Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Marriott Hotel
Travel Blogs from Roissy
... we're staying at a local hotel tonight. The normally 10-minute shuttle bus to our hotel took over an hour into the teeth of evening rush hour, but we arrived in good shape right before a large tour bus. The hotel, the Campanile Roissy, is neat and clean and efficient and Jetsons-meets-Ikea. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was really quite good. Mike had an excellent ratatouille and Sharon had fun sampling just about everything on the dessert bar, a fitting ...
... back to hotel. First female cabbie we have had and she had no English at all and did not know how to get to hotel so only charged us 15 euro as she had to do a bit of a tricky tour. Feeling hot and sticky, so had lovely shower and put on clean clothes, now dinner time!!! Decided to go over the road to a Pizza place as it was still a bit wet out and didn't want to walk too far in it. Sat down, owner asked where we were from, told him NZ, he said he ...
... and spent time looking at the art. After that, we had wonderful Lebanese wraps for dinner then ended the evening by eating crepes and relaxing down along the Seine.
Since I accidentally knocked Nathan's Dortmund flower off its stem, we decided to look for a way to preserve the flower so Nathan could keep it as a souvenir. We didn't have the time to press or dry it though, so we decided to look for resin to put the flower in. We had looked for silica gel the ...

6 Juillet 2013
Another full day in Paris. There is a lot to do and see here.
Mike woke up early as usual and did his morning jog along the river Seine. He ran a little farther today and ran to the Louvre and back.
He also went to le Gare Lyon to pick up breakfast and coffee for all, but since it was Saturday, all the normal shops catering to commuters were still closed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Marriott Hotel Roissy
Marriot does no disappoint...
I was only in Paris for a few days and wanted to be close to the airport. We had a double room and i must say after hearing some horror stories about some very small hotel rooms in Paris i was pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of the room.
While the hotel is not close to anything other than the AIRPORT and their is no view other than what appeared to be a freeway, the staff spoke English and was extremely attentive and helpful.
The onsite restaurant was a good value since it offered a three-course dinner for one price. The breakfast buffet provided a large assortment of meats, cheeses, and fruits.(though not all the fruit was freshly cut...it was obvious the pineapples and some of the other fruits were from cans) -- but the made to order omelets were EXCELLENT!!!
As always, the Marriot chain did not disappoint...
We only stayed at the Courtyard Marriot for one-night, before we leave for an early flight the next morning in CDG. However, this was a great hotel!
This is a very lovely hotel. I am surprised that it was rated 3*. The amenities included an in-room safe, FREE high-speed internet (which is rare in Paris & London), and FREE breakfast buffet (depending on which room package you got). The King Size bed was very comfortable with its down comforter and pillows. It was a big room and is according to American standards and actually better than any other U.S. based Courtyards, I've seen so far! I would definitely stay here again!
1. Nice, large room.
2. Good location / transportation service for early morning flights.
3. Receptionists were very nice.
4. Good breakfast.
5. FREE coffee in lobby for guests.
1. No Refridgerator in the room.
2. Costs 5 Euros per room for shuttle ride (round-trip).
3. No Coffee maker in room.
TRANSPORTATION TO HOTEL
1. Take RER B from Paris (Gare du Nord) to the CDG Terminal 2.
2. Hop on a lift to the 5th Floor (it will be an outside curb waiting area).
3. A small hotel shuttle (WHITE) marked with various hotels on the side including Courtyard Marriot comes every 15 minute or so until 1:00AM. No need to call hotel for shuttle, it is automatically 15 minutes!
Great Hotel Close to the Airport
Great hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. Free high speed internet in the rooms was a definite plus. The food in the restaurant was typical restaurant food, but for France it's actually above average!
The 24 hour sundry/snack shop was a really nice touch if you're an insomniac and the rate (I paid 109 euros) makes it great va
Unhelpful staff--charges everywhere you turn
I just completed my second stay at this hotel. Where the rooms are normal size (by any standard) and the restaurant pretty good, I don't plan on staying here again.
First, the hotel charges you 5 Euros to use their shuttle to the airport. (This is an airport hotel!)
Secondly, The hotel staff was completely incapable of explaining to me how to use my international long distance phone card that I purchased inside the city of Paris. This card was used at the Renaissance in Paris with no difficulty--the toll free number on the card would not work at this hotel--the staff didn't know why and was not interested in helping. I had to use my credit card for my calls. 5 Euros upon connection and 5 Euros PER MINUTE after that. I had one eight minute call that was 40 Euros!
