Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Palace, Milan
Felt like a queen staying here!
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
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
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
Highest price and Worst Service. We were assigned a down-grade-room we booked. We will never return this hotel!!
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.
Beautiful hotel, very pleased. Take up their recomendation and dine at Don Lisander, fabulous. Heavenly beds are for real.
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!
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.
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.
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.

This is a simple hotel, with simple rooms, with a simple breakfast, that will do job.

We survived the long plane ride and arrived in Milano around 9 am. Summer arrived early for us as the temps were in the mid-80's with humidity. After a nap in the hotel to clear the cobwebs, we plopped Neyoli in the ever so important stroller and hit the streets of busy Milano, the fashion and business capital of Italia. Our neighborhood near the train station was actually charming with local cafes and bakeries right ...
