It's the sort of award that every hotel aspires to. The magazine Travel + Leisure has awarded the Park Hyatt Milano the accolade of "Best hotel in the world for quality of its services."
The American magazine Travel + Leisure is an important publication in the world of hoteliery, because its reviews are conducted by means of direct visits, in total anonymity. Last year, the Park Hyatt Milano was placed fourth in the category of "Best Hotel in Europe." This year's prize is particularly significant, because all aspects of life in the hotel were considered: room service, spa, restaurant, concierge, bar, event organizaiton and so forth.
Part of the credit is due, in addition to the whole staff, to Claudio Ceccherelli, who has managed the Park Hyatt since its opening nine years ago. He developed the structure, right from the beginning, up until today, with 150 people working to provide hospitality services of constant excellence.
The Park Hyatt Milano, the first Hyatt hotel in Italy, is located in a fine building dating back to 1870, brilliantly renovated by architect Ed Tuttle, close to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. This makes it a great location for visitors to the city, as it is close to the Cathedral, Teatro alla Scala, and the boutiques of the high fashion district.
Its high-quality services have brought it many other awards, such as Best in Milan and one of the Top 25 in Europe in the Europe Traveller's Choice Awards (Tripadvisor, 2010), WInner of Travellers Choice Award (Tripadvisor, 2011), World's Best Business Hotel in Italy (Travel + Leisure, 2011), Winner of Travellers Choice Awards (Tripadvisor, 2012).
