I travel to Milan frequently for work, and my local associates always book me into the Savoia. It is a fantastic hotel. I have no complaints whatsoever.
The rooms are beautiful and baroque (if a bit on the small side for singles), the service is attentive and there are often interesting celebrity guests (I've seen David Beckham, numerous fashion designers and models, a few Formula One drivers and even Mick Jagger... and that's just off the top of my head). The atmosphere is just unbeatable.
The food is also outstanding, although I have to admit that I've not dined there as frequently as I do other hotels, due to the very gracious nature of my colleagues in Milan, who always insist on taking me out for dinners when I'm in town.
I've also not had a chance to indulge in the spa and pool facilities, however my girlfriend did tag along on one of my trips and she did a full spa day while I was working and was absolutely in heaven.
This is obviously not the hotel for you if you're expecting a sleek, modern experience, but I can't imagine anyone complaining. The wireless internet service does leave something to be desired, so I suppose that's worth mentioning. Unless you're planning to use your hotel room as a full-time office, I don't think that's a dealbreaker for 99% of travelers.More
