At a Glance

The Four Seasons Milan, housed in a former 15th-century convent, now boasts 67 guest rooms and 51 suites, the notable La Veranda restaurant and, of course, the signature level of service that the Four Seasons brand embodies.

  • The luxurious spa, including a 46-foot-long lap pool
  • The child-friendly amenities (warm cookies and milk before bedtime, babysitting services and the Chocolate Room, made entirely of chocolate)
  • The Saturday morning cooking class in La Veranda’s kitchen (September through May)
  • Afternoon tea in the Il Foyer lounge


Set in the heart of the famous Quadrilatero d’Oro (Golden Triangle) on the Via Gesù (look out a window on one side and you might be able to peak into Donatella Versace’s backyard), the Four Seasons Milano is a consistent favorite with American travelers—thanks to the unbeatable location, impeccable service and understated décor. Some expert travelers call it the five-star chain’s top property in Western Europe; I’d say it ties with the Four Seasons Florence and the two Four Seasons in Istanbul. Originally a convent built in the 1400s, the structure had been a maze of apartments before the Four Seasons acquired it in 1987. During the renovation, ancient columns and frescoes were uncovered in what are now the lobby and the adjacent Il Foyer lounge.

Also notable are the lobby’s people-watching opportunities. When I visited recently with my newborn, the talented (and observant) pianist serenaded us with lullabies while a parade of exceptionally fashionable and fabulous people—locals and tourists—passed by. It was well worth the high price (more than $20) of a cocktail.

Who Should Stay

Devotees of the Four Seasons brand of style and service and those traveling with children will be glad they chose this impeccable hotel.
