    I've stayed at this property a few times and try to wait till I make my review. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport and is in a good location downtown for most businesses. If you need a short ride the hotel has a car service. I find check in was good this time though I have had... More

    Expectations are high when checking in at a W hotel and this one met most of mine. My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in room 1016, which has a new floor (I loved the zebra design) and a new bed. Lovely design overall. Annoyingly there is a huge construction site right across the street, even on Sunday a... More

    My husband and I stayed for one night. The hotel itself is nice but the wait to check in was long and the next morning they had no hot water in the entire hotel. They didn't offer a apology or anything.. when asked what they could do.. they offered 500 points which was pretty insulting for something as major as... More

    I normally love W Hotels and the way SPG members are treated but this is one hotel we won't be returning to after too many small incidents added up to one overall poor experience at the W San Diego. -The walls are paper thin, one night we heard a couple getting it on for about 30min, the next children screaming...

    I was excited to stay the night at the W with my husband to celebrate valentines day even though we only live 20 minutes away. Our first impression of the hotel was pulling in to what we thought was the parking garage. As we drove down the narrow ramp we saw a large W hotel sign but knew this could... More

    The W in San Diego is a hip, almost boutique-like hotel, right next to Little Italy. We love the dining options in Little Italy and appreciate the great location. Rooms are decorated in a nautical theme of blues and whites. Being in the floor covering business, I loved the common area and room carpets! The mats in the elevator great... More

    Tom W and staff have this place looking and running great! You won't find a better lobby on the west coast and the staff is always ready to have a fun conversation. If you stay here you'll get the W experience and so much more. Highly recommended!

    My boyfriend and I spent the night here last weekend. It was a surprise for his birthday and we loved it! From the moment we got there everyone treated us so well; the valet, the doorman, the front desk attendant. We felt very special. Coming into the room they had written Happy Birthday on the chalkboard and everything looked really... More

Our downtown San Diego hotel is walking distance from the city's lively Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy and just minutes from the San Diego Convention Center, Seaport Village, Coronado Island, San Diego Beaches and many more things to do in San Diego.If you're looking for the hottest spot in the San Diego bar scene, simply look up. The W San Diego Hotel Rooftop Bar is a visionary fusion of extraordinary cocktails and glittering views. Bringing the bright, bold bonfire theme to life, the space features a playful sculpture of stacked beach chairs, designed by Mr. Important Design. Guests can mingle in one of the five private cabanas or toast to the nightly Sunset Ritual by the signature bonfire. Full service and bottle service is available. Then if you really want to make a splash, wander down to WET, our heated outdoor pool, located just a few steps from the rooftop revelry. Or kick back with cocktails in the Living Room Lounge where urban sophistication meets laid back style.Contemporary world cuisine with a West Coast flair-that is the inspiration served at KELVIN, W San Diego's new restaurant. ... more   less
