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.
The color palette in the guestrooms and meeting spaces includes fuchsia, a range of purples, gold and orange.
The designers also enhanced standard guestrooms to create a mini-suite. Most rooms now have a sofa for extra seating, glass and mirrors, and surfboard-inspired bathroom mirrors and tiles.
