Friendly staff, great clean rooms, easy valet parking and in a great area. Will for sure be staying here the next time I come to San Diego. I am a very picky person when it comes to hotels and really could not find anything to complain about regarding the room.

I stayed here for two nights attending a convention. I used the "pay your birthyear" promotion, and wanted to stay a third night, but they were sold out for my final night. I, unfortunately, had to switch to the awful Four Points 1/2 a mile away (another review on that). The hotel is clean, comfortable, and very chic. I used... More

A friend and I stayed at the W San Diego for 3 nights in October 2014. Location: It's in a quiet area, away from nightlife areas, which we appreciated. Close to the water and Little Italy. Easy to get to from the airport. Decor: Lobby is funky and modern, exactly what I expect from a W. Our room had a... More

I enjoy SPG hotels (W’s in particular) because of the great service and beautiful hotels. When I arrived at the W in San Diego, Jennifer welcomed me at the front desk. It was the most welcomed and enjoyable experience I have ever had checking into a hotel. Jennifer was very warm and personable, and extremely enjoyable to chat with. Most... More

this quirky hotel has it all. A rooftop bar and pool albeit small, great restaurant and a lively evening scene. Would recommend to anyone. Knocks socks of bigger chain nonentities. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Staff were brilliant and extremely helpful.

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
