IHG opens a voco Hotel in Milan

IHG has announced the opening of voco Milan-Fiere, the first voco property in Italy. The hotel is a short distance from the Spanish capital’s main airports, Linate and Malpensa, has great access to Milan city centre, and some of Milan’s key business hubs including the Milano Innovation District (MIND), the Milan Exhibition Center and Milano Convention Centre (MiCo).

As is the norm at all voco Hotels, guests will be greeted with a unique welcome treat, with a delicious homemade Saronno Biscuit being the unique welcome treat at voco Milan-Fiere. Made of flour, butter, sugar and almond essence, the welcome treat represents the famous Italian Amaretto liqueur that originated from Saronno, an area near Milan.

voco Milan-Fiere features 280 guest rooms and suites, each with a sleek and modern design embodying the voco brand’s bold, contemporary, and charming style. The interior design plays on alternating shades of grey and blue, variations of the voco brand colours, combined with bright and warm pops of yellow, through decorative elements such as soft furnishings to give voco its distinct identity. The use of greenery and natural wood characterize the hotel’s public areas and ‘play a fundamental role in creating a dialogue between the interior and exterior’.
