Hotel Solamar is steps from San Diego's World-Class Convention Center
At the edge of Gaslamp District and just a five-minute walk from Hotel Solamar lies the San Diego Convention Center. The sleek white structure, highlighted at its central fiberglass "sails" that reach skyward, takes up a few city blocks along shimmering San Diego Bay. Some say it's a neighborhood unto itself.
If you're here on business, you'll be pleased to discover the great views of downtown San Diego from the convention center's floor-to-ceiling windows or rooftop terraces. On its southwest side, there lies a leisure boat-strewn marina and terraces where you can see out over San Diego Bay and Embarcadero Park where the San Diego Summer Pops perform. Why stay at just any Convention Center hotel when your San Diego address can be an urban playground experience. After your day or work or attending a convention, Hotel Solamar continues to make it easy to mix work with pleasure, with our hosted evening So Cal hour, outdoor pool and lounge and in-room spa services. Our San Diego Convention Center is also located within the famous gaslamp district, steps from terrific restaurants and dynamic nightlife.
The Convention Center's retains its claim to fame as host location the annual Comic-Con International Convention, a massive showcase of innovation in comic books, science fiction/fantasy, animation and pop culture (and Hollywood Central for four days). The Center also played host to the 1996 Republican National Convention.
