Trianon Palace Versailles, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
Just far enough away from Paris
My wife and I stayed at the Trianon Palace for Easter 2012. Overall a wonderful hotel with a couple of very good restaurants (both in the Gordon Ramsey line). It is a decent walk from the Metro so you'll want to take a taxi if you have luggage or the weather is inclement.
To me, this place was perfect to get out of the hustle and bustle of Paris while still being close enough (45 minutes on the Metro) to allow you to get into the city very quickly to see the sites.
Unique Quality: Located within the grounds of the Versailles Palace sets the Trianon Palace apart from almost all other hotels out there...
Now part of Hilton's Waldorf-Astoria Collection of hotels, this is a small but very refined hotel. It is definitely a hotel for a splurge. It is very convenient for visiting the Palace, one entrance to the Gardens is a half block away.
The new Pavillion, connected to the original wing by a tunnel and ground-level walkway, just doesn't exude the same ambiance and charm.
Within the hotel are a Gordon Ramsey restaurant and a Guerlain Spa, both quite pricey, as could be expected.
Directions: On the Northern edge of Versailles
Next door to the Chateau
We stayed 4 nights in a "classic guest room" at $227.89 per night by booking through American Express. Our room wasn't in the main building but in the annex facing it. Didn't really matter since we were only interested in a comfortable room within easy walking distance to the Chateau de Versailles. Decent size room with a comfortable bed and all necessary amenities.
The concierge was helpful and friendly. Internet connection was a little over-priced at 25 euros for 24 hours.
The service was 5* especially from the concierge, they were very informative, knew about the local area and transport services in to Paris.Gave us Timetables for the local train stations, which was faster.The normal train to Paris was off for the time we were there and took us 3 hours to get to Versailles, then 40 mins to get back to Paris from the droite station.
The Spa was lovely, people were sun bathing on the veranda as well as being able to use the pool inside, which was large and very clean. Foot bags were to be used if you enter certain areas to keep the floor clean. pool was large so able to get some exercise.Didn't try the spa treatments as we spent most of our time away.After checking out, we asked if we could use the spa and changing areas as our flight wasn't until later that evening and it was very hot, was not a problem.
Room was in the new wing, was very spacoius and decorated very nice, art deco style.vey grand.
Breakfast room was lovely and everything you could dream of for breakfast all nicely laid out, will definetly return.
Unique Quality: Fabulous views of the gardens,very well maintained, inside and out the buildings.
Beautiful decor, subtle and very relaxing in Art Deco style, lavish and flamboyant with all the modern amenities at hand.
Charming palace, felt like a princess staying there.
Was a Anniversary gift, it was so beautiful, will definetly go back, but next time will spend more time around the hotel.
Directions: Come out of the droite station turn left, then right and it's straight down the avenue on the right, ten euro's in a taxi.
A Royal Retreat
Nice architecture, elegantly decorated, one feels like royalty. It's ideal for a getaway from Paris, you can relax in the garden or treat yourself to the spa. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
Directions: Walking distance (10 mins) from the RER C Rive Gauche station
The best hotel in Versailles
Trianon Palace is one of the best in France. The building looks like a part of Versailles Palace. But the interior has somewhat modern element with basically classic building. The maintenance of the hotel is perfect. Our room was very spacious. I could see the sheep eating glass in the garden over my room window. Our room have a large bathroom, which is basically white. It was very clean.
We took dinner after swimming. The French served to us was something like what we are not familiar. It was very heavy and thick taste. In my opinion, that was very old style French dishes. This hotel has two-star restaurant. We are sure we will eat there next time.
Unique Quality: My husband likes swimming, so he wanted to swim in the hotel pool which we heard very gorgeous. It was odds my husband had to wear bathrobe from our room. He walked the hall way wearing bathrobe then took elevator to reach the pool on the basement. It was a little embarrassing. But the pool was amazing. It is shaped streamline and is very big. The several white pillars sustain the balcony on the grand floor. You must swim in this pool when you stay in this hotel.
