Extravagant reimagining of a grand Milanese palazzo with marble and gold leaf interiors and a top-notch restaurant
Willfully ostentatious, Palazzo Parigi offers an emphatically five-star experience. Housed in a glistening white 10-story building designed by lauded French architect Pierre Yves Rochon, the property has an elegance that echoes Palazzo Cramer, which stood on the site back when the surrounding streets were canals and was destroyed during World War II. The interiors sparkle with Carrara marble and gold leaf, and the overall feel is gloriously nouveau riche. The grand spa (set to open in spring 2014) on the third floor will offer a hammam, sauna and indoor and outdoor relaxation areas.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are big and brash, with enough gold trim to put Liberace to shame. Most offer broad balconies with views of the Milan cityscape. Well designed and simple to use bedside buttons make personalizing the space a breeze; the blackout option is particularly handy for light sleepers. Bathrooms are smooth expanses of travertine marble, with plush towels, free Clarins toiletries and robes with a sky-high thread count. Toilets are set within their own little bathroom within a bathroom, allowing couples to share the space yet maintain personal privacy.
The gourmet restaurant's theatrical layout ensures that the open kitchen takes center stage; some dishes are finished up by the chefs right in front of you. The airy lounge bar has a striking backlit veined marble bar and Liberty-style decorations, and the unusually high ceilings and giant windows let the light flood in. The grand spa (set to open in spring 2014) will cover 12,000 square feet, with an additional 1,000-square-foot VIP area; it's designed to help guests forget they're in the middle of a bustling metropolis.
In the Area
Although the immediate surroundings are a little anonymous, you’re a short walk from the maze of pedestrian streets, plazas and palazzos that make up Brera, Milan’s answer to Greenwich Village. An evening stroll around this neighborhood will take you past everything from palm readers and street jazz musicians to expensive antiques shops and art galleries. Via Solferino, which runs almost directly behind the hotel, boasts a host of restaurants and contemporary clothing and design stores. The Pinacoteca di Brera, arguably Milan’s most impressive museum, is close enough to be visible from the upper floors of the hotel, and the Baroque Chiesa San Marco, Milan’s second-largest church, stands nearby.
