Until the end of 1999 the building from the XIX. Century was used as the Custom’s House of Locarno. In the year 2000 the building was completely renovated and converted into a Garni Hotel, therefore the name MILLENNIUM. Hotel Garni means Hotel with breakfast.

From 2003 until 2007 the hotel was directed by Nicolas Gilliet, the Art Jazz Festival Director of Ascona and the hotel was known as the Jazz Hotel Locarno. All rooms were dedicated to Jazz musicians.

From 2007 until January 2018 the hotel was managed by Sonja Frey.

In February 2018 the hotel was taken over by André Himmelsbach. It was fully renovated and newly furnished by keeping the traditional room style. André Himmelsbach is the director of the hotel and runs it lovingly with his wife Andrea Himmelsbach.
