My partner and I stayed one night at Hotel Solamar with our 44 pound dog. Arrival was smooth. Front desk was busy, but everyone was handled very efficiently while staff maintained high levels of attention and courtesy. An email about my partner's birthday and dog needing a bed and bowl were not received, but front desk agent and bellman both made sure the dog supplies were sent up immediately. I had put in a preference for foam pillows, but room had feather. However, website does make it clear that preferences are not guaranteed. The room was on the smaller side of average, but ample for our stay. Decor was modern and funky. Bathroom as well. Instead of sample size shampoos and soaps, hotel puts dispensers in the shower. While you aren't able to take them as mementos, they are high-quality Gilchrist and Soames. The room was clean. Our dog came with and was greeted warmly by both staff and other guests at complimentary wine hour. Pizza and warm nuts were also provided. A previous reviewer complained about all the dogs at the hotel, but note this is a Kimpton which has a very liberal chain-wide pet policy. And there are two parks within walking distance for dogs (PETCO is closed after dark, though). After wine hour, front desk was very helpful with map and directions. Note that valet parking is $35, but with full in-and-out priveleges. We look forward to our next stay here.
