The prestigious Milestone Hotel & Residences has unveiled two newly reimagined, sumptuous suites, following a period of elegant refurbishments to elevate its multi-award winning accommodations to new heights, and deliver some of the very best rooms in London.
The reopening of these stunning spaces marks the completion of the second stage of an intricate three-year refurbishment programme, which will see this much loved and historic 17th century hotel reborn into a stylish and chic sanctuary for 21st century travellers, and firmly establish The Milestone as the jewel in the crown of the Royal Borough of Kensington, in which the property is situated.
These unrivalled suites boast enviable locations overlooking Kensington Palace and Gardens, offering views that are every bit as impressive as their interiors. Like all sister properties within the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, The Milestone’s unique style reflects the rich history of its building and environs. The visionary design team – headed by the Collection’s President and Founder, Beatrice Tollman, and her daughter Toni Tollman – blended bespoke furnishings from master craftsmen and artisans, beautiful antiques, and carefully chosen objets d’art to create some of London’s most stylishly decorated accommodations. Married with The Milestone’s famously warm and generous service, the result is an unparalleled experience for the discerning traveller.
106 Grand Master Suite:
Striking the perfect balance between preservation and transformation, The Milestone Hotel’s Grand Master Suite blends strong mid-20th century design with the building’s historic 17th century architecture, and the result is a place of timeless elegance.
Carefully selected pieces of original period furniture harness the glamour of the room – at its centre is an iconic bronze four-poster bed, and a distinctive vintage collection of Hermès scarves is framed and carefully presented on luxurious upholstered white velvet walls.
The serenity of the design works in harmony with the grandeur of the room. Four-metre-high coffered ceilings give the sensation of endless space, and magnificent floor-to-ceiling lead doors frame the suite’s private balcony, overlooking Kensington Palace and the Gardens that surround it.
The blend of timeless design and architecture with modern comforts and the hotel’s unrivalled hospitality establishes The Milestone’s Grand Master Suite as one of the very finest hotel accommodations in London.
Heralding a new chapter in its history, master craftsmen, artisans and designers came together to transform this exceptional suite; named as a tribute to Meghan Markle. Like the Duchess of Sussex, the space seamlessly blends strength of presence with refined modern style.
The suite’s elegance is accentuated by an exquisite 18th century ebonized French bureau plat, Giacometti style chairs and original contemporary art on its walls. A large, striking black and white marble bathroom is set behind majestic bronzed mirrored double doors, and the luxury of sinking into its handmade Savoir bed, surrounded by custom-designed Indian silks, is enhanced by views through three large windows, framing an enviable vista of Kensington Palace and Gardens.
Offering all modern comforts, this unique, light-filled Master Suite is the essence of refined, royal style and supremely comfortable living.
General Manager of The Milestone Hotel & Residences, Andrew Pike, said:
“I am tremendously proud of The Milestone’s two beautiful new suites. Our hotel is a historic London landmark and provides a richly cultural backdrop for The Milestone Hotel & Residences’ elegant future. Mrs Tollman and her outstanding design team have created timeless accommodations with classic elegance – twinned with our award-winning service, we are offering the discerning traveller some of the very finest luxury accommodations in London. The launch of The Milestone’s new suites is complemented by the unveiling of six fully refurbished residences that provide the perfect home-away-from-home for business travellers, longer stay guests or families, in the heart of London’s “most desirable village”.
