Review: Moxy Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG) (2023) [France]
As we had a 17-hour layover after our Air France flight from San Francisco, we stayed at a hotel by CDG. Since the timing of our stay was within the Marriott’s double elite night promotion, we chose the Moxy as it was the cheapest Marriott property within the vicinity. It’s also my first time staying at a Moxy property, so let’s see how it goes!
Moxy Paris CDG- Booking
We stayed two separate nights with the AAA rate averaging at 170 EUR a night. First night is due to the long layover, and the second night is to catch our flight to Doha the next morning just 2 weeks later from the previous stay. Plus, the airport hotel saves us a bit of money since hotels in central Paris can be triple the price!
The room we booked was the Moxyfied Family Sleeper, which was good enough for the 3 of us, and is the highest room category for the property.
Moxy Paris CDG- Location
The hotel is conveniently located near the exit of the airport. The direction to airport hotels are well-pointed by the overhead signs that will lead you to a shuttle specifically for airport hotels. Make sure to look for CDGVAL on the signs as it’s the shuttle that you’ll take to get you to the hotel.
Moxy Paris CDG- Check-in
We arrived some time around 5pm. Just as expected, Moxy hotels have decors that are geared towards the younger demographics.
There’s a neat cutout of the world map, but sadly lacked my favorite lake, the Caspian Sea (RIP Aral Sea).
The reception desk is molded with the Moxy Bar behind. Drawing boards in front show the breakfast buffet menu that cost 28 EUR. Too steep, and most likely not worth it, so we didn’t try. But, I appreciate the One Piece art. It seems very popular in France since I even saw their merchandise in Paris McDonald’s.
Elite welcome bonus choice in Moxy hotels is either 500 points or daily $10 USD food & beverage credit. I chose the points on the first stay, and then the F&B credit for the final stay.
Spoiler alert, choose the F&B credit. In fact, I only ended up using around 8 EUR worth of it on my last stay, but somehow got 20 EUR off the room bill! Unsure if it was just luck or the staff being careless, but it’s worth a try since 500 points is paltry anyway. Also, since EUR is worth more than USD, I got a little bit more than I expected from the daily F&B credit!
Moxy Paris CDG- Moxyfied Family Sleeper
We were assigned to Room 529 on both stays. For the first stay, we didn’t receive any welcome gifts in a room. That’s to be expected, except that we were left with fresh snacks on our final stay on the glass table. Definitely a nice surprise!
The Family Sleeper felt spacious for the three of us with separate rooms for the sofa bed and the main bed. The sofa bed itself felt okay, and I can feel springs underneath here and there. But, they didn’t interrupt my sleep.
Each room comes with a TV.
There’s a Nespresso machine in the room too! No in-room desk, and the glass below is the only “table” available.
The closets have extra pillows and towels. No safe from what I recalled though.
More exterior hangers with luggage rack right to the entrance with avant-garde wallpaper.
The main queen bed is on the room next door (no door to separate). The bed was one of the hardest I’ve felt.
Parking lot as a view.
Bathroom is pretty standard. We found that the sink didn’t drain the water quite well during our stay.
Shower comes with a stool, but the curtains were a bit too short to cover the whole cubicle, so some water ended up flowing out. It was a lot easier to use the shower as a wand also.
The Deep Muk toiletries weren’t half bad.
That pretty much covers the room. Decent room, but had minor bathroom function issues.
Moxy Paris CDG- Fitness Center
The hotel has an adequate gym on the lobby floor.
Moxy Paris CDG- Bar
The bar is on the lobby floor and comes with plenty of hangout space other than the bar counter itself. You can take advantage of your F&B credits here. The bar also has a microwave and coffee machines that are open during certain hours.
There’s also a Grab & Go section to use your F&B credits on. You’ll typically get 1-2 water bottle per day with the credits.
The Moxy is a decent airport hotel by CDG. For typical short stays, they’re enough if you’re just looking for a clean room to sleep in before your next flight. They also offer great economical price for family stays (up to 4 guests) and convenient access to the airport. I wouldn’t mind staying here again as long as they offer competitive price. If you have AAA, make sure to use their rate as they have the best rate with very flexible cancellation policy.
