Hotel at CDG night before flight home

We are three couples who will be spending two weeks in Paris and Normandy this May-June. We will be returning to Paris from our week in Normandy for a flight home the morning of June 5. We think it makes sense to stay in a hotel near the airport the night before the flight. Does anyone have experience staying near or at CDG? Would love any suggestions.
Thanks!

There are a lot of options right at the airport. What's your per-night budget in euros?

We stayed at the Hilton CDG, typical business style US hotel, good enough.

We have several times stayed at the Ibis right AT (not near) the airport -- basic Ibis, walk to the CDGVAL free train to terminals. Our dining choice is McDonald's ... fast, cheap (for CDG), reliable.

In October 2019, we stayed at the Citizen M CDG. The price was right and it was an easy walk to the CDGVAL station. But the hotel seemed like it was trying way too hard to be trendy.

We'll stay at the Hilton next time.

We have stayed at the ibis hotel at that airport a couple of times and will be again in May. We usually stay at that chain when we overnight before heading back to the US. Inexpensive, very small rooms, good food, and be sure to join their Frequent Stayer Club before you ever stay at one of their hotels as it has advantages and expedited checkin.

The Ibis is right at the hotel and easy to get to and cheap. We've only stayed there once. We usually stay and the Sheraton inside the airport. Its very nice and very convenient but twice the price -- but we think its worth it.

The Hilton is very adequate. Large American style rooms and actual efficiently working AC. We thought their main restaurant was pretty decent overall and sure beat anything we were going to find over towards the terminals since we didn’t want/need to go into the city at that point. Airport shuttle is available for the morning to get you were you need to go.

Last year we stayed at the Ibis Budget Roissy CDG Paris Nord 2. It was about €120 for a double, with breakfast included. The room was small but clean; the breakfast was not very good. There's a free shuttle bus to and from the airport. Some of the other hotels right at the airport will be nicer and more convenient, but it was hard to beat the price of this one. There is one pretty good restaurant quite near the hotel, an easy walk.

This is so helpful! Thanks to everyone for your replies. We think we'll look into the Hilton as it seems to have gotten several positive mentions here. Merci beaucoup!

We have stayed twice at the Novotel Paris CDG Hotel and it is located within the terminal building (or directly adjacent to Terminal 3, no need to go outdoors to get into the terminals) and it could not be more convenient for access to the CDGVAL shuttle that connects to the other terminals. Also this hotel has a great breakfast buffet.

We also once stayed at one of the hotels in nearby Roissy that you have to catch a shuttle to get from/to the terminals, and that can be a nuisance as the shuttle busses are shared by other hotels and busses are often full in the mornings. I will never again stay anywhere but within the airport - stress free on the day of your onward travel.

If you will arrive at CDG via car rental, plane, or train (like TGV) on the day before your onward flight, it is a no-brainer to stay at a hotel in the airport proper rather than finding where you catch and then take a shuttle to some hotel, and making that hassle filled return the following day. I learned this the hard way after dropping off a rental at CDG, and then struggling to find the hotel shuttle stop, and having to wait nearly 45 minutes for the proper bus to my hotel in Roissy. The busses are color coded for which hotel route is being run, but on the day we used it, there was something screwed up about their system and we had to ask the driver of each bus if it was going to our hotel...

We h ave stayed a few times at the Hotel IBIS AT CDG and will be staying there again later this year. It is easy to get to from Paris on the RER and likewise easy to get to the CDG shuttle train in the morning.

We stayed two times at the Sheraton, which is located inside the Terminal at 2E. Very convenient for our American Airlines flight.

Thanks again all. We have now decided to stay at a hotel near Gare Lazare, which is the train station we'll be coming into after six days in Normandy. The Grande Hotel de Normandie got great reviews and we snagged a "sale" for $170/room. We like the idea of having one last evening in Paris before heading home. Our flights are late morning/early afternoon so we'll plan to use their shuttle accordingly.
Merci a tout!

Deborah, that sounds like a good idea. We struggled last year, balancing "one last night in Paris" with the convenience of staying near the airport. Convenience won, and I don't regret it. Much.

We stayed in the Novotel CDG in December and it was perfect for us. Room was well-equipped and very clean. Nice dinner and breakfast. Actually, if I recall dinner was better than nice...surprisingly excellent for an airport hotel. Great lounge with a very talented bartender. Will stay there again next trip to Paris...it was so nice not to stress about traffic on our way from central Paris to CDG for our 10:30am flight. So sweet to just check out, walk out the back door of the lobby, and into the terminal.

Thanks to those who mentioned the Sheraton. I booked our last night there since our plane in September is scheduled to leave at 7:30am. The convenience of just going to our terminal was worth a bit extra cost.

I stayed at the Sheraton at CDG twice this past May (mid-trip, when we were dropped off at CDG at the end of a multi-day tour, and then again a few days later before flying home the next morning). The room was huge, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel restaurant was excellent. I would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises.

I’m glad you decided to spend your last night in Paris - I’ve never bothered with staying out at airport even when it’s meant getting a taxi at 6 am to get to airport lol I can understand if someone has a super early flight however / like before 9 am .

We stayed at the Hilton also. There are several hotels adjacent to it. Nice thing is that even though the freeway to the airport was totally jammed, they have a back way to get to the airport that only takes 10 minutes.
