Trianon Palace Versailles Review

A modern-day Versailles, this deluxe hotel is in a turn-of-the-20th-century, creamy white creation of imposing size, filled with soaring rooms (including the historic Salle Clemenceau, site of the 1919 Versailles Peace Conference), palatial columns, and with a huge garden close to the château park. Once faded, the hotel, now part of the Waldorf-Astoria chain, is aglitter once again with a health club (the pool idles beneath a glass pyramid), Guerlain spa, and a refurbished 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 the luxury restaurant here (along with a 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 (ask for one of the even-number rooms, which look out over the woods near the Trianons; odd-number rooms overlook the modern annex).
