Of all the cities in Italy, Milan is clearly the most fashion-forward and chic. Therefore it is no surprise that a W Hotel is slated to open in Milan in the spring of 2014. The luxury chain rose to popularity in the hippest neighborhoods of large American cities (New York alone has four of them) and the brand has chosen Milan for its first W in Italy.
The 76-room property is well-located on Via Brera, super close to La Scala, the Brera Gallery and Milan’s best shopping streets. W is managed by Starwood Hotels so if you’re a member of the reward program Starwood Preferred Guest, you might have luck booking a room with points. W is well-known for its bars and lounges, so look for the W Milan to become a hot nightlife destination, too.
