when we arrived we had a great service from the second we arrived. As we were staying 10 nights they put us on the opposite side to construction (bonus). I have stayed at several W hotels and the rooms in this hotel lack the edge the other hotels have, like they don't seem as modern and the bathroom seems a... More

From the moment we pulled up in the car and were greeted by the valets, I fell in love. The service was outstanding. Each person, from the front desk, to the concierge, to room service was cheerful, helpful and smiling. What a refreshing change from the Costa Mesa Marriott we stayed the nights before. Room was lovely and they were... More

The property itself is a nice facility in what appears to be a renovated building. Restaurants were available in the hotel and within close walking distance. The primary negative was the construction across the street and degree of noise it generates (it made a conference call from the room difficult. other than that, nice staff and a good property.

I tried the W Hotel is San Diego for a Tuesday night stay for work and got the worst nights rest in over a year. The room was incredibly noisy. I asked for earplugs, turned on a white noise app and still couldn't sleep. I could have sworn there was some sort of water pump or fire extinguisher being sprayed... More

Every thing was good generally. But the reason for my 2 star is : 1. no free internet in room! Just in lobby!! Every 2 star hotel has free internet 2. 41 $ for valet parking each night!!. Self parking 2 blocks far and 25$ that dosnt make sence

This W stays true to the concept of trendy and hip. While there, we walked in the lobby and a fashion show was underway. Complete with DJ and runway above the bar. As far as location, it is in the middle of downtown but not near anything. That being said, the walk is short in order to reach restaurants and... More

The only thing lacking was a comfortable chair to sit and read in. The W is centrally located and we were able to walk easily to great restaurants every... More
