Introduction to Discovering Great Italian Hotels

This was an interesting trip for me - part work, part pleasure. A week before I eventually left for Italy, I was told to pack my bags as I needed to head to Milan - and while I won't go into what work I do, let's just say that this was a very sudden and unexpected trip. With that in mind, I decided to make the most of it, and plan my stays around some of the best Italian hotels as part of route. The only hotel I didn't have a say in was 'Room Mate Guilia' since it was part of work, but the rest were all chosen carefully to make the most of my Italian stay.

Exactly a year ago I had found myself in Italy, and stayed at one of the best hotels in Rome - but I was looking at different hotels this time - and due to the number of hotels, I decided to mix it between points and paying cash. Excelsior is widely considered to be one of the highest ranked hotels in Milan by many, Room Mate Guilia was the #1 ranked hotel in Milan according to Tripadvisor, Boscolo Exedra Roma was something which caught my eye the last time I was in Rome, along with the St Regis, and the ultimate hotel fantasy of mine was the Armani Hotel in Milan. I've been a huge Armani fan, and ever since I had dinner at the Armani Hotel in Dubai - I really wanted to stay here, and I finally got my chance this trip - so I took it.

Costs aside - this was a great way to experience some of the finest Italy has to offer - and ultimately to see if they stood up to the massive expectations everyone has with them. Either way - I was excited to explore Italian Fine Living further.
