The Park Hyatt Milan Hotel Review is part of the Round The Atlantic Trip Report.
Getting There: If you are arriving from Malpensa Airport, the best way to get to the hotel is to take the fast-ish train from the airport to the city center and either cab or take the metro to the hotel. I landed in the local airport, Linate, so I just took a taxi. Note: Uber in Milan is not cheap. All I found was Uber Black.
Everyone talks about traveling off the beaten path. Sometimes, it’s nice to get off of that and get back on the red carpet. After my stay at the Insane Asylum, I was more than ready for pampering.
I arrived at the hotel and my room was not ready. No matter, I had an espresso in the beautiful atrium.
The hotel is located minutes away from everything. I walked to the Duomo Di Milano, the Sforza Castle, and was mere footsteps from the McDonald’s in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
I used a DSU and was treated to a very elegant room. Off the top of my head, I would have to say that it was one of the best in all of my travels. The room was on the 2nd floor, the floor historically reserved for royalty because of the ornate rooms with high ceilings. The room had huge windows that opened directly onto the street.
An espresso machine in Italy? It seems insulting to the baristas. But, I won’t tell if you won’t.
A tub, a rain shower, and marble is how a bathroom should be. I turned on Bocelli and did my best impression of the character from To Rome With Love.
Park Hyatt’s service is always exceptional. They really know how to make guests feel comfortable. My only complaint is how they send guests to expensive restaurants instead of recommending local flavor.
I’m sure there is better breakfast in bistros than at the hotel but we cheap, opportunistic points people won’t pass on free breakfast, especially when it’s at the Park Hyatt. The buffet was disappointing but I was able to order one item off of the a la carte menu. Obviously, I picked the most expensive item: a lobster and caviar omelette. Note: caviar does not taste good warm.
