As one of the oldest existing hotels in London, the Millennium Bailey's Hotel London Kensington boasts a fascinating history, which dates back to 1876 and includes the remarkable achievement of its original owner, the Right Honourable Sir James Bailey. It is the story of how the hotel survived two world wars and changes in ownership. Amazingly, so many decades and eras later, the hotel maintains much of its original structure. The hall is virtually the same as in 1876, with its imposing marble pillars, grand staircase, stained glass windows and sumptuous Victorian décor. Millennium Bailey's Hotel London Kensington was very modern for the time in which it was built. In 1885, the advertisements bragged of an "ascending room" (a lift), a "safe room" (a safe) and bathrooms on every floor, all very unusual at the time. The hotel has welcomed many prominent guests, including the American author F.B. Harte and the Austrian composer Eduard Strauss, who stayed at the hotel in 1885, as well as members of the British and Dutch Royal families. An integral part of the Kensington area, the hotel was founded on the ambition of being 'not inferior to Buckingham Palace'.
