Imagine opening your hotel room window to gaze upon the lavish grounds and famous palace of Versailles after spending a night on the estate itself. That prospect could soon be reality — at least for some of the wealthier visitors to France — after a government body that manages Versailles put out a tender to build a hotel alongside the fabled grounds. There are plans for three 17th century buildings on the border of the palace property to be converted into a luxury hotel, according to officials who confirmed a report in the newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche. Guests will have to enter the hotel from a road outside the estate, and not all the rooms will give on to the grounds. But those that do will have a view across the Versailles gardens and, by craning necks to the right, a bit of the palace.
