LuxeGetaways - - Feature -

Q: How did you come to be the Concierge at the prop­erty?

A: I worked as a Concierge for many years in pres­ti­gious ho­tels through­out Paris. When I de­cided to join the Tri­anon Palace Ver­sailles, A Wal­dorf As­to­ria Ho­tel, it was rst of all be­cause of its unique lo­ca­tion. Lo­cated just on the edge of the Château de Ver­sailles, the ho­tel also has its own his­tory. For ex­am­ple, I love to ex­plain to our guests that the Treaty of Ver­sailles was dra ed in our his­toric Cle­menceau Ball­room in 1919. It is a real honor for me to work in such a spec­tac­u­lar des­ti­na­tion and to share this on a day-to-day ba­sis with our guests while cre­at­ing un­forge able ex­pe­ri­ences.

Q: What “ex­pe­ri­ences” are your fa­vorites to cre­ate for fam­i­lies look­ing for some­thing spe­cial while stay­ing at the prop­erty?

A: When we have the plea­sure to wel­come li le kings and queens to the ho­tel, I love to sug­gest a very fun ac­tiv­ity with our “Trea­sure Hunt Book.” I give them an imag­i­na­tive game book we cre­ated around our ex­cep­tional se ings. From the ho­tel grounds to the gar­dens of the Château de Ver­sailles, they have plenty of places to dis­cover in order to

ll their book and know ev­ery­thing about the des­ti­na­tion. ey have fun, learn a lot about French his­tory, and can go back home with great mem­o­ries to share with the whole fam­ily.

Q: For cou­ples look­ing for a unique way to ex­pe­ri­ence the prop­erty and des­ti­na­tion, what would you sug­gest?

A: Among the nu­mer­ous un­forge able ex­pe­ri­ences our des­ti­na­tion can o er, my sug­ges­tions would be a ro­man­tic boat ride on the Grand Canal or horse drawn car­riage drive in the Château de Ver­sailles Park. Per­fec­tion!
