    Leading hotel company Meliá Hotels International, today announce a new milestone for its cutting edge, lifestyle brand ME by Meliá as the name continues to grow globally. ME by Meliá, specialising in modern and high energy hotels at the heart of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, will open its Milan doors near to the famous “fashion quadrilateral”, at the Piazza della Repubblica. The hotel will be close to the Corso Como, one of the chicest areas of the city. The new ME Milan, which will be housed in a building by renowned architect Aldo Rossi, will be completely renovated to the style of the late architect. It will have 132 rooms, including 34 suites – amongst which will be the signature penthouse “Suite ME” – Lounge-Bar and Restaurant, and ultra-modern conference rooms.

    The rooftop bar, another hallmark of ME hotels will be an impressive 600 square metres in size and will boast panoramic views over the city, showing off sights including the Garibaldi towers.

    ME by Meliá is for cultured, fashionable guests who are driven by new experiences and opportunities. The brand has been built on first-rate service, and ME Milan will be no exception. Each guest’s stay will be orchestrated by the dedicated Aura Manager, whose job it is to know the city back-to-front and use this knowledge to make the hotel’s service truly bespoke.

    Gabriel Escarrer, CEO and Vice Chairman of Meliá Hotels International, said “The economic and industrial capital of Italy has been awaiting a hotel such as this. The announcement of a new ME in Milan, prior to the imminent openings of ME Ibiza and ME Mallorca, constitutes the next step in the international positioning of the ME by Meliá brand as providing revered hotels for modern and discerning travellers, combining business and pleasure with authentic lifestyle experiences. If each ME hotel is unique because of its design, its energy and its power to become a social epicentre, ME Milan will undoubtedly make a mark in the hotel, culinary and leisure offerings of the city”.

    ME Milan is set to launch in 2015. The news follows the exciting announcements of ME Ibiza (2014), ME Mallorca (2014) and Zaha Hadid’s ME Dubai (2016).It will be the first ME hotel in Italy, where Meliá already manages successful hotels including Gran Meliá Rome, Meliá Villa Capri and Meliá Genoa.
