      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.

      ... are the cemeteries so I take her across the road to where the newer mausoleums are. Beyond that was the cemetery. I convinced her to defer the call to coffee to have a look. As she enters the gates, she looks around and wants to know where the Von Trapp family are hiding. It reminded her of a scene from The Sound of Music. The cemetery has fresh cut and growing flowers on almost every grave and mausoleum. The month of November (Holy Souls) explains this. Either end ...

      What A Night!

      A travel blog entry by travellinghutch on Nov 05, 2014

      Now where are all my party people?! In the city of Milan, Italy, the night does not begin
      until about 1 am. Back in Canada if someone is awake later than
      midnight, it is likely they are either in bed watching a movie with a
      bag of chips or bowl of ice cream (all you ladies, you know what i am
      talking about. We have alllll been there so please save the trouble
      of denying it!), or selling drugs in dark ...

      The Italian leg of my journey was a bit all over the place as I was in Milan 3 times, with Venice and Rome in-between. So for the purposes of this blog i've lumped all of Milan images and details together and will post separate entries for Venice and Rome.

      So... Milan is a melting pot of culture, grunge, chaos, high fashion, trends and energy. It was an amazing contrast after Stockholm and ...

      ... worked quite well, although I would guess some people had slight hearing loss for a few days afterwards. She tried to get me to sing another one and we wound up doing so although I can't remember what song it was. The third song was crunching me for time to catch my train which was now 30 minutes from departure, and, unlike Indian trains, they are always very on time. BUT she was not to be denied. So I sang one more, well I tried, but the lyrics on the screen did not match with the ...
