Fodor's Review

This towering sail-shape monolith dominates the skyline on the Barcelona waterfront. Architect Ricardo Bofill's W is a stunner, inside and out, from the six-story atrium lobby with its black ceramic tile floors, suspended basket chairs and glitter walls to the adjacent bar-lounge with direct access to the "Attitudes" lounge deck, chill-out divans and pool. The W positions itself as a self-contained urban resort, geared more for romantic escapes, family vacations and special events than for touristic explorations. Rooms are an elegant, minimal wash of blond-on-beige wood and textiles; beds face huge picture windows with spectacular views of the beach. Amenities include iPod docks, robes and slippers, Bliss toiletries. Features like the 30-meter infinity pool, the fully equipped gym and spa, the Whatever/Whenever inquiries desk and 24-hour concierge service add to the feeling of luxury here. Master chef Carles Abellán adds to this with the superb cuisine at his Bravo 24 restaurant.
