This is a wonderful hotel, one of the best SPG hotels in Europe. We had a long weekend with two teenagers and the mix of city and beach was just wonderful. I can recommend this hotel and the resort.

Just like the image of other W hotels worldwide, this one did not disappoint. Stayed for six nights and we throughly enjoyed the experience.

Guest room
The tag line for the room will be intimate, as there's nothing that separate you between the shower/restroom area with the bedroom. One suggestion is, make sure that you're staying with someone you know really well :). The concept is modern and stylish and bed is comfortable. Ensure to stay on the high floor facing downtown, it's quite a view in both day and night time.

Facilities
W Bar is the place to be to unwind and relax. Be adventurous and sip the house specialties prepared by experienced mixologists. I had Sea Breeze (I think) and it was good. Breakfast was good with adequate spread. I had continental and it got me through late lunch. Had dinner at wave for a couple of nights and both were good. Gym is spacious! Probably one of the biggest hotel gyms I've ever been to, and with good workout range. Spa was full when we made enquiry, but I had some treatments at Bliss before so I'm sure it's great.
We made a stop at Eclipse, where hotel guest will get priority. The view was stunning but! that night we smelled vomit so we're out of there in five minutes.

Location
Some people said that the location's a bit far from all the actions. True, but for us, the morning stroll by the beach from the hotel to near by La Barcelonetta (rows of seafood restaurant, a bit of tourist trap) and the marina was enjoyable.

Suggestions
Had a table reserved at Principal for NYE dinner and we had the worst (and the most expensive) dinner ever. The fish were raw and the service was poor. We were baffled by how the nonchalant response about the incident.
Restaurant Barceloneta - Over priced and overrated. The restaurants down the street probably will get you better seafood with much less money.
Catalana - The best! The best tapas we had in Spain (and we went to many). We were there past midnight and the place was packed! Great ambiance (more locals than tourists), great tapas and great sangria! We'll be back for sure.

What a truly amazing location - could not be more perfect. Stayed in a room on the 18th floor with the perfect view over the beach and the city. You will not be disappointed. I was particularly impressed with the staff who were welcoming and could not do enough to help with suggestions for visits etc. W stands for WONDERFUL!

Room Tip: Pay for it!

Traveling alone with no command of the Spanish or Catalan language was intimidating to say the least. The staff at W helped me at every turn to feel welcome and safe in a new place. The view of the Mediterranean was spectacular, and although the walk into town was a bit longer than if I had stayed in the center, it was a treat to walk past the beautiful port every evening on the way home.

Room Tip: Ask and you will receive.

This is a great, new modern hotel. Maybe one of the best W Hotels in the world. Two things go along with this -- attitude and price. But both of those are outweighed by the cool rooms and great views. As a SPG Plat, was upgraded to a cool corner suite. Just breathtaking...One other negative, they are a bit removed from city center and getting a taxi can be difficult -- and it is very far to walk.
