Hotel Rooms Rennovation
In January 2017 the Hotel W Barcelona announced the transformation of its 473 guest rooms and suites. The cutting-edge new design is inspired by the hotel’s 24/7 energy and privileged location on the shores of the buzzing Barceloneta. W Hotel’s award-winning in-house design team has partnered with London-based design studio Bowler James Brindley to reimagine the hotel.
W Barcelona’s new room design celebrates both the city and the sea and embraces the unique views afforded by the hotel’s guest rooms. The colour palette is derived from the blue hues of the sea, with pops of white, teal and rose gold to accentuate the light and complement the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The notion of underwater camouflage is displayed in the room’s carpet, which is designed to represent playful interpretation of the sea bed seen through the waters of the Mediterranean.
In a nod to Barcelona’s celebrated culinary scene, the modular furniture in the sitting area is designed to reflect the Spanish tapas culture – chic, small tables and chairs with pendant lighting that combine to create a beautiful whole. The Barcelona city grid comes to life on the guest room wall with an innovative lighting structure that transforms the mood from day to night. The new rooms also feature signature accent pillows showcasing modern images of iconic characters from Barcelona’s history including Gaudí, Dalí and St. Eulalia.
In addition to the new room design, all guest rooms will feature a range of new in-room services including Nespresso coffee machines, tea making facilities, 49-inch flat-screen televisions and Bose blue-tooth sound systems. Each room and suite also has signature W amenities including: the Bliss® Spa sinkside six bath products, the signature W Hotels Bed, access to high-speed WiFi and the brand’s signature Whatever/Whenever® service, which provides guests whatever they want, whenever they want it.
Furthermore, in a nod to the city’s reputation as one of the party capitals of the world, W Hotels also recently announced that W Barcelona will soon be home to the first W Sound Suite in Europe, a private music studio and writer’s room for professional recording artists, studio musicians, as well as hotel guests, to record in style while on the road.
