Meliá Milano, one of the most historic hotels in Milan, has been inaugurated after a total restyling of the hall, restaurant and meeting rooms, thanks to  the innovative design of the Spanish architect Alvaro Sans and Vittorio Grassi Architects, through a concept that is more functional to the needs of a cosmopolitan clientele.

Meliá Hotels International, a leading global group in high-quality hotels, presents a turning point in Milanese hospitality haut de gamme through the new look of its hotel in via Masaccio, a destination now absolutely essential for the most demanding travelers located a stone’s throw from the modern area of City Life, the new mecca of luxury shopping. The authors of the rebirth of this hotel with twenty years of history are Alvaro Sans, one of the most appreciated and brilliant Spanish architects in the world, and Vittorio Grassi Architects.

Each area of the hotel is made with elements that create and separate the spaces without walls. Inspired by a more functional and architectural approach in the division of the various rooms of this structure from the industrial plant.

The single-use areas are abolished, the conference space is doubled and the green is the protagonist both as a color solution and as an ecological oasis. The structure is animated by luxurious internal gardens around which the various environments develop harmoniously, the green creates a continuity between the outdoor and indoor spaces. Another of the main elements of the project is light, enhanced by high skylights and sumptuous crystal chandeliers that remained unchanged during the restyling.

From the lobby the space leads to the Mamì Restaurant, the new eclectic Milanese gastronomic address, where customers are welcomed in a sophisticated environment with soft lighting and custom-made furnishings carefully selected to create a contemporary mood, with soft shapes and materials of historic Milanese design. Adjacent to the hall, the Elyxr Meliá cafeteria looks like a large open space,  with tables both inside and outside, where the areas dedicated to bar, restaurant, meeting, co-working fit perfectly.
