Raffaella Pinto • 01/07/2020

The property, which currently features 89 luxurious rooms and suites, will be completely redeveloped, in line with the quality standards of via della Spiga, the centre of Italian high fashion luxury and a strategic hub on a national and global scale.


The hotel, after the renovation, will feature 64 rooms and suites, a restaurant, a lounge bar, a wellness centre with gym and SPA, a bar with a rooftop terrace with a spectacular view of the city of Milan. The retail on the ground floor will present a selection of the main players of the Made in Italy. The hotel opening is scheduled for the beginning of 2023.


The property will be managed by Rocco Forte Hotels, the largest hotel operator in the Luxury segment in Europe with 16 properties, considering the openings of Villa Igea (Palermo) and The Westbund (Shanghai) in 2021 and the Rocco Forte House concept in Rome. The seventh hotel in Italy, The Carlton Hotel Milano will enrich the ideal Grand Tour by Rocco Forte Hotels, together with the already prestigious addresses of Florence, Rome, Sicily and Puglia.

Dario Leone, Head of the Hospitality department in Italy, declares: “The achievement of this agreement, despite the uncertainty linked to the Covid-19 pandemic which has affected above all the hospitality sector, confirms the interest of hotel operators in the luxury segment towards properties located in prestigious locations and in the heart of the main Italian cities. We are proud to have been part of this important project which, in addition to consolidating our professional relationship with Reale Immobili SpA, is also the third operation closed in Italy with the Rocco Forte Hotels group, after the Hotel De la Ville in Rome and Masseria Torre Maizza in Apulia".


"Reale Immobili mission is to enhance and preserve the real estate assets of Reale Group made of iconic and highly prestigious buildings just like our Hotel in Via della Spiga in Milan - declares Alberto Ramella, Director of Reale Immobili - We are proud to have reached this agreement with a partner as Rocco Forte & Family Spa, which allows us to strengthen our positioning in the hotel sector and to provide to the capital of Lombardy region with a completely renovated historic and prestigious hotel. This intervention will allow Milan to increase the quality of the accommodation facilities, also in view of the upcoming 2026 Winter Olympics and the many international events that the city welcomes every year with increasing frequency ".
