Housed in four 19th century buildings next to La Scala (the famous opera house), the hotel will have 104 rooms, including 31 suites, billed as some of the largest guest accommodations in the city. The centerpiece of the hotel is the leafy open courtyard. The fine dining restaurant and bar bistro will be overseen by chef Antonio Guida.

Another highlight will be the spa, with six treatment rooms including two couples suites and a dedicated Thai massage room. The VIP suite is said to be the biggest in Milan, and there’s also expansive water facilities, an indoor pool, and gym. Meeting facilities include a 100-seat ballroom.
