The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, today opens the Radisson Blu Hotel, Milan. Formerly known as the Chedi Milan, this contemporary and stylish hotel comprising 250 rooms is situated in Milan’s modern Bovisa district and has been designed by Jaya Ibrahim who has created a perfect blend of Italian sophistication and Indonesian elegance.
Since its first opening, the hotel has received rave reviews. Fortune Magazine proclaimed it as one of the Best New Business Hotels in the World. The UK's Daily Telegraph called it a "super-chic urban retreat" and Vogue UK proclaimed it as "the place to stay if you want to mix with the high fashion crowd in the Italian capital of style".
Understated elegance characterizes the hotel's 250 guest rooms and suites with a spacious average size of 37 m². Embodying a sense of inner calm, the rooms with chic limestone bathrooms feature subtle earth tones and strong white accents, offset by wood, bronze, stone, mosaic and textured ceramic. Each guest room boasts hi-tech amenities such as satellite TV, LCD screen, individual climate control and Radisson's signature service: free high-speed internet access.
What would be a better fit to the Radisson Blu Hotel, Milan than Rezidor's Italian restaurant Filini? The innovative concept, designed by Roy Ackerman, is based on the simplicity and authenticity of food; the flavors are inspired from modern Italian cuisine. At Filini, contemporary design, lightening and music create an atmosphere alla italiana, and make this venue a perfect spot for daily lunch and dinner. Filini opens out onto a beautiful Garden Courtyard for stylish al fresco seating. The hotel further comprises a Lounge Bar – ideally situated between the restaurant, main lobby and meeting rooms, and a testament to sleek design thanks to its impressive marble spiral staircase.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Milano is in a league of its own thanks to its beautifully designed meeting facilities. Ideal for events ranging from conferences to board meetings, the property offers 8 meeting rooms, a conference room, an exclusive boardroom and a separate delegate entrance. Enjoying natural light, all rooms are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning, free high-speed internet access and top-of-the-range audio visual equipment.
For a break after a meeting or a day of sightseeing and shopping in Milan the hotel's luxurious Health and Fitness Club is a must. Boasting a steam room, a private sauna, a heated indoor swimming pool under a spectacular glass atrium, whirlpools, a fitness centre and numerous treatment rooms, it is a true oasis where body and soul can relax.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Milan is located 6.5 km northeast from the historic city centre and a 30 minutes drive from the airport Milan Malpensa. The city's exhibition centres, Fiera Milano City and Fiera Milano, are respectively just 3 km and 7.5 km away.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
