Stay at Gaslamp’s Hotel Solamar, and there’s no need to bring a car. Only one block from baseball super-haven Petco Park, three blocks from the convention center, and a hop, skip and a jump from countless restaurants, nightclubs and hot shopping spots, Solamar is the eye of San Diego’s entertainment storm.
Although there’s such a surplus of things to do within walking distance you might never hit the pillow, Solamar offers four-star amenities and service to ensure your down time is dazzling. All rooms are decorated with blue-and-brown artistic flair, featuring details such as chocolate tables carved with pale pebble-filled partitions, large mirrors, and polka-dotted lampshades. Many rooms have patio opening right onto the pool deck, and after a refreshing swim, spa services can be rendered right in your room.
Hotel Solamar also features Jsix, once of downtown’s top restaurants, and Jbar, its adjoining nightclub. Jsix offers gourmet dishes inspired by the California coastline, including oven crisp bass, grilled calamari, and steamed clams. Jsix, beside the pool on the rooftop deck, is seductively lit by pool lanterns and fire pits, and the bartenders mix up irresistible selections like the raspberry truffle martini, or the delectable “Passiontini”.
