Hotel Solamar, San Diego CA – Dog Friendly | Downtown Gaslamp Location
You’re probably wondering where to stay when you vacation with your dog in San Diego.
In today’s post I’m going to share the best dog friendly boutique hotel for your pupcation as well as all the dog friendly activities you can do during your stay.
Kimpton Hotels is the best Pet Friendly Hotel Brand
From it’s inception Kimpton has been pet friendly. Founded in 1981 they pioneered the Boutique Hotel concept. And among the first to recognize that dogs are family. Their founder Bill Kimpton would bring his miniature collie, Chianti, to work because he knew that dogs lifted spirits.
Kimpton can be found in 60 cities. We never leave our four legged family members at home and have stayed in their San Francisco, Phoenix, Denver, and Santa Barbara properties.
Dog Friendly Staff at the Kimpton Hotel Solamar, San Diego
You know that a hotel is pet friendly when they have a “Director of Pet Relations”. They are the honorary staff of the canine persuasion. They have the ruff task in quality testing all the pet amenities. Their other job duty includes greeting the guests in the lobby and being present over the nightly wine hours.

Frankie and I had a fantastic time in the gaslamp a few years ago. One of our favorite places to stay in San Diego.

I can drink wine with my dogs at a hotel where they provide pet beds, pupcakes, and a canine Director of Pet Relations, AND they charge no pet fee? Plus they serve delicious French Toast for the humans! How did I not know about this Shangri-La before? Love it. Also love your comprehensive review that includes ideas for what to do in San Diego near this pet-friendly destination.
