For a brief and lovely evening, I recently indulged in a last-minute staycation at London’s Millenium Bailey’s Hotel. Located opposite Gloucester Road Underground station, the Millenium Bailey is situated in one of the most accessible areas to the things I love about London; Hyde Park, the museums, and gorgeous historial streets that wind in and out of foodie hotspots like Tom’s Kitchen.
As a renovated Victorian townhouse, it is fortunate enough to maintain many of its original features (including a sweeping and photo shoot-worthy staircase) while offering every modern amenity you could possibly need. For staycation purposes, even the ‘Standard’ Rooms (ascending in price to Club Rooms and Luxury Suites) are large enough to invite a friend or two over to join in on the fun and build forts (not saying that’s what I did…ahem).
Having been built with the intention to be “not inferior to Buckingham Palace, Buckingham Gate” in a time when there were few hotels in London, Millenium Bailey’s has everything a tourist – or Londoner – could need (enormous room service breakfasts and more).
