Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport
Travel Blogs from Roissy
... it is, if it could be decorated, it was. A lot of effort was put into this building and it was lovely to see that it is still in use. After the opera house we went to see the dome at the Galeries Lafayette. It was really rather impressive as stained glass windows go. We had to struggle at bit to get in as it is a department store and was very busy. Their christmas display is apparently very popular and its right under the dome so it was quite packed. We then started to walk home. ...
... tables and chairs are on top of each other and everyone smokes so you feel like someone could easily ash their cigarette right on your lap. After our meal we walked all the way back to our hotel. We wanted to see the city on our final night under the lights and it was beautiful the way the city lit up under the soft lights. We are ready for Barcelona in the ...
Tourists fill every available nook and cranny in this city and the singsong melodies of the English language fill my ears more than the local speech. They are easy to lose though, with a baguette, some French cheese, and a picnic surrounded by locals in the park I find myself in the real Paris and I am at peace.
It's been good Paris, Au Revoir for now, but perhaps one day, I will return.
Well, things started off great... We were out of the villa by 8 and even had a last breakfast on the patio thanks to Paula and Faye. John did his usual incredible job of packing us all up and getting us to the TGV station at Aix-en-Provence without any navigational problems. Our train was scheduled to leave at 9:30 (it was about 10 min. late) and although we thought we were headed directly to the airport outside ...
On our last day in Belgium we spent the morning at Waterloo, about 40 mins from Brussels. There is a museum there where Wellington stayed before and after the battle and it was from there that he sent his despatches off to London claiming victory. Thus the battle became known as Waterloo but the battle itself was fought at a little hamlet a few kilometres away.
It was a really interesting visit and our guide was a wealth of information about the battle itself ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Roissy
Nice hotel, deficient housekeeping & guest services
The very impressive lobby is a nice welcome to this Hilton property. The hotel is very tastefuly designed and decorated, the rooms are nice and very comfortable. The hotel location is great - their shuttle takes you there in less than 5 minutes from terminals. Most of the rooms have views of the CDG runways which is nice if you are a plane enthusiast as I am. The hotel is completely sound-proof so you do not get to be disturbed by the airport noise. However I was disappointed with housekeeping. There were small particles of paper towels left on the floor and on the sofa when I got the room. There was no tea or coffee in the room although a posted note suggested I should find some in the mini bar. When looking for coffee in the minibar I touched an item an a sensor obviously must have gone off, since that item was charged to my account. This incident prevented me from using express check-out since I had to stop at the front desk and request the charge to be removed from my account. At check-in I also requested a 6AM wake-up call, which never happened! Luckily I had my mobile alarm set just in case. If I hadn't set it I would have missed my morning plane! What kind of a hotel does not give arranged wake-up calls?
Had to spend 2 nights at Charles de Gaulle Airport; found a good deal for a week-end: room with breakfast for 99 euros/night. Bonus: the first night, at the restaurant it was 2 dinners for the price of one. Buffet dinner with wonderful food, like oysters on the shell, etc...Great value.
Terrific employees. Luxury. Best hotel and best food at the airport
Excellent hotel. We checked in at about 9pm after a missed flight and finding the Ibis unacceptable. We probably paid more without a reservation than I have since seen advertised. It is a lovely hotel, mainly for business use I think, with large foyer, atrium etc. We paid for an executive room which gave access to the executive lounge, this allowed free drinks and snacks, which is a real bonus (this included alcoholic drinks).
The room was huge by Paris standards, with a very large bathroom with separate shower and bath. The inclusive breakfast was excellent, although I believe it is 24 Euros if not in an executive room. We ate at the restaurant in the evening at it is typical airport hotel fare, not great and pricey. Service was slow.. which really is the only criticism I can level at this hotel. I would definitely stay here again. Has a free courtesy bus to the terminals and is adjacent to the bus terminal and RER railway station.
Hilton CDG: Outstanding Property and a Great Value
Airport hotels can be hard to love, since they are often chosen more for the sake of location and convenience. This often leads to things being allowed to become a little threadbare as properties make a living off a steady supply of one-time visitors.
The Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is a refreshing contrast to the typical airport fare. Inside its functional, soundproof shell is a meticulously maintained luxury property that is all that a Hilton should be. Guest rooms are nicely appointed and immaculate. The fitness center is well-equipped, including a small pool that is kept spotless and at a comfortable water temperature. Guest rooms are very large by European standards and we particularly give the nod to the executive rooms, with crown moldings and well-done bathrooms with separate showers. The Club room offers a nice selection of snacks at cocktail hour, along with continental breakfast and afternoon tea.
Common areas of the hotel are impressive, beginning with the glass atrium. The Aviators restaurant offers a wide-ranging menu, along with delicious buffet offerings. (Let's face it, France is all about good food. While we're not handing out any Michelin stars at the airport Hilton, we know you'll find it as good or better than many typical hotel restaurants.) The staff was friendly and attentive, too.
A nice feature of the hotel is that it is an easy walk across the parking lot to the RER station, which will take you to downtown Paris in about a half an hour for 7.75 Euros. We were pleasantly surprised to pick up the Hilton CDG off the Hilton website for 94 Euros including breakfast during our weekend stay, which is an absolute steal for this quality of property. We give it a big thumbs up in every respect. The Hilton CDG is a top-shelf property and a great choice for people who may have a morning flight or a late arrival.
We arrived into Paris around 9 pm and did not want to make the trip into the city so we stayed at the CDG Hilton. For an airport hotel it was one of the nicest and most luxurious that I have stayed in. Our room was huge and had a king size bed. The offerings on the breaksfast buffet were extensive and delicious. The staff was more than helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
Great for quick overnight
Just completed a one-night stay at this property. Great room product (free standing shower and a deep soaking tub). Food was a little pricey (but that is the norm for hotel food all over Europe) as was the mini-bar (4Euros for a soft drink). Very convenient to Terminals 1&2 and the RER stop is right behind the hotel. Great "planespotting" opportunities and very quiet rooms. I would certainly stay there again (especially at the special 53Euro rate I received on the Hilton website!).
Great for 8:35Am Air France to JFK
Stayed in the Hilton Charles de Gaule on my last night in Paris on Easter Sunday since had an 8:35 AM flight on Air France to JFK the next day. Hotel was perfect after being in the smaller European style hotels in the city itself and let me and my wife get a good night sleep and good bath/shower after a week in Paris. The room I had was large with a full bath with both a shower and bath. The King size bed was very comfortable. The hotel had a very large breakfast which I did not partake since it cost 24 euros so just made some coffee in the room and grabbed some pastries at the Airport before my flight. The Shuttle leaves every 15 minutes and the hotel is within walking distance of CDG1 stop on the RER train from the city. Since was just staying a day did not check out the fitness facility or pool though the meeting area looked very nice of what I saw before getting asked to leave by the Hotel staff. The price for my room was 119 euros prepaid. This is a good hotel for Business or if like me you are taking the 8:35 AM air france flight to JFK and do not want to hastle waking up an hour earlier that would be required if one slept in city centre. There also is an IBIS hotel nearby if one is on more of a budget which also looked decent for a one night stay before a early flight.
Beautiful rooms, but food was questionable
This hotel is really quite beautiful and the rooms were very large and exceptionable and the staff very friendly. But ... I was deathly ill on the flight home probably because of something I had eaten from room service at midnite, on the eve of our departure. If it wasn't for this unfortunate incident, I would give this hotel 5 stars. I recommend that you order dinner in the restaurant or at an earlier hour in your room.
Very nice hotel/good value
Beautifull hotel in great location just 5 minutes away from terminals.
Easy access to Paris via train. Very good value for price paid. Good value rates 3 weeks out. Large rooms. Complimentary access to indoorpool + sauna....loved it!
Hotel is within a 5 minute shuttle to CDG. Basic business class hotel very expensive. Taxi to Paris center is about 50 Euro one way. Would not suggest staying here if want to visit city center. Great for meeting a early morning flight.
