W San Diego

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 3, 2007

The W is a great hotel and, as in many cities, quite the hotspot in San Diego. If your vacation involves late night partying, its worth the steep price of admission. But, if you come to the city on business, you might want to look elsewhere.

I was unfortunately booked into a room on the side of the hotel overlooking the nightclub. If noise is a concern, inquire about this on check in. As I learned at 2 a.m. one night, the other side is much quieter.

All noise complaints aside, the hotel is fabulous and everything in the rooms is top notch. The rooms are on the small side, but have extremely comfortable beds and down comforters. The waterfall shower was a true luxury. And the staff was A+ handling everything from room service delivery to the 2 a.m. request for ear plugs. They even offered to help me relocate to another room at this wee hour of the morning.

Unique Quality: This is a party hotel and everything is geared towards the late night ambience. On the last night of my stay, I ventured downstairs to check out the festivities. The bar/club was quite a scene and a lot of fun.

"whatever and whenver " - True to their slogan

best hotel I have stayed in. It is expensive to stay in WHOTEL and It was a business trip but I definitely recommend staying in one of the WHotel at least once. New experience

Unique Quality: - heated sandbeach bar on second floor balcony
- Lobby has a bar and becomes a Night club on Friday and Saturday night
- W Hotel itself are so unique

Nice, but not really my style

I recently stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend who was attending a conference. We were booked in the hotel because it was pretty much the only place left, as he booked with the conference later than most other people. The hotel in itself was very nice and in a good location. The rooms, though small, were nicely decorated and the beds were incredibly comfortable. I usually miss my own bed at home while staying in a hotel, but this time I didn't miss it at all. The linens were crisp and the covers luxurious. Despite the small room the bathroom was a good size. The service at the hotel was excellent. All of the employees were friendly and seemed to truly care about you enjoying your stay. The whatever/wherever service was helpful, we called them a few times for assistance (couldn't figure out how to work the dvd player). One employee even told me to call the service when I wanted ice because they would get it for me. She saw me in the hall going to get it, as the ice machines are located on even numbered floors, which was not my floor. While I never did this I suppose it would be helpful if you had already gotten into your p.j.s and wanted ice.
The atmospehre would be really cool if you were into the whole club/party scene, which I'm not. The services were also insanely expensive. It cost $1.50 to make a local call and $2 to call an 800 number. The room service menu also gave us a good chuckle, the prices were scary. We were afraid to touch anything because we weren't sure if we had to pay for it or not.
Overall a nice hotel, but for the price it's not something that I'd really recommend. If you've got the bucks and you like to party you'll probably love it.

Unique Quality: The Beach
DVD players in every room

Directions: Downtown

When you arrive at this hotel, the first thing you will notice is a wonderful crowd of youthful party seekers enjoying the bar scene at the W. This is great for the vacationer... but if you are here on business, you might consider a different local.

After you head up the dark stairway to the elevators, you will notice how noveau the entire place is...

Once inside your suite, you will see a wonderful blue and white bedspread that lets you know you are home... that is if your home is in the Modern Art Museum!

This hotel is located downtown within walking distance of the Gaslamp Quarter and is really something special. Recommended for people under 50.

Unique Quality: The decoration is modern and shocking. The feeling is more like if you were in a club rather than a hotel. The place is usually packed with young and fashionable people everywhere from the lobby to the amazing Beach bar with heated sand floor. The ambience is great and targets to those who like to party. Rooms are nice, comfortable and stuffed with modern things like CD players, DVD and boards hanging on the walls. They look like the room of a young bachelor.

It does deserve a visit at least to have a drink. It's definitely one of the hot spots to hang out in San Diego.
