4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We came into San Diego at 2am. We couldn't find a hotel and they were the last one we could find. The beds are NOT queen. They were full size. The sheets were so crunchy feeling. They were clean but rough and noisy. The ac only goes down to 65. The room felt very warm at that temp. But we... More

The hotel needs a renovation soon. My room was mediocre at best and the parking fee was astronomical. 10 years ago this was the most happening place in the Gas Lamp now its OK. I would recommend another downtown San Diego Hotel over this one.

We stayed for a bachelor weekend a couple of weeks ago. We got put two to a room and our room was... nice. The hotel is hip and modern and just like other W hotels, but it seemed a bit smaller and maybe just like a cheaper hotel with a face-lift. It was nice, but not amazing, like some of... More

Stayed here on a recent Business trip and loved it. From arriving to leaving the W exceeded expectations. The Check in staff were great, efficient and welcoming just what you need after an 18 hour long flight. The room was surprisingly big with a comfy bed and generous bathroom, fast and free wifi (for Starwood preferred status) were just what... More

This hotel is awesome! close to the Santa Fe Train station, museum, and basically everything!!! I requested a special Happy Birthday message for the room and got more than I expected! They placed gourmet cupcakes, special birthday desserts, and a bottle of champagne. It made my birthday surprise for my boyfriend even more unforgettable. I also LOVE the BLISS products... More

Love the style and ambiance of this hotel. Friendly staff ran out of shampoo and the cleaning lady provided me with a full kit of toiletries. The bar at the rooftop is perfect to grab a drink comfortably without being too crowded. The only downside is the parking, $44 seems a bit hight, but again its San Diego

You're staying at a W. You know it's gonna be a treat! The San Diego W is no exception. It's hip and modern. There was a pool party on Sunday afternoon which was awesome! The games in the lobby are great entertainment and you may just make a new friend if you ask a stranger to play with you. The... More

This hotel was very conveniently located. The staff was very helpful. The lobby and rooftop bar are very nice. The only drawback were the bathroom doors in the rooms. They are the sliding barn doors. They look really nice, but there is about a 1" gap when the door is "closed."

The location of the hotel is excellent, only a 10-15 minute walk from 5th avenue and the gaslamp district in one direction, and the coast in the opposite direction. The bar in the hotel is great, staff are friendly, music is brilliant and the cocktails taste great too. However, the rooms are rather disappointing. They feel like the furniture is... More

Our room was trendy modern but comfortable; great beds. Noise from adjacent construction was not an issue. Staff very friendly. Pool on 2nd floor small but great for kids. Very nice 3rd floor rooftop lounge. Nice Happy Hour wine offering. Were not comfortable with the early-morning ruckus in the hallway and adjacent room - - unfortunately something that seems to...
