I stayed over two different weekends at this Renaissance hotel in Barcelona and I couldn't be more happier about it.
The location is excellent, one block from Passeig de Gracia where all the best shops and restaurants are. The street is quiet and easy to get to. The train station to the airport is only one block from the hotel and the Metro just two blocks.
As a platinum rewards member I received an upgrade to a bigger corner room. It was very spacious with a big king size bed which was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was also pretty big and very functional with lots of high end goodies to use. I loved the wooden floors as they are much cleaner than the regular carpet you find in other hotels. It had a big closet and a mini fridge which I don't know why it wasn't full as other Marriott AC hotels I've been around Spain. The A/C worked great and so did the WiFi internet connection.
The rate included breakfast which was a great buffet style with lots of selections to choose from. Hot and cold options and good coffee machines.
The staff was great and very attentive each time to facilitate my needs. I forgot a pair of reading glasses and they help me ship them back so I could recover them. I can't thank more the stuff for assisting me in preparing and tracking my package.
As I said before, I couldn't be more happier to have chosen this Marriott hotel in Barcelona. Great location, great rooms and excellent guest service. I will definitely recommend it and come back on my next trip to Barcelona!
