HOTEL PRINCIPE DI SAVOIA
Principe di Savoia is said to represent the true spirit of Milan. Its dominating position on the Piazza della Repubblica has been attracting cosmopolitan travelers since the 1920s.
It is walking distance from the city’s cultural sights, including the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery, one of the most prestigious shopping arcades in Italy and Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, the most reproduced painting in the world. Expect five-star service and attention to detail throughout as the Principe di Savoia is run by the prestigious Dorchester Group. The 269 rooms and 132 suites have all been carefully and individually designed. The Club 10 Fitness and Beauty Center is one of the finest of its kind in Milan and the hotel’s Acanto Restaurant offers exceptional Italian cuisine from the talented head chef Fabrizia Cadei.
TOP SUITE PRESIDENTIAL SUITE
Why we love it: Queen Elizabeth II has stayed here, as have George Clooney, Lenny Kravitz, Woody Allen and many other celebrities and royals. If these names alone are not associated with enough magnificence and grandeur, the Presidential Suite’s luxury interior is sure to satisfy even the most expectant travelers. Grand and majestic, this suite offers three en suite bedrooms, a formal dining room that seats ten and a Pompeian-styled swimming pool. Working fireplaces add to the ambiance and warmth throughout winter, while a private terrace on the hotel’s tenth floor offers a prime view over the rooftops of Milan. Every last detail has been thought through from the Venetian XIX century mirrors to the Murano glass chandeliers and late 19th century prints lining the walls. Its interior aside, you can expect few places to match the suite’s meticulous services: between a 24 hour butler and chauffeur your every whim will be catered for.
