Me Hotel, Barcelona
The one-year-old Dominique Perrault-designed hotel surrounds guests with glittering steel walls and sliding panels of vibrantly colored Lucite, complimented by dramatic views of the city from almost every angle and lending an omnipotent feel.
In the spirit of Barcelona's legendary nightlife and the beach vibe lent by the sparkling blue Mediterranean Sea, the hotel keeps the momentum alive with a popular bar scene and in-room amenities—such as Wii and iPod docking stations.
In addition to DJs at the Sky Food Bar, the stainless-steel swimming pool stays open for midnight swims or moonlit frolicking under the waterfalls created by giant sprinklers. Revelers can also take in the old movies projected onto the running water, while sipping cocktails in one of the poolside cabanas or they have the option of heading to the Angels and Kings Bar on the sixth floor to mingle with a flashy jet-set crowd and hip locals.
After a long night out (and days taking in the sights) the rooms offer comforts like a pillow menu of eight pillow types.
With locations in Cancun, Cabo and Madrid, the Barcelona Me Hotel location stands out for its supreme level of service and attention to detail. Prices range from €250-400 per night depending on the room and season. Book through Mr & Mrs Smith.
