Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Milano
Best location for fashion district!
The location of the hotel is ideal if you are traveling with a mind of shopping. We can not even walk beyond the 50 meter perimeter of the hotel after whole afternoon of shopping!
The roof level junior suite was just great. It's very spacious and had very large dressing and bathing areas. The room had a view to the courtyard but the balcony wall is rather high so you can only stand there to see the garden.
Food is excellent in the lobby restaurant whether you have a breakfast or a small luncheon after walking in the fashion district. Actually it's better than most of the highly recommended restaurants we dined outside. I would also certainly recommend the room service because they gave you everything you can get in the restaurant.
Concierge is very helpful in booking restaurants or providing information for your stay. However one of the drawbacks is check-in time is a bit too long. The hotel lobby seemed a bit too busy is another. Nevertheless I would suggest those who comes to Milan for fashion or food should not look anywhere else!
I am impressed again by Four Seasons. Though travelling alot and staying in many fine places such as Park Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental, Ritz Carlton etc, For me only Four Seasons Hotels are always reflecting the spririt and atmosphere of the city or place of their location perfectly (well: Amanresorts does aswell). This place is very, very expensive but worth the amount. However, some extras (pressing a suit about 40 Euro, Water from Minibar 10 Euro) seem to be ridicously overpriced. Would definately return.
Very spacious rooms, service needs some improvements. Best location if you wanna go shopping and for nice aperitif in armani nobu! Very busy and good fun during the fashion week.
Just returned from a weekend at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan. The location is excellent for those that love to shop.
I had a deluxe room, which was more like a junior suite. The marble bathroom with the under floor heating, the walk in dressing room, and the actual bedroom was excellent. In most cities, bedrooms are quite small and this was the opposite. 10/10.
The staff were very friendly and efficent and the food and beverages in the lobby bar was good and reasonally priced. 34 euro for a bottle of s. blanc. Good for a 5 star city hotel.
The concierge booked and recommended 2 restaurants that served proper italian food without breaking the bank.
I can highly recommend this hotel and Milan for a weekend break.
Not The Best Game in Town any more...
Four Seasons Milan, for just about a decade, was the undisputed leader in top class hotels for this fashionable city...
Based upon my last visits, the hotel seems to be suffering of a complex "we are the best", ignoring the fact that other 5-star hotels have opened in town.
The hotel has been switching more and more towards becoming friendly to Middle Eastern customers and it is loosing its cosmopolitan taste that made it so unique before.
Some touch-ups to the public areas have been made, but to date the hotel has no Spa servicese and the guest rooms are a little tired, not to mention a good half of the staff... the management needs fresh ideas, or the hotel need new management.... until then, we'll be stying closer to the Galleria.
Needs a re-vamp
I should start by saying that i LOVE LOVE LOVE four seasons properties around the world and have stayed at four seasons milan about 4x a year for work for the past 3 years.
Four Seasons milan, however, is slipping. The rooms, while large, definately need a re-do and they ALL smell a little rotten (probably from all of the previous smokers). For once i took a good look at my bill - $499 for 4 suits to be dry cleaned. HORRIBLE! the service is A+ but you certainly pay for it -- its easy to rack up bills at this hotel - especially like $300 Euro for a doctor to come see me in my room, $12 Euro for a small diet coke. A Martini? 22 Euro. With the beautiful BVLGARI hotel down the street - a new, clean, modern, gorgeous, and chic hotel with a STUNNING spa (no spa @ the four seasons) ill be staying there from now on.
Unique Four Seasons Experience
Indeed a very expensive hotel, but you are certainly guarantee to get what you paid for. This hotel is in the best location in Milan within walking distance of main attractions and designer shopping areas. In addition, its facilities are superb and service at its best. We got upgraded to a suite upon arrival that was spacious and beautiful. I suggest you say in this hotel enjoy the environment, but eat out as much as possible to get the real feel for italian flavor. I feel the food at the hotel besides expensive is also catered to tourists rather than give you the real italian feeling. Ask the concierge for suggestions on restaurants. They are very helpful and informative. Once again, this is the place to stay in Milan, as with all the four Seasons we have ever been (EXCEPT THE LONDON ONE!) Enjoy!
EXPENSIVE BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY
Excellent location in the heart of the fashionable area of the City. Excellent modern facilities. Rooms food and service could not be faulted.
This is a great hotel, perfectly located for on-foot shopping and sightseeing with beautiful rooms, flawless service and excellent food. Usually we go for a "view" room looking out, but in this case I recommend a room facing the inner courtyard, which is lovely and quiet. It gives you the feel of being in a country house while in the middle of Milan. The room decor (we had a junior suite), with multiple types and colors of wood, was clean and elegant with top-notch bedding. The marble bathroom had two sinks, a tub and a huge walk-in shower - really great for recovering from a long flight. Lunch in their "La Veranda" restaurant (covered as an American Express FH&R amenity) was one of the best meals we had on our entire trip. They'll have competition from the new Park Hyatt, but this will be very hard to beat.
This place was the best hotel that we ever stayed in. We were upgraded to a fantastic room, which had the hugest walk in closet imaginable. The view from the marble (huge) bathroom was over the rooftops and the shower was amazing, big enough for two like the bath was! The service was excellent and the staff could not do enough for us. It was very near to the Duomo and was situated in the main designer shopping district, so I took back loads of shoes and clothes! Milan was fantastic, the only downside being that La Scala is closed until Dec 2004 so I was not able to realise my dream of seeing an opera there until the end of the year. My fiance, who travels very much on business, says that this hotel is the best that he has ever stayed in, and this really is saying something, from a man who travels business class everywhere and stays in some of the top hotels around the world- but what more can you expect from one of the Four Seasons hotel chains- they are simply the best in the world- I am hooked!

We stopped back at the café in the Milano Centrale train station to grab dinner to eat on the train. I got a to-go box of macaroni pomodoro (spiral pasta with tomato sauce). I was extra pleased to eat this really good Italian pasta on an Italian train on my way to one of the most famous Italian cities. After I finished my dinner I clocked right out on the train and by the time I woke up again we were already in Venice!
