Masked men armed with tear gas arrived in at least two vehicles at the hotel near Charles de Gaulle airport and robbed French, American and Moroccan tourists of their luggage and personal belongings.
French police said investigations were currently being carried out.
The attack is not the first of its kind as the motorway leading to Charles de Gaulle and Le Bourget, Europe’s busiest private jet airport are frequently targeted by thieves.
Last August, around six assailants sprayed tear gas on Chinese tourists outside a hotel near the airport and made off with their luggages.
