Hotel Principe di Savoia, a Dorchester Collection hotel, is one of Milan’s historic landmarks — it first opened its doors in 1927, and the neoclassical exterior is certainly eye-catching. Today, it remains a fixture on Milan’s scene, attracting a fashionable jet-set crowd, and is just steps from the metro area. The Presidential Suite is exceptional and nothing short of opulent: It has a private elevator, three bedrooms with working fireplaces, three bathrooms, a 12-person dining room and an expansive balcony with views of Piazza della Repubblica.
The decor is a kitschy, quirky blend of antique furniture, vibrant colors and clashing prints in bright and bold colors. But the real star of the show is the private Pompeii-style spa complete with a Jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath, and the spacious swimming pool with mosaic detailing, surrounded by grand frescoed walls.
