TRIANON PALACE VERSAILLES, A WALDORF ASTORIA HOTEL
VER SA ILLES, FR A N CE
N E I G H B O R H O O D Majestic Château de Versailles
Next to the Château de Versailles, the Trianon Palace Versailles - the first Waldorf Astoria
Hotels & Resorts property in France - is steeped in aristocratic lore. The Treaty of Versailles
was drafted in its gilded Salon Clemenceau. A sparkling redesign has brought forth an elegantly subdued color palette with brilliant bursts of purple, gold and apple green that accent the
checkerboard marble floors and crystal chandeliers. Phenom Gordon Ramsay heads his Michelin-star namesake restaurant, his first in France. There's a Guerlain Spa with a Grecian-style indoor pool, and Louis XIV's château lies just beyond the wooded parkland.
