Bottom Line

Since the 1920s, the Principe Di Savoia has held an undisputed position as Milan's top luxury hotel. But global chains like the Four Seasons and the Park Hyatt have moved in on this grande dame's territory, offering a similar level of swank in a more central area of the city. Despite the competition, the five-star Principe still attracts its share of aristocracy and corporate bigwigs, for good reason. The classic decor features sumptuous fabrics and sophisticated color schemes, the indoor pool is attractive and large, and the Principe Bar is one of the city's top spots for a business meeting or after-work cocktail.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Principe Di Savoia

Scene

Milan's elegant grand dame

Guests make a grand entrance through a theatrical doorway into a paneled lobby that carefully balances Old World flourishes with contemporary simplicity. The reception area has green and pink marble tile floors, paneled walls, and plenty of vertical mirrors. In the lounge, velvet banquettes and houndstooth club chairs complement a boldly geometric rug in a tasteful cream, yellow and sage color scheme, while fine oil paintings line the walls. The hotel opened in the 1920s and the updated Art Deco style is evident throughout the property. The hotel is part of the luxurious Dorchester Collection, and has such renowned sister properties as the Hotel Plaza Athenee.

Location

Near Milan's main train station

The Principe is located in an elegant, though uninteresting neighborhood about three miles northeast of the Piazza del Duomo. The Stazione Centrale, or main railway station, is roughly within a 10-minute walk. The hotel is 15 minutes from the motorway that circles the city with connections to Venice, Turin and the Autostrada del Sole for Bologna, Florence, Rome and other points south.

Rooms

Stunning and sumptuous

Palatially decorated guest rooms are spacious and understatedly elegant, with haberdashery velvets, silks and satins, voluminous drapery, classically paneled walls, and rich, polished wood furnishings. Lavish marble bathrooms are equally dreamy, with double sink vanities, gleaming fixtures and, in many rooms, separate soaking tubs and glass-enclosed showers. Double-glazed windows effectively diffuse traffic noise. For maximum pampering, a 5,400-square-foot Presidential Suite features three bedrooms and its own indoor pool, hot tub and sauna.

Features

Wonderful breakfast buffet

In addition to two cushy cocktail lounges, the Principe has a restaurant that offers a "vast and excellent" buffet breakfast, according to guests. The gym, spa and indoor pool are located on the roof level and offer panoramic city views. Underground valet parking is pricey, but your car will be returned with clean windows and bottled water. For those without a car, the hotel provides free shuttle service around the city.
