The Milestone Hotel: Bustling Butlers


A luxury family getaway shouldn’t require you to lift a finger, but at the Milestone Hotel, you’ll have to lift that precious, stressed-out finger at least once—to ring the service bell. Once you do, your work is done,  because with two staffers for every guest, your every need will be taken care of. As your car pulls up to the Victorian brownstone façade of this Kensington stunner, just sit back and relax. Within seconds, a butler sporting a top hat and tails opens your door and guides you and your family through the ornate oak-walled lobby, where in no time flat the amiable desk staff will have you checked in. Then head to your adjoining rooms—one for parents, one for kids—and watch as your children rip into the DIY sundae kit that’s waiting for them. Don’t be jealous, as you’ll have complimentary champagne to sip as you plot your next move. Need some quiet time to relax? Send the kids on a “Milestone Mini Experience,” a supervised behind-the-scenes tour to visit different departments and meet the management. At the conclusion of the tour, they’ll be given a little task to complete, which will earn them a Milestone Certificate they can be proud of. If you’d prefer to stick together, head across the street to Kensington Park, where you can take in the beautiful scenery while the kids burn off some just-arrived energy. For the ultimate touch of class, call the front desk before arranging your evening’s plans. Riding in the free Bentley chauffeur service, you may get a little too used to the high life, but for now, just enjoy the royal treatment as you take in London at its finest.
