If you like getting about and walking,The hotel was centrally located to Little Italy (10 minutes walk), the Broadwalk (10 mins walk) and 20 minutes to Seaport Village and about 20 Minutes to Gaslamp District. It is also located very close to the rail lines if you want to take that and move around town. The hotel was nice, rooms... More

Entrance lobbies always give you your first impressions of a hotel. The W at San Diego impressed. Someone had had some fun at interior design school. Quirky, flowing, with an inviting bar at the end. It made for a warm fuzzy welcoming. Checking in past 3pm,we expected that our room, a corner room, would be ready. Hmm!, no. To the... More

A beautiful boutique style hotel with modern décor and a friendly atmosphere. Each of the staff we came in contact with greeted us with a smile and warm greeting. Our room was clean and modern with several amenities including a bathtub which seems to be missing from most hotels we have stayed in the past. The only items missing were... More

First, staff is wonderful, friendly, helpful, and they get it done - from front door to rooftop bar. Second, if you like hip design, this is definitely your place. The pool is small but the bar inside and out are the places to be. Have to say, however, among he ultra beautiful young people, club music in the elevator, and... More

My wife and I decided to stay at the W in San Diego to begin the first night of our honeymoon before traveling out of town. We travel frequently but neither my wife nor I had previously stayed at the W, so we were curiously looking forward to it. We checked in Friday afternoon and the young lady at the... More

Pros: Great location downtown SD. Close to the beach, bars and restaurants. Stuff surprised us with a birthday cake, which was a wonderful gesture. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Issues were resolved while we were there. Cons: Very small room that did not have a tub. Did not get Gold SPG benefits when we arrived. Had to reach... More

We stayed in room 1715, the most fantastic room we could have asked for. There was a view of the marina through the buildings and lights at night were beautiful. We were on the opposite side of the construction and we did not hear any construction noise at all. Room 1715 is a spacious double bed room with a nice... More

Really nice choice in the downtown San Diego area. Nice 'Living Room' bar lobby area which gets busy while folks are heading out to other locations. Rooftop bar (second floor rooftop) and really small pool were all nice additions. Excellent service from all. Ask for a room on the side of the hotel away from the major construction as the... More

Very surprised to receive Champagne and chocolate for our anniversary, and the staff were wonderful. The staff were wonderful. The hotel definately needs to be updated, bathroom really needs remodeling, although it looked like they attempted it, but never decided to finish. The noise is horendous, and probably will be for a while until building construction next door is done.... More

Overall nice hotel but mostly for singles ... Not a family friendly hotel .. Pool too small felt like a bathtub. Not a rooftop pool, it's on the 2nd level surrounded by the walls of the hotel. The hotel also had a sewer smell throughout . Mirrors everywhere! I felt as if I was in Vegas ... Like I said... More
