The urban retreat reopens and everything is new
April 1st is the date that marks the new course of Quark Hotel Milano. After a complete restyling that lasted over 2 years, the hotel reopens with a completely new look that embraces the most contemporary trends in hospitality. The project was managed by Aries Group, the Italian hotel management company which, in addition to the Quark Hotel Milano, has in its portfolio Hotel Villa Pamphili Rome, Living Place Hotel Bologna, Ripamonti Residence and Hotel Milano for a total of 1,640 rooms. “Urban refuge”: this is the definition that best clarifies the concept of hospitality of the new Quark Hotel Milano. In fact, the 4-star hotel breaks away from the canonical schemes of business and Mice hotels to become a hotel with a dual soul, where you can work, of course, but also live experiences. And the location is also unconventional. Close to the center (the Duomo is only 4 kilometers away) but in the heart of the Vigentino district, a winning example of urban regeneration already married by Fondazione Prada and Armani Silos.
A signed restyling
The interior design of the new Quark Hotel Milano is signed by the CaberlonCaroppi architecture studio. Style? A fresh and urban chic design, made of geometries, warm color palettes and natural materials that unites the 283 rooms, all generously sized and mostly suites, and the housing solutions for long stays. In fact, the fifth floor of the building, the Studio’s Floor, in addition to 3 different types of rooms, also offers co-living and co-working areas and services dedicated to long stays. The peculiar style chosen for the interior design continues in the common areas and in those for the restaurant, entrusted to the starred chef Andrea Ribaldone. Here then is the soft casual dining restaurant, a hall for events and a lobby bar with a grab&go corner. Common trait of the proposals? Italianity and seasonality.
Big spaces for Mice
An element that makes the Quark Hotel Milano a location destined to be a point of reference for event managers is its congress centre, one of the largest hosted in hotels in the Lombard capital. Arranged over 3 levels for a total area of 6,200 square meters, the Mice heart of the hotel offers event and congress organizers 42 meeting rooms, including 2 plenary rooms of 800 and 1,450 square meters, the latter capable of hosting over 1,500 delegates. For a perfect stay there are also: gym, shuttle service, outdoor parking for 700 cars and garage for 200.
