Can you ever have too much of a good thing? In the booklet lying on the table in our Junior suite in Park Hyatt, we read about the designer mirrors and the flattering designer lighting in the rooms. Indeed, there were so many mirrors that I twice almost bumped into one. There even was a large mirror in front of the toilet, so that you could see yourself sitting there – quite a new experience. And there were many lamps (a necessity, because there was only a small window giving out on a courtyard), but the lighting was throughout not very functional. Flattering, yes, but not at all convenient for reading, or, in the bathroom, for shaving or applying make-up. But the Junior suite was very spacious, the bathroom was really huge, with (a.o.) a lovely shower cabin, there were lots and lots of toiletries, the bed was very comfortable, so maybe I should not have started this review with criticizing. There was free mineral water and juice, and some fruit.
The location of Park Hyatt is great: next to the famous Galleria, and just a few steps from the Duomo. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. When we arrived, it was nice to receive some detailed information about Milan. We had prosecco in the lobby, under the beautiful glass dome, and were served by a very friendly waiter. The next morning the breakfast buffet was also set up in the lobby, and some people (including us) apparently found it not very comfortable eating breakfast while sitting on a rather low, easy chair. But the breakfast food was very good, and the cappuccino was excellent (served in a cup of very thin porcelain, which I loved).
Except the beautiful lobby, we did not like the public areas much, and the corridors on our floor were very anonymous, everywhere the same beige colour, the numbers on the doors making the only difference.
To conclude: in this luxury hotel you will of course be very comfortable, but for us there were also some minor disappointments.
