W Barcelona recently unveiled a multi-million Euro transformation of all 473 guest rooms and suites, making the hotel the ultimate Mediterranean oasis. The award-winning in-house design team at W Hotels partnered with London-based design studio Bowler James Brindley to reimagine the hotel, inspired by the never-ending energy found on the shores of the buzzing Barcelona.
Since its inception, the hotel is one of the most distinctive landmarks along the Barcelona coast, famed for its iconic sail-shape and unprecedented sea views. With fashion events, product launches and high profile guests, W Barcelona has made a bold impression on both locals and international jetsetters alike.
The redesign celebrates both the city and the sea, embracing the striking views from guest rooms. The color 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 a playful interpretation of the sea bed seen through the waters of the Mediterranean.
