CONCIERGE PROFILE: CONCIERGE ALAN VERNIER
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!
