Principe di Savoia

Principe di Savoia Exterior
For nearly a century, the neoclassical Hotel Principe di Savoia, Dorchester Collection has been the benchmark hotel for all of Milan. In spite of its large size (10 floors, 301 rooms and suites), the Principe has the atmosphere of a boutique hotel — intimate, personal and private. Elegantly decorated in late-19th-century finery of lavish damasks, rich colors and collectors’ antiques in marbles and woods, the Principe is also wholly 21st century with an eye for technology and a “your wish is our command” concierge team. If the Principe’s unabashed style makes it the landmark destination for fashion royalty, its rooftop spa, hush-hush vibe and enviable address (out of the center traffic and just a 10-minute drive, vintage tram ride or metro trip to the fashion capital’s epicenter, via Monte Napoleone) create the perfect getaway for a very private affair. Prep for afternoon tea, cookies and people-watching at the pastel-hued ground-floor lounge Il Salotto and later hold court at the Principe Bar, the hotel’s newly renovated cocktail bar, a hot spot for Fashion Week’s royal entourage as well as the local Milanese weekender.
