Milan Marriott Hotel
Travel Blogs from Milan
Milan for some is a shoppers paradise. Brand name stores line the streets attracting throngs of Asian tourists. Gucci, Prada, Ermenegildo Zegna are all here. I went looking for "Mensland" hoping to score my favorite Bonds underpants but was disappointed to find they are not represented in the Via Montenapoleone.
The locals are smartly …
We had seen this before, or at least most of it. The breakfast started the same, the trains, and so on. Even our tour seemed eerily similar to what we had done the day prior…
Starting in the early afternoon, we met for our tour of Leonardo Da Vinci's "Last Supper" in the heart of Milan at the Duomo Square. With the group all …
A welcome change has come to us - heat. Now able to stroll the streets in standard San Diego attire, we were happier already. Taking a cab into town from Milano Centrale, our driver pointed out numerous monuments and points of interest that were easily walkable from our hotel. Having nothing set on our agenda for the day, we decided to enjoy the …
When I arrived in Milan, I had no idea what to expect. I kept seeing fashion runways in my head. Turns out, there's more to the city than fashion.
I only stayed in Milan one night, with plans to take the train to Venice first thing the next day. I was really excited to see Venice!
My hotel told me to take the metro to the …
Ok, so I have this thing for an hour...well, 53 mins now, so Im gonna try to fill you in on the trip so far. The first few days were spent in the Lake Como district where we were housed in a family run hotel. Simple accomodations, amazing food, and right on the lake. We took several walks, including one up to a real castle! Nate would love it here …

Historical Traveler Reviews Milan Marriott Hotel
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.
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.
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.
