The opening of Park Hyatt Milan this August will give Italy`s business and fashion capital a stylish new address. The 117-room hotel boasts interior architecture and design by Ed Tuttle, renown for his work on the recently opened Park Hyatt Paris-VendÌ«me. Set in a palatial and historic building, the hotel is Hyatt`s first property in Italy.
“The hotel will have a very monolithic feeling,” says Tuttle referring to the late 19th century building that was originally constructed as a hotel but later used for apartments and offices. “Park Hyatt Milan will stay true to the structure`s historic style, but we`re giving it a refined, contemporary attitude.”
Situated in the heart of the city, just few steps away from the Piazza del Duomo, La Scala and the Galleria, Park Hyatt Milan combines fashionable Italian style with Tuttle`s imaginative approach. He uses Milanese Travertine stone throughout the building, in both the public spaces and in the guestrooms, along with walnut paneling, mirrors, and gunmetal shutters framed in steel.
Guestrooms are designed in a classic contemporary style. Twenty-three suites, including a Presidential suite and a Diplomatic Suite, both with two private terraces, will provide a variety of options for guests who require larger spaces and separate work, entertaining, and sleeping areas. The bathrooms and dressing areas continue the mood of subtle luxury found throughout the hotel, with custom fixtures, heated floors, deep-soaking baths and separate rain showers. The design and the use of Travertine stone will give guests the feeling of bathing in their own luxurious spa.
For additional spa experiences, the Club Olympus Health Spa will be available exclusively for hotel guests. Facilities include a gym, steam rooms and two treatment rooms where guests can avail themselves of a variety of beauty and holistic treatments.
Park Hyatt Milan`s central space, the lobby lounge rotunda, is set under a soaring glass dome that allows natural daylight to pour into the space with a view of the building`s magnificent 19th century Milanese courtyard.
“Crucial to all Park Hyatt hotels are their incomparable, personalised service standards”, says Park Hyatt Milan`s general manager, Claudio Ceccherelli, formerly of the renowned Villa d`Este, “The attention to service, design and architecture are intertwined because all are dedicated to our guests` experience of luxury and wellbeing.”
Park Hyatt Milan joins an elite portfolio of Park Hyatt hotels around the world. They are typically small and distinguished properties promising elegant and gracious service on a personal scale. Intimate and residential in style, Park Hyatts are further distinguished by prime locations, exceptional interior design and works of art.
One of the most prized pieces of art in the hotel will be Gerhard Richter`s 1968 rendition of Piazza del Duomo in Milan. The painting has been displayed prominently in the lobby of Park Hyatt Chicago and will move to Milan when the hotel opens.
“The Richter painting is truly an exceptional piece of art which reflects the grace, style, and sophistication of Park Hyatt Milan,” says Bernd Chorengel, president of Hyatt International Corporation.
There are 206 Hyatt Hotels and Resorts around the world, which are managed by two separate groups of companies. Subsidiaries of Hyatt International Corporation operate 61 hotels and 23 resorts in 39 countries, with an additional 15 hotels under development. Hyatt Hotels Corporation, a separate company, and its subsidiaries operate, lease and franchise 122 hotels and resorts in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
