Rated 5 out of 5 by Chase123 The W Barcelona
This is a superb hotel located right on the beach facing the Mediterranean. Staff are very knowledgable, warm and accommodating. Rooms, poolside and all common spaces are spotless and chic. This hotel offers a spectacular design experience with a cool, breezy, ambience throughout. Top-notch in every way. The pool-side DJ was a special touch that we adored. We'll be back!

We were staying at the W for the Sónar Festival in Barcelona and had a wonderful time. The hotel is the talk of the town, the staff is brilliant, the breakfast incredible.
Our overall experience was so good that we hardly wanted to leave the hotel's facilities to explore Barcelona.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fiona22 Great seaviews but poor services
This hotel is beautifully located near the coast. Full seaview in the room. It was so beautiful to watch the sunset and sunrise. However, the quality of services fails to achieve a "wow" factor which the hotel has tried to promise. Instances include:- 1. The yound blond lady at the "whatever" desk does not know what she is doing. When we asked for locations, she told us to ask the taxi driver and was reluctant to give us a map; 2. When we asked for late check out, the front desk staff member was rude; 3. There was a new eve party at the lobby. The noise was so loud that we were unable to sleep til 6 am; 4. We cannot close the toilet door no matter how hard we tried; 5. Water leakage from the shower room is a constant problem. Being a starwood member and having stayed at other 5 star hotels, I must say I am fairly disappointed by this hotel. Staff in general are not friendly. This hotel has failed to deliver the 'wow' factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich2809 One of the nearly greats
I love this hotel. Rooms and suites are spacious and comfortable. The staff always friendly and some of the best restaurants and bars in any hotel.
I had room service for lunch, roast chicken, very delicious
It is everything the W brand encapsulates, stylish and sophisticated.
Only slight niggles
No coffee in room
Insanely complicated lighting, TV system

Rated 5 out of 5 by 14trip Room with a view!
A little gasp escaped my lips as I entered the fabulous room at the W in Barcelona. I could not have been more pleased with the spectacular view and the comfortable setting. I would go back to the W any time I was in Barcelona, and I would ask for the very same room. It was the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by giumira A MUST HAVE, WITH FEW IMPROVEMENTS TO DO
The stay, because of the REM of Guess, was amazing. very beautiful room, 22nd floor, sea view, ultra clean and silent.
Perfect staff, quick elevators, super location. very good breakfast.
Improvements: free wi fi in all rooms, it's unbelievable that a 5* GL do not provide it.
The catering wasn't amazing, Food has to improve.
Overall, a very good stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great stay, one of my favorite hotels!
The W Barcelona is beautiful with a wealth of amenities. The pool area is a great place to relax, there are a variety of food options, and it is situated right on the beach. We were upgraded to a corner suite and had breathtaking views of the harbor and the Mediterranean. The staff was incredibly friendly and willing to offer anything we needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meelas My Stay @ W Barcelona
Overall, excellent hotel w.r.t. comfort, privacy and a very clean/safe environment.
The one concern I had was that the front desk staff did not follow-up with a simple request. In the hospitality business....small things matter and when these needs are not met...the guest feels that they are not valued by the Hotel....and that is what I felt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marcel12 The room was too loud
We went last saturday to hotel W in Barcelona and we got room nr. 2404. The disco was on the 26 floor. We could hear the hard music untill 5.00 o'clock. The fact that the room had "ear plugs" means that the hotel knows houpw loudy this room is. Even with ear plugs we couldn't sleep. We were very tired in the morning. This is unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pro12 Jackie is a great example of perfect Service
The service is the best here. Stayed at the hotel and checked out Eclipse a few times. Jackie in particular was very attentive. Each time we were there, she went above and beyond - providing us with menus when we were hungry, recommending dishes, drinks and constantly checking on us without being intrusive. Will definitely return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ElTiberon Great Resort Hotel with limitations
This new W resort hotel drives really your WOW-effect! The only bad thing is, when travelling during the summer (main season): you will not get a table at the main restaurants, even you tried to book 24h in advance. So why staying in a hotel where you cannot dine? Similar if you want to get a place at the beach or at the pool - all full!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoanSherlock Wonderful experience except for dry cleaning service
My week at the W was wonderful in all ways with the limitation of the Dry Cleaning. An expensive wool turtleneck was returned smaller by approx. 4 sizes. Good for a four year old, but not a tall woman. the hotel to it's credit is following up on this, I'm looking forward to resolution. I am being helped by Miriam.Vico.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vienna Room not clean
I stayed with my wife for our anniversary one week in the hotel. The room we had was not cleaned very well and the non-smoking room had a burned hole from a cigarette on the night-table.
The roses which I orderd with the reservation were not delivered at our anniversary.
I was surprised that the service at wet deck was so poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Khaled83 Romantic location
Had a warm welcome from the hotel staff, I was upgraded to the cool corner suite which had a fabulous view ( breathtaking views of sunrise/sunset along the sea). The design of the hotel and rooms where very artistic.The location was romantic where I took long walks with my wife on the beach.
Highly recommended for romantic getaways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MattDubai Great 4 days stay
I have high expectation at a W and Barcelona did not disappoint. Great location, facilities, and food!. Upgrades to a corner suite on arrival and everything was excellent. Especially great were the staff at check in, the bar staff and hostess at the Eclipse lounge and the waitresses at breakfast. Could not ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chappaquamom Loved our stay
The hotel could not have been nicer. Let us use pool and beach even though our room not ready and we arrived 9 am from cruise ship. fun vibe in hotel. room fabulous. Only complaint is hotel is far to get to, so cabs more expensive from here when trying to go to other parts of city. But you have the beach here so it is a trade-off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zo1947 W was wonderful
Had a great visit to Barcelona. The hotel was great. The staff was very responsive and helpful. The only downside was the distance from most attractions. The hotel is on the beach, which is not a big factor in the winter. The view from the room was very nice. We used room service frequently, it was always correct and good quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skygal food/beverage service extremely lengthy
The food /beverage service at pool, bar and restaurant took a very long time. It took about an hour to receive our appetizers and drinks came after the appetizers were delivered.
Not notified at reservation that visit was not eligible for Starwood points. Also visit was not recorded on My SPG account even if it was not eligible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome Hotel with breathtaking view of Mediterranean
This hotel offers the breathtaking view of the sea.
The walk along the beach offers is a good experience and there are many good restaurants within the walking distance.
The hotel staffs have been very friendly from the moment we checked in.
This is definitely one hotel that we'll be back to stay if we come to Barcelona again.
