My experience at the W was so disappointing. The hotel is under renovation, they are under staffed. Service is so poor. I waited 40 minutes for ten to toast a bagel and ended up getting a cold bagel. The server was not helpful. The rooms are old and particularly the bathrooms. If somebody starts taking a shower next door while you are showering, the water suddenly turns so hot or so cold! I would never stay there again.

Hello, and I am sorry to hear that your stay with us was anything less than fantastic.

We pride ourselves on our amazing Talent, and I am sad to hear that you did not receive what I know we usually present to our guests. While we are under renovation, we are scheduled to be completed in early June of this year!

Please consider checking us out on your next trip to San Diego, I know we won’t disappoint!

Thanks,

Brad

Stayed here over Easter weekend with my daughter for a trip to the San Diego Zoo. Was a fabulous hotel, great beds, within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants.
Excellent W service. My only complaint is that the "beach" bar was closed for remodels while there - and I was looking forward to that place, one of the reasons we booked. Love SPG program, Westin beds and amenities. Everyone from the valet, bar tender, receptionist and concierge went above and beyond.

I stayed at W San Diego on business and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The rooms have every modern amenity and who doesn't love those Bliss bath products! Their new restaurant Kelvin just opened this weekend and the food is delicious. The hotel is centrally located to everything - from Horton Plaza for Shopping to Seaport Village for running along the waterfront to Little Italy for great restaurants and bars and even a short walk to the Gaslamp district with SO MUCH entertainment. The San Diego trolly is a block away and the hotel also has 2 Acura cars to drive you within a few miles of the hotel - tres convenient! I highly recommend W San Diego to anyone wanting a fun atmosphere with great food and a convenient location. Oh and don't forget to check out their newly renovated Beach Bar...

So we arrive and the check in was a little crowded but moved very quickly, we did a pre check in because we showed up at 11am and threw our suits on and went directly to the rooftop deck, can you say amazing? Both days we layed on this bed that was the size of a queen bed and soaked up e sun with amazing food and unbelievable service both days!!! Chris and Clay are the bomb, they catered to our every need and made sure that we were taken care of!!!! So we get to our room and it was stunning, due to some unfortunate circumstances we got an upgrade to a suite and it was worth the bad experience we had encountered before! We get ready for dinner and they have a car that will drop you off to anywhere you wanna go within five miles! Saved us on taxi rides two nights! Then we had lunch at kelvin, it's new, a little different but we love those kind of places, we're up for trying new things!!!! I think our entire experience hands down goes to Spiro, without him this vacation would never been so wonderful! The staff and effort everyone put into making this stay wonderful was WAY beyond our expectations!!!! I would say the only downfall was the construction but that didn't affect our stay one bit, if anything next year we will be able to enjoy the hotel at its very finest, not that it isn't already! Spiro, Clay and Chris, thank you!

Room Tip: this place is great for a nice relaxing weekend!,

Stayed here for 3 nights in May, Thursday to Sunday. SPG Gold so were upgraded to a higher floor. Main bar was closed so they put on free wine and snacks. The room was lovely, not very big but nicely decorated clean and fresh. Tried out the gym a couple of times, excellent. Always a wait to speak to someone at the front desk but staff were friendly enough. Used the car service a few times, note if you book you can get dropped to the airport. Great spot, not far from the other SPG properties if you are undecided on location. A couple of blocks walk to the main bars / food places.

Hello, and thanks for posting a review of your recent stay!

I am glad we were able to recognize your SPG status with a room upgrade! We love our loyal guests, and it always makes a trip that much better to receive recognition.

Thank you for mentioning SWEAT, we recently just upgraded it with all new work out equipment and are proud of it!

Thanks again, and hopefully see you next time you are in the San Diego area.

Sincerely,
Brad
