Great getaway!

My experience was great! Staff was helpful and friendly. The environment was attractive and pleasant. The room was small but very comfortable and all the necessities were provided. Located within easy walking distance to many interesting places.Really appreciated the Acura car service! The only disappointment was the ice machine on my floor was not working.

Rooms & decor a bit funky, but then, its the W

It was OK given that the lobby was undergoing renovation.

Nice hotel, great location, nice stay!

The hotel is very edgy and chic. I liked the decor and the design. I had a nice room with a view of the ocean. I loved waking up to that view. The staff was nice for the most part. I didn't like the woman at the concierge desk. She was a bit rude to my taste and I did not ask for anything special. All I wanted was a car to take me to a venue. I ended up taking a cab after the way she responded. Did not want to deal with her. The other guy at the Whenever desk was way nicer and helpful, but I think he was only there on the daytime. Also, my room seemed clean when I first walked there, but after a few hours I noticed food crumbs on the bench next to the window (yikes.) The next morning the housekeeper did not throw all the trash away from my bathroom. Not a biggy, but it is a lot nicer to walk into a clean bathroom. Locationwise, I was very happy because the whole reason of my trip was to go to a concert at 4th and B, and the venue is about 6 blocks away. In the daytime I walked to the Horton Plaza. It is not far at all either. Lastly, it is a hotel where a lot of guests like to have their little after-parties. I had one next to my room. I could hear people screaming and laughing so hard, it was ridiculous. I tried to call front desk, but they did not answer the phone. The party stopped at around 4:30am. I know so because that is when I finally could sleep. Before booking, I read other reviews, so I wasn't surprised that happened. I guess I should've joined the party. Other than that, I had a nice stay. I went to the gym, the pool and the restaurant downstairs. It is a beautiful hotel, but beware of the noise outside. After all it is downtown and when the sun goes down, its nightlife comes alive.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

If you want to go somewhere at night and would like to use their car service to get you there, call concierge and make a reservation. They did not tell me that I needed to make reservation, but once you go to concierge she told me I had to or wait for their next car available. I took a cab.

Below Average

Paid extra on Orbitz to book for a 2 room 2 queen bed. Arrived and was told that one of the room will be king's bed. Extremely disappointed. Because they took FOREVER to deliver our extra twin bed into the 1 king bed room. And our 2 queen bed was a HANDICAPPED room. Will not stay here again.

Football weekend

Nice modern hotel. Couldn't ask for anything more for the price. I also left my 2000.00 dollar necklace in the room and it was returned. So they are upstanding also.
