The 258-room W San Diego Hotel is a youthful, upscale property in Downtown San Diego, within walking distance to Broadway Pier and the Gaslamp Quarter. Modern common areas include a stylish lobby lounge, a vibrant restaurant, and a posh, happening rooftop bar. Blue-and-white rooms have chic furnishings, minibars, and cool window seats, but some are on the small side for the price. The hotel offers a (very small) heated rooftop pool surrounded by lounge chairs and a fitness center, but the fees are high for Wi-Fi and parking. The just as scene-y Andaz has bigger standard rooms and a cooler location in the Gaslamp Quarter, so it may be worth comparing rates.
