W San Diego is unapologetically trendy. The hotel prides itself on providing a versatile space where you can relax and recharge or go all out. Rooms have such self-affirming names as “Wonderful,” “Spectacular,” and “Fabulous,” and most provide large chalkboards so you can draw and doodle to your heart’s content. All accommodations come with Bliss bath products, a signature W bed, and down comforters and pillows. There’s even a media library with DVDs and CDs available for rent.
For those who want to see and be seen, you can start in the Living Room Lounge, where, depending on the day, you might catch film showcases, photography exhibits, and art installations. A DJ booth and bar turn it up in the evenings. Once you’ve gotten your fill of the lounge, head up to the sultry Rooftop Bar for cocktails with a view. A bonfire illuminates the terrace and sets the mood for the night. Check the hotel’s website for upcoming events.
