I am new to solo travel and this is only my second international trip (first one was 2019) traveling without a partner. Prior to the 2019 trip I had not traveled to Europe since 2001! So I am a newbie and a bit of nervous Nellie about if I'm booking the right flights with proper amount of time for connections and making those connections (new to that as well as I used to live in Los Angeles where you could pretty much fly non-stop to anywhere) and getting to my hotel in a foreign city and back to the airport for departure.
I would be leaving on a Sunday morning in October for a 9am flight back to Atlanta where I connect to a flight to Tampa. I never thought of staying at an airport hotel the night before departure back to the U.S. until my friend did it when she departed back to the U.S. after the Villages of Italy tour. Most of the forum members are seasoned travelers so I am interested in getting some opinions about staying at an airport hotel the night before for an early morning flight, particularly in regards to this from Paris to CDG on a Sunday morning.
