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.
Good Value - Good Service
Above average - and not excellent, because:
a) the location really aint so great (we spent the first two days for honeymoon here before moving into the center of Paris)
b) the way to Paris is quite long
c) you canīt do much there
The good things were though:
a) excellent concierge and bell boy
b) very friendly staff
c) nice regency lounge - although they did a mistake with my bill
d) clean rooms (we had a suite)
e) excellent bed and great linen
f) extra surprise (Champagne for free as a surprise)
g) excellent airport shuttle service
h) not too loud - although planes rush by
i) great breakfast in regency liunge and downstairs (on weekends)
j) price / value
k) bathroom toiletries
All in all a nice place to stay - but far from town and a bit remote. For travellers more than enough though!
Frustrated with this Airport Hotel
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.
Class act of a hyatt in paris
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.
I used Hyatt points for the Regency Club so I am not sure what the price difference is. If you are interested in the comforts that come with access to the Regency Lounge, then paying the upgrade price is well worth it (free cocktails, evening snacks, breakfast etc.).
The hotel restaurant (though expensive @ $55/fixe price dinner) is exceptional.
Not your father's Hyatt Regency!
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.
Our areas of complaint are really only these: room temperature (=hot!) and food prices (=expensive!).
Granted, there was an unexpected little heat wave in Paris -- 90 degrees Fahrenheit in May -- but we were still surprised that we simply couldn't cool our room down sufficiently to have a comfortable sleep by bedtime. The a/c felt weak, even though we gave it plenty of time to do its thing. A call to the front desk at 12:30 am revealed that there were no technicians on call, so we were given the option of relocating to a different room.
I can't begin to tell you how strange it was to stuff all our belongings back into our suitcases, and then to pad around in robe and slippers, trying to find a cool room. A very friendly young man led us on this search, and when one room seemed cool but a bit smoky, he insisted that we continue trying other rooms. He kept repeating that he wanted us to be COMPLETELY happy before settling on a new room. Finally, room number 4 was a success. He politely addressed my wife in perfect Japanese, and was generally just a wonderful guy -- he obviously did everything he could to make us happy.
As for food prices, the breakfast menu was just absurd, in our minds. Maybe it was due to our prior 3 nights in Paris, but we had completely different expectations as to the cost of a typical French breakfast. I mean, does 22 Euros per person (about $29) sound reasonable to anyone? We walked out of the lobby and found another hotel with a much more modest breakfast room, with the same breakfast for 4 Euros per person. Anyone care to do the math on that one, for two people? You still get all the coffee and great baguettes and butter that you want. But we're not really suggesting that people take this little walk to another restaurant -- we're just deploring the inflated price of this Hyatt's food.
To be fair, we found plenty of things to like about this hotel. But the comfortable bed, the friendly and professional staff, and the beauty of the lobby simply couldn't make up for the noisy jets (was this because we were on the top floor?), the warm room, and the overpriced food. We don't hate the place, but we would certainly figure out a better plan for our "last night in Paris" the next time we go. Staying in our wonderful hotel Muguet in the heart of Paris might be the way to go, since it gave us such a great combination of convenience and value.
The Best at CDG Airport
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".
OK, but not worth the money
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.

The atmosphere was even stronger with the crows flying overhead and the tall stone walls guarding the cemetery - a beautiful place but not one in which you'd want to be at night. Hearing the sound of drumming that could only mean the carnival was nearby, we set off to see if we could track it down. The carnival was very impressive and ...

Jeff had veal liver with mushrooms and potato purée. Dessert was poached pears with raspberry and Madeleine's for me and a chocolate floating island with mango and passion fruit. Washed down by an excellent bottle of Saint Estephe. Well it didn't take much persuading ...

I suspected the return time would be later that day, possibly even evening. That would be ok, as long we could ride it. Well! I have never seen such a line in all my life. The standby line was over 240+ minutes and all FP had been distributed for the day. The day was just getting better and better (insert sarcastic font here) and my ...

Kyria and I sat there for 20 minutes or so and then went off shopping. We hadn't had the opportunity to do much shopping in Paris yet so it was fun popping in and out of the shops. Quite a few of them were the same. We found a dress that we both really liked and ended up trying and buying. We then saw it ...
