Italy, Milan, Uptown Palace ****

Hotel Uptown Palace ****

After Cannes we quickly headed to Milan, where I had found a nice hotel to stay for the night. Unfortunately we got there about midnight. So again, we were so tired and when I went to check us in, the reception told that they had made us an upgrade and guess where? To the Presidential Suite!!! 🙂 So I´m quite glad that the bed bugs were in JW Marriott Cannes *****!! Thanks to them I got to spend my first night in a Presidential Suite! 🙂 Yaaayy!

Actually it was also great for that reason too that the next day we had less to drive to the next destination. So all good. From Milan it was only 2 hours to Bormio, whereas from Cannes it would have been 8! So we needed the extra time to enjoy the hotel there.

General

Reception and welcome Reception was good and the welcome was great. 🙂
Welcome drink No.
Free upgrade Yes!! To the Presidential Suite!
Valet and parking There was some confuse about it, I think we parked outside the hotel. No valet, I think.
Concierge Yes.

Breakfast

Sparkling wine No.
Hot meal Yes.
In general

 

The breakfast wasn´t even comparable to the hotel room itself. It was a bit too ordinary. It was like a cafeteria and not that clean-looking…

The room

In general

 

Oh, I loved the room! We basically had the entire wing on the top floor, we had windows everywhere and all the windows were to the ground. Also we had this big balcony and wow, the view was to the Milan Cathedral. It was sooooo beautiful. The living room and the bedroom were totally separated as well. The whole room felt so luxury and great. The feeling was like 100% different than in JW Marriott Cannes *****.
Room type Presidential Suite:
