Fantastic place to stay. Staff was great and quite knowledgeable about the area. Observing the car valets they were careful with the vehicles. Enjoyed sitting at the bar and having a quiet drink. The fitness room was well equipped and clean. The pool was well adorned and very relaxing.

We spent one night here in order to be downtown and close to Union Station (Amtrak). Access was simple and because it was a weekend I was able to find free overnight parking and cheap lots nearby. Due to construction we were given a room on the other side of the hotel - this was good as they were working... More

We stay in the downtown a lot when we come to town on business and tried the W this time. Glad we did. All of us in the group remarked they like the quality and somewhat understated lobby that still exuded friendliness with eye-catching art and decor. The rooms are great, large and the bathroom goes well above just OK.... More

Booked through PL. Hotel staff REALLY nice. This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in, in San Diego. It was very clean. The room was nice, smelled and looked clean. Great location short walking distance to Horton Plaza and Gaslamp. The only issues we had were no working ice machine on our floor and our bathroom sink... More

The front desk and valet parking staff were extremely helpful with directions and telling me about the area. Room was fantastic, very spacious and clean with typical W hotel style which made... More

This location has the interior design of a trendy Downtown hotel, with all the modern amenities and a very friendly and helpful staff, yet not in the hustle and bustle of the Gaslamp District. Located near Little Italy there are a lot of great restaraunts in walking distance as well as a pretty cool farmers market on Saturdays. You can... More

W has a very "cool" vibe, almost tries to be too "cool." The rooms are nice, comfy bed, great bathrooms and very nice toiletries. The pool is small but is relaxing, decent gym. Paying for parking and wi-fi stinks, considering you are paying a pretty penny to stay there, one would think the hotel chain could at the very least... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the W. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the rooms are lovely - really comfortable beds. Service is excellent too. I had read reviews which warned about the noise levels at this hotel, but I have to say we had no problems whatsoever with either loud guests, or paper-thin walls. It's definitely a bit... More

On vacation to celebrate my birthday which the W SD recognised by upgrading us to a higher floor and providing bubbly and cake in the room on arrival (thanks) - we had to wait a wee while for our room to be prepared on arrival and were treated to drinks and a basket of chips in the 'living room' while...
