smooth check-in. We were then greeted in our room by a bottle of wine, cheese board, and a personalized note addressed to me by the staff. Major points to them for the added touch! What a pleasant way to be welcomed after a long day of travel.
The room itself was very spacious and loaded with everything one needs for luxury travel. An additional value of the Kimpton Solamar is their complimentary Happy Hour in the lounge hosted daily from 5-6 pm. As you can imagine, I made sure to take advantage of this. It worked out flawlessly with the plans for the evening as we were able to indulge on pre-drinks, with a nice selection of wine and beer available, and appetizers before we ventured onto our next activity. Judging from the turnout, it’s an affair that few miss during their stay.
To sum it all up, my stay at Kimpton Solamar was short and sweet but I enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommend it the next time you are looking for accommodations in the Gaslamp District.
