Having recently stayed at the Milestone, I have to say this was the best experience ever. From the minute I stepped out of my taxi and was greeted by the very sweet doorman, who whisked my bags away, and handed me over to the lovely reception staff..I knew this was going to be an amazing experience. Upon checking in, I was informed that I had been upgraded to a beautiful master suite, the Prince Albert suite. It was quite funny that this was the suite I was assigned, because I had expressed to my family that this was my favorite on the website. So, I was extremely delighted. Fran, the butler, took me on a tour of the beautiful Cheneston restaurant, the Stables Bar, the Conservatory and the lovely parlor, where they serve a delicious tea. He then took me up to my suite, which was even more beautiful in person. I then went down and had tea, where when expressed my doubt about finishing it, the lovely servers boxed up what couldn't eat and told me to not worry it would be delivered to my room. The rest of my week was equally wonderful, from the extremely nice room service staff who made sure I was well supplied with tasty nibbles and delicious late night meals. The maid staff who, when I asked for a couple more Assam tea bags, brought me an entire box. The concierges who kept me well informed on what was happening, and how best to get there. To the reception staff, who kept me well supplied with water and very kindly laughed at my nutty stories. A very big thank you to Nick for doing his best to try to get my DVD player to work(actually it beat us both) but he did give it his all. I can't recommend this magnificent hotel enough. In fact, my family is rolling their eyes at me, because I've already started planning my next trip here.
