Milestone Hotel, Luxury In London

Located within walking distance of one the most recognizable residences in the world is the luxurious Milestone Hotel. This elegant five-star hotel overlooks Kensington Palace and Gardens, and while you most likely won’t be taking tea with Her Majesty, you can spend time living like Royalty in the midst of romantic elegance. This one of a kind historical property, built in 1689 by Foot Onslow, was completely replaced in 1768 before being transformed into a modern day castle of cozier proportions. Each guest room at The Milestone is a work of art – “a grand statement of color and style” – complete with fresh flowers, antique furnishings, and rare artworks. An experience unparalleled for the inveterate traveler with discriminating tastes…

Recently, two luxurious Junior Suites at the five-star Milestone Hotel were unveiled, the Buckingham Suite and Princess suite. A high-standard of design detail evident in the custom furnishings, new hand-picked antiques, and original artwork. Each room in the entire hotel boasts it’s own unique design, but it was Toni Tollman, daughter of owner Beatrice, that spearheaded the stunning refurbishment of the Junior Suites.

Infused with rich shades of red, gold and cream, the redesigned “Princess Suite” includes a lounge area and private balcony that overlooks the quiet side streets of Kensington. The fixtures, fittings, and furnishings have been individually selected, such as the bed’s custom-designed headboard upholstered in Kai cranberry velvet and the handmade lampshades from Greco Angela Rosa in Venice. The walls are adorned with a collection of Miró lithographs and a striking mirror acquired from an auction house. The lounge is complete with a custom-designed Northcroft velvet sofa bed and antique chairs upholstered in a delicious array of Pierre Frey fabrics.

The Buckingham Suite is enveloped in a refined mixture of gold, brown, blue and white, with silk upholstered walls. The “crown jewel” is the tailor-made king-sized bed complete with a brown leather headboard and antique gilt finish, Other striking additions are a pair of antique chairs upholstered in Brunschwig & Fils fabric and a custom-designed high-backed corner sofa bed overlooking Kensington rooftops.
For this seasoned traveler, the design of a hotel has always been as important as the amenities, and a stay at this fabulously appointed hotel is worth its weight in gold (or pounds).
