    >>>[My Room & Views @The W Barcelona - Jan. 2019]<<<


    If you’ve had the fortune of visiting Barcelona in the past 10 years, you probably have at least seen the W Hotel, on the Barceloneta.  If not, look out for it - it will awe you!  In Barcelona, this hotel is an icon to the city.    El Hotel Vela (Sail Hotel), as it’s been popularly named due to its shape, is a beauty!  I have been wanting to stay at the W Barcelona since its opening on 2009, and this time was it!  

    I arrived at sunset and got the reflection on its glass walls… quite a welcome!  Jordi San Jose, part of the W Insider Team, had me set on every detail during my stay: from a tour of the property upon my arrival, to a beautiful upgraded room on the 24th Floor with its Barceloneta view of the Balearic Sea!  I could not get myself to close those curtains at ANY time during my 4-night stay… I got to see the sunrise every morning - what a sight!  

    A picture is worth a thousand words!  

    Here, my daily sunrise (with coffee, milk & sugar, PLEASE):

    The W sure made me feel special… starting with a complimentary Tempranillo - excellent way to unpack!  The hotel’s hip décor is sooo vibrant and full of life!  The food and service @ WLounge was superb.  Loved the Rooftop Bar, Eclipse, with great music, ambiance and gorgeous view out to the sea.

    I did not have a chance to try Bravo 24, THE Signature Restaurant @ The W of the famous Michelin-Starred Catalan Chef, Carles Abellan.  Hopefully next time!

    Thank you to all the Team @ The W Barcelona.    

    BIG special THANK YOU to: Miguel (@ W Concierge), Alicia (@ Bliss, W Spahh), Daniel/Agatha/Guille (@ W Lounge), Aleix (Restaurants & Bars Manager @ The W) & last but certainly not least, to Jordi (W Insider).

    W Barcelona, you were above my expectations!
