A grand luxury hotel in the traditional stylePosted Nov 30, 2013
Pros: Grand style in traditional manner but fully modernized.
Location: A wonderful place to stay if you want a quiet retreat but still be close to Paris (a 15 min walk & 30 minutes by train to almost any major attraction
Stayed one week to relax in a quiet, comfortable environment.

EXTREMELLY EXPENSIVEPosted Nov 19, 2013
Strictly for those without a budget. Not far from Paris so don't see the advantage of staying here as Paris is only 45 minutes away and absolutely nothing to do in this town after you visit Versailles. Very limited bar menu. If you just want to get away from Paris but believe the place is haunted for I and my fiancé had troublesome dreams here, very very weird. So if you don't mind dreaming about ghosts or breaking your wallet then move right in.

Wonderful hotel, close to Palace of VersaillesPosted Oct 30, 2013
Pros: Literally right next to the grounds around the Palace of Versailles and just a short walk to the main palace area. Great pool, relaxing, classy vibe.
Cons: We were on the top floor and there wasn't really enough head room in the bath room to have a comfortable shower, but the bath was excellent.
Location: Great location, literally right next to the palace grounds which we were free to stroll through. Also good private restaurants nearby.
Wonderful hotel with top class amenities and facilities. We especially enjoyed the pool and the restaurants. Breakfast was reasonable value with dedicated omelette/crepe chef on hand to take your special orders.

Its 2 hotels in 1Posted Oct 24, 2013
Cons: service, maybe a sign somewhere showing location as it is difficult to find
Location: great place for running adjacent to the hotel, perhaps one of the most scenic jogging paths in the world.
I booked this hotel at an excellent rate and was very excited to stay....until I read the reviews. I found out that if you paid the cheap expedia rate they stick you in a stone conference center across the way and not in the beautiful building. As I was going for my birthday I didnt want to be banished so I wrote to them begging to stay in the main building. They said they would upgrade me IF it was available but for only 75 euro more a day they could ensure the switch. I did it and am glad I did, our room was gorgeous with a first class bathroom with heated mosaic tile floors and marble. Now HERE are the problems: One day the maids left dirty glasses and all of the dirty sheets in a pile on the chairs in the room, we requested a wakeup call that never came, there was a hair in the clean (?) coffee cup, and the thing that really irritated me was when I was putting some wine in the mini bar to chill it knocked a couple of other bottles off of their weighted pads and of course charged me for them, when I was checking out I told him to take them off as I did not use anything in the mini bar, Vincent said he would "pending checking with the cleaning staff of course". Wow, I have never been told that I may be lying so he will have to check with the staff, when you are spending over 300/night you really should be given the benefit of the doubt in my mind. So. in summation, it is a nice hotel but I definitely see why the reviews are so uneven, because the hotel is.

nice but expensivePosted Oct 20, 2013
stunning hotel, beautiful location, rooms etc one off putting thing was the cost of everything. £250 a night and an 8 euro for room service, 25 euros for soup or a burger - just wouldn't expect to pay the extras on a room that expensive. very corporate and plain for a 4 star hotel. amazing location though.

Not a Waldorf level hotel - grossly overpricedPosted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: Location next to Versailles entrance
Cons: Condition of building. Lower prices.
This hotel should not be branded a Waldorf . It is grossly overpriced. We were put in a side building that was worn and our room was small and simple. It was clean but nowhere near luxurious. Wanting to eat after checking in late, a club sandwich was 28 Euros! A coffee at the lounge, 8 Euros. Point is, you will arrive expecting luxury and willing to pay for it but will be greatly disappointed.

Excellent stay.Posted Oct 11, 2013
Pros: Close to Versailles, clean and comfortable. Heated bathroom tile floor.
Cons: Food is too expensive.
Staff so helpful and courteous. Room spacious, clean and comfortable. Food very expensive. $150 American for two sandwiches and two drinks room service. $10.00 for one cup of coffee. Ridiculous prices.

Historic hotel in a historic locationPosted Oct 11, 2013
Pros: Staff helpful; very friendly in a professional manner.
Cons: 1) Separation between the older and newer buildings, inconvenient in bad weather; 2) Insanely expensive Internet access charges (25 EUR per day)
Location: Adjacent to the historic park of Versailles palace, you can walk freely in and stroll around the well-kept grounds (not the palace itself, though).
Elegance cascades from every corner of this facility. Great comfort, a sense of being a (small) part of history. The original part of the hotel was opened in 1910, and played an important role in both World Wars. It's a 20 minute walk from Versailles Rive Droite rail station, with several trains per hour to La Défence (25 min) and St. Lazare station (35 min) in downtown Paris. (Note: I don't think the clientele of this hotel is expected to walk to the station, but it makes a good way to enjoy the historic elegance at a more reasonable cost...and get some exercise at the same time! There are taxis waiting at the station for those who want a bit of both worlds.)

Versailles anyone?Posted Oct 10, 2013
Very close the the palace! The hotel is tucked into a cute area with many shops and restaurants within a blocks walk. The main building is traditional french architecture and lobby is very welcoming. The rooms are spacious and trendy. This was a comfortable home away from home! Highly recommended, service was wonderful and after a long day of walking and taking in the sights one needs attentive service. Would stay here again soon and already told several friends about it for their next trip.

Perfect location to visit Palace of VersaillePosted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: Architecture and location.
Cons: Technology facilities are a bit dated. Wifi in room is charged in addition to wired internet, and movies/tv interface and selection/quality is basic.
Location: Palace of Versaille, Gardens and Trianon Palaces also in the grounds. Bike hire including tandems is fun, or hourly hire of golf buggies too.
This hotel is stunning in terms of architecture and grandeur. Guests are distributed between the main building and the second more modern Pavillion. We were based in the Pavillion and had an extremely spacious room with good outlook to the main building and gardens. The buffet breakfast is exceptional. We chose to eat out of an evening as the restaurants are high end, formal and people do dress up to dine. It is located at one of the entry gates into the Versaille Palace greater gardens. We feel 3 days is best really to cover the sights... the chateaux, the gardens and Trianon Palaces, and we walked in each day, which was perfect. Rive Droit station is only a 15 minute walk with lots of architecture to appreciate along the way.
