I stayed at the W San Diego over the 4th of July weekend. We came to see the Big Bay Boom and were not disappointed. The staff at this W hotel is amazing! They were always friendly, courteous and helpful. We had a room on the 13th floor facing the construction site. They kindly moved us to the 16th floor... More

The rooms were clean and very nice. The restaurant I believe its called Kelvin.. was delicious for breakfast. Staff the very nice (red head) that served... More

I really enjoyed the stay. Close to pretty much everything, with a beautiful lobby, some cool nightlife, and - as usual - the W coolness. Want to play scrabble at 3 am? Call the front desk. The staff is attentive and helpful - and a tad trendy - and the club atmosphere is kind of unique. After dinner we came... More

This is the one hotel that my wife and I finding ourselves returning to more frequently than any other in SD. It's close enough to walk to gaslamp but far enough from all the noise. The hotel itself is very nice. On this trip I actually spent some time each night at the lobby bar after dinner and the bartender... More

Really disappointing :(. Got tired of the "oh well" attitude from the staff. We get there and they didn't include the free breakfast offer that we had when I booked, they told me to call expedia. We ask then to call a cab (we don't über) The cab left, they didn't call the room to let us know it was... More

It is a smaller W Hotel, and the pool area is very small. However, the rooms are big, and very comfortable. The mini-bar is excellent, and the staff are great. The location of the hotel next to a construction site for the new courts is a bit of an issue. The bar downstairs is comfortable, and a good place to... More

I have had the pleasure of being an SPG member for many years. I travel across the country weekly for business, and I have certainly experienced the vast spectrum of hotels Starwood has to offer. I have recently spent a week at the W. Hotel in San Diego, and I can proudly say that this stay was what you can... More

Stayed for four nights booked with Spg points. The first day was a tad difficult due to the loud construction that starts really early from 8 in the morning - not great for a leisure traveler. I requested for a move the next day which was quickly acknowledged and it was great as the second room was more spacious and... More

Attended a half day business meeting (70 people) on a pretty Saturday morning in June. The street level meeting room could easily hold 100 comfortably at large round tables. Good audio and video support. A fine continental and hot breakfast buffet was set up outdoors on the street level patio connected to the meeting room by large french doors. The... More
