Sleeping in Versailles!


Checking in?  Versailles, as of 2012, will be opening to overnight guests!  Yes, the legendary and fabled palace of French monarchs will be renting out rooms!  Due to cuts in government funding, the historic landmark is getting into the hotel business!  Hotel l’Orangerie will be housed in the Hotel du Grand Controle, a building that is part of the sprawling complex and enjoys views of the Orangerie and Palace.  So while, you cannot book a room in the palace proper, this will probably be the closest one can get to living the life of a French royal.  Restoration of the Hotel du Grand Controle begins this year and the hotel should open in 2012!  Read more here.

Bonne nuit! Rêves doux!
