There is an active taxiway right next to the hotel, and if you are a plane-watcher, you will enjoy the airport/airplane views. Some rooms have fantastic views of CDG Terminal 2; other rooms overlook Terminal 1 (the original/old terminal). The rooms have been updated and feature "the Sofitel Bed" with great linens, pillows, etc.
The hotel has only one restaurant, which is expensive and features a "very French" menu with an emphasis on seafood. The bar by the lobby has been redecorated and offers sofas as well as tables to sit at--a good place to work during the day if you want to get out of your room. There is a wireless Internet capability in the rooms, which my colleagues had trouble using.
The hotel’s Executive Floor was a good attempt at providing premium service to businessmen, but I found the executive lounge on the eighth floor to have poor ventilation, the continental breakfast expensive, and the service suffocatingly inefficient (whether you just wanted some water, coffee, or some yogurt, the staff took a long time to get it, and then went through an agonizing ordeal to present it to you). Several times during my stay, the elevators took forever to appear.
The bottom line for me was that this hotel was expensive, isolated by freeways, and physically and mentally stuffy.
