There is a separate counter for Elite customers but that was about all the benefits I had for being Platinum. There were better rooms available that was given to people with no status and paying a cheaper rate, while I was given an accessible room at the end of the hall with no view and it didn't have any of...

If you want to see something exceptional in Barcelona, you have to see the Renaissance in Barcelona. Stylish and new, it screams “look at me” when you enter the lobby. The rooms are all decorated with palm tree-shaped windows, and are either black or white in their decor. Food is excellent so is staff. Highly recommended.

Rooms are nice and many points of interest are a 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel. Roof bar is a great place to enjoy the view and music on some days. Service is not great and some staff were unpleasant. Will not return to this hotel. Last visit to Barcelona we stayed at the W and enjoyed a wonderful stay... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights before we took a 14 day cruise around Spain. I knew the rooms would be smaller than American hotels so that was suspected. They did have ample closet space and drawers as we did not totally unpack and just took out things we needed for those days. WE thought we were getting... More

Beware rooms are small in Europe with bathrooms that only have half shower doors. This hotel is very clean, good bar area and great bartenders. Roof top bar is nice also. It's pretty basic to me for the traditional Marriott standards. I live in Marriott around the USA for work every week. The breakfast is decent and very nice staff.... More

Unfortunately it was a quick stay but I would stay there again. First of all: location! It's very central yet not in the midst of the more touristy areas. It feels like a pretty big hotel, definitely keeping up with the Marriott group standards. The room and bathroom were nice: spacious and actually quite modern, beautiful. The only downside was...

We stayed for two nights at this ultra modern, beautiful hotel and loved the location, the staff, and the convenience of it all. The breakfast was a great way to start the day, and we would definitely stay again!

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
