"The Armani brand holds itself and its partners to the highest standards, as does Virtuoso. The two brands together represent the finest offerings and service for discerning travelers. As with the first Armani property, we are sure there will be much success through this relationship and that Virtuoso's clientele will benefit from the special access and advantages they receive when staying at the Armani Hotel Milano."
Virtuoso's renowned Hotels & Resorts Program, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, includes more than 900 of the world's best properties, which are vetted by the network's advisors. An extension of the Hotels & Resorts Program, Virtuoso's Preview hotels are each carefully selected prior to opening and invited to take part in a one-year relationship whereby Virtuoso is the only travel agency partner. As a result, clients of Virtuoso members receive unique benefits and offers not available anywhere else in the market.
