Hyatt International opens the Park Hyatt Milano, its first Italian hotel, on 15 October. Interiors at the 117-room, five-star hotel are designed by Paris-based US designer Ed Tuttle, who recently worked on the Amanresorts brand. As well as guestrooms, Tuttle has created bar and restaurant interiors, a health spa and public spaces. Tuttle says he has tried to respect the standalone palazzo’s ‘historic style’, while giving it a ‘refined, contemporary attitude with clean lines’. Italian Travertine stone, walnut furniture and silk and velvet are used throughout the building to create a feeling of ‘tranquility’, a Hyatt spokeswoman says.
