Expert Review

Milan's newest hotel, part of the Italian group Boscolo Hotels, does for Europe's hotel scene what La Scala did for opera: takes it to the top. Architect Italo Rota completely re-imagined a massive former bank building, transforming it into a futuristic hybrid of Alice in Wonderland fantasy and space-age nightclub. From the gleaming white lobby, an immense bejeweled "harlequin" column plunges below to the Lambruscheria bar and restaurant, on the same level as the spa, with its series of sculptured plastic and fluid forms. As for the 154 posh guestrooms, no two are alike, but all feature delightfully airy bathrooms and a dozen of fragrant shower gels arrayed like a rainbow of test tubes on the pristine counters. Details like this add up to a five-star hotel that's a showstopper in every way.
