Review:   Recommended for: International Jet Set

Pros: This hotel, like its neighbor The Arts is sleek and super, super modern. Terrific views of sea and city. You have to like the super modern W thing. Rooms are spacious and the staff are absolutely wonderful here. It helps to have the booking done by me with Virtuoso so you can take advantage of the benefits.

Cons: Food and drink is pricey. Location is beautiful but a bi away from the center of things in Barcelona.
