Kimpton’s Hotel Solamar Celebrates Summer

Hotel Solamar, Kimpton, San Diego
Festive evenings, fun freebies, savings and socials at the Gaslamp’s hippest address.

You can always count on the Kimpton Hotels for their distinctive style and clever offerings, appealing to progressive travelers and eco-conscious explorers. At the edge of the Gaslamp, the gorgeous Hotel Solamar proves to be a compelling spot for those seeking out a little urban fun with easy access to San Diego’s aquatic playground and plethora of powdery-soft beaches.  With the coastal fog lifting and the long days of summer upon us, Hotel Solamar’s annual Summer Playground campaign adds a little pizzazz to any weekend stay.

Morning begins with comp’d iced coffees for a  little caffeinated kick start.  Their rooftop lounge  boasts colorful comfy cabanas and poolside Pilates classes for a little ab work to start the day right.  Then spend the afternoon enjoying the sun while sipping DIY Arnold Palmer’s and nibbling on gourmet, farm-fresh bites from Chef Christian Graves, one of San Diego’s finest.  Burn off those umbrella drinks with a riveting round of Wii games on the terrace like Dance Dance Revolution, a good way to warm up for club-hopping later that night.

At the Sangria Happy Hour, enjoy a peach nectarine ambrosia made with New Zealand’s environmentally-friendly Black Box Sauvignon Blanc. Then further explore Graves’ amazing seasonal menu at Jsix where you can bring along your favorite bottle of wine as corkage is waived through September.

During July, their Scoop for Success campaign means $2 ice cream treats with 50% of the proceeds supporting the charity Dress for Success which helps women reenter the work force.

Kimpton will also be tweeting and facebooking secret passwords to those who tune in for room upgrades, complimentary in-room movies, free food, and more.

This Summer Playground package starts at $179 and also includes a $25 food and beverage credit and a complimentary in-room movie with popcorn.  Use the code PLGD in the rate code box.

So get your summertime groove on at Hotel Solamar.
