Best Hotels at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport
If you traveling to Paris from the United States, you'll arrive and depart from Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). If you are arriving late into Paris or departing early, consider staying at a hotel at CDG.
Pros: Since most US flights depart early in the day and require you to be at the airport a minimum of 3 hours before your flight to make it through the passport control and the numerous security checks, you can rest and relax knowing that you don't have to factor in extra time to make it to CDG from central Paris.
The low-stress factor - no worries about train strikes, traffic accidents on the way to the airport, having your taxi show up on time, sleeping through your early alarm - makes staying in a hotel at CDG very attractive.
Cons: Your spending your first or last night around CDG airport which has about as much charm as a strip mall compared to the cobble-stoned streets of central Paris.
If you have the means, try staying at the airport at either the luxurious Sheraton, located in the International Terminal 2, steps away from your gate; or the Hilton. Both have indoor pools, spa services, large rooms with upscale amenities, and high-end restaurants and bars.
