The building that currently hosts the Lancaster Hotel, is a wonderful bourgeois residence built between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, in the typical characteristics of Liberty Milanese style.
The façade, in its perfect vertical symmetry, is the original and unaltered element that more than anything else shows the history and style of our historic Hotel.
The use of stone as a decorative element, typical of the Art Nouveau style, it can be admired on the ground floor in the beautiful gargoyles above the large windows and in all orders of the windows of the upper floors, decorated with rich gables.
The other original element, dating back to the end of the 19th century, is the staircase that connects all the floors with the precious iron handrail made entirely by hand.
The elegant building, originally a private residence, was transformed into a hotel in the late 60s.
The first owner chose the present name as a tribute to a London family, descended from the noble Lancaster family, who in the 1940s hosted him during his English past and who, in turn, they stayed in Milan in the building of Via Abbondio Sangiorgio.
Thus, was born the Lancaster Hotel.
The current logo wants to be a tribute to the history and style of the hotel, from the red rose, a symbol of the Lancaster family, to the "stem", which develops in the typical verticality of the Liberty style.
The Lancaster Hotel remains a cozy and intimate place for demanding travelers, a hotel where to find the best of modern comfort in a classical and historic environment.
