Anyone who has had the pleasure of staying at a W Hotel knows that it is a visual treat and that the hotel itself can be as much the destination as the city they are visiting. With no exception, the new W Hotel San Diego by Mister Important Design is a lush wonderland of design that, as with all W Hotels, reflects its cultural and geographical location.
Guests are greeting by a soaring lobby that is a mixture of rich oranges, reds and golds, which are reminiscent of the Californian sunset while driftwood pendants add a layer of texture and reference the beach that Southern Californian’s hold so dear. The real fun however is on the roof (as always!) with a lounge bar providing the perfect place for a sundowner and with an impressive towering pile of Emeco navy chairs providing a permanent bonfire. With the restaurant providing a cool mixture of ocean blues and the signature oranges, the entire design ensures that guest are delivered an authentic and very cool W Hotel and Californian experience.
