Not in the city centre but in a definitely more locals' quartier with lots of cafes and modern restos. It will be very close the city link that is getting ready in view of the 2015 expo.

Historical Traveler Reviews Milan Marriott Hotel
Not worth the Euros...
Stayed at the Milan Marriott just last month. What a place. We had to be moved 3 times before they got us a room that was NONSMOKING, then CLEAN. (the second room they gave us still had the previous guests dirty dishes and old socks in the room). The fridge didn't work AT ALL, the door needed to be re-hung as it didn't close properly and the bed and pillows were rock hard. The sheets were cheap and scratchy as were all of the blankets. Just felt way too overpriced for what it was. The breakfast buffet was overpriced and only average quality. Unless you are on an expense account, or it is included in your room, I'd eat elsewhere. There are many place in the area on Via Marghera. There is a supermarket across the street and to the right in which we bought bottled water and lots of local grinds. Sign up for the Essalunga Blue Card, to get 'safeway club card' type savings. Saw the Duomo, rode the subway (metro red line) everywhere.
Partner was nearly pickpocketed on the metro by a pregnant woman. Beware that nothing screams 'AMERICAN TOURIST' more than a fanny pack. She tried to open up his fanny pack, but felt the zipper move, so he turned away. She had the "newspaper over the arm--slide the other hand through the paper" trick down. She quickly jumped off the train at the next stop, no doubt to pick at some other tourist.
Be aware that no one speaks English there. You'd be better off to learn German, as they do tend to speak and understand that better than English! Most Everyone smokes and no one eats supper before 8 pm, so keep that in mind. The Malpensa Express train is worth the 8 Euro. However, because of a 7 am departure, I had to leave the hotel at 4:30 am and pay 90 Euros for a quick 25 minute ride, Non Negotiable. If I went back to Italy, I would spend a day in Milan, see the sights, stay near the Duomo (Corso Buenos Aires had some great funky inns). All in all, I'd rather be in Florence...
This is a 4 star hotel
We spent three nights in Milano, I was worried about the previous comments of this hotel.
I agree that this Marriott hotel does not have the perfect location, but the metro stop is within walking distance, we took the metro and went everywhere in Milan. There are stores and so many restaurants near this hotel.
I do not agree with some of the negative reports on this hotel, it's equal to a four star hotel here in the USA.. and that was good enough for us.
Not as bad as others described
I was very skeptical about this hotel after reading others posting. Fortunately my experience was abit more pleasant. The room was clean, no odor, traditional decor, normal hotel room. Though I agree that it doesn't feel 5 stars. Location is 4 long blocks from Metro stop, unless you are up to walking, should consider taxi. The area is okay, like the rest of residential area in Milan.
Hated the Milan Marriott
Astonished a Marriott would be so awful. Rooms had steel doors and the decor was terrible. The entire hotel smelled of cigarette smoke and was just filthy. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Not a five-star (or even a 3-star) hotel!
Do not stay here! The rooms are old, dirty and uncomfortable! The distance to the center of Milan is manageable, but the hotel is definitely not worth it!! We stayed here one night and then moved out.
Don't get fooled by it's 5-star rating. It is not a quality place.
Not good - but the only Marriott there.
I stayed at the Milan Marriott in September 2003 with my husband. The location is horrible, there is no where to walk in the area and graffitti galore. The staff was somewhat pleasant when nothing was wrong, but when I called for a possible room change because the bed and pillows were so hard they hurt, I was told "there is no air conditoning, just open the window". I chuckled and repeated the question regarding the discomfort of the BED, and was told I'd be given a call back.....rrrriiight. The restaurant is ok, but any other restaurants or historic areas like the Duomo are an expensive taxi ride away. And yes, take a taxi, the roads are a circus! We stay at Marriotts all over the world, and this is one of the worst (the last one this bad is now under new ownership, no longer a Marriott, in the Bahamas).
Off the Beaten Path.......
Stayed at the Milan, Marriott Sept 8th through Sept 10th 2003. The suites on the top floor are okay but the other floors are in desperate need of a makeover. The hotel is not within walking distance of any of the key tourist attractions. Would advise this hotel only if you are a business traveler not set on seeting the sites.
Milano Marriott: love the place
Stayed at Milan Marriott couple of times, very nice, nice area, and lots of restaurants around the hotel. Rooms are very quite, unlike lot of other italian hotels. Highly recommended.
This hotel is located within several blocks of the Wagner metro stop; too far to walk to the Duomo in hot weather. The rooms are small but well-appointed. The staff is exceptionally helpful. The neighborhood is mostly residential, which gives you dining options to eat with locals--much cheaper than tourist restaurants.

I have spent recently an incredible four days in a Milan. Was not the first time but certainly this time was an eye opener! Fully loaded with excellent tips of my Milanese friends and fully in spirit to discover my own Milan, I run into a couple of places that fascinated me but also made me feel like home! This is a fast forward way to discover or …
... the Carabinieri (ie: that police station), which we took to be a good sign. We took several photos of the area, and our walk to the Metro train station - just in case we got lost and needed to work out how to to get back. WE still had no map at this stage and that made decision making a bit hard. I mean, I knew that there was a City centre square and a Duomo and the Last Supper, and its a fashion capital - but really I just wanted to go here so I could wear my ...
... pinks, rustic reds and pale creams. There are large road tunnels on both sides of the lake, huge gaping holes built into the mountains to allow drivers to wind their way around this big expanse of water.
WE saw lots of these tiny villages on our way around, we saw large villa's, even a glimpse of where George Clooney is supposed to live. I was surprised that there wasn't more traffic on the water. No speed boats, no kayaks, no water skiers. There was really only a few ...
... breath, gazed across at the mountains and the towns beneath them. It was a spectacular day and we have been promised many more like it because often DDS go to Varese or Como for some open water swimming and riding in the mountains. I can't wait!!! On Monday we will commence our individualised training programs to prepare us for the first two big races of our Italian seasons: The Bardolino Triathlon (20th June) and the Segrate round of the Italian Grand Prix triathlon series (28th ...
... Nick Hornby's novel 'How to be Good' (never read him before) and start to read. Once I'm started it's hard for me not to finish a book and as I'm only here for 2 nights I spend virtually the whole of the next day lying in bed reading, and finish the book by late afternoon. What would Gabriella think if she knew I had lazed away my whole day (while she's slaving away at work) in her apartment (I tell her and she's surprised I read so quickly). I really enjoy the ...
