A Fashionable Milanese Retreat
Milan epitomizes the 3 F’s Italy is known for: food, fashion, and furniture; with the Milan Expo 2015 fully underway it’s the unequivocal capital to showcase the best of Italy. What better way to experience the Milan Expo in the lap of luxury than through one of the Leading Hotels of the World, the very fashionable 5-star Carlton Hotel Baglioni located in the heart of Milan’s world renowned fashion district.
Immerse yourself in the glamour of Italy’s fashion capital, as the Carlton Hotel Baglioni opens onto the famous Via della Spiga, home to some of the most prestigious fashion houses in the world. The ambiance at the Carlton Baglioni marries fashion and culture, culminating in a warm and inviting experience, with Italian marble floors, sleek and elegant Italian furniture, as well as a vast selection of contemporary artwork.
The classic rooms are generously apportioned and start at 20 meters squared, with bespoke duchess silk drapery and bed covers, luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets, and elegant furnishings in a rich jewel tone color scheme. The large and elegantly appointed marble bathrooms feature state-of-the-art fixtures for a luxurious home-away-from-home experience. The grand deluxe rooms feature a contemporary décor and start at 35 meters squared and can be combined to shape a multi-room pied-a-terre with views over Via Senato.
To indulge in the romantic side of Milan, the deluxe suites are sized at 60 meters squared and some include an ensuite outdoor terrace overlooking Via della Spiga and Via Senato—making an ideal spot to enjoy an alfresco breakfast or aperitif.
Enjoy a meal anytime of day in the charming Caffe Baglioni, with views of the charming landscaped garden in a greenhouse setting. Famed Milanese atelier, Rebosio + Spagnulo, recently redesigned the new café as a contemporary and fashionable hotspot that reflects the character of the neighborhood with stunning contemporary Murano glass chandeliers as the focal point. Enjoy small plates and classic Milanese dishes that follow the principals of the slow food trend, using healthy, clean, new and fair trade provisions.
For fine Milanese gastronomy, dine at the historic Baretto al Baglioni, the famous dining destination formerly on via Sant’Andrea which has found a new home in the Carlton Hotel Baglioni. The dark mahogany walls, vintage wooden friezes, antique English furnishings, and paintings depicting horses and hunting scenes in the countryside give the bar an exclusive English club feel, evocative of yesteryear.
