Guests must pay a daily resort fee
Marketed to hip business travelers, the Solamar San Diego in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is just three blocks from the convention center and a block from Petco Park. The property's convenient location makes it an excellent home base for working guests and sightseers alike. Travelers like the look and feel of the Hotel Solamar, where guest rooms are adorned with dark mahogany furniture, funky patterned accent pieces and amenities such as flat-screen TVs and Atelier Bloem bath products. The 235-room hotel also wins points from the pooches – they get to sleep in designer beds just like their pets, ahem owners. Human guests were also pleased with the property's rooftop sun deck and pool, accommodating staff and seafood-centric restaurant, Jsix.
