WHEN INN MILAN: The second Armani Hotel is scheduled to open Nov. 10 in Milan. Designed by Giorgio Armani, the luxury venue will be furnished with Armani Casa linens, fabrics and custom furniture. It is located in the Manzoni 31 building, which also houses the Emporio Armani megastore and Armani Nobu.
The designer’s first hotel opened in Dubai in April 2010 in the emirate’s soaring Burj Khalifa tower, comprising 160 rooms, eight restaurants and a spa, among other amenities, and 144 Armani-designed private apartments.
The Armani Hotels & Resorts project is a venture between Giorgio Armani SpA and Dubai-based developer Emaar Properties PJSC, established in 2005. Dubai and Milan are only two of a planned collection of hotels, resorts and residences to be unveiled in key cities around the world by the partnership.