Thirdly, they do not have express checkout thus requiring an interminable wait in the morning for checkout. Even though they take your credit card upon checking, you have to give it to them again upon checkout. What a waste of time.
I've stayed at the CDG Hilton and this hotel and the Hilton is BY FAR the better, nicer, more helpful staffed hotel.
Go to the Hilton rather than this place.
Best Hotel on Whole Trip
Definately 5 Star.... Especially clean rooms. English speaking movies available (very welcoming at the end of a two week stay of only watching a biased CNN). Wonderful help and an EXCELLENT Restaurant with the famous Marriott Hamburger available. Nothing like our Courtyards in the U.S. More like the Marriott Marquis.
Nice new hotel, good for the airport, but not much else!
The Courtyard by Marriott at CDG is a very nice, new hotel. Inside it has everything that a standard Marriott has, so I'm not exactly sure why it's only a Courtyard.
Its location, on a trading estate, might be something that doesn't appeal to many. It's handy for Paris Charles De Gaulle and Le Bourget Airports, so for aircrew it would be great, but for getting into Paris, I don't think it's that good an option.
Bar and Restaurant were both good and the rooms are modern, fresh and surprisingly big. Staff friendly, even to us Brits!
One tip, use the shuttle bus from the airport. If you get into a taxi they have to take you, they have no option to refuse you (it's only a very short journey) but the drive will be horrible - the taxi driver will be insulting you all the way along and, no matter how big the tip, will not be happy. Perhaps that's gallic charm, but to me it's pretty rude and gives a bad first impression of a nice country.
Best place we stayed in France!
Hidden hotel, make sure you find ourt in advance where to pick up the free shuttle. We flagged down the shuttle as it was driving by and he told us where to go. After a crowded ride, we were let off in front of this oasis. All the airline crews seem to stay here. Got the room key when we arrived at 12 Noon. Beautiful quiet room - got the AAA discount rate thru travelocity and they never asked for my AAA card. Went for a cheeseburger in the restaurant. Beautiful restaurant. I get the feeling they watch you- if you are English speaking, they pair you with an English speaking waiter! So ordering your food is not delayed by the language barrier! As the burger was a little rare and we left one bite uneaten on the plate, the matre d came by and asked if there was a problem like he was ready to do the burger over! The bar drinks are a little high. All in all, excellent service, excellent value. Excellent French food and they will describe it to you in English!
Best kept CDG Airport hotel secret
We stayed here the night before our morning departure back to Chicago and might have second-guessed ourselves for not staying here longer. Spacious hotel lobby, great food, and very comfortable, clean rooms. Might be the ideal place to stay if your visit to Paris is short and prefer the comforts of a nice hotel over the feel of being in Paris.It's nestled in an area just 10 minutes away by shuttle bus from the Charles de Gaulle Airport. The shuttle bus to the airport (only 5 Euros pr room) leaves every 20 minutes in the morning. Just make sure you are waiting outside because they don't stick around for more than a minute or so.
I was bummed that I had to arrange accomodation by the airport----Boy was I wrong!! Gorgeous hotel, beautiful rooms and wonderful food.
Compared to where I ended up staying in Paris on my return flight....This place was remarkable. Business people! Book it!
Vacationers if you can make way for the ride back and forth into the city it is well worth the trouble. I would/never consider a Courtyard Marriott at home, but if you want comfort bordering on luxury for not much. Book This Hotel. The staff was marvelous---Even to my clients who spoke no french at all.
The Courtyard by Marriott at Paris CDG airport was a great value. The lobby is more like a 5 star hotel, very spacious and bright. The room was more simple, but very well furnished and a very comfortable bed. It was very quiet. The layout is a bit strange, it's like a maze to get to some rooms. There is a nice sized gym. The restaurant was reasonably priced, and there is a small shop, almost like a small market in the lobby, where you can get sandwiches in packages and other fresh snacks.
I saw MANY airline crews staying at this hotel. The hotel has a shuttle to the airport, operating on a schedule about three times an hour, for 5 Euros roundtrip. It's a bit far from the airport, about 25 minutes away by the shuttle bus, but if you want to stay closer, expect to pay double or triple the price. The staff was very friendly. Overall, a good value.
