We were really excited to stay at the W on our trip to Barcelona last week. The pictures looked gorgeous and it had gotten great reviews.

We ate in the hotel and later went to Eclipse on the 26th floor. Our room was spacious and had a lovely view of the water. Everyone in the group loved the hotel... More

We stayed at the W for 2 nights prior to our cruise, and loved every minute of our stay. After reading other reviews, I sent an email requesting a higher floor in the tower building with a sea view. I also let them know that we were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. We arrived at the hotel at 10:30 am... More

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in September and it was amazing! The views from the rooms are gorgeous, overlooking the beach and city. The pool has such a cool vibe, with great music playing and even better cocktails :) The W Insider, Pamela, was the best. She is so friendly and helpful and gave us awesome recommendations... More

Didn't stay but took my mother for a cocktail. As we walked into the hotel lobby we were approached by "security", who asked if he could help, when told we wanted to visit the bar, he just said come back at 7pm.The implication being leave the building until then. He did seem rather off hand and not terribly friendly. So... More
