Stylish and sophisticated the Armani Hotel Milano has opened on 10th November this year in Italy’s fashion capital, Milan. It is the second hotel Giorgio Armani opens, after the success of the Armani Hotel Dubai in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa tower. Opposite the city’s prestigious Via Montenapoleone shopping street and near the La Scala theater and the cathedral Il Duomo, the superluxe Armani Hotel opens under the Armani Hotels & Resorts banner and it’s the result of a collaboration between Armani Hotels & Resorts and Emaar Properties PJSC. Located in the same building as the Armani Privé boutique and Armani/Nobu restaurant, creating a flagship space for the $2.1 billion brand, it covers 162,000 square feet.
Offering a new experience of hospitality within its fashion district, every aspect of the hotel reflects Giorgio Armani’s aesthetic phylosophy. If we were to describe in a few words this hotel, we definitely say luxury, privacy, comfort and beauty because the entire design concept accentuates this feeling. The hotel feature 95 guest rooms and suites , all furnished with Armani Casa linens, fabrics and custom furniture, and ranging from Deluxe and Première rooms to Classic, Executive, Ambassador, Signature and Presidential suites. It has the largest guestrooms in the city, a gourmet restaurant, a luxurious Armani SPA on the eighth floor that covers almost 13,000 square feet, a fully equipped business center with meeting rooms and magnificent views over Milan.
Giorgio Armani wanted his interiors to be “ practical, logical, and rational without losing glamour and richness of quality.” The space is integrated, the elements are the same both in the rooms and outside them. Onyx, silk georgette and green river stone are among the main materials. Curved walls help convey a sense of harmony between areas, which was a priority for Armani. The unsurprisingly Armani neutral tones – iconic “greige,” creamy brown, green and mother-of-pearl dominate the interiors and transmit a feeling of relaxation and calm. Minibars, high-tech amenities and cupboards are hidden, reflecting his sense of order and space. Nothing is left to chance.
