Afternoon Tea at London’s Milestone Hotel and Residences
By Mary Noe

You’ll be treated like royalty at London’s award-winning Milestone Hotel and Residences, where “no request is too large, no detail too small.” A member of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection and a Leading Hotel of the World, this top luxury hotel in the UK offers exceptional service, including 24-hour butler service and two staff to every guest.

Elegant without being stuffy, the Milestone is classic yet current. The recently renovated property offers an ideal location opposite Kensington Palace and Gardens, the future home of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the current residence of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Consistently garnering the top “World’s Best” awards from Travel + Leisure, U.S. News & World Report, and TripAdvisor, this five-star boutique hotel welcomes discerning business and leisure travelers, as well as families.

The hotel’s friendly staff members are “loyal and treasured” and will ensure that your Milestone experience is truly memorable. Their attention to detail extends from the individually designed deluxe guest rooms, luxurious suites and long-stay residences to the dining experiences as well. Enjoy cocktails in the Stables Bar or the Conservatory, and fine dining in Cheneston’s Restaurant. Or indulge in a delicious British tradition and Milestone favorite, afternoon tea in the Park Lounge.
