Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hotel et de Milan

Via Manzoni 29, Milan, Lombardy, 20121, Italy

Only blocks from La Scala, you'll find everything you would expect from a traditionally elegant European hotel, where ancient tapestries and persimmon velvet enliven a 19th-century look without sacrificing dignity and luxury. The place is sometimes called the Hotel Verdi, because the composer lived here for 27 years; his apartment, complete with his desk, is now the Presidential Suite. The on-site Don Carlos restaurant comes highly recommended.
