    Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Palace, Milan

    Felt like a queen staying here!

    from

    We stayed two nights using Starwood Reward points and were upgraded to a luxurious suite. The room was huge with a sitting area, large marble bathroom, shower room and a marble turkish bath. The room was sparkling clean and the staff helpul. The only problem was the location. There didn't seem to be many resturant choices in the immediate area. Please skip the breakfast buffet at 33 euros it was very ordinary.

    Not Cheap but Beautiful

    from

    We had a gorgeous room in this hotel, which was hugely expensive, but opulent in an old-world luxurious way. Don't buy anything from the hotel bar where a coke is 8 euros! Nice location on the Piazza Della Repubblica, but several blocks from via montenapoleoni and other shopping/eating districts.

    Musty and shabby

    from

    I entered this hotel and exited within 2 minutes, the interior looks shabby and in need of renovation. How it could be classified as one of the leading hotels in Milan is laughable!!!

    Worst hotel in the world

    from

    Highest price and Worst Service. We were assigned a down-grade-room we booked. We will never return this hotel!!

    Gorgeous

    from

    We stayed at the Westin Palace for free using Starwood Points and it was GORGEOUS! The marble bathroom was amazing and our room looked just like the photographs on the hotel's website. The only drawback was the location was a bit far from most of the tourist sites.

    Heavenly

    from

    Beautiful hotel, very pleased. Take up their recomendation and dine at Don Lisander, fabulous. Heavenly beds are for real.

    Disappointed

    from

    I stayed at the Westin Palace for two nights in Dec 2003. The room I was given was small and need of redecorating. Coat hangers in the wardrobe were various cheap plastics ones, not the normal wooden high quality ones you expect in a 5 star hotel. Staff in the bar were pleasant. Overall impression is that it could be a great hotel if the present owners spend a few million euro on redecorating it and bringing it up to 21st century standards. Tired would be a good one word description of the hotel!

    Thumbs down!!

    from

    We stayed at the Westin Palace Milan for almost a week over Christmas 2003. The rooms while impressive at first glance, were not so spectacular after a couple of nights stay.My wife, our two kids (8 and 5) and I stayed at the Westin Palace Milan. We needed two adjoining suites as they do allow more that 3 people in a room.When we arrived the hotels entrance was under renovation and there was nobody to help with the luggage. This was the start to our stay at this "spectacular" hotel.Our request for non-smoking rooms went unnoticed and was told that they were sold out of non-smoking rooms. When we checked in we told them that there were 4 people in the party but each room only had a king-size bed in it. Not a good idea unless your kids don t mind sleeping in the same bed.While the rooms looked great at first, but after a couple of days, we could see how much in need of a renovation they actually were in. The room we stayed in was on the 12 floor of the hotel and faced the street, which was very noisy especially at night.The hotel has no data port or any type of internet connection in the rooms, so I fail to see how it tries to market itself as a business hotel.You will need a cab to get anywhere close to any shopping area. The downtown area is approximately 10 minutes away by car.Food at the hotel is outrageous, with a bad breakfast buffet at 40 Euros a person, a hamburger 25 Euros and a single scoop of gelato 12 Euros there are nicer and cheaper places to eat.I cannot say I would recommend staying at the Western Palace Milan at all.

    Great Hotel

    from

    I stay here everytime I go to Milan. Lovely rooms, great staff.

    Restaurant and bars are excellent. Location is excellent for both business and shopping.

    Spectacular

    from

    One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. I felt like a princess in the beautiful ornate room we were given. Staff was beyond helpful in helping us get tickets to events we wanted to attend and then purchased our train tickets for us to Venice. I highly recommend this hotel.

    George wasn't on the train we took from Milan to Venice, but he was spotted by by a couple in our party, near the Town Hall after the civil ceremony. We had a great hotel between the Rialto Bridge and St Marco. On Friday evening we explored the local cicchetti bars (similar to tapas) with our fellow food and wine tour members.

    ... designated for our use only, like studio space. We are actually the very first group of American students to study abroad in Milan and take courses in English.
    Orientation was just so we could meet some of our professors, and get an introduction to our program, and receive information about what to do while in Milan. For lunch, they brought in a variety of breads from a Focacceria, and traditional Christmas desserts.
    After lunch, ...
