Little Red Riding Hood and Alice walk into a hotel and… No, this is no joke. Maison Moschino is serious - albeit in an irreverent way - about design. Entering this once grand station, luminescent clouds, lamb, and gowns will greet you - a sure sign you've left ordinary back outside.
The spa is of note, as is the ironically inspired restaurant, Clandestino.Milano, serving fresh Italian fare re-imagined as sushi. But the real champions at Maison Moschino are the rooms. All 55 chambers are unique, and seem to pull the dreams of guests into the real world. A patterned and stuffed wolf waits silently in the Little Red Riding Hood room, while a giant coffee cup bends scale and reality in Alice's room. In other rooms, ball gowns become comforters, tree branches become bedposts, and flowers become sheets.
Still other rooms are themed in colors of gold and blue, and take influence from their location in the building; for example, the Luxurious Attic, complete with backlit boxes and white decorative cobweb - spider not included. With all this creativity inside, you'll need to remind yourself that some of the world's most famous works of art are just around the corner.
