Rosewood has been selected by the property’s owner, Gruppo Statuto, to manage the new Milanese hotel. It will be the brand’s 4th Italian hotel and joins a strong European development pipeline, which includes openings in Munich, Salzburg, Amsterdam, and London.
Rosewood Milan will be located on the edge of the city’s fashion district, the Quadrilatero della Moda, and near by the shops and cafes of Via Montenapoleone. Housed inside two historic palazzos, one of which was formerly home to the Italian Commercial Bank, the hotel will further grow the brand’s portfolio of revitalised historic buildings and properties.
Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy will guide the property’s design. The hotel will combine the romantic grandeur of Milan with contemporary touches, and also pay homage to the city’s history as the fashion capital of the world. Parisian firm Studio K.O. will oversee the design, which will seek to bring new life and vibrancy to the site whilst respecting its history and heritage.
The hotel will boast 70 guestrooms, including 20 suites, a bar and restaurant with courtyard and garden, as well as an Asaya wellness centre, complete with spa, pool, and gym.
Rosewood Milan follows recent announcements regarding the brand’s expansion in the Italian market. After the success of the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate resort in Tuscany, new openings are slated for Venice and Rome.
This development comes with great excitement as we continue our growth in Europe and Italy specifically. Rosewood continues to expand to destinations where we know our ‘affluential explorer’ guests want to travel. With all its culture and vitality, Milan ticks all the boxes for a Rosewood urban location and it will round out our portfolio of global fashion capitals where Rosewood has a presence, including our iconic properties in New York, Paris and London.
Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group
We are thrilled to partner with a brand such as Rosewood to bring these historic buildings back to life. By merging our shared experiences and philosophies, we know this hotel will become an immediate icon of high hospitality in Milan -- a trend-setting city that increasingly stands out in the world as an unmissable destination for international travellers and locals alike.
