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.

    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.

    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.

    -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!

  • Group of friends

    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
