Last week we took a random visit to Barcelona’s newest and (one of the coolest) hotels in the city. The Edition Barcelona is the luxury high brand from the Marriott chain. It boasts 100 rooms, all designed to an extremely high standard – what would you expect from a hotel project with the influence of Ian Shraeger?
Set in one of the trendiest parts of the city, the hotel offers amenities for visitors and locals alike. Brunch on the terrace was a very pleasant affair, completed with 360° views of Barcelona and a fully loaded bar.
What struck me most about the hotel was the amazing service and hospitality from everyone. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, including bringing up our brunch from the restaurant on the ground floor up to the 10th floor terrace. We met Edwin the director just per chance and he kindly offered to give us a full sight visit, explaining the philosophy behind the hotel. Here is an impressive fact: the 220 staff were hand-picked from an interviewing process of over 20,000 applications – that’s dedication.
The hotel has still not officially opened as the launch has been planned for September, but for now, LifestyleDMC can report that this hotel will be a stunning addition to the admirable array of high end boutique hotels in the Marriott collection.
