Sigh. I have to say that I loved staying at this hotel. We spotted it and admired it on our first trip to Barcelona back in 2010. At that time we also visited Sagrada Familia and I made a note saying that we hoped to be back before the completion in 2030. We made good on that promise a couple months ago. Just looking at these photos puts a smile on my face. After teaching at the KDS event, we switched hotels to the gorgeous W, located right on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed our view and though it was a bit far from a few things we wanted to see, the walk was totally manageable -even at 23 weeks pregnant. We could walk to the Metro station, or just hop into a cab to get to various restaurants or sites. And the breakfast at the hotel? One of my favorites - with smoothies and a plethora of options from fresh fruits to French toast and bacon. And the bed?! One of the best we've slept in. Seriously considering getting one of these for our new home. Starwood Hotels once again gets our vote. We will certainly return once again before 2030.
