I just returned for a 3 night weekend stay here with a 45 person family wedding party from Midwest and Eastcoast, and it was really nice, relaxing, hip, trendy and well managed. The rooms are really cool, very Cali in feel, and the bars, pool, and beach lounge great to hangout. Its 3 blocks to the train, and easy walk or taxi to everywhere, or walk, or rent a bike. You can stay in the convention hotels, or the typical sterile ones by the Gaslamp district, which they all looked nice, even the Courtyard and Embassy Suites, but those are cookie cutter hotels that you may as well be in Minneapolis or Atlanta.
The W nails it again, with a nice value property thats unique in decor, feel, mood and ambiance, and everyone in the wedding party loved it, from age 65 to 18.
Rent a car, and take in the sights of Del Mar, La Jolla, and even LA is 2.5 hours north for a day trip.
I stay 4-5 star everywhere, travel 120 days a year, domestic and international, and this hotel at $150 is a delight.
