This is our last time for our first trip to Europe after 2 years hiatus because of the pandemic. I had so many people recommend this hotel as one of the best in Barcelona. The staff has been friendly and the rooftop is very lovely, but the room is the size of a shoebox. As an Amex platinum member, I usually receive an upgrade as is, as well as always ask. They said no and that none were available spite when originally booking just yesterday I saw that bigger rooms were available for my dates. My boyfriend and I cannot even maneuver around the bed and based on the map we have the smallest room the hotel even offers. The bed is very comfy but the room is so loud. We can constantly hear people in the hall and movement above us, as if it’s a motel. The view is just industrial buildings as well with sunlight coming in even with my OCD-level attempt at sealing the curtains. I’m really disappointed as I bit the bullet to spend a hefty amount to stay here and was expecting a lot more. However, we have 2 days left and I won’t let it ruin the last days of my 2 week trip, just was hoping for something better and at the level of what I paid for. Very comfy robes and treats delivered.…
To summarize: I share what the other reviewer Dewon R wrote in saying that the hotel is NOT Marriott loyalist friendly. As a guy who spends 150-200 nights a year in Marriott properties, I've seen and experienced it all - from the lowliest Moxys and Alofts to the St. Regis, Ws, and Ritzes. So let me be honest in saying that the Edition was underwhelming at best if you're used to the usual VIP treatment at any other Marriott property. To be fair, it wasn't all bad, here's an honest, objective breakdown: Pros: - Modern, new, great view. Rooms have nice finishing. - Nice rooftop bar with some select seats for in-houseguests. - Friendly staff who try their best and are helpful. - The interior design is like a grayer color palette of the W. Cons: - No breakfast (first time in 10 years as a Titanium member that I was not given any). - No lounge to compensate for the loss of said breakfast ^ - Not a big room upgrade (first time in a decade I didn't get a suite as a Titanium). - Someone woke me up from a nap in the afternoon to 'check the minibar' and didn't even apologize when I told them I was taking a siesta. - Atmosphere can be a bit pretentious. AKA: kind of people who do things 'for the gram' probably like this place. I've stayed at many hotels in Barcelona and preferred Le Meridien and even the Renaissance over this one. Sure, they're not as trendy, but not only more centrally located but offer way more despite being having the price. But above all, my main problem with this property is of they don't want to recognize Marriott brand loyalists and Elite members, then why be part of the Marriott chain in the first place? Just stay independent.…
Great Hotel Location and Outstanding Staff and Service. I would especially like to recognize Mr Munir Viñas.. I had left my wallet in room and ìt was found a day later but I was at the Westin in Valencia.. 300 + KM Mr Viñas volunteered to take the train to Valencia to return wallet.. as we would be going to Croatia in 48 hours. My "Readers Choice" Lifetime Award 😀... Muchas Gracia to all at EDITION and Westim
My partner and I were so excited to stay at this new hotel as the finale to our amazing weeklong trip exploring Spain. With the price per night close to 250 Euro for a basic room, we expected a lot (especially given that I am a Lifetime Platinum Bonvoy member). Sadly, we were disappointed and actually checked out early and switched to the Le Meridian after 2 nights, where we received the type of service and benefits, I am accustomed to for Platinum Elite members (complimentary breakfast and huge suite upgrade). Let’s start with the Pros: - Very modern new hotel. With great finishes - Staff are all impeccably dressed - The Rooftop is beautiful- amazing views of the city. Good drinks and food - Breakfast was delicious - They sent me a delicious chocolate dessert as they knew we celebrating my belated birthday - Great location and great products in the bathroom (Le Labo) And now the cons: - This hotel is not for you if you are an Elite Bonvoy member. You do not get breakfast as a benefit. We were offered the “special price” of 19 Euro each for breakfast. We decided to try it out on our last day there. While very delicious, upon checkout, they tried to charge me 68 Euro for breakfast! This was resolved eventually. - For the price you pay per night here, I was underwhelmed. The room is tiny, although modern. I was told I was “upgraded”- the upgrade was basically the same room with a couch at the window. And the view from the couch? 3 giant trashcans. Very disappointing - There is very minimal closet space. No bedside drawers for storage. 2 of the drawers in the closet were occupied with bar items for purchase which I had to empty and use for clothes. The bed is also very Soft- if you like firm beds or accustomed to Marriott’s heavenly beds, be warned. Also, after about 5 failed requests for “firm pillows”, we were finally sent what they called their firmest pillows, which were honestly subpar- we had to use the throw pillows from the couch to get some neck support. - When we tried to check out early due to our unhappiness, we were told we would be charged an extra night- so we were forced to stray an extra night. Upon arriving back in New York, I noticed that the tip we left on the rooftop bar the first day was charged as 14 Euro, instead of the 4 Euro which I distinctly remember leaving as the tip on the receipt- very sketchy. I did not complain, as it is totally not worth it. - The bar has great views and great food and drinks but honestly is way overpriced. - After spending over 650 Euros for 2 nights at this hotel, I was only credited 2500 Bonvoy points for this stay which definitely seemed incorrect. When I contacted Bonvoy customer services about it, they immediately adjusted it to the correct amount of over 10,000 points. Overall, we were very disappointed. If you want a modern hotel and don’t care about things like Elite benefits, storage for your clothes or sleeping comfort, then go for it. I do not think this hotel compares remotely to other 5-star Marriott hotels we stayed at during this Spain vacation (Maria Cristina in San Sebastien; Hotel Marqués de Riscal in El Ciego; Le Meridian in Barcelona). Our next stay at Barcelona, we will stick to the Le Meridian for sure!…
We had an amazing stay at The Barcelona EDITION! The COVID protocols were just right and they shared so much information about the wonderful city. We were able to enjoy both breakfast and dinner at Bar Veraz as well as an afternoon at the rooftop pool - highly recommend both! Thank you Inigo Roy for your team’s exceptional work!
