Set in an 18th-century palazzo, once a former bank, the Park Hyatt Milan boasts interiors designed by American-born, Paris-based architect Edward Tuttle. It aims to wow from the outset. Guests are greeted by a lobby decorated with sophisticated materials such as warm travertine stone and alabaster, and topped with a 30-foot glass-domed cupola. There’s a discernibly modern aesthetic throughout the rest of the hotel, though, from the vibrant modern art scattered throughout the public areas to the contemporary color palettes (creams, beiges, and gentle grays). Rooms are correspondingly elegant, with high ceilings, expensive dark woods, rich wool carpets, and hand-selected furnishings (Murano light fixtures, Bang & Olufsen TVs). The bathrooms are especially impressive, not only because of their generous size and marbled interiors, but also thanks to the mirrored walls, double sinks, octagonal stone and glass showers, and Lauro Tonatto bath products.

Park Hyatt Milan enjoys a central location close to the Piazza de la Scala. It's within easy walking distance of the city’s impressive gothic Duomo, where on a fine day visitors can climb to the top and see as far as the Alps. Endless restaurants, bars, and cultural spaces fill the area, as well as local sights and landmarks, from the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II—the glass-enclosed shopping mall with upscale boutiques like Gucci and Prada—to the world-famous Teatro alla Scala. Right opposite Teatro alla Scala, guests will find the Gallerie d’Italia, a distinguished network of palazzos hosting major works by the likes of Canova and Hayez.
