The W Barcelona Hotal rises high above the Mediterranean, in one of the most modern cities of Spain.
Ricardo Bofill, a fabled architect specialized on modern styles, has penned down the magnificent building, while its decorations and detailing were planned by Charles Farruggio. It comprises a total of 473 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, endowed with typical Spanish modern luxury and opulence.
Ricardo Bofill is a Spanish architect. He was born in Barcelona and his father was also an architect and builder. He studied at French Lyceum , School of Top Technology of Architecture of Barcelona and in the University of Geneva.
In 1985 he was elected an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects. Bofill is one of the leading representatives of the postmodern style of contemporary architecture.
The official description of the hotel states that the hotel can be found along “the famed boardwalk of La Barceloneta” and that it brings a brand new style of entertainment, culinary experiences, nightlife, hospitality and recreation into the life of residents and tourists. The monstrous construction provides superb panoramas of the city and the sea, along with a special Whatever/Whenever service that’s poised to fulfill everyone’s desires.
The rooms are decorated in a crisp white with bright color accents, and the signature lighting that makes the W so unique.
Upon entering the lobby your senses will be filled with sights, sounds and textures, fully stimulating your senses. True to W form, everything is bright vibrant colors with lots of lighting effects for the ultimate cool. The walls near the elevator are a cool 3D pinned wall paper that is just asking to be touched.

With lots of restaurants, bars and entertainment right on the door step you will never run out of things to do.
