Easily spotted from a plane as you coast over the Mediterranean toward the airport, the W Hotel is a standout property that sits right on the beach and towers over the Barcelona playa.

Although seemingly off the beaten path, the W Barcelona is a quick bus or cab ride to the city’s best sights, or if you prefer to walk, a scenic stroll along the boardwalk. Inside the 26 floors of luxury and modernity, 473 rooms await and offer incomparable views of the Mediterranean and Barcelona’s beaches.


For spectacular sunset views and tropical cocktails, take the elevator to the top floor where the stylish Eclipse Bar serves colorful beverages and plays a variety of electronic music for late-nighters. If you prefer the open air, choose from a cocktail at Salt Beach Club or an evening of relaxation at one of the private cabanas on the sun deck.

When you’re hit with a craving for authentic Catalan cuisine, Bravo24 has your appetite covered from traditional breakfasts to extravagant seafood dinners.


The W Barcelona may have plenty of reasons to stay within the hotel walls, but the staff also plans outdoor activities to get your blood pumping, including beachside group runs and stand-up paddle boarding and yoga. After a beachy workout, head back inside to the two-story Bliss Spa for a myriad of services, and even a brownie bar!

Products That Help You Sleep While Traveling

You've planned every last detail of your trip, from the perfect accommodations to tours to enjoy, but overlooked one crucial element: sleep. Travel and time changes throw off our circadian rhythms and lead to sleep loss. However, sleep deprivation can dull your response time, throw you into a depression, age your skin and pack on the pounds. It also just makes you irritable during much-deserved vacation time. Although you may not be able to restore your sleep to its full capacity on the road, you can get more rest with these products that help you sleep while traveling.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
