Editorial review:

There is a great rooftop beach bar here with fire pits, the staff is attractive and helpful but they can seem a bit snobbish at times, the location is near the Gaslamp Quarter, and the nightlife is very active. The rooms are very small, though.

              Very nice staff and great location!!! Room was clean and hotel lobby had a very cool feel!!!

              We loved the breakfast menu; and I had a fantastic facial at the spa.

              The rooms were dated and in need of a re-vamp. The rate at the W San Diego was the same as the one in Scotsdale where we stayed immediately prior to coming to San Diego....but the rooms were far superior in Scotsdale. It was a real let-down when we were shown to our room.

              good location....

              I was disappointed with the DJ at the 'Beach' on Saturday afternoon. He began playing at approximately 2:30pm, at a high sound level. It was very distracting and annoying to most of the people who were relaxing with a drink. It is one thing to have him arrive to play late afternoon/early evening...but it was wholly inappropriate and disruptive at that time of day.

              The roof top bar was a great place to hangout, have a cocktail and watch the sunset. Don't wear heels they have sand in the seating area and it was difficult to walk in 6" heels!!!!!

              The pillows were to soft... I woke up with a neck ache... But I have a tempurpedic at home so it's hard to compare anything to it. I don't typically sleep well when I am not at home iny own bed, so I figured I wouldn't have a good night sleep.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              too noisy. For the price of the room, i would not come back.

              No at the level of its inttention....

              Friendly helpful staff.

              Internet connectivity was spotty but, upon checkout, when I explained this they credited the price I paid for it. However, I really needed to be connected to the internet and it was a problem.

              Great location with nice lobby design

              -Bad (most of the time it didn't work) and expensive. -Breakfast is really bad for europeans, all we could eat was eggs

              It's beautiful and it is a great location for a weekend trip!

              I didn't like how the carpet in our room was dirty in certain areas. It felt like there were a lot of germs. I wish the carpet was a lot cleaner, then our stay would've been perfect and complete!

              6.2

              I think the rooms are cute, they fit the vibe of the entire hotel.

              My reservation was incorrect and were not able to provide me with the room I booked. Bar and pool are less than mediocre.

              The only thing I was disappointed about was that the pictures online made me believe my room was bigger then it actually was. Other then that it was perfect =) thank you
