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.
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!).
Programs: I used to be Plat, but now I'm not. Now I'm just Gold. Lucky if I keep that.

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.
Programs: Everything and everywhere. Officially a nomad
The CDG Hilton is great if you have an early flight, but not if you want to see Paris. It is right on the airport property, one of the really good airport Hiltons IMO (food, club lounge, shuttle service). But it's about 30 minutes from the city by tain and you will see nothing other than airport if you stay there.
It's actually a very nice hotel, but I second the opinion above. Even if you catch one of the Express RER trains it's about 45 mins to Gare du Nord and late at night, I think the trains are a bit dodgy (even when there are Police on board with sub-machine guns).
The Paris Hilton is a much better location to see the city.
