... with red wine.We left it sit for a bit and poured it over ice. It was great! The bartender gave us some more orange and pineapple juice and we took the pitcher back to our room to use up the bottles of Merlot we had gotten comped to us on ship. I added Truvia to the pitcher instead of simple syrup to keep the calories down! Ha! That ship had sailed too!

... in some ways as it depicts the Passion or crucifiction – it is not yet complete. The third is yet to be built and involves the demolition of 3 blocks of apartments, built illegally on land designated for the completion of the church by developers, whose thinking at the time was that that the church would never be completed – it will depict the “Glory” or resurrection. Every detail of this extraordinary building has been meticulously thought out ...
Well we were going to the beach but it's cloudy so decided to head for the park instead.
Tried the bus for the first time and we were congratulating ourselves then it broke down assign.
It was just fine going home so I think that was pretty unusual.
Gaudi had a different vision from the rest of us that's for sure!
... restaurants on my list had a line out the door. We found a third restaurant, all of the same chain, that was hidden around the corner. We only had to wait a few minutes before being seated. I've been determined to try the seafood paella before leaving Spain. This was my opportunity, though this restaurant looked touristy enough that I feared it would be their cheap meal to please the masses. We ordered an appetizer of stuffed peppers ...

Historical Traveler Reviews AC Hotel Barcelona Forum by Marriott
Great modern hotel. Perfect service. Every aspect of your need catered for.
My girlfriend and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. So what did I think?
Having stayed at other 4*& 5* hotels within the city centre previously, we were 'wow-ed'by this hotel on first impressions. The hotel is very contemporary and kept immaculately clean. The pool,gym,jacuzzis and sun deck have fantastic views over the nearby beach and Med. The rooms are clean and modern and again have superb views, and at last, a bath wide enough to fit your shoulders into! The nearby transport links to city centre were very frequent,cheap clean,and safe.
Lovely for a stay on business
This is a lovely hotel for a business stay. The rooms were clean and well decorated with modern furnishings that are perfect for the space. The rooms are not huge which doesn't really matter if you are only sleeping there anyway. On the downside, the front desk staff were not very helpful or efficient and there is no safe in the room. On the upside, the gym is great, the view is amazing no matter what side of the hotel you're on, the conference centre is a two minute walk away, the metro is close and the room has a CD player which is a nice touch so don't forget to bring your discs!
Previous reviews put me off a little, but what a surprise this hotel was. Beautifully tiled and minimalistically styled hotel. Staff very polite and helpful.
Bedroom spacious, cd player, good hair drier, free mini bar, nice complementary toiletries, stylish glass sink and bathroom door.
Buffet breakfast great and plentiful, 24 hour bar. Fair sized outdoor swimming pool, 3 jaccuzis, steam room, sauna, gym.
The conference centre was just next door, yards away. But best of all there is a fabulous shopping centre right opposite the hotel with lots and lots of fab shops, some bars/cafes and a cinema. I have been to Barcelona twice before and it is a few train stops away from the main tourist area but ideal for a break. Felt very safe in this area.
We were transferred here as our original hotel was overbooked etc, on first impression nice but a little isolated, not as close to the marina as we had hoped, but it was near the beach and had a pool. As we wanted a break from the kids this was ideal as very peacful and restful, we did our sightseeing at night, overall we enjoyed our stay here and would go back.
Brand new modern hotel
Great hotel outside of the busy areas, but still accessable with public transport. Very nice view. Very clean and good value for money. Will go back anyday.
Good for what it is... a congress hotel
Essentially I agree with the reviewer who said "If you don't like modern, hype hotels, far from the city centre (almost in the middle of nowhere!) never stay in this hotel."
The other reviewer (go somewhere else) was a bit harsh with their ratings - but correct when saying this is not as good as a W hotel. But I think it is cheaper than the W (at least cheaper than a W would be in the same location).
This is a business/congress hotel but not bad value at all. As the first reviewer points out there are several pros. Nice rooms and free minibar. Also a 24 hour restaurant bar. If you get a good internet deal on this and you want a decent, smart hotel and you dont mind a short subway ride to the center, this would do fine.
I have just returned from a 4-night stay in the AC Barcelona. The hotel was packed due to a large business event in the CCIB Forum (which I was also attending).
Go somewhere else
This is a bleak hotel in a bleak setting, across from large shopping mall in the middle of no mans land.
The "better" restaurant has a view of shopping mall roof, and has all the charm of a parking garage. Including grease stains on the concrete floor.
The staff is young and could care less, the hotel is a very cheap copy of W hotel. You can do much better than this place.
