Never go first with your family to the W in Barcelona and then to Miami. W Barcelona is WOW,but Miami clearly not.
But let me start positive: the service is great, the breakfast table at the Dutch is great and if the cappucino is acceptable. The pool and the beacg area are super cool somis obviously the lobby.
The problems Was the room - Oasis suite. First they gave us a suite on the 3rd floor overlooking the parking lot and sold it as ocean view, then they moved us to the 7 th floor north side. Here we could see the ocean but the main view was a construction side (the next building but relatively far away). If you like sun forget all the rooms on the north side as well all the bungalows at least in Winter time. Our balcony had not for one minute sun.
The suite was very large but the quality is questionable. We had for example one air conditioning for all three rooms and either the kids where freezing or we were swetting in our room. Also the balcony chairs and table looked more like furniture in a drive in than in a W.
We also dearly missed the Nesspresso machine but Starwood seems not to understand that coffee is important.
Next time we will try some of the other cool places or hopefully the Marriott Edition is open by the.
