Our favourite rooms
Every room has a balcony, which can only be a good thing – especially if it’s one facing out onto the city’s historic centre. For epic views, book the Duomo Suite, named after a certain landmark – though predictably, the Presidential Suite is the most spectacular, with a vast terrace from which to take in the Milanese-skyline panorama.
There’s a heated, family-friendly pool in the spa with its own current-simulating system.
The aptly named Grand Spa has some impressive credentials: namely, a hammam, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, Pilates equipment, personal trainers and hairdressers on standby and Valmont treatments on offer.
This is a country with serious style and Milan is its fashion capital – wear black to blend in with the fashionistas, and pack your dose of designer labels (Italian ones, of course).
All of the hotel entrances have ramps, but only Classic Rooms are accessible for wheelchair users. Pets are allowed; dog beds, biscuits, bowls and a toy are all provided free of charge.
