Work dinner, will I make it?

Landing CMB-CDG at 1920, and have a work dinner at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris at 2130. I will be in J with zero checked bags, only hand luggage. Can anyone chime in how long (typically) I should expect to take to deplane and make it curbside for a taxi on a Friday evening?

I'd say your odds are pretty good. With no bag checked, front of plane, you should clear customs fairly quickly. The ride from CDG to the Park Hyatt (nice choice) should be a little over an hour.

Last time I was in CDG (a few months ago) it took an hour from getting off the plane (in J) to taxi pickup. It definitely felt longer, with the hot and cramped bus ride from the ramp to customs. I did have to wait for a checked bag, too. So you should be fine.

You should be able to make it. I would check the estimated time for traffic -- Motorcycle taxis can be faster if you don't have much luggage.

Did this same jaunt a few weeks back. Even with a slow start to customs, at the same rough time of night, made it in 1 hour and 30 minutes. I didnt push it on speed either.

To clarify, was it 1 hour 30 min to the taxi stand or to the Park Hyatt?

From door opening on my plane to door opening on my taxi at the PH.

Looking at my watch data, it was 1 hour and 33 minutes - I cant promise any reasonably accurate precision beyond that!

On a side note, how was the PH? My wife will be with me, and Im hoping I made a good pick for accommodations. (Both our first time in Paris)

It's very nice, although it doesn't get the best reviews over in the Hyatt forum these days.

I am a very poor performing Globalist, having switched to booking on RocketMiles to maximize my AA LP. Despite this was given an upgrade, greeted by name when walking in, got all the expected amenities and treated very well. I know this is considered an abnormal stay per the FT Hyatt sub but I had a splendid time.
