Sarah Bernhardt, Built in 1909 on a large wooded lot that belonged to the monks, on the edge of the park of the castle by the architect René Sergent, creator of the Claridge in London, the Grand Hotel in Rome, the Trianon was the dream of a stone French businessman, Gabriel Martignan Weill, who had indeed detected the major asset of the hotel to come: its location in the shadow of the Sun King.
The address itself is an invitation to History: 1 Boulevard de la Reine.
Since its inauguration in 1910, the Trianon neo-classical attracted the cream of the Cafe Society, Marcel Proust, Sarah Bernhardt, Rene Lacoste tennis player, and more recently, Jean Cocteau, Marcel Achard, Sacha Guitry, Rene Clair and Michael Jackson. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor have spent their honeymoon, marriage in Versailles.
It’s in the lounge on the ground floor, Georges Clemenceau drafted in May 1919 the terms of the Treaty of Versailles signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Chateau. In nine decades, the palace to the seventy-five meters long, six-story windows and 320 suffered the ravages of time, so in 1990 he has been completely renovated in 2008, a Guerlain spa, fifteen cabins and a indoor pool were added to all 199 rooms and suites comfort. So what was the TPH was admitted into the circle of the finest five-star in Europe. In 2009, he received the title at the European Awards for “Best Interior Design”.
Majestic and intimate at once, Discount Hotel Versailles Joseph Kessel has never been better designed, more pleasant-season romantic royal twenty minutes from Paris. Full every weekend.
Alas, the great chef Gerard Vie, the Lent of Versailles, was not found in the kitchen. He retired. Since 1999, the Trianon is owned by Hilton Group, which has included in his “Waldorf Astoria”.
Side kitchen, new investors have called for the two restaurants in English, three star hotels in London, Gordon Ramsay, a student of Guy Savoy, to run the two restaurants, room service and banquets. After two years of intermittent presence, the British strong character gave up the piano, going over to Simone Zanoni, his right arm at the Claridge, star of London. Happy handover, quicksilver Zanoni has retained the two stars, one wonders why the fancy restaurant is still called “Gordon Ramsay” deception harmful to the Trianon.
At the Veranda, pub food well turned luxury: risotto with halibut, marinated burrata salad with black truffles, bar flavored with pesto and Black Angus rib of beef and bearnaise for two. Crunchy chocolate caramel shortbread.
Starred restaurant, the gourmet will enjoy the evening’s creations Zanoni, Breton lobster tortellini, ravioli of lobster steamed Riesling and carpaccio, tartare and crab Scottish bar or Bresse pigeon with port wine, almonds Hazelnut: the craftsmanship, tastes and textures. In the third track star if the best Italian carves its toppings.
Desserts maestro Eddie Benghanem from the Ritz, the pineapple pina colada. Side wines, the sommelier Laurent Beaudoin selections stunning, looking for good wine and successful vintages, the Chorey-les-Beaune 2008 from Tollot-Beaut to 14 euros per glass, Zind Humbrecht Riesling superb at 16 euros and jurançon Quintessence 2006 of a divine coolness to 16 euros.
