Our favourite rooms
Suite ME has witnessed many a raucous A-list party, but this sprawling apartment-style stay – spread over a whole floor – can also feel rather serene. A PlayStation and a pool table keep guests entertained, a bespoke in-room bar keeps them merry, and a terrace with space to lounge gives panoramic views of the cityscape. If your ‘make it rain’ is a light drizzle, the Vibe rooms’ curvaceous bath tubs, tech gizmos and tailored interiors are just as chic, for a more prêt-à-porter price.
There’s no spa, but the hotel can send a therapist to your room to work out your knots, perk up your visage or scrub and polish your skin. For those maintaining a model figure, the 24-hour gym is outfitted with work-out tech: power plates, treadmills, cross trainers, bikes and weights.
Bring a coterie of couture legends in your Vuitton Steamer, or an ensemble outré enough to be hailed as the next runway trend.
All public areas are wheelchair accessible, and the hotel has a lift and nine adapted Aura Rooms (one on each floor) for guests with mobility issues.
Pets under 5kg stay free, but STK restaurant is off limits. The ME+ pet package (€50, or free for guests staying in suites) includes a dog house, blanket, bowls, ball and pet bathrobe. There’s a dedicated doggie-room-service menu too. See more pet-friendly hotels in Milan.
Milan caters to more grown-ups, but kids are welcome at the hotel. Extra beds and baby cots can be added to suites, babysitting or a nanny is available for €30 an hour (two hours’ notice is needed). Radio Bar has highchairs and the kitchen can heat milk.
