What can you expect to see from either? Well, naturally keep your eyes peeled for the Air France A380, but it's also a perfect spot to catch Africa and Middle East-bound airlines using Paris as a convenient European hub.
We should warn you that hotels are three-dimensional buildings, so you should always ask for a room facing the airport, highest floor possible. That way you don't end up facing the parking lot, or a wall, or on the second level with this view.
