Conceptualized by Paletteur, the finished product will showcase a high-end Mediterranean style, blending San Diego’s historic, Spanish-influences with vibrant, modern touches. Guestrooms and suites will be fully upgraded with new furniture and carpeting, and will feature bright colors and patterns, dramatic elements and eclectic touches. The hotel’s ballroom and meeting rooms will also see a complete upgrade. In addition to new carpeting, evocative of Spanish colonial designs, the rooms will be equipped with strong impactful lighting. The lobby will also undergo a significant change, with brighter colors and lighting, new artwork and reception area, and contemporary touches throughout the space.
“Our guests continuously choose us for our premier location, comfortable setting and authentic guest experience,” said Shannon Foster, general manager at Hotel Solamar. “We can’t wait to complete this renovation and truly offer it all—a vibrant, stunning hotel in the ideal downtown location, a world-class restaurant and pool deck, and of course our unmatched guest service.”
Hotel construction will be completed under the direction of Hotel Solamar’s new general manager, Shannon Foster. Foster joined the team in June 2015 from Kimpton’s Hotel La Jolla, where she oversaw the hotel’s transition to a Kimpton Hotel. Guestroom updates kick off in November 2015 and will be followed by meeting space and lobby renovations.
