Travel Tips: Mike Owens in London
March 21, 2019

Mike Owens, our director of client development, worked with Tina Woolbright in our leisure office and  just returned from his tenth anniversary trip to London. The couple stayed at The Milestone Hotel and Residences and had an amazing time and even spotted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their trip! Here’s what Mike had to say:
“My wife and I just returned from an early 10th anniversary trip to London. With assistance from the Maupin Travel Vacation Team, we were fortunate enough to stay at the Milestone Hotel and Residences. It was hands-down, the best overall hotel experience that we have ever had. Every detail of our stay was handled with professionalism, luxury and ease. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance by the hotel’s butler, Fran, each employee knew us by name and treated us like family. The hotel itself is beautiful and sits directly across from Kensington Palace and its gardens. We had an incredible on-site dinner at the hotel restaurant, Cheneston’s Restaurant. Each night wasn’t complete without a nightcap at Stables, the intimate lounge with the best Old Fashioned in the city. For those looking for an English Tradition, there is an Afternoon Tea held every day. The Milestone is an easy 5 minute walk to the tube station, which can take you anywhere in London. It was our first trip to London, so the concierge team went above and beyond to help us navigate the city.

With all that said, what truly sets the hotel apart is the people who work there. I can’t even begin to list them all, but we left London with a whole new set of friends. My wife and I would highly recommend The Milestone to anyone traveling to London. When we go back, I wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else.”
