DO NOT stay at the W for group events. I planned my sister's bachelorette. I was on the phone multiple times for months leading up to the bachelorette. Every single time, I was told different information about the reservation. Sure

Amazing View and the most comfortable bed you'll ever sleep in! I loved every single night I stayed there. They really make you feel welcome and at home. Close to everything that you want downtown, and if you wear heels, the cab ride is

Over all I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The Whatever Whenever costumer service was on point and whether they were faking it or not the employees were very courteous. \r
The only thing that really took me for a loop was how expensive room

This place is so much fun. The poolside area is an awesome place to hang out. The hotel staff is super friendly. The hotel is very well kept up and it keeps me coming back.

I loved staying at the W but the service was ok. For a luxury hotel, you would expect speedier responses. I called for an electrician and it took over an hour for them to come change a simple light. I would stay here again but I hope they add more staff to improve the customer service.

This hotel offers a monthly mom's day out where moms and tots can enjoy exclusive time at the beach bar! Usually with kid-friendly music or other entertainment, it's a ton of fun, (and a little swanky!) But, they keep it very affordable with 1/2 price kid's meals etc.
Would recommend this fun event!

We arrived around 6:00pm on a Sunday in mid September. Other postings warned of a crowded venue later in the evening but our arrival time found only around a dozen. The fire pit was surprisingly large with generous flame and available

Pros: Great atmosphere, romantic potential, unique style.

Cons: Music became loud, rooftop but no view

The W is awesome to just chillax at!
Beautiful women on the weekends, be ready for long lines on weekend nights.
Def a place to be seen, get suited and booted folks

I can't say enough good things about the W hotel brand. Its always so consistent, with only the best amenities. I always feel welcomed by the staff, the rooms are luxurios with the best decor , and the beds are amazing. Would recommend this place every time. Its not the best value , and the prices are expensive, but the quality is the best.

I've stayed at a lot of W's on my travels. This isn't the very best
(my favorites are the W Union Square in NYC and the W New Orleans) but this W has a great, friendly staff (not snobby like the W Westwood) and nice, modern rooms. I've recommended the hotel to visiting friends and stayed there once when out of town friends were there.

My only complaints are 1) I wish they would replace the shutters with black-out drapes and 2) I wish they would get more comfortable furniture (like the plush lounges at other W's)

The hotel can be pricey but if you're a Starwood member you can sometimes find 50% off SPG50 rates.

The "W" has all of the amenities you would expect from a hip urban hotel...amazing customer service, fantastic attention to detail (the floormats in the elevators are changed throughout the day to read "good

Pros: swank, hip, great location, bend-over-backwards customer service

Cons: expensive, lacking in basic amenities, loud at times

I have never been disappointed by any W Hotel around the world. I don't care if they are faking it -- but they know how to take care of their dog-loving guests. Nearly every detail is taken care of from water bowls & treats near the taxi

Pros: Location, Staff, Pet-Friendly, Beautiful, Clean, Great Food

The "W" is a brick and mortor paradox for me. I like the fact that is considered "hip" and "trendy". The San Diego location, just like its NYC and San Francisco brethren, includes an in-house bar that is considered a see and be-seen

Cons: Noisy, crowded, cold if you're not near the fire pit.

The W in San Diego will meet all expectations. It is modern, beautiful, and the employees work extra hard to ensure your comfort. Just don't forget that even if you are a hotel guest, you need reservations for a cabana on the swanky

Pros: guest service

Cons: becomes a noisy nightclub , so if you're not into that, better go elsewhere...

My girlfriend and I had a good weekend stay there despite an initial chilly welcome and a run-in with a rude bell hop. Otherwise, service from the bar and restaurant waitstaff was excellent. Definately try the fry bread and green beans

Warm sand a firepit make it really unique and a great place to hang out. And if the weather is not so great you can still enjoy the "Living Room" downstairs.

This was my first experience at Horton Plaza a few years ago when I got to stay at this W Hotel with my best friend. I think we had to pay for overnight valet parking but the service was absolutely top-notch from the check-in to check-out. The room was not too big but the bathroom was bigger than usual with marble top counter and double sinks. The beds were so soft that I had a really good sleep. We walked around the hotel, ate at a really nice Italian restaurant, had some Cappaccino later and did some major shopping at Horton Plaza. I can't wait to go back!

A terrific location and creative facilities make this place a great one for a getaway trip. They have an outdoor pool (small, less than 10 seats available) as well as an outdoor beach bar with a fire pit (very cool). Rooms very nice and well-sized for a W Hotel. Concierge friendly and knowledgable

PROS: Location, Scene, Concierge
CONS: None
