Trianon Palace Versailles

Live like French royalty in this luxury hotel that borders the famous gardens of Versailles.

Luxury Inspired by Marie Antoinette

Though the Trianon Palace Versailles is about thirty minutes from the center of Paris, it’s right next door to its namesake: the gilded palace of Versailles, historic home of the French monarchy. Guests staying in this glamorous space, a Waldorf Astoria hotel, can expect the very height of luxury. With its gourmet restaurants and its state-of-the-art facilities, it’s no wonder that the hotel is a member of TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame.

Let Them Eat Cake

The Trianon’s sumptuous rooms are decorated in calming violets and tangerines, and many have beautiful garden views. The hotel’s Guerlain Spa has fourteen treatment suites, hammams, and steam rooms. Not to mention the indoor heated pool inspired by classical Grecian bathhouses. There are several lauded golf courses nearby, so finding a tee-time is easy.

The hotel features not one, but two restaurants run by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. The exclusive Gordon Ramsay au Trianon has only ten tables, and La Véranda has views of the lush park surrounding Versailles. For a lighter meal or afternoon tea, guests can visit the chic Bar Galerie.
