Let’s get one thing straight: Uptown Palace isn’t exactly what most of us would describe as palatial. Not that that's a bad thing. This is Milan, where you’ll get your fill of neoclassical pomp from the high-fashion flagship stores in the Golden Quadrangle. When it’s time to hang it up for the night, opting for a moderately scaled-back design hotel over the old-world glitz of some grand old residence can be a refreshingly affordable change of pace. And since this is the beating heart of the fashion world, where bella figura is elevated to an art form, it’s practically against the law for boutiques like the Uptown Palace to be anything less than chic and sophisticated.
Located on the south side of central Milan, one metro stop (or a fifteen-minute walk) from the Piazza Duomo, Uptown Palace offers a relatively peaceful base of operations for business travelers and boutique shoppers alike. Its 158 guest rooms are crisp and polished in that preternaturally stylish way that’s so typical of Italian design hotels — picture the missing link between Sixties modernism and effervescent, contemporary urban cool. The basic elements are anything but novel — parquet floors, clean lines, neutral tones — but the result is so effortlessly pleasant, we have to wonder why more hotels can’t seem to get the formula quite right.
If your room begins to resemble a storage closet full of Gucci bags and Fendi boxes, it might be time to consider placing yourself under house arrest. Thankfully, you won’t go hungry; the Uptown Restaurant serves traditional Italian classics along with a few international additions. When you do venture out, the nearby Missori station enables a quick trip back into the belly of that fashionable beast.
