... where we see a flood of humanity across the courtyard as we approach...the price you pay for sleeping in. At the entrance into the palace we are informed that you cannot take strollers into the palace, nor snacks, nor much of anything regardless of the age of your child or pregnancy status. Yet, somehow wheelchairs are allowed...which makes us seriously consider renting a wheelchair for Heather and Maclaren to ride in. Up 1 flight of stairs and into the ...
... all was. There were large square gardens all with different themes. There were about 20 of them, and as it was a Tuesday, most of the fountains were on for part of the day. Their favourite was a simple fountain with no statues in it that made shapes out of water like fireworks in time to music. There were too many fabulous things to describe but they had a delightful morning walking miles through the gardens.
At midday another part of the gardens opens ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Trianon Palace Versailles, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
We were a little disappointed with LES TROIS MARCHES. We went there for Lunch on February 11, 2005. We were offered a menu which had a choice of a 180 euro tasting menu, a 160 euro three course menu or ala carte. No lunch menu was offered. We were a bit surprised, but had been looking forward to the restaurant so we opted for the 160 euro three course menu.
Nice hotel but not 5 star
We stayed in a standard room in the Palace. The room was small but the bathroom was lovely (#502). Hotel staff were very nice but the hotel just does not live up to it's reputation.
Our room was too hot even after turning off the heating and opening all the windows. Breakfast was only average and the charge of 27 Euro pp a little of a cheek.
We left a little disapointed and would think twice about going back.
Pavillion is not worth the 400 or so per night
I stayed here at a deeply discounted price with a employee hot rate, thinking that it would be beautiful like pictured on the website. I debated for a long time about being such a commute into Paris, but couldn't pass up staying at a 400+/night hotel for less than 100/night. It's about 10-15 min from the train that takes half an hour to get into the city.
We ended up getting a room in the Pavillion which I have to completely agree with other reviews here. Not extravagant and just rather ordinary, although a large room. Not at all what I expected from a Westin. The "king" bed was just two twins pushed together. There is no way I would go back and pay 400/night for this room.
We loved this hotel
Luxury all the way. We stayed 5 nights in the main building, room 106, first floor. Room was very nice and bathroom was huge and modern. Staff was very service oriented and made us feel welcome. IF you have some money to burn, stay here. Room service food was very good, but expensive of course. I went to the spa and had a manicure --the experience was fun, but I have had better manicures for the $$.
Versailles is a lovely place and this hotel is so close to the gardens. I would go back if at all possible.
A beautiful building, and Versailles is a must visit if you are in Paris.
Booked a night on our way back from the Loire valley to London. Having juggled several rates we ended up payin 335 Euros for a deluxe suite in the main building with breakfast and half a bottle of champagne
We stayed in the Trianon Palace recently for our honeymoon. We got a room in the main building with Starpoints, and we wholehartedly agree that there is a great difference between main building and pavillion. If you have any starpoints at all, try to upgrade to a deluxe room, which guarantees you will be in the main building. We contacted the hotel by email ahead of time to make sure. The room was beautiful, with a non-working fireplace, big bed, nice furnishings, etc. The pool was great, with an outdoor solarium, sauna and steam room. One caveat: Don't order "Americanized" room service. Our pizza was terrible. All of the food service was terribly overpriced. For breakfast, go to the Creperie Royale (first left off of the Boulevard de la Reine from the hotel). Three delicious courses of crepes for under 11 euros!
I was a little hesitant to spend over $400 on a room but there were several factors that allowed me to justify this expenditure. The location is superb, literally steps from the Gardens of Versailles. Westin Hotels, being a premier luxury hotel chain in the US, are generally very nice. My initial impression of this hotel was very good. The main building is a beautifully restored 19th century hotel. However, for $400 doesn't get the main building, you get the pavilion rooms. Sound nice? Well, they leave something to be desired. The 'Pavilion' looks more like a bunker than a luxury hotel. The rooms themselves were sub par for a luxury hotel. There was no heavenly bed here, just a lumpy set of two twins pushed together with stains on the comforter. Everything was old but not in the good antique way. The pool was very nice and the staff very courteous and helpful. I'm sure the suites and other rooms in the main building are nicer, as this hotel enjoys a very high ranking in most sources. If you don't want to pay $600+ for the main building (which I would do If I return b/c the location is GREAT), don't stay in the annex, you'll be disappointed.
LUXURY!!! This is one place which is a keeper. Staff is professional, courteous, knowledgeable - everything you'd expect from this type of hotel. If you have some money to splurge, stay here. It's very close to the palace - actually it's right next to the Grille de la Reine. It's a 25 minute walk from the Gare SNCF which was inconvenient for me since I didn't have a car and was backpacking. The rooms are beautifully appointed.
We found the Trianon Palace to be an outstanding value at 205EUR per night (in June, which is off-season according to them). The service was impeccable, friendly, and unpretentious. The room, despite being one of the smaller in the hotel, was quite spacious and tastefully appointed, with high ceilings and lots of light from the park that it faced. The large, bright, and airy bathroom, with luxury touches like dual sinks, a heated towel rack, and body jets in the shower, was fantastic.
