Rated 5 out of 5 by JLJSC This hotel has a great staff
Francesca, the lady at the reception was very warm, friendly and kind.
She disimulated very well my poor handling of the Itian language, did recognize my gold status and offered us a superb room that made us regret not being able to stay longer.
The room was very comfortable and all staff friendly and efficient.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ken99 Hotel is under construction
The hotel is under construction and the work started early morning with heavy drilling. The noise was very loud and one point I had to drop from a conference call because of the background noise. Also, the AC in the room did not cool the room to normal US expectations. I would say it cooled to around 78F.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lovetotravel Need Maintenance and Better Service
1. Room temperature was 23.5-24 c, too hot. Advised desk. Maintenance reported could not be fixed. Desk said they had no rooms to change us to. Very uncomfortable night.
2. Very difficult to moderate water temp in shower. Even when we found the narrow sweet spot, the temp fluctuated.
3. One desk clerk, Marco, was flip, inattentive, and didn't seem to have time to answer basic questions. Unfortunately he was on duty every time I approached desk. Concierge interrupted his phone call when I approached, but gave such a short, curt answer to my question, my wife and I just proceeded on our own.
4. Over 2.5 weeks we stayed at 5 hotels in Italy, One other was 5 star, the remaining were 3 or 4, but they were all more comfortable and courteous than the Westin Palace.
5. I couldn't help thinking the hotel keeps some substandard rooms for those using SPG points - like Room 108. Smaller than I expected, on an air shaft, and definitely not well maintained.
We like Westin and found the above unusual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlmgf Did not dissapoint
My wife and I were very satissfied with our stay at the Milan Westin. We were upgraded to a very nice room on arrival and the staff was extremely helpfull in answering all of our concerns. We were able to walk to all of our destinations as the location is central in the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PorscheC4S Very nice hotel
this is the second year in a row that we stayed at the Westin Palace and nothing has changed. A very nice hotel,good location with easy access to many attractions.
WiFi service could be improved and still no coffee in your room. Hope to be back again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCL1937 A hotel you want to come back to stay at
I am a business traveller and have been visiting Milan for over 20years.
This was my first stay at the Westin but between the staff and the hotel environment I am going to make sure it is my permanent choice
Congratulations to the Milan Westin team

Personnel at breakfast and gym not welcoming, sometimes rude, looked bored
The terrace on the 8th floor was dirty and looked abandoned

Rated 5 out of 5 by cleo33 I was blown away
Our room was upgraded. I've been upgraded before but not like this. There was a sauna in our suite, with a view if the Duomo in the distance. Fantastic room. Fantastic service. I couldn't fault it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZZoya Great place to stay at - if someone else is paying
Nice hotel, good location, but a bit overpriced for what it is. And I really don't appreciate the places where they make you pay for ironing your clothes instead of providing the iron!

Quality is perception of the client, there are more nice hotels, what makes the difference here is the staff friendliness, much better than other Milan hotels. Well done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Feelingplatinumcheated Avoid at all costs because they will get you
I have read the negative feedbacks about this hotel And a lot of it has to do with value and the administration writes back that we are so sorry and it is just laughable where they don't just offer something to the person that they feel they were cheated out of especially if it was an experience that they should've been comfortable with. I was traveling with my family and worked out all the details with breakfast and with Wi-Fi with my platinum status and it turned out that they read the letter of the platinum contract and would not extend the breakfast courtesy or the Internet to the second room which I paid equal to the amount of the first room. I was told there was a certain amount of cash and points and when I left it seemed double that amount along with the stingy platinum rule, the room was on one of the lowest floors which had tons of noise and there was plenty of time to make that a perfect experience with the higher floors and the better views but it never happened. The management should be fired and replaced because of the chintzy offering of a breakfast that might've been worth $10-$20 in the states but was going for $60 and was the least expensive that I saw on my trip in Europe his year. Overall this experience made me rethink along with the amount of monies that I had to spend about this platinum and the points that I better used with another card because the value is not even close to being equal with the competition. I would also only recommend to anyone else to stay at a hotel which has a club floor Especially if they are traveling with their family And paying dearly for these benefits

Rated 5 out of 5 by BocaGirl 8 Days - Flawless Stay!
Stayed at this hotel last year and had a nice stay.
The hotel is lovely, elegant and beautifully maintained. This May back again but for 8 days. Was greeted at the front desk by Franceso, very pleasant and professional. My SPG status was acknowledged and was upgraded to a beautiful, large room on the sixth floor. My request for a quiet room was certainly met. I was able to open my windows at night for fresh air & a peaceful nights rest.
The service was excellent. And believe me, during eight days I had many requests. All the concierge were friendly and helpful. Riccardo booked train tickets for my trips to surrounding towns and gave me additional info to get around. Housekeeping was
exceptional, quick and courteous and I am picky.
I only had breakfast in the restaurant, good although a little pricey. Relaxing in the lobby lounge was a treat. Lovely surroundings and the attendant always remembered how I liked my latte.
This year free wifi in the lobby, which was a great improvement. I couldn't connect to my iphone so the assistance manager did it for me. Wifi in the room was perfect, FaceTimed the states everyday.
The location is in a quiet, business area near the Centrale Train Station (a 10 minute walk). Although, you are a quick taxi ride to fine restaurants or a 10 minute walk to great shopping. If you are looking to be near the Duomo with crowds right outside your door - this is not the place for you. That area is a few minutes away by taxi or Metro.
Looking forward to going back next spring. Lovely, intimate hotel with truly caring, professional staff. What a pleasure.
