Location: *** Great location being so close to the terminal.
Spotting: *** With views of the departure runway from the rooms mentioned above, spotting is easy
Photos: * No reports of photo opportunities from the hotel. However, only a 5 minute walk to the recently reopened spectators terrace.

Hilton Paris Orly
is found near the Orly Ouest terminal. A free shuttle bus links the hotel with the airport. The bus runs every 15 minutes between 6am and midnight.  If you get a room at the front of the hotel you will only have views of literally one or two aircraft parked at the South Terminal. However, a room at the back of the hotel will give you views of aircraft parked at the Ouest terminal as well as everything that taxies out for departure on runway 25.
Location: *** Very close to the Ouest (West) terminal and linked by a free shuttle bus.
Spotting: ** Depend whether you get the front or the back of the hotel. Ask for the back of the hotel for the best results.
Photos: *  No reports available.
Value: * Not cheap. A twin room at a weekend is over £100
Book:   To check availability book direct with Hilton

    I’m in the Ibis as i write this – room 435 – facing south. Great view of arrivals, although it appears they are in the early stages of constructing a new building which will likely interfere with the view. Departures on the west-terminal side can be seen, but only when the aircraft is at 2000ft (ish) and hasn’t made an immediate right turn. The windows open fully (at least in my room it does). Wifi is free. You want room 435,439,443,447,451,455,459,463 or 467 to have a similar view to what I have. Closer to 467 is more convenient as there is a window at the end of the hall that allows you to see West terminal action much better. My room (435) is designated smoking and has one large bed. Food is expensive in the hotel – try and stock up at a local supermarket if possible.
