    Rooms aren't as modern as some other W locations. You're within walking distance of the Gaslamp District, which is great. Valet is $35 overnight but you can text them when you're ready for your car!

    Lobby has free wifi & is a great place for people-watching. The kitchen is open late too -- because late-night email is always best accompanied by tater tots :)

    Dope spot next to Little Italy which has a vegan Italian restaurant. And close to Cafe Gratitude which is also all vegan.

    I love the W SD. Rooms are cool, staff is excellent, maybe the best of any hotel I've stayed in - and I stay in a lot. The restaurant has great breakfast. Internet is a little slow though.

    Complimentary Acura car service the weekend that we were there. He was always available, knew the city extraordinarily well, and made our trip memorable! Very Nice amenity!

    Acura Experience was great but make sure to call ahead. Remember to get the key to your wet bar before you go out because they won't hand them out after 2am.

    Remember , W stands for Whatever / Whenever "as long as it's legal" which is a huge range of fabulousness to behold. Relax, stay a while! You know, you're home when you have arrived at the W :-)

    Nice space with great city view. Monday night bartender a bit too inattentive. I did make up my own drink but still

    Not the best W I've stayed in but the locations good and everyone was helpful enough. Like many other hotels in the area, parking is not included but i found a lot across from the Westin for $25/night

    Free Wi-Fi in the lobby ("Living Room") is great. You might need to fight for a plug though so make sure your laptop or tablet is juiced up.

    W is always a nice brand of hotels , love the Bliss Bathroom products. SD W needs to change in room carpets for sure

    Beware, this is a pet friendly hotel. I love animals but when I pay to stay at a W...I don't expect that my room will smell like animal pee. I recommend asking for a room that is not rented to pets.

    Beautiful hotel; hip but not pretentious. High floor "spectacular" room upgrade is worth the $$.

    Outstanding hotel location. Near trolly line and short walk from Gaslamp District. Rooms not very large yet nicely appointed. Upscale hotel with upscale prices.

    the breakfast was "meh" and way to expensive (50 bucks for two poached eggs, bacon and a croissant? srsly?) ... but i like the place because the staff is really nice and friendly.

    Does not meet the expectations I have for the W hotel. My bay view room is more like "larger condo building view with a small 20 ft opening of bay view, if you look hard"..but Great staff here so far

    Common areas are very tastefully decorated. Rooms are small & need some repairs. My carpet was rather gross. It was obvious that there had been multiple spills. Use car service. Not for families.

    The hotel is well appointed and a great location, but it simultaneously feels like all of the basics are extra cost, and the cost of some things is too high.

    The "rooftop bar" is only a few stories up and serves weak mixed drinks. Order the beer.
