For the first time in its 387-year history, you can now sleep like royalty at the Palace of Versailles, which opened its very first hotel on June 1.
Known as The Great Control, the hotel offers 14 rooms and suites and a signature suite, all designed by architect Christophe Tollemer. The interior is inspired by the late 18th century opulence of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI.
Guests will have full access to the estate of what the French call the Château de Versailles and its surroundings, including areas usually closed to visitors.

You will need to shell out around $2,000 per night to stay at the national monument. But, the cost includes a personal butler and private tours of the palace and its grounds.
