Fodor's Review

Like a modern-day Versailles, this deluxe turn-of-the-20th-century hotel is a creamy white creation of imposing size, filled with soaring rooms (including the historic Salle Clemenceau, site of the 1919 Versailles Peace Conference). Now part of the Waldorf-Astoria brand, the once faded “palace” is aglitter again with a health club (the pool is poised beneath a glass pyramid), a Guerlain spa, and a lobby glammed up with Murano chandeliers and high-back, green-leather

armchairs. The hotel headliner these days is famed, foul-mouthed, super-chef Gordon Ramsay, who has remade both its posh restaurant and more casual eatery with a big splash. As for the guest rooms, try to avoid the newer annex (the Pavillon Trianon), and insist on the full treatment in the main building. Request one of the even-number rooms, which look out over the woods near the Trianons.

Incredibly luxurious!

My daughter and I were amazed by the way we were treated. The concierge made our sedan arrangements to the airport. Room service always arrived sooner than promised and the food was so tasty. And the room! We were given a Deluxe Palace Room that overlooked a beautiful park and a pasture full of sheep. By European standards, the room was huge and so comfortable. We will never forget our time in Versailles and the wonderful staff at the Westin Trianon

A Tired Old Grande Dame That's Seen Better Days

Everything about our stay at Westin's Trianon Palace hotel was disappointing. The service was terrible with the staff being pompus and rude. Be careful because this hotel has a reputation for not honoring room rates that you book and pre-pay. About the only thing still going for this hotel is its location, but its still a long walk uphill to the Palace at Versailles. You would be better off booking at the Sofitel which has better service and pricing

as well as being right accross the square from the Palace.

Dont Stay In The Annex!!!

We stayed here in June, 2003 on our honeymoon. I was attracted to the history of the hotel and made reservations via a discount web site. At the time, I did not realize that we had been placed in the Pavilon, which is a late 20th century building across a courtyard from the real hotel and the unfriendly staff refused to move us or do anything to make us happy. The room was also extremely substandard for this price range ($300+). Basically, the

Pavilon has all the charm of a parking garage but with outrageous prices too. It was in short a complete rip off - the one blemish on an otherwise great 2 week trip. If you plan on staying here, as Fodors warns, INSIST on the original hotel building or, better yet, stay in Paris and day trip to Versailles.
