Took the family

When I went in the hotel with the family I quickly realized that this was not a place for kids, luckily my kids are teenagers. The room was clean but very small. Overall it was a pretty good room but not good enough for the price.

Are those the photos of the same hotel???

The pool was very disappointing. It was far from the sand lounge (which was closed for a private party) and had room for only 7 lounge chairs. Everybody that walked in had the same question-is this the only pool in this hotel??? It looked more like a jacuzzi. The lobby is pretty and the staff is nice, but the location is a long walk.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Gaslamp quarters was a couple mile walk and has great restaurants and small "touristy" shops.

Unbearable Noise!!

The room was clean but real small. There was apparently clubbing party every Saturday located at the second floor. Our room was at the 17th floor. We can hear the beats of the music perfectly. Even after closing my other ear with the other pillow. Just imagine!! called the front desk twice to complain. The lady said that oh...sorry, I'll ask the manager of the party to lower the volume.... yeah right! There was no change in the noise we were hearing. The second time I called, she said that she'll ask the manager of the party to end the party earlier... come on!! who is she fooling? After the party ends at 1:30 a.m., the party goers returned to their rooms. We can hear conversations and noises from next door. Just unbelievable. We were traveling with two other families. One of them complained that they can even clearly hear the people from the next room 'making out' after the party. The noise partition between the rooms is attrocious!!

Nice stay

Nice hotel. Clean and modern rooms. Friendly staff. Not really good for families on over the weekend visits due to party scene and loud music.

Not what you expect from the W

Loud music and People coming from pool area all night, windows kept no sound out of room. Very Noisy and somewhat dirty. The worse W I ever stayed at.

Nice hotel, not great location

The hotel was nice. Good food. Friendly staff. If you want to stay downtown, it's great. However, it's far from the Gaslamp District and all the restaurants. If you want to stay downtown, stay in the Gaslamp. If not, stay closer to the water.

Nice but not worth the $$$

Location is with 10minutes walk of all the action, 25mins walk from the convention center and 35mins from the zoo. (When we were there they would also drop you off somewhere. Not clear this was a hotel service or an Acura promotion.) The hotel staff are very polite. The rooms are clean and decor is pleasing. But this hotel is definitely not worth what they charge for it, especially for a shorter stay. Having to pay for internet access on top of an already steep rate is just nasty. Parking is available but was over $30/day so forget the car or expect your total bill to be even more inflated. Fortunately it's close to the 192 bus from the airport and the The common area/bar downstairs is a nice space although most of the furniture looks a lot better than it sits. Style seems a little more important than substance. The restaurant onsite is decent and service is good but VERY expensive for what you get.

Great stay @ The W

Stayed @ The W with a few friends for a long weekend. Hotel was very modern, clean, and impressive. Our wonderful room was a little on the small side but for not being there much, it was perfect. The bars are great, expensive but what you would expect from The W. The pool is small. All in all if you get a great deal, or can afford it - I recommend The W San Diego.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

They have a great Acura Experience that will take you one way in the city at no cost in a nice Acura - great feature since it's location was a long walk from the Gaslamp (although only a less than $10 cab ride).
