There is a stunning entrance to the hotel.  The ramp entrance on the right makes it easy to wheel in your suitcase.  If you’re visiting as a tourist then the huge DoubleTree sign makes for a perfect Instagram photo to let everyone know where you’re staying.

Welcome Cookie

When you check into any DoubleTree in the world you get a welcome cookie.  To receive your welcome cookie is part of the fun of checking in.  Being in Milan I half expected some gelato but I’m glad they’ve got the cookie tradition here too.  The staff speak perfect English and are very friendly.  If you have any queries about your plans in the city they will be keen to help.

Guest Rooms

The rooms are luxurious and everything you’d expect in a DoubleTree.  The WiFi is super fast, complimentary and works all over the property.  You’ll find complimentary water in the fridge.  For those who require a caffeine boost there is coffee and coffee making facilities.  The bed is super comfy and perfect for watching cable on the flat screen TV.

Guest Bathrooms

The guest bathroom is sparkling.  All the amenities you require and more are available.  What better way to finish your bath than to dry off with a warm towel.  Then putting on your bathrobe and slippers before going to relax on the bed.

Buffet Breakfast

The choice at the buffet breakfast is what you’d expect from a DoubleTree.  You’ll find a large selection of pastries, hot and cold meats, cereals, salad, fruits, juices, milk, water and hot drinks.  Something I’ve not seen at breakfast before are roast potatoes.  They were like British pub chips and absolutely delicious.  If you like to eat outside you can take your breakfast to the outdoor patio (below).  There are lots of waitresses who are quick to assist you with your breakfast.

Later in the day you may order lunch and dinner a la carte.  It’s also possible to organize your lunch and dinner as part of your conference.

Outdoor Patio

    I love the Doubletree Hilton cookies, they’re so chewy! This looks like a great and comfortable choice when staying in Milan. I’ve never had roast potatoes for breakfast, but hey there’s a first for everything! Will remember this place when next in Milan!

    Milan… I have some beautiful memories. I was there on a daytrip and so didn’t stay anywhere. This hotel looks awesome as always expected out of Hilton properties… The outdoor patio looks cool…

    I love that cookie tradition- makes me feel at home anytime I visit a Double Tree. Even though the Hilton is a large chain, I love the unique details that set each hotel apart. Would love to visit the Italian bar before heading onto that beautiful patio.

    Double tree by Hilton in Milan looks complete combination of luxury and comfort stay. I loved the outdoor patio, as it is a huge seating area. Having sip of coffee in that italian bar must be great. Also there are many breakfast options with roasted potatoes.

    Love Doubletree’s cookie tradition! It’s such a small thing overall, but so memorable (and tasty!). The hotel looks very comfortable, and the easy tram ride to the Duomo is a plus. We had to make a couple of tram switches from where we stayed in Milan to get there!

    I have always enjoyed staying in the Hilton properties. This property looks great. I prefer hotels which are close to shopping malls or commercial hubs; especially when I am in new country. I like that they have used soothing pastel colors in the room.

    I’m planning a Milan trip next year on my own, and I always like to stay in well known hotels when flying solo as it helps to give e a bit of comfort. Double Tree have a reputation it’s true, they have good attention to detail as you have shown here. I can’t believe you get roast potatoes at Breakfast! I’m sold.
