It's up to you, but considering that any of those hotels have a swimming pool, you don't "need" to be at the beach. I'd assume NYC is hotter and likely more humid than Barcelona.
Not saying it'll be cold but not worse then you're used to. The Majestic is in a great location for restaurants, public transport etc. I would stay there if I were you. The beaches are close by on public transport. Also if you want a beach quieter then the city beaches you can take a train to Casteldefells from Passeig de Gracia. The station is only 5 minutes walk from the Majestic. Barcelona is very humid in the city so i having a rooftop to come back to afternoon an afternoon of sightseeing is a big plus IMO.
Hope this helps. I don't think any hotel is central Barcelona has a pool big enough for an adult to do much swimming in. They are generally small, more dipping pools to cool off, as michael said. Barcelona beach is just a short bus ride from the Old Town, or vice versa, so I would be guided by the hotel itself as much as anything.
Btw there are lots of restaurants near Hotel Arts it that's what you means you wouldn't need a cab, or a bus even. Are you planning to go to Barcelona to go swimming at a beach or to see the city? If only to go to the beach, why not go to the Hamptons and forget Spain?
I did find the Arts somewhat isolated from the main sights and the vibe of the city, and the W is roughly as isolated. Also, the Arts can get crowded in the summer and feel a bit like a nice convention hotel, although the rooms were very, very nice and the breakfast was great in The W has a funky hipster vibe, typical of the chain which may or may not appeal.
Unless I were planning to spend most of my time at the beach, I would opt for the city, knowing that the beach is easily reached. That said, I am not a particular fan of the Majestic. While I haven't stayed there, friends did, and their room was cramped and not particularly nice. The breakfast has a great reputation though we did not try. The Mandarin Oriental also has a nice roof pool and although the hotel is not particularly interesting and is also a bit stuffy, it is in a convenient location on Passeig de Gracia.
The Serras is a wonderful boutique hotel, and has a very small rooftop pool. It would be my choice. Also take a look at the Ohla at Comtal and Laietana - it has a pleasant and slightly larger rooftop pool and is in a great location at the edge of the Bari Gotic near the Palau de la Musica. The pool at is also nice but I am not a huge fan of the Ramblas location. I haven't seen the rooms. I have stayed at the Hotel Majestic twice. Their breakfast buffet is one of the best in Spain.

Excellent location. There is everything you need in the apartment. Helpful owners. Guy that is organizing everything regarding apartments was very helpful. He was in contact all the time during stay and month before stay. He will help you with everything and give you advice.
Location is amazing, te best thing. Every attraction is so close, 10,15, 20, 30 min walking. Host was in organized and a mess for check in. Causing us un necessary frustration and time. Great location comfortable bed. Location is very good. All the amenities required for a self catering accommodation. The apartment furniture are very cheap and old. There's bad smell in the apartment and the duvet is dirty. Also bad smell in the bathroom, we asked the staff to clean it but it was still smelling bad.
The water in the sink flows slowly. The location is perfect, just in the border between the Eixample and Gracia. Hostel near by, party day and night! Good cafeshops nearby. Silverfish crawling around on the floor and also 2 in the bed. Big holes behind the paintings, Also we got not the room we booked. The owners excuse is "I prefer this one", and there was nothing we could do.
Cigarette fimps on the balcony. Totally worthless and we will never be back. Couldn't have spent my money in a worse way. Disgusting room and a host with attitude.. Big NoNo. Perfect location, friendly host, no problems with communication. Nice location. Pretty noisey of a night. Perfect location. There was a small misunderstanding about my arrival, but nothing serious.
Everything was solved fast. Good place to stay in Barcelona. A bed side lamp would be a good addition. A few more cooking pots, plates, glasses.
Location, outside space, security, value for money. Little bit cold. They gave me heater when I asked them but still it was little bit cold and heater is so nosie And there are more apartments. You can get one from pictures. On pictures looks much bigger and more nice everything does Guy that greet me was great and very nice.
