Solamar-Gaslamp Quarter

Would recommend Fri, Jul 9, 2010
Everyone was nice, room was comfortable, location was excellent. Wish they would have vacuumed atleast twice during our 4-night stay. (carpet was dark navy) Also, wish there was an exhaust fan in the bathroom...steamy shower left the bathroom damp for a while. But overall, very nice hotel. Valet guys were just the nicest and loved seeing dogs so welcomed.

"Very comfortable atmosphere"

Would recommend Thu, Jul 1, 2010
I was a bit surprised and taken back to find that "Parking" ($35 a day) for a guest spending a week in the hotel would be so expensive. I only wish I had know it before renting a car for the week. It's not like one would expect to come to San Diego and not consider driving to other locations.

Nice hotel, a bit expensive

Would not recommend Sun, Jun 27, 2010
I was a bit surprised by the price - I thought more would be included for the money, instead everything is extra - parking, snacks, etc. There is complimentary coffee in the AM and wine in the PM, but you can save your money and stay at another hotel right across the street, and you get free breakfast there...

As Expected...

Would recommend Sun, May 9, 2010
The hotel was nice, clean and efficiently run. Free coffee and tea every morning in the lobby and free wine/beer at night during happy hour. Perfect location in the Gaslamp - blocks from the convention center, and only a $12 taxi ride from the airport. The staff is on the young side and not the most client-oriented. One front desk woman in particular was mildly condescending when asked various questions ranging from locations of certain restaurants to where the closest drug store was. Sort of ironic, as the word "like" surfaced in her sentences more frequently than actual nouns or verbs. On Friday nights, the place turns into a club of sorts and passed out drunk people were peppering the hallways - a little disconcerting if you are there with young children. However, in the hotel's defense, when we made a phone call from our room regarding said sleepers, the staff thanked us profusely and it was handled quickly and quietly. The "fitness center" had two treadmills, one elliptical and some dumbbells. A little surprising given the fact we are in downtown San Diego and not a European B&B. If nothing else, a day pass to any one of the multiple gyms that are nearby would have been a much better and classier option. Overall, I would stay here again for the location, cleanliness and price. NOT a luxury hotel, but it sufficed.

Dining

Lots of good-to-great restaurants within walking distance.

Exquisite Hotel

Would recommend Thu, Apr 22, 2010
The staff of this hotel are wonderful. They are kind, very helpful, courteous, and it's very obvious that they interested in your having a great stay at the hotel. Was a tad disappointed that there was a charge for use of the internet, but that didn't impact my enjoyment of the hotel. Be prepared, the patio is quite lively and you will probably hear the exuberant guests from your room, again, this didn't negatively impact my stay. There is a complimentary wine hour everyday from 5-6 and yes, they refil your glass and that's complimentary too : ) There is also a complimentary coffee bar every morning. Love this hotel. Would definitely stay here again!

Nightlife hint

TONs of night life is within walking distance; the hotel is located smack in the middle of the Gaslamp district. Lots of places to eat and shop. Best location for a hotel!

Great place to stay but pricey

Would recommend Sun, Apr 4, 2010
The hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful. We rented a car witch was not needed because everything is right outside the hotels front door. And if it wasn't it was a cheap cab ride away. Breakfast was expencive in the hotel the Broken Yolk is less then a block away and has great food.

Dining

Alot of good places to eat try as many as you can.
