Five minutes from Charles de Gaulle airport and thirty minutes from downtown Paris.
Someone must have forgotten to tell the designer of this hotel that most of the clientele would be jet-lagged airplane crews and irate passengers with missed connections. The futuristic glass architecture, luxurious interior design and warm, multilingual staff are geared more toward the urban traveler than jaded jet-setter. Apollo Restaurant is surrounded by fountains and exotic plants, which ensure an intimate atmosphere, and its contemporary French cuisine compares favorably within the city's dining scene. The Cosmos Bar is a hip meeting venue, perfect for light meals and romantic chats over cocktails. The 388 rooms include 44 Regency Club rooms and a presidential suite which melds American convenience and European elegance. Guest rooms are soundproof and come with individually controlled air-conditioning, king-size beds and huge TVs with a wide variety of programs via international satellite. Other amenities include a spa and gym, jogging paths and free shuttle service to the airport or TGV train station at any hour.
