Just returned from 3 nights at W Barcelona staying on floor 15.
I would suggest this is predominantly a business corporate training/hospitality/over night stay hotel. Lots of meetings over laptops going on in the bar lounge areas all day and into the evening. A great venue for a training course. However not so brilliant as a relaxed tourist hotel, you will be constantly reminded of work!
Staff Service: Service was in our opinion either very good or very bad. Staff greeting was friendly and welcoming and room service was prompt and polite. However breakfast service on the ground floor was bad for us, we had to ask for a cup of tea 4 times before it finally arrived! Staff had a se la vie attitude when I politely complained. If you can, go for breakfast on floor E the service is much improved. Room: Room definitely had the wow factor in terms of the view which is the crowning glory of the hotel. Best to share the room with someone you know well. The toilet and shower are in separate frosted glass cubicals and they are not sound proof! The sink is in the open plan area of the room divided from the bed area by a curtain that pulls across half of the room, it does not divide the room. The window has a long window seat/couch which was stained in our room. There is a cocktail tray with glasses and booze on a small table over the couch, if you move this out of the way it will be returned to the same place each day which is annoying as it is easy to knock this over.
