The Milestone reportedly sells more Champagne per guest than any place in London, so it’s not surprising that a jovial mood pervades this quintessentially British property, which dates to the 19th century and once housed a military academy. Occupying two buildings, the hotel has sixty-two lavishly furnished rooms, including six long-stay suites, some with remarkable views of Kensington Palace and its gardens. Thoughtful details abound, such as sweet treats, fresh fruit and books of poetry placed in guests’ rooms each night. The hotel restaurant, Cheneston’s (reflecting an early spelling of Kensington), serves modern British fare in an intimate setting; for special occasions, guests can order private dinners in the Oratory, originally a chapel, and a romantic turn-down service.
