Hyatt Regency Paris Charles de Gaulle
Travel Blogs from Roissy
A leisurely morning this morning . Our first I think. Check out at 11 then heading by cab to the station . Mum and dad had planned on going to church but couldn't find a small local Methodist church close enough to us. It took me that long to shove everything in my bag. I'm not using my cabin bag so that it's easier to help mum as dad has their 2 …
And the adventure begins!!!
I got to the airport on Saturday, about three hours before the flight. We all met and went to the flight together, and while we waited discussed how little French we all knew (and possibly how screwed we're going to be haha). The flight was loooooong. But I got to watch Argo, eat some "great" airplane food, and take a nap for a couple of hours. Flying into the Charles de Gaulle airport, we got to see an ariel view of Paris. The Eiffle Tower was really ...
... Her name was Katie and she was from Canada. She was good company and we ended up doing a pub crawl together that night in Leicester Square. We didn't do much between the tour and pub crawl, just had a nap and chilled. The pub crawl started at 9pm at a pub in St Martins Place (thought of you dad). There were about 120 people doing the pub crawl! We all got given a t shirt and marker to draw on each others shirts throughout the night. We went to 4 places throughout the night ...
... a hiccup of some kind! Time for a coffee and some book reading. We also bought some tickets for the Metro, so we will be good to go once we reach Gare du Nord. Eurostar was fantastic. So quick - we were in France before we knew it. Interesting thing was that that trip only cost us 38 euros each and the Heathrow Express was 20! Reckon being a Senior with Eurostar is good value. Directions to the Metro were good, so we managed to ...
... to Islam so this church took it. I am not sure why the others turned it down it seemed ok to me.
From here we got back on track and continued our walk around Marais which is one of the older parts of Paris,lots of beautiful old mansions, lovely little parks, art studios and of course cafes. We headed into the first planned square called Place des Vosges, this was also where Victor Hugo lived for a long period of time. It is surrounded ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Paris Charles de Gaulle Roissy
Nice Hotel Close to the Airport - Food Prices are Ridiculous
Very nice modern hotel near the airport. We got an excellent rate of USD $149 per night for a Saturday night stay. The hotel seemed almost empty.
The room was quiet and comfortable. But the desk was placed between the bed and the TV. They brought in an extra bed for my ll year old son, which was nice but made the room crowded.
The prices at the restaurant are ridiculous, although the food is good. I took a picture of their 20 Euro ($24) cheeseburger.
The bathroom was large and clean, although the large window curtain had a stain on it. The sink top is not very large.
This hotel is farther away from the airport than some of the others (about 5-10 minutes). Some road construction is makes the shuttle ride to the hotel longer than it should be.
We stayed at this hotel because we had an early flight and we read good reviews on Trip Advisor. What a waste of 300 Euros!. The room was stylish but the bathroom shower had big cracks in it and mildew all around the tiles. We asked to switch to another room. Customer service on the phone, said he would call us back. This was about 10 PM ( we checked in late). He never called so we went to the front desk. The woman there gave us keys to another room. But the shower was worse- tons of mildew and cracks. Then she showed us a third room with the same problem. The front desk woman was tired of us by this time and she said that was all she had. We gave up and went to sleep. They charged 300 Euros for a substandard room and she offered no compensation to us to make us feel better. That is the last time we wil use Hyatt.
Beautiful Hotel ... Expensive Meal
We stayed at the Hyatt Regency for one night before an early morning flight back to the States the next day. The hotel is stunning ... sleek and modern with a wonderful atrium that Hyatts are known for. The restaurant, however, charges a king's ransom for OK food. You are a captive audience and they know it! It turned out to be our most expensive AND least impressive meal in Paris. One other thing to mention ... we had a rental car that we were returning to CDG the next morning. The last gas station into the airport, however, is just before the merge you need to take to get onto the airport road. We ended up backing our car about 50 yards on the shoulder of the highway so we could "gas up" ... not recommended.
Good airport hotel
The Hyatt Regency at CdG airport is reasonable in price, very nice in accomodation and excellent in convenience with a free hotel shuttle every 15 minutes to each of the many terminals at the airport.
The architecture (a very large central atrium with 2 wings) is interesting and gives a lovely feel of space.
The restaurant is good, but very expensive - my wife and I had our most expensive meal of our enire 3 week holiday in France here.
I had two rooms on the Regency Club level for one night prior to returning to the USA. This is virtually a new hotel and provides every amenity possible to make for a comfortable stay near the airport. There are many hotels near the airport of worthwhile chains such as the Sofitel, Sheraton etc. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the airport and truly goes above and beyond the call of duty in making you comfortable, feel welcome and respond to every need.
Last weekend, we stayed at the Roissy Hyatt Regency for our final night in Paris, so that we would have a stress-free departure from CDG airport the next day. . . not such a good plan, after all.
This ultra-modern hotel is the best combination of quality and proximity to CDG, and it is stunning. It usually has much better prices for this level of luxury than at downtown hotels. You can't help but be struck by the design -- reminiscent of United's Terminal 1 at Chicago ORD. Quaint, this is not. But it is beautiful, nonetheless. The atrium is immense. The rooms are first quality, also ultra-modern, almost Japanese in decor, except for the cloud-like luxurious bed. The food is very good. The Regency Club lounge food is better than at most Hyatts. (Meaning no criticism of them.) Free airport shuttle every 15 minutes, as mentioned in another review. So, this works for those arriving by train, as well. But what was not mentioned is the hotel's own free bus to Opera every morning (at 10:00) and return in the evening. One small issue with it: The return departs Opera at 6:00pm -- in November, at least -- and this can be a little confining, especially if it's still the case during European Summer Time (Daylight Savings). But it is free... and there is the inexpensive train back to CDG from downtown if one misses the hotel bus. And some of the trains back are express, meaning a lot fewer stops than most. Then one can take the Hyatt's airport shuttle that stops at the (second, going outbound) airport train station, as it does at the air terminals, until late at night. The only sacrifice is not staying "in the middle of it all".
I've been to Paris several times, and most recently was a trip to see my boyfriend who lives there (but with roommates) for Valentine's Day. For the holiday, and because I wanted something more luxurious than the tiny rooms and tiny beds that I've gotten in central Paris, I spent the extra money to stay here, largely because the Web site boasted an indoor pool and a pool table in the lounge. It was a very nice hotel, but the heat was apparently turned WAY up, because I had my room's air-conditioning up full blast and it did NOTHING. I complained and a technician came, but it didn't do any good, so they moved me to another room. It wasn't any better. The windows don't open ... they said because the airport is nearby and it's loud. (Um, so people bothered by the planes could close the window, no?) So I was warm the whole time, and I'm a person who likes it to be a bit cool, especially to sleep. The food was way overpriced, even considering hotel food, and there were few choices for someone who doesn't eat meat. And you had to PAY to use the pool table! Fifteen euros per hour, a rather steep price even at a nice billiards parlor. But this table leaned and there were only two cues, both of which were awful. If paying guests have to spend even more money to use the table, the hotel could at least ensure that it's quality equipment.
Great place to stay if you're leaving early
This is a great place to stay if your flying out early or want a place to stay upon arrival.
The hotel is not rich in French culture, but the food is good and there is a free shuttle to the airport.
Ample size room and a very, very comfortable bed. Quiet.
