I can't wait! I wonder when we can start booking.

Oh wow, according to the wiki, this hotel used to be an Intercontinental way back in 1996. Looks like it was recently renovated so we'll have a practically brand new hotel. Very nice.

From wiki, "The Hotel Sofia Barcelona is a skyscraper hotel near Avinguda Diagonal (Diagonal Avenue) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It has 22 floors and rises 79 meters.[1] The hotel was completed in 1975 as the Hotel Princesa Sofia. It was renamed InterContinental Princesa Sofia in 1996, then the Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia in 2004. It was completely renovated in 2017 and renamed Hotel Sofia Barcelona.[2]"

With luck in 2019 we'll have Barcelona's 7 Small Luxury Hotels to choose from as well...

Woohoo! Super excited for this. I wonder what the suite the tsu books into. I hope it's not the first wish one. That one is more of a junior suite and not a true suite.

I can't wait for the complaints that this hotel is too far away from the main tourist attractions.

Does anyone have experience with the Wish Lounge? If so, how does it compare with the average Hyatt Regency lounge? Thanks!

i just noticed the addition and looking at the details I thought the same thing. Not an optimal location for tourists but at least an addition.

Thanks @coggie that's comforting to know the metro is down the street. I was afraid the hotel would be too far from everything too. I have a stay coming up as well.

Anyone that stayed here have any feedback on the lounges or the Globalist suites upgrades at this property? Planning a summer stay here in late August.

TIA

I got what they called a suite and I would call it a junior suite. Nice room. Didn't know about lounges. Points haven't posted after two weeks or so. I have some pictures of the room which I'll post later.
