This Christmas, stroll through the winter wonderland of Versailles, without the maddening crowds. From December 17-December 29, enjoy unbelievable specials at the Trianon Palace and Spa, as the rates drop to a very festive EUR 99 a night. Or bring the whole family with the Christmas Family Package—which includes accommodations in a Deluxe Palace room, complimentary room and free breakfast for the kiddies, and Westin Kid's Bag upon check-in, for only EUR 295 a night. Just nine miles from downtown Paris, the Trianon is a luxurious palace set on eight gorgeous acres bordering Louis XIV's Royal Domain. The historical hotel has hosted the world's political and business leaders since 1910. Recently-renovated rooms feature stately decor (as you would expect) and views of the gardens. The 2,800 sq m Spa isn't too shabby either.
