The Dorchester Collection

Ciao, cari! We travel next to the iconic cities of Milan and Rome to visit Dorchester Collection's beautiful Hotel Eden (Rome) and Hotel Principe di Savoia (Milan).

Real-Time Retreats - Italy By Design - Dorchester Collection Hotel Eden & Hotel Principe di Savoia

Since we’re visiting Italy and the fashion and design mecca of the world, we want you to break out your most fashionable labels, and take it to the hilt! Italian design is legendary, so make your outfit the same! Will you gladly wear Gucci? Feel proud of your Pucci or Prada? Or are you feeling very Versace? Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Missoni, Moschino... the list goes on. Or if labels aren’t your thing, we get it. Put together your own style, and kick labels to the curb! But whatever you do, take your style the extra mile.

As as added bonus, each week we’ll be rewarding the planner who goes ‘all-in’ on the theme with goodies from Maui Jim. So engage, be creative, and have fun!

Hotel Eden

An authentic Roman spirit infuses this radiant hotel, alive with the stories of a legendary city and the hospitality of its remarkable people. Twice a month they welcome fashion illustrator Andrea Ferolla as their first artist in residence, who captures the hotel’s unique spirit through a series of thoughtful observational drawings.

Hotel Eden rooftop view


From the Hotel Eden rooftop terrace, you can venture through the Roman streets, gaze at St. Peter’s cathedral and admire a glorious sunset – all without leaving the hotel. This is the ultimate viewpoint, with Rome’s entire panorama here for your viewing pleasure.

Whether served in their rooftop restaurants or enjoyed in your room, Fabio Ciervo’s innovative Italian cuisine is always something to savor. Fresh flavors, seasonal ingredients and creative combinations await.

Hotel Eden Aurora Terrace Suite


From board room to ballroom, generations have met, celebrated, and networked in these beautiful spaces, and have been looked after with refined but personable care and attention to detail. Every ballroom has a private foyer that creates an inviting space of it own and can be decorated in any way you’d like.

Hotel Eden Sala Boghese meeting room


Their impressive boardrooms speak of smart design and quiet elegance. High ceilings, natural daylight and dramatic color deliver graceful, Roman charm, where technology of the highest specification awaits.


Aperol spritz cocktails are unbelievably easy to make. No cocktail shaker or fancy equipment required!

You’ll simply fill a wine glass with ice, then add Aperol, Prosecco, club soda to taste, and garnish with a slice of orange.

Make it less bitter

Aperol’s bitter notes can take some getting used to, so you can reduce the bitterness by using less Aperol and more Prosecco.

Make it less boozy

To make it even lower in alcohol content, use proportionally more club soda and less Aperol and Prosecco.

More stunning views from a rooftop perch! From the hotel rooftop terrace you can enjoy vast panoramic views taking in both old and new Milan. The gleaming Porta Nuova district sparkles right in front of you with the Unicredit Tower by Cesar Pelli, while in the distance you can spot the Generali Tower by Zaha Hadid and Allianz Tower by Arata Isozaki.

Which iconic fashion designer are you? Take the quiz to find out.

Vespa Cover GirlLearn about the history of the Vespa scooter, or pick out your own. Or if you’re doing better than we are in 2020, pick out your Ferrari.

Pizza crust style, just so you know. Neapolitan pizza-making is so unique it’s been recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage. Meanwhile, Romans make their pizza flat and crispy, Sicilians go thick and fluffy, and Apulians fry small pockets of dough known as panzerotti.
