Situated between the legendary Gaslamp Quarter (loaded with nightclubs, music and live entertainment) and Little Italy (home to some of the best restaurants in the city), the Renaissance San Diego (a former W hotel) is a stylish downtown hotel loaded with modern amenities. 

Hip guest rooms are styled in sleek, upscale designs and feature top-of-the-line electronics, including Bose surround-sound systems and complimentary Wi-Fi. The on-site restaurant, Kelvin, serves locally sourced cuisine with a Latin flair, and the lively rooftop bar serves signature cocktails, showcases gorgeous views of the city and is very popular with locals. 

The hotel's bustling pool area is complete with comfortable loungers where guests can unwind and soak up the sun. Guests can also opt to kick back at the state-of-the-art on-site fitness center or with in-room spa treatments.
