Milan, Central District
Hotel Principe di Savoia
Hollywood may have given the world "the celebrity," but Italy gave celebrities glamour. From Federico Fellini to Sophia Loren, this country invented the sophisticated set. As for where said set stays while in Italy, this lavish 1927 hotel is a top choice. David Beckham set up camp here while playing for AC Milan, and Madonna and her entourage have checked in. The guest list is long and storied — Josephine Baker and Charlie Chaplin in days of yore; George Clooney and Katie Holmes today. This hotel has even enjoyed its own silver screen time in Sofia Coppola's movie "Somewhere." Book a room (well in advance!) during Fashion Week and you're sure to spot a known name. Mostly likely they'll be staying in the 5,000-square-foot Presidential Suite, featuring a private Pompeian-style spa with its own swimming pool.
