Rated 4 out of 5 by SooMoo Great staff and location
Building and rooms getting to be a bit long in the tooth. But, everything works, and reception, concierge and restaurant staffs are outstanding.
Not on the menu?? They will make it for you.
They even have wifi coverage in their garden.

Your front desk responsable Mss Mara Falcier is simple "oustanding". She takes care of every detail, with diligence and profesionalism. She is one of the best front desk managers you have around the world. I shall comes back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChiaraMarte85 Classy and warm hotel
This hotel is located very close to the heart of Milan (15 minutes walking and 5 minutes by metro).
The staff is always smiling and welcoming. Very helpful and always available to satisfy your requests.
The brunch on Sunday is a must-try... aperitivo is pretty good as well and the venue is very nice (one of the best in Milan)!
Room service food is not the best, but there are plenty of places close to the hotel where you can grab dinner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobW FRONT OFFICE MANAGER & CONCIERGE THE BEST
The Front Office Manager, Paolo Marroni, was the most helpful I've seen. I do White House and Congress press and when my US phone would not work, he walked me to the local phone store, translated the Italian for me, and made sure I had a working phone -- critical to my work. I would have been out of touch for a week without his intervention. He also made pre-arrangements for our having nicest room possible. Likewise Executive Concierge Dionisio Gabaldo made arrangements for my wife and me to see the Last Supper painting and the Duomo Cathedral in Milan and a train to spectacular, scenic Lake Como. The hotel is wonderfully personal and its staff, led by Paolo, is phenomenal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shakeh Experience at the Hotel
Overall we had a positive experience with the hotel, especially with the staff who were very helpful, attentive and very friendly.
The location of our room was very good for us. The king size bed was very comfortable. We had 2 concerns: the shower was too narrow and getting in and out of the shower was hard for my husband, and the other one was the volume of the music in the garden in the evenings.
We were very appreciative of the manager's welcoming us with a bottle of champagne and the butter cookies later during our stay.
Thank you again for your service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMS55 Beautiful Milan
As a Canadian and my first ever visit to Milan I was very impressed with this location. The staff were wonderful and made ever effort to communicate with me in English. Not being able to speak Italian they were very patient and professional, provided tips for restaurants, shopping and local sights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Colonel56 A centrally located hotel with a boutique feel
The Sheraton Diana is an excellent central choice in Milan and is worth a visit for the H bar alone.
The property is centrally located just 10 minutes walk from the main shopping and commercial district of Milan. It is next door to a park which is great for a run, or relaxing on a sunny day.
The hotel is relatively small and has just 6 stories which gives it a cosy, personalised feel. It has a large garden with a fountain which I imagine would be great on a sunny day or warm evening. On the ground floor is the H bar - without doubt the highlight of the property. The furniture is eclectic and the large windows lookout into the garden. In the evening there is house music and often a DJ - which combined with the buffet of snacks and canapés (which are complimentary if you order drinks) ensures it is popular with locals and hotel guests alike. The large number of outsiders ensures a buzzing atmosphere particularly in the early evening before dinner.
As a SPG platinum I was upgraded to a junior suite overlooking the garden. Like much of the hotel the room was somewhat tired and in need of a refurb. While called a junior suite it was really just a large room with lots of empty space. The bathroom was similarly large and rather empty (although a separate shower and bathtub is always a plus). Unfortunately the double bed was actually two singles pushed together - which made for a rather uncomfortable sleep. Standard Sheraton amenities were provided.
The gym is in a small room on the 5th floor. While the equipment is new and modern the small size of the room means there are not many machines and range is limited. On the two occasions I visited the two running machines were occupied so I eventually went outside for a run (a nicer choice anyway).
As there is no lounge breakfast was offered in the dining room downstairs (beside the H bar). The area was rather small and crowded. There are few single or double tables and we were allocated what effectively was a communal table with 6 other people. It was a little too early in the morning for sharing a meal with strangers in my view. Consequently on subsequent occasions I ordered room service breakfast. The breakfast spread in the dining room was poor with overall limited selections - and unfortunately the room service breakfast is not much better.
In summary the hotel has an excellent location and a fantastic bar and garden - for these reasons alone I will be back. With a renovation and improvement in the breakfast layout and spread it could become a real gem in the Starwood portfolio.
