Trianon Palace & Spa – Versailles

Posted on 17 June 2009

Built in 1909 by the architect René Sergent, best known for designing the Plaza Athénée in Paris, the legendary Trianon Palace & Spa was built on the site of an old convent. Situated at the end of the avenues in the royal gardens of Versailles, it quickly became the favorite holiday destination for Parisian high society. The beauty and elegance of the palace and its legendary gardens attracted the literary world including Marcel Proust, Sarah Bernhardt and René Lacoste. Other notable guests included The Duke and Duchess of Windsor who spent their honeymoon at the Trianon Palace & Spa, and Sacha Guitry who stayed there with Yvonne Printemps during the filming of “Si Versailles m’était conté” (Tales of Versailles).

Nestled in the heart of the town of Versailles, on the edge of the Château grounds, the Trianon Palace & Spa is located across from the famous Château de Versailles in the town’s historic district. It is also close to the some of the region’s most prestigious golf courses and is less than 30 minutes from Paris.

The legendary hotel has recently completed an overall refurbishment and transformation which includes guest rooms, public spaces and restaurants, spa, and gardens. Noted interior designer Fiona Thompson has overseen the renovation of the 199-room property, located just steps away from the famed Chateau de Versailles, while landscape designer Louis Benech has restored the hotel’s famed gardens.

This first part of the Trianon Palace’s transformation was completed in September 2007, including the 100 rooms and 23 suites in the Palace wing, and pays tribute to the existing historical architecture while incorporating a new level of sophistication, refinement and modernity. The 99 rooms located in the Pavillion wing (which had remained open for guests during the Palace room renovations), along with a fully-refurbished spa by Guerlain.
