I like to stay in Kimpton Hotels when I travel to the U.S. So far, I haven't been disappointed by this chain. The Solamar is in a great location in the southern (?) end of Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego. There are lots of restaurants within easy walking distance, it's close to Petco Park if you're a baseball fan, they have a lovely pool/outdoor lounge area, it's close to downtown, the Embarcadero, the Convention Center, and Horton Plaza Mall. The other Kimpton in San Diego, the Palomar, is in a sketchier part of the downtown (more pan handling and homeless people). The staff at the Solamar are good and its restaurant, JSix, has fantastic food. The only negative comment I have is that they need to go through their towels and discard the ones that are thin and worn.
