Coveted Edition travelled to Milan, Italy to visit and experience a unique world of harmony and privacy, with a mix of calm with a luxury fostered in pure Armani style, imparting a new aesthetic excellence to the concept of comfort.
The Armani Hotel Milano is the second hotel under the Armani Hotels & Resorts banner, a collaboration between Giorgio Armani S.p.a., one of the world’s most prestigious fashion brands and Emaar Properties PJSC, the creator of iconic development projects. The launch of the Armani Hotel Milano has followed the opening of the world’s first Armani Hotel in Dubai, located within Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. The aesthetic of Armani Hotel Milano is unique. Giorgio Armani has lent his personal design touches to this rationalist style building, originally designed by Enrico A. Griffini in 1937.
The Armani Hotel Milano experience is epitomised by a unique concept of service delivered by the Lifestyle Department. Lifestyle Managers are the point of contact for guests, whose every need and wish will be fulfilled with discreet assistance at all times. Guests will be looked after from the moment they make a reservation, with personal care that facilitates every requirement and responds to every need. As soon as guests arrive in the lobby looking out on Via Manzoni, their Lifestyle Manager will be on hand to welcome them and take them to the seventh floor.
The Armani Hotel Milano, located in the heart of the city, within the extraordinary palazzo at Via Manzoni 31, offer 95 rooms and suites offer a variety of options: from Armani Deluxe Rooms (up to 44 square metres) to Armani Signature Suites, ranging from 190 to 203 square metres, on two levels connected by a magnificent stairway that makes a striking architectural impact. Mini-bars, high-tech amenities, cupboards that vanish into the walls – referencing the passion for order and sense of space pursued by Giorgio Armani over many years in his own homes – create an atmosphere of warmth and restraint within a commodious setting.

The eighth floor, covering an area of 1,000 square metres, is entirely devoted to beauty and relaxation, bringing together a range of treatments and therapies that promote physical and mental harmony and wellbeing. The Armani/SPA consists of six dedicated treatment rooms, a Couples Suite – for the inseparable – a fitness gym and a relaxation pool. The sunscreen walls that filter out the bright light and the roof with its magnificent view across the skyline establish a slightly surreal mood.

Our favourite space is the Armani/Ristorante located on the seventh floor of the Armani Hotel in Milan that has been awarded one Michelin Star at the end of 2015. Backlit onyx elements, furniture and gentle background music create the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a casual lunch or an aperitif before dinner, not to mention the cocktail parties and after dinner, live music entertainment. An internal connecting bridge has been designated as a smoking area.
Their role is to anticipate guests’ needs from the first moment of the journey, both within and outside the Armani Hotel Milano and to ensure that guests get the most out of their stay and visit Milan: from facilitating the check-in procedure in the comfort of the suite, to personalizing the stay with customized SPA treatments or with a dinner in the panoramic restaurant of the hotel.
The purpose of the Lifestyle Manager is to extend Giorgio Armani’s hospitality to each and every guest and to make him feel as relaxed as he would be in his own home.
