There’s something a bit special about being the first one to check out a new hotel. And hotel frequenters that get a thrill out of being the first ones to check out a new spot should keep their calendars clear on October 1, 2009. Yes folks, that’s when the new W Hotel in Barcelona opens up – one of the only W hotels in Europe!
A large, modern masterpiece, there isn’t a better city in Spain to play host to a new W hotel than Barcelona. At 473 rooms and suites, guests will get their fill of modern style, cutting-edge technology and comfort at the W Barcelona.
W Hotels has approached its spaces with both design and comfort in mind. Every W Hotel is a new chapter in their “storybook of style and soul”, and the W Barcelona is no exception!
Created by Ricardo Bofill, the W Barcelona rises above the Barcelona beachfront, and boasts great views of the city and the water and is truly going to give all of the other luxury hotels in Barcelona a run for their money.
The rooms themselves are the epitome of comfort, and guests can enjoy the W bed and W pillow menu to ensure they get the best sleep possible during their stay. In addition, room amenities include wireless high-speed internet access, luxurious bathrobes, rain forest showers, convenient iPod docking stations and flat screen TVs.
For excellent Mediterranean cuisine, enjoy a meal at WAVE, W Barcelona’s signature restaurant. Here, you’ll get your fill of Spanish tapas, Mediterranean mezze, Arabic specialties and Lebanese small plates.
The W Bar is a totally comfy lounge to enjoy a drink and enjoy seeing and being seen. Dress your best, sip on a lovely concoction and mingle with the other trendy guests.
W Barcelona has a few other bars as well, such as Eclipse (their 26th floor “mile high club”), which is uber trendy and funky – perfect for guests who want to sip on cocktails, flirt and enjoy their chic surroundings. You’ll get fabulous views of the city from Eclipse, so be sure to check this place out while you listen to world-class DJs spin soulful sounds.
If you’re lounging by the pool, take advantage of the hotel’s Wet Bar – light snacks, drinks and more will be brought to you while you lounge so that you don’t even have to move a finger!
