Paletteur renovates Kimpton’s Hotel Solamar
San Diego’s Balboa Park and Southern California’s Missions were used for inspiration by designers Gino Castaño and David Lasker who conceptualized a contemporary Spanish style.

Kimpton’s Hotel Solamar completed renovation of its meeting spaces and guestrooms on several floors. Designed by Paletteur, the new rooms and public spaces showcase Spanish contemporary design. The property will be fully redesigned by March.

Hotel Solamar first partnered with Bay Area’s Paletteur in 2015 to update and redesign the 11-year-old property. With San Diego’s Balboa Park and Southern California’s historic Missions used for inspiration, designers Gino Castaño and David Lasker blended Spanish-influenced architecture with modern fixtures and touches.

Design elements in the guestrooms and suites include woven vinyl headboards and ethnic touches in the bed skirts, sofas, nightstands, light fixtures and suspended TV credenzas.
