Great location

The only great thing about this hotel is the location. It's is perfectly located on the beach and within an area walking distance of local eating establishments. Depending on ones health this hotel is also within walking distance of Barcelona's main attraction (the zoo, Sagrada Familia, etc) and the metro. That's the only good thing about this hotel. If you decide to stay at this hotel be prepared to pay for the air you breathe; for the price of the rooms you don't get anything free as you would at what one would call a normal hotel. No free breakfast, wifi, you can't even go to the 26 floor to the Eclipse bar/club as a guest of the hotel without being dressed to the Tee. I've been to quite a few hotel but this hotel has the worst check-in process ever. They do not offer early check-in so be prepared to wait at least two hours after the normal check-in time (3:00pm). The hotel rooms are nice but if you have allergies make sure you bring your medicine because the rooms are really dusty.

Enjoyed our stay!

We had just spent 4 days in London, then 5 days in Paris, and Barcelona was our last leg of the journey for 4 nights, and couldnt have been more pleased with our stay at the W in Barcelona. Do to the location we had to cab everywhere, but the view from the room was spectacular of the city and beach. Floor to ceiling windows. The stay was quiet at night, and the pool bar area was fun.....we also enjoyed the Bliss Spa.

A real treat!

Lovely stay in W hotel. staff couldn't do enough to make our stay as wonderful as our room description - Wonderful A good 30 min walk to las ramblas but to be honest if its too hot to contemplate there are taxis outside the hotel that cost approx 5 euros I would say the hotel is better than described on the website. Lovely atmosphere, views and very much enjoyed the music. A few little extras that are memorable - ices by the pool, towels for the beach.....bliss Ive tried hard to think of a negative and could only come up with a shortage of hooks in the bedroom for the luxurious bath robes Recommend to anyone who likes a little piece of heaven for a few days.

wonderful hotel, wi-fi not free, location is just ok

the luxury of this hotel is outstanding... if you plan on never leaving the hotel, this is the place to stay. however, plan on paying for wi-fi in your room, which is ridiculous for a hotel of this stature. Location is not good if you plan to wander around central barcelona. It is located at the end of a peninsula and you always have to travel along the whole peninsula to get to and from the main shopping and nightlife areas.

Excellent for any life occasion.

In my opinion this W, strikes the perfect equilibrium for anyone. There were newlyweds, families with little ones, business travelers, and all seemed to be pretty happy. The perfect location makes it easy to reach popular landmarks, yet shelters you from the crowd. The rooms are adorned with spectacular viiew and expensive furnishing. Eclipse bar offers excellent choice of music and well mixed drinks. Perhaps it all compensates for shortcomings in whenever whatever service. Freindliness aside they could be helpful. The idea is great, the execution is poor

Bad taste in my mouth

Had an unbelievable experience until the last day! Bar upstairs was great. Stephen made great drinks. On the last day I went through my personal belongings to realize that I was robbed by house keeping for one thousand dollars. My money was hidden extremely well which means that my personal stuff was rummaged through. Not something that you exoect from a star wood property. When I told the manager her response was less them comforting. I was basically told there was nothing that they could do. I expected more from an SPG property especially being an SPG member.
