Old World elegance enjoys a prime location just steps away from major shopping and La Scala opera house.
Dating back to 1863, Grand Hotel et de Milan served as the long-time residence of acclaimed composer Giuseppe Verdi, who wrote “Othello” while living here. In the innovation department, it was the first hotel in Milan to offer in-room telephones, and these days it maintains its reputation with amenities that range from flat-screen TVs to iPod docks. The Verdi Suite is a must for music lovers, featuring as it does the composer's writing desk. Gorgeous vestiges of the 19th century have been thoughtfully maintained throughout, and the sophistication found in the steel-and-glass lobby atrium and antique wood-lined elevators make the property feel more like a private residence than a hotel.
Three elegantly appointed meeting halls are available for small banquets and intimate events. They are adorned with tapestries and a collection of paintings by Maria Luigia d'Austria; at the same time they provide the technology necessary to meet your every conference need. A glass-enclosed fitness center is particularly pleasant with its view onto a peaceful courtyard. Dining options include the warm, gallery-like setting of the exclusive restaurant Don Carlos, where the chef has crafted an intriguing tasting menu, complemented by a serious selection of fine wines. The light and airy restaurant Caruso is perfect for breakfast meetings and working lunches, while the hotel bar is an elegant space in which to linger over an afternoon cappuccino or evening cocktails.
