Set to open in Milan in 2011 is the Armani Hotel, situated in Via Manzoni, one of the most prestigious streets in Milan’s fashion district.
The designer’s name will become muse to ninety-five luxurious guest rooms, a gourmet restaurant and Armani Spa.
The hotel will occupy floors two to eight of the historic building, which was built by architect Enrico A Griffini in 1937.
Born of a collaboration between Giorgio Armani and Emaar Properties, it will be part of the chain of Armani hotels, resorts and residences currently being built in the world’s major cities.
“I feel a very special involvement in the project for the Armani Hotel Milano as it is located here, in my hometown,” Armani told Vogue UK.
“Every aspect of the hotel is a reflection of my aesthetic philosophy, and its position, above the Manzoni 31 concept store, will offer my guests the chance to experience a complete Armani lifestyle.
I believe the hotel’s design will perfectly fit the spirit of Milan as a capital of style, whilst offering a new experience of hospitality within its fashion district.”
