According to Forbes Travel Guide, “The luxurious aesthetic of Giorgio Armani is brought to life at Armani Hotel Milano, where you can wholly immerse yourself in the designer’s vision. At first glance, the A-shaped building’s 1930s façade appears somewhat austere, but step inside and the glossy elegance that has come to define the brand creates instant attraction. Ascend to the upper levels, where the bar and restaurant are located, and take in the stunning views of the Duomo and the city skyline in the company of a sophisticated crowd. From the namesake Italian restaurant to the beautiful spa, the 95-room hotel is sleek and luxurious. If you find yourself inspired, pop into the Armani store in the same building. Everything here is incredibly refined — a true reflection of the fashion icon’s impeccable taste.”

Travel + Leisure adds, “Elegance, comfort, and sophistication are hallmarks of Armani style, and all are reflected in the Italian designer’s first hotel. Giorgio himself designed each element, and the result is a comforting, sensual atmosphere. Both the restaurant and the lounge have floor-to-ceiling windows that offer fantastic views of the rooftops and terraces of Milan. Downstairs, there’s the Armani superstore, which includes books, flowers, chocolates, a cafe, a Sony electronics store, and the Milanese outpost of famed Japanese restaurant Nobu.”

2. Bulgari Hotel Milano

The inspectors of Forbes Travel Guide report, “When historic Italian jeweler Bulgari expanded into hospitality in 2004, it chose Milan as of the city to behold its vision for a five-story boutique hotel, where under a clean, black-and-white marble facade with black granite eaves and dyed oak frames, privacy is golden, and opulence is at every turn. Crowned by a private 43,000-square-foot terraced garden — a rare commodity in downtown — Bulgari Hotel Milan is tucked away on a private cul-de-sac steps from Via Montenapoleone’s luxury shopping quarters. It is far from sleepy, though — fashionable patrons continue to populate the buzzy bar and restaurant.”

Conde Nast Traveler writes, “In summer, the jet-set gather in Bulgari’s gorgeous gardens shaded by horse chestnuts and plane trees to sip cocktails at one of Milan’s best aperitivi – there is, after all, no better place to see or be seen. Inside, all is sleek black Zimbabwean marble, bronze and Burmese teak wood. In the rooms, light floods in through soaring windows while handsome bathrooms have granite bathtubs and flashes of travertine stone as well as, of course, divine Bulgari toiletries.”

Forbes Travel Guide says, “For nearly a century, the neoclassical Hotel Principe di Savoia, Dorchester Collection has been the benchmark hotel for all of Milan.

It continues, “If the Principe’s unabashed style makes it the landmark destination for fashion royalty, its rooftop spa, hush-hush vibe and enviable address (out of the center traffic and just a 10-minute drive, vintage tram ride or metro trip to the fashion capital’s epicenter, via Monte Napoleone) create the perfect getaway for a very private affair.”

Opened in 2013 as the city’s first large-scale boutique hotel, Palazzo Parigi is a fabulous stage for design created by architect and owner Paola Giambelli, who combined Paris chic with Milan flair, aiming to herald the renaissance of a city that was originally known as Rome’s austere sister but is now the Italian darling of fashion, finance, and gastronomy. Located on Corso di Porta Nuova, an area rich in contemporary art galleries, boutiques and restaurants, the luxury hotel is within an easy 10- to 15-minute walk in any direction of the city’s must-visit destinations: the fashion Quadrangle, Via Monte Napoleone and architectural time-piece Villa Cecchi Campiglio, and the list goes on.”
