Since its inauguration in 1863, the Grand Hotel et De Milan, first known as the "Albergo di Milano", has been considered one of the city's most exclusive establishments. The eclectic architectural style of the hotel, complete with striking neo-gothic detailing, made it one of the most fashionable of its time, patronised by a steady stream of illustrious personages, from eminent politicians to influential businessmen and celebrities of international fame. The Grand Hotel et De Milan's telegraph service, representing what was, at the time, the very latest in innovative modern technology, further distinguished the property from all the other hotels in the city of Milan.

In the dining rooms and the winter garden guests sojourning at the Grand Hotel et De Milan enjoyed the finest cuisine and musical entertainment in the most elegant of environments. Over time, additional floors were added to the original palazzo and the elevator designed to transport guests to the highest floors is still in use to this very day. In the 1970's, Italian haute couture dominated the international fashion scene and the Grand Hotel et De Milan provided the venue for the catwalk shows which were to launch some of the most prestigious names of today's "made in Italy", including that of Ferrè-Mattioli. It is not a coincidence that Milan's Via Montenapoleone, street famous for its designer fashion boutiques, lies directly opposite the hotel.

The Grand Hotel et De Milan, member of The Leading Hotels of the World, is associated not only with the most important of Italy's fashion houses, but also with one of the country's greatest cultural institutions: the Scala Opera House. The hotel' vicinity to the theatre resulted in the Grand Hotel et De Milan becoming a veritable dependence of the Scala, offering accommodation to all of the great artists to have performed there. The famous Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi resided in the hotel for 27 years and it was in his room at the Grand Hotel et De Milan, today's "Royal Suite Verdi", that a number of his most celebrated works were written.

Grand Hotel et De Milan's guest book contains the signatures of some of the world's greatest artists, including those of Ernest Hemmingway, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Enrico Caruso, Maria Callas, Rudolf Nureyev, and Luchino Visconti. The majority of the bedrooms and suites have been named after one of the celebrities to have graced the Grand Hotel et De Milan with their presence.

The Grand Hotel et De Milan has two restaurants: the "Caruso" and the "Don Carlos". Here guests savour beautifully presented traditional Italian cuisine. The hotel's well-stocked wine cellar contains an impressive selection of all the most highly acclaimed Italian wines.

The Grand Hotel et De Milan is one of the city's most exclusive locations where to host an important conference, meeting, or social event; the "Puccini", "Giordano" and "Verdi" halls offering a quite unique combination of old world elegance and the latest in contemporary meeting room technology.
