With the help of dynamic management and highly motivated staff, the structure offers spaces suitable for events of any kind as well as unmissable food experiences
Codeword: dynamism. Here is the main secret of a great structure strategically situated inside Terminal 1 of Malpensa international airport, with direct access from the airport and from Malpensa Express. At the same time, the Hotel is within a stone’s throw of the new Exhibition Complex located in Rho and only 30 minutes away from Milan city centre. All in all, it is a structure that has managed to become something more than a comfortable and handy airport accommodation for leisure and business travelers.
Flexibility and passion make the difference
Keystone is the strength and enthusiasm of a young and tight-knit team together with a Hotel Manager, MS Giovanna Caspanello, always at the forefront to ensure that everything exceed customer expectations. All of this is accompanied by delicate feminine touch shining through a pinpoint attention to details and an extremely discreet and personalized service. Thanks to wise management of impressive spaces, the hotel lends itself to the most diverse events with extreme flexibility, thus becoming a preferential and lively venue for all sorts of events. Let’s analyze some numbers, now: the facility offers 433 perfectly soundproof rooms of different types arranged across three floors, from Classic rooms to Suites of various sizes, including a Club Lounge of 200 sqm with a Club Boardroom that can be set up for holding meetings.
Besides, thanks to its location within the airport, the Hotel’s daily booking rates are very high and extremely challenging due to a further massive presence of corporate members and airport crews that consider this facility almost as their second home. The Hotel has also a 400 sqm crew lounge which offers all kinds of amenities a crew may need, from kitchens to laundry rooms, from meeting to relax rooms.
More than 2000 square metres to be used for meetings and events
Sheraton Milan Malpensa Airport Hotel has a Conference Centre of over 2,000 square metres. All rooms are distributed on one level, including a 1000 sqm multi-functional main hall that can be divided into 8 perfectly soundproof sections. Interestingly, with its ceilings up to 6 metres high, in such a venue it is possible to organize any kind of event and performance. In addition, there are also 22 meeting rooms which can host from 4 to 350 people. The selection of spaces that can be customized for coffee breaks and exhibitions spans both the Lobby area and the Foyer and it climbs all the way up to the third floor. Therefore, all kinds of events can be organized in this versatile structure with utmost dynamism and flexibility for the sake of which the hotel can be actively reshaped according to the customer’s needs. «We’ve hosted», says Giovanna Caspanello, «a very different range of happenings from cake design workshops to the UniExpo fair, using every single corner of the hotel, as well as the World Dance Championship, not to mention fixed appointments with motivators and consultants, or even events related to the world of food, one for all, Chef Cannavacciuolo who presented here one of his motivational events. Our strength is definitely a young and motivated team made of young people and professionals who were with us when the hotel was inaugurated almost six years ago and who are still working here with great enthusiasm: a passion that can be almost seen and pleasantly felt by our customers».
Sheraton Milan Malpensa Hotel is also a great springboard for those who wish to work abroad, insomuch as the Management encourages its members’ professional growth, thus testing itself on different levels.

New formulae for experiencing food
Another plus, which is none other than a further load-bearing structure characterizing the Hotel hospitality, is represented by the kitchen staff captained by the Executive Chef Pasquale D’Ambrosio, an eclectic Neapolitan whose enthusiasm and creativity fill every dish that, thanks to his fondness for art and theatre, end up becoming almost a culinary work of art. Last autumn it was launched a new concept of food offer, the Sheraton Paired: an innovative brand proposal that has enriched the bar menu with titbits and small plates combined with wine and craft beers.
Sheraton Paired wants to broaden its horizons in terms of food- and wine-pairings and shake them up in new and unexpected ways so to offer unique experiences to its guests. Experiences that can be enjoyed both at the Monterosa Bar and at the restaurant Il Canneto with its Wine Tower, a glass tower more than 6 metres high hosting a unique selection of extraordinary wines from around the world. Here the guest can try the Quick Taste, an express lunch which offers a choice of main course or pizza, precisely, six classic Italian pastas and four tasty pizzas, and, last but not least, a large salad buffet. Besides, starting from May the Lobby will propose the best Italian street-food dishes typical of each region. Finally, those who do not want to miss a wellness-break can indulge in the Shine Spa, a 1000 sqm fitness & spa area equipped with a pool, made available even to customers who prefer the day-use formula.
