This hotel is fantastic. The front desk service is top notch, and can't be beat. Rooms are beautiful, big, very clean, and really comfortable. The rooftop bar is sweet, and the breakfast is really good. The decor is very chic, and the amenities are not only great, but plenty. I highly recommend this hotel as the only hotel in San... More

Great location for walking to everything but the beach. 10 min walk to pier and tram service. Close to San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. Mall within 15 min walk. Convenience was great. 10 min from airport. Clean rooms, friendly staff.

Staying at a W is always a safe bet. Keeping with the standards of W you will get chic yet functional decor, the cool amenities and a great bar! The location was great. The cost is not expensive and well worth it when you take into consideration that a Holiday Inn in San Diego is charging $160 a night. The... More

The hotel is great. Rooms are big, clean and very comfortable. The rooftop bar (that actually sits on the 2nd floor) is OK. Breakfast is OK as well, but you can get much better for that price. The overall experience was nice and the staff is great.

Booked the day before we arrived, we wanted something grand, modern and stylish. With a pool. It fitted the bill in every respect except for the pool which was minuscule! Fabulous bar, acknowledged our wedding anniversary, was treated to free champagne. Very close to everywhere...we parked the car and walked. We loved it. We spent three nights there.

A fun hip place to stay in San Diego.. Close to everything downtown.. Recommend the side with no construction ... Walk to Gas town, waterfront and close to Hillcrest .. Recommend high level floors. Great happy hour in the living room.. A cool hotel..

My husband treated me to a surprise Mother's Day staycation at the W San Diego this past weekend. I have to admit that I was so stressed thinking about bringing our extremely colicky 13-week-old to a place where other people would be sleeping. I thought we would either have to head home or spend most of our time running outside... More

The W San Diego is a nice hotel. I'm a huge fan of W Hotels and this location does not disappoint. The lobby is a visual masterpiece. My room was a corner suite. It was clean and the views of downtown were incredible. Room Service was good. The guy who checked me in had a bit of an attitude, but... More

The hotel is in a great location. I found it easy to walk around the hotel and the area is very enjoyable. I especially enjoyed the farmers market on saturday in Little Italy. The lobby is stunning very posh and on the right night a DJ performs on the 2nd floor balcony in the lobby. The staff here is ultra... More

Spent one night on a business trip. Beautiful interior. Good location and within walking distance of little Italy and gaslamp quarter. I got upgraded to a corner suite which had lots of sunlight. The lobby bar was excellent with great cocktails.
