Like a slice of Dubai plunked amid the formerly modest fishing enclave of Barceloneta, this gleaming 26-story W (which opened in October 2009) resembles a giant glass sail at the end of the Port Vell pier. The setting ensures that nearly all of the 473 rooms have spectacular views of the Barcelona shoreline—though the panorama is just about the only thing Spanish about the property. Everything here—from the rooms’ blandly stylish international décor to the slick rooftop bar to the Mediterranean fusion served at the Bravo restaurant—is designed to appeal to a generic modernist-chic sensibility.

Insider Tip:

Though there is a spa and a terrace infinity pool, the W’s real relaxation trump card is being the only hotel in town with direct beach access.
