So, you know how most 5 star hotels seem to cater to an "older" clientele and the fun hotels are usually cheap hostels in a bad location? Well, look no further. W Barcelona is a true world-class property that has an ultra-modern lounge, amazing pool area with bar and a priceless location/view from every room. My wife and I were there during the Spanish Grand Prix weekend and were greeted by a decent DJ playing at the check in. The hotel is an architectural marvel, that's both new and technologically advanced rooms with mood lighting etc. There are a lot of gadgets to explore in this well thought out hotel. The view from our 25th floor room was breathtaking and we were only a couple of floors down from the awesome club located on the top floor. The pool area is also increadibly trendy and fun...did I mention that already? The hotel is right next to the beach and only a short walk from cool restaurants, central Barcelona and one of the marinas. We got the special benefit of running into Michael Schumacher a couple of times since he was staying there also. This was an exceptional experience we would love to repeat! Highly recommended if you're not on a budget and not in your 60s.
