Arrow Hilton Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport {FRA}

Any comments on Hilton @ CDG?

We have a one-night stay due to connections and an early morning flight. Is there an easy and convenient access to the RER to go into the city?

We were able to obtain a rate of 950FF, which seems like a great bargin.

I stayed there once as a Hilton Gold and they upgraded me to a corner room on the Executive floor and received access to the Club Lounge. The room was large with a large marble bathroom (separate shower and bathtub)and amenities galore. Excellent service. Points posted within 24 hours.

From CDG Terminal 1, I called the hotel from the shuttle stop and the Hilton shuttle bus arrived in 5 minutes. Leaving the hotel for the airport, shuttle bus stood outside. They have 2 shuttle buses - one each for CDG1 and CDG2.

The Club Room (open till 11:00 p.m.) serves beer, hard liquor, coffee and soda and nut mix. Never ate the continental breakfast as my rate included the buffet breakfast.

CDG1 station for RER B is about 100 yards behind the hotel. Purchase the one-day pass for 110FRF which gives unlimited access to RER and metro, otherwise it's 49FRF each-way and you have to pay as you go if you use the metro. When you return to CDG at night, make sure you take the train headed towards CDG2, not Mitry. Both trains depart from the same platform. I think the last train departs Chatelet Les Halles around 11:45 p.m.

Have a good stay!

This is a great hotel. I think I may have had that same corner room...

The lounge is well stocked... but not large... so if a lot of people are there, it could get cramped.

I was also surprised when... after being in the room for 10 minutes... a knock at the door from a bellman delivering a gift of gourmet nuts. (They came in handy on that economy flight back across the ocean!).

Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport

Has anyone stayed in or have any information that could be pertinent to my stay at the Hilton at CDG in Paris? Nice? Easy access to tourist attractions and such? Thanks!

Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Trip Reports and Reviews

I stayed there in May this year. Hotel is nice, I've got automatic upgrade to Exec floor and everything Gold-related stuff (there is a good swimming pool and sauna as well).

The CDG Hilton is bit far from the city, but the local train station is only 100m behind the hotel and RER-B train can get you to the city centre in 20-30 minutes with departure every 15 mins (don't remember exactly).

Enjoy your stay,

I've stayed there several times. Pretty much agree with Absik001's assessment, although it's a little longer (40 minutes) getting to central Paris on the RER. If you are staying a few days, I would recommend staying in the city - more convenient. The Paris RER/Metro will take you just about anywhere in the city - fast and efficiently.

The hotel is excellent. Every visit as a Hilton Gold has been upgraded - once to a large corner suite. Staff is extremely friendly, helpful and courteous. Once when I had an early a.m. departure, I went to the lounge a bit early, before the buffet had been set up. A staff member apologized and asked what I wanted and proceeded to go downstairs to the restaurant and prepared a plate for me.

no direct RER-lines connecting CDG to downtown Paris - just métro (but some of them skip some stations).

I agree with all Hilton commentaries above (comfort, upgrade, swimming/sauna).

Nice hotel, but a bit far to use as a Paris base. Big upgraded room and lounge use ( lounge was all smoking, unfortunately). Very strange on our last trip. Hotel empty. We were the only people at an untouched breakfast buffet with a hundred empty tables around us. But it was just a week after Sept 11, so I'm sure it's not that way anymore.

It's one of the most enjoyable hotels in the world. It's a 30 to 40 minute train ride, but trains are there every few minutes. And the station is 200 feet from the Hotel. You probably need to take the train anyway in Paris-what's a few extra minutes. You be glad the day you arrive not to have to trek into the city with your bags. And the same thing when you leave Paris.

Actually, it is a direct RER B line, although not non-stop. I fully agree with every single positive comment in this thread.

Just checked-out this morning. We arrived yesterday at 10:15am and they checked-us in without any problems. As Gold, was upgraded to a corner room (560) Staff was great, the dinner buffet was fabulous. In complete agreement with the positive comments. Highly recommend it.

This is stay number 7 at Hilton this year. Am i gonna reach the Nirvana of Diamond?

The Hotel is real nice and much like an good American Hotel. However, the trip to the city is a good 30 to 40 minutes. The problem is that the euro is getting high and the trip is getting very expensive. I believe it may cost somewhere between 15 to 20 dollar a day, and for two people, it's may run close to 40 dollars.

However, if you get the right train, it does go direct from CDG1 to Gare du Nord. From there, you are only 5-10 minutes from Saint Michel.
