The Milestone is an uber classic luxury boutique hotel set on a couple of 19th Century listed Victorian townhouses overlooking Hyde Park and Kensington Palace in the fashionable Kensington/Chelsea district. Each of its 56 guestrooms is beautifully decorated with a blend of vintage furniture and modern entertainment apparatus. Terraces gardens, fireplaces, four-poster beds and freestanding baths are features in some of the rooms; the Safari and Buckingham suites are especially over-the-top. Additionally, Champagne, Green Tea or Sherry on arrival along comfortable bathrobes, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet, designer toiletries, and Bentley car service for guest transfer and shopping are standard treats to all guests. The property lacks spa, but offers good treatment and sauna rooms, a small swimming pool along with a fully equipped gym. An impressive wine collection including more than 400 vintages coupled with a good selection of modern British flavors can be enjoyed at its fine Cheneston’s Restaurant. Both, the trendy Conservatory and the classic Stables Bar are good spots for pre-theater drinks and/or small bites, and Park Lounge with its open fireplace and armchairs is one of the nicest spaces for traditional afternoon tea in town. The hotel also arranges perfect picnic and/or Afternoon Tea at the Hyde Park on order. The experience is superb, the service from receptionists to mixologists is especially remarkable, and prices are set accordingly.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

A really old-school luxury hotel, the Milestone has great service, lovely rooms, and a location just off Kensington High Street. The service is almost over the top attentive (the butler offered to unpack my suitcase). Being a bit of a closet product junkie, I really appreciate the fact that they have Penhaligon's toiletries, as well.
