Baglioni Hotel Carlton

A posh palazzo in fashionable Milan
VERIFIED LUXURY
Since 1962, Italian style, culture and tradition have been preserved at Baglioni Hotel Carlton, a five-story boutique hotel that was once a mansion and has hosted high-profile guests, including the Dalai Lama, Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney.

Located in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, the 18th-century palazzo is the only Milan hotel to boast a discreet doorway onto Via della Spiga, a historic, cobblestone-shopping street in the heart of the chic Quadrilatero.

The family-owned Baglioni Hotel Group’s Milan property incorporates Italian hospitality through intimate touches, such as the antique furniture in suites and common areas, which has been curated from the personal collection of the hotel’s founder and president, Roberto Polito.
