Giorgio Armani attended yesterday the ribbon cutting ceremony at the official opening of its brand new luxury hotel, in the heart of Milan, on Via Manzoni. The Armani Hotel, created within a palazzo, is shaped by the architectural ground plan as an immense "A". This can be seen in the original Griffini drawings, and is something that is only visible from above
The new Armani Hotel in Milan features 90 oversized luxury rooms and suites, among the largest rooms in central Milan (starting at 45 sqm). The hotel features a state of the art luxury SPA and a fine dining restaurant.
The eighth floor, covering an area of 1,200 square metres, is entirely devoted to beauty and relaxation, bringing together a range of treatments and therapies that promote physical and mental harmony and wellbeing. The Armani/SPA consists of six dedicated treatment rooms, a Couples Suite – for the inseparable – a fitness gym and a pool designed for relaxation with a temperature control system for maximum comfort. The sunscreen walls that filter out the bright light and the roof with its magnificent view across the skyline establish a slightly surreal mood. The gym also offers a wide choice of equipment for cardiovascular and muscular training, and is open 24 hours a day.
The Armani/Ristorante is located on the seventh floor, where it offers superb traditional Italian gastronomy, an exclusive cellared beverage list, a private dining room and a Chef’s Table within the kitchen itself. On the opposite side, the Armani/Lounge with the Armani/Bamboo lounge looks out over the skyline: the double height ceiling, the wall with its huge window softened by louvered blinds and sections in backlit onyx and a good choice of music ensure a relaxed ambience in which to enjoy an informal meal, afternoon tea, or an aperitivo before dinner. An internal connecting bridgeway offers a dedicated area for smokers.
Nightly rates at the Armani Hotel Milan start at 500 euros up to 1.600 euros for the entry category suite. Rates for speciality suites are available on request. Similarly to Armani Dubai, the new Milan property features the innovative Lifestyle Manager concept, whereas all guests will benefit from a dedicated Lifestyle Manager to cater to all their needs during their stay.
The Milan hotel is the second after the opening of Armani Hotel Dubai two years ago, the Armani Hotels company, the developer of the hotels, is a joint venture between Giorgio Armani SpA and Dubai based real estate conglomerate Emaar.
