Iconic hotel where history, elegance and contemporary touches melt together, the Trianon Palace is set along the gardens of the Versailles Palace. The Palace of Versailles (also known as the Château de Versailles or Versailles Castle) is one of the most visited tourist sites in France. It used to be the Royal Castle of Louis XIV, the Roi Soleil.
The Trianon Palace Versailles opened its doors the First May of 1910 from the project of M. Weill Martignan who aimed to build a luxury hotel in Versailles. Until the First World War, the place used to be the theater of prestigious receptions and stays. The High Society was attracted by both royal and bucolic environment of the place. The Grand Salon of Reception, which would be renamed as Salon Clémenceau, is the witness of the splendor of that time with its crystal chandeliers and molding covered with gold leaves.
During the first major conflict, the Trianon was requisitioned as an additional hospital and then became the headquarters of the Inter-allies Basis. It’s here, between those walls, that the conditions of the famous Treaty of Versailles were dictated the 7th May 1919 a few days before its official signature in the Gallery of the Versailles Palace.
During the Second World War the hotel hosted the Royal Air Force, the Luftwaffe and the American Forces.
In 1946, the Trianon Palace regained its former splendor when re-welcoming prestigious customers such as Marlène Dietrich, Paul Getty, Elizabeth II Queen of England, Jacques Brel, Jean Gabin or Jeanne Moreau.
The Trianon Palace belongs today to the prestigious Waldorf Astoria Collection of the Hilton hotel group. The hotel is composed of 199 rooms and suites spread over the Historic building and the Pavillon constructed in the 2000’s. Guest rooms combines comfort and modernity with Royal and Belle Epoque details. Some of the guest rooms and suites offer splendid views over the Versailles Castle park and the Petit Trianon of Marie Antoinette. The most luxurious of them, the Versailles Suite, features 150 sqm (1,614 sqft) of contemporary refinement surrounded by period moldings and woodwork.
