Milan to Add a Fashionable Address with ME by Meli? in 2015
ME by Meli? is coming to the fashion capital of Europe when the 132-room ME Milan Il Duca opens near the ?fashion quadrilateral? at the Piazza della Repubblica in May, 2015, not far from the Corso Como. It seems that all fine Italian hotels have signature rooftop bars and so will this one, which will be 2,000 square feet in size and have views of the entire city.
The hotel?s building, originally designed by Aldo Rossi, will be completely renovated to the style of the late architect. When completed, each guest’s stay will be orchestrated by the Aura Manager, whose responsibility is to know the city inside and out, leveraging their knowledge of local culture to make the hotel’s service truly bespoke.
The?ME Milan Il Duca?will follow the openings of the ME Mallorca (May 2014), the ME Ibiza (June 2014), and Zaha Hadid?s ME Dubai (2016). It will be the first ME by Meli? hotel in Italy. There are currently ME Hotels in London, Madrid, Cancun and Cabo with more to follow in 2014.
