Set to open in 2023, Sir Rocco Forte’s eighth Italian hotel will occupy the historic address in Via della Spiga

Italy, Milan. August 05, 2020

Rocco Forte Hotels is proud to announce a new five-star hotel opening in Milan's fashionable centre. It will be the first Rocco Forte property in the Italian city and is set to welcome guests in 2023 after a full refurbishment.

Rocco Forte Hotel's Director of Design, Olga Polizzi, will collaborate with interior designers Paolo Moschino and Philip Vergeylen to recreate an authentic Milanese experience that represents the sophistication and style of this design capital. Elegant interiors and furnishings will accompany inviting and intimate spaces, combined to create a traditional, luxury Milanese hotel with elements of surprise.

The new hotel is set to offer approximately 70 rooms and suites, a restaurant and lounge bar, a full wellness centre with gym and spa topped by a rooftop panoramic bar with 360 views over the city. The ground floor will house the historical Milanese restaurant "Il Baretto" and designer retail offering a selection of the best Italian brands.

Milan is one of the world's most dynamic and design-centric destinations, a creative and vigorous city. It has always been an extremely productive centre with even greater development generated by the success of the Expo in 2015. We have great confidence in Milan's future and the many international events and visitors it welcomes every year", says Sir Rocco Forte, Founder and President of Rocco Forte Hotels. "We are thrilled to confront this extraordinary city and bring our philosophy of luxury and quality here".

Following last year's opening of Hotel de la Ville and Rocco Forte House in Rome, The Carlton Milan consolidates the fruitful collaboration with owners Reale Mutua and becomes Rocco Forte Hotels' eighth property in Italy making the group the most successful luxury operator in the country.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
