Emily Jablon:  Daraius and I went to Europe in September to celebrate our 2nd anniversary for ~2 weeks.  It was my first time in Italy so I was very excited!  In Italy, we visited Varenna on Lake Como, Milan, Venice, and Rome.

Since we were in Europe, we visited a friend in Strasbourg, France and also spent a night in Zurich.  We started our trip with a one day layover in Chicago to see friends!

Our Anniversary To Italy – Trip Report Index:

How You Can Do It too!

1.   Hyatt Credit Card

You get 2 free nights valid at any Hyatt hotel once you complete the minimum spending on the Hyatt credit card.  You can use these free nights at ANY Hyatt hotel in the world.

You have to call Hyatt to book these free nights.  You can book a room as long as the hotel has standard rooms available for booking at Hyatt.com.  So you can check availability for yourself before calling Hyatt.

2.   Ultimate Rewards Points

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points from the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold & Ink Plus transfer in a 1:1 ratio to Hyatt hotels.

You can also transfer your Ultimate Rewards points from the Chase Freedom to the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold or Ink Plus.  And from there to Hyatt hotel points.

It costs 30,000 Hyatt points for 1 night at the Park Hyatt in Milan since this is a top category 7 Hyatt hotel.  Or you could pay 15,000 Hyatt points and $300 for 1 night using the Points & Cash option.

You can book a standard room using your points at Hyatt.com.

Park Hyatt, Milan

We took the train from Varenna to Milan.  You can’t buy train tickets at the small train station in Varenna.  But you can buy them at the bar in the town square!

Before you get on the train, don’t forget to validate your ticket by inserting them in the machines on the platform!

It was only an hour trip from Varenna to Milan, and we were in Milan before we knew it!

The Outside of the Milan Train Station

There were lots of taxis outside of the Milan train station, so we got into a taxi because we had a lot of luggage.

The taxi fares were posted on the window of the taxi.

We arrived at the Park Hyatt in about 15 minutes.

The Park Hyatt’s location is excellent, as the hotel is near most of the tourist sites and the main shopping streets in Milan.

The Park Hyatt Milan is Centrally Located

The Duomo di Milano (Milan Cathedral) was less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel!

The hotel concierge gave us a map that listed all the interesting sites nearby and circled the location of the hotel on the map in red.

We walked to our room, and I immediately noticed the high ceilings and the mirrors.

Here’s a video of our room.

There are mirrors in each room to give it the added drama and effect.

There were also romantic, glass lights placed throughout the rooms to add warmth and luxury.

I loved everything about the room and it’s the nicest Park Hyatt we have stayed in.  To me, the Park Hyatt Milan was nicer than the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris where he had our honeymoon!

  1. Beautiful hotel!! I spent my Hyatt nights at French Quarter New Orleans 2 weeks ago. Just got back from the Bahamas. To UK in March. All solo trips. I want to go to Milan too.
    By the way, Emily looks gorgeous!

  2. Looks like a wonderful & beautiful hotel, and would be a great use of the free night certs. for the Hyatt card. The bathroom reminds me greatly of the room I had at the Shelbourne (Marriott) in Dublin, Ireland, but bigger with the dual sinks. Thanks for sharing the trip report and the great photos.

    P.S. Those cab prices involving the airports are insane! There are budget airfares lower than that, by far. Hopefully they weren’t that bad for the train station.

  3. @Scott: The cost of a train ticket between Milano Centrale and the airport is EUR 10 each way. The train takes about 45 minutes to an hour, though be careful as some scheduled trips go only part way and involve a bus transfer.

  4. Was that a suite or a base room? Were you upgraded due to status?

  5. OMG! What room number were you in. This looks just like my parent’s room when we went for my Dad’s birthday. I stayed in the adjoining room. PH Milan went above and beyond. I love that place. And would actually consider spending money to stay there (gasp).

  37. We will be going to the Park Hyatt in Sept. Was there any thought given to taking the metro (or whatever it’s called) from the train station to the stop right by the hotel?

  38. OK Thanks…
    About how much was the taxi?

  39. Hi, so my husband and I signed up for the Hyatt credit card last year and got two free nights. We finally decided to use them at Park Hyatt, Milan next month (May 20-22), but when I called to book them this week (6 weeks prior to my trip), I was told that all the available free night rooms were already booked. I was very disappointed. 🙁 I’m going to keep checking the availability in case of cancellation, but just wonder if you know anything else that I can try?? Thanks!

  40. Suzzanne Dempsey

    Thank you, thank you for your trip report. Love the video. Emily seems like a sweet young woman. I used 30K UR points for our stay in Sept. Without your blog I wouldn’t have found it.


  41. @Patrick
    100€ from the airport(MXP) and 10-15€ from Centrale depends on the traffic. Stayed a month ago.

  42. We ended up taking the train from Centrale to the “Doumo” stop. Pretty easy (and cheap) actually.
