Introduction

Having a late(ish) arrival into Charles de Gaulle airport, I stuck with what I knew – and booked a room at the Hilton. I’d stayed here a couple of years ago and was pretty impressed, so I had no hesitation booking a room once more.

Impressive lobby area

Unusually, I checked in online on this occasion. I had done it a couple of times previously and didn’t really see all that much point in it. However, I decided to give it another go to see if things worked a little better this time around. When I arrived at the hotel, it was the same situation as before though – rather than “simply swinging by the front desk ad grabbing my key”, it was the usual case of swiping cards, checking ID, filling out forms… oh and I was given a completely different room to the one I selected, although this wasn’t an issue in the slightest as I was given a room identical to the one I had selected.

Main Room

The room itself wasn’t too much different from what I remembered – despite being upgraded to an executive room. So it would appear that in this hotel at least, an executive room gives you lounge access but not too much else. It featured a large bed and a sofa in the corner, along with a work desk.

Bathroom

The bathroom was decently sized, featuring both a bath and a shower stall.

Amenities

The usual amenities featured in the bathroom, but I do have to say the presentation was lacking somewhat.

Also a generously stocked minibar was present and the standard tea/coffee tray.

Lounge

The lounge was on the ground floor, opposite the reception area. It wasn’t that brilliant, featuring just a few drinks and snacks when I paid a visit. I did take a look at breakfast the following morning but the options were again a little limited – so instead I ate in the restaurant.

In Conclusion

Again, a good enough stay in this hotel. The location is decent – just a few steps from the CDGVAL shuttle train that takes you to all the terminals and more importantly the train station that takes you to central Paris. The bed was very comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. One minor niggle was the presentation of the room – the bathroom amenities looked like they had just been thrown on the side and also there was a random coat hanger on the floor? But thats just me being a little on the picky side really.
