La Barceloneta

This 44-story glass and exposed steel tower, built in 1994, is a protected landmark and an iconic part of the Barcelona skyline. 300 feet from the beach, it feels more like a resort than a city hotel, with terraced gardens and a pool located next to Frank Gehry’s iconic fish sculpture overlooking the Mediterranean. Guest rooms start at 484 square feet and are among the largest in Barcelona; for the best views book one of 28 duplex apartments, located on the top ten floors of the hotel. The furnishings and interiors were designed by Catalan designer Jaime Tresserra and boast parquet floors, wrap-around windows, and butler service. It’s not often a hotel spa occupies the property's most prime real estate, but here it’s located on floors 42 and 43 and features the only sauna in Barcelona with natural light and views of the sea. (Rooms, from $275)
