Advice on FAMILY HOTLES in MILAN near the DUOMO

Hi
Since we are now flying from Milan to Prague we have decided to go to Milan for 2 nights.
We have been before and would like to stay near the duomo.
So far the hotels I have found that are available are:

http://www.ihg.com/crowneplaza/hotel...cc/hoteldetail

http://www.regency-milano.com/

http://www.ascotmilano.it/

However, I know your knowledge is better then mine so I thought I would see what you thought would be best.

As always ...many many thanks!

By now you should have developed some sense on judging a hotel - book one. Seriously. Or look at Tripadvisor reviews.

I must admit it is much easier . . but still like to see if there are any that I don't know of that have been fantastic. All of these have availability . .much easier dealing with hotels then apartments that's for sure!

My only question would be do they have family sized rooms, i.e. quads? Most hotel rooms are sized for 2.

These ones have offered either a suite . .so separate living area or a promise that the two rooms would have an interconnecting door.

If you get no replies from people in the know you could check the traveler reviews on booking.com or hotels.com. Do either of the three have any extra special quality to them that would make one stand out over the other?

Crazy, I'm amazed that you are still expecting assistance after completely ignoring 99.9% of the advice you've been given on your other threads.

Perhaps your travel agent will have better advice for you. Or just pick one of the above, it's not that hard, really.

None of the hotels are "near" the Duomo. The Crowne Plaza is near the central train station which would make it convenient to the train to Malpensa, assuming you're flying out of Malpensa and not Linate.

Please, there is no need to shout when posting your questions. (Shouting is using all caps.)
It tends to put people off.

Goldens: ?? who was shouting? I don't see any ALL CAPS except for a couple of words in the title.. Did you mean to post that on a different thread?

I'm pretty sure a word or two in caps is not considered shouting by most folks. There is a huge difference between >>I would definitely NOT do such and such<< [for emphasis] and >>I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT DO SUCH AND SUCH [shouting]

Title - five words in lower case, four words in caps. Looks like shouting to me, too.

Let's cut crazy family some slack. A few caps in her title is the least 'crazy' thing she's posted yet

Yes, janisj I was talking about the title on this thread as well as so of the other threads posted by the OP.
I did say please to the OP as a gentle reminder.

I just thought it was a bit sharp for someone who joined yesterday to be calling someone to task over such a minor indiscretion.

If that upsets you, just wait til you see some other things posted on here.
