Definitely NOT 5-star. Large hotel: but understaffed. Elevators out of service for long periods. Repeat calls to “whatever/whenever” service desk with no answer. Some nice party venues (but don’t have to stay at the W to experience that). Will try another hotel next time.

Loved everything about the W. One of my favorites and the place to stay in Barcelona. So happy they gave us our room early and we were able to enjoy the day by the pool.
