Getting from CDG airport to the 17e in Paris with luggage
I'm new to this forum. I'm over 50 and looking for a way to get from the CDG airport to the 17e arrondissement next weekend without taking a taxi or the Metro. I'll be having a bit of a hard time handling my luggage.
I probably cannot afford a taxi but I've heard there is a bus from the airport to certain Metro stations in Paris (I arrive early Sunday morning). Can anyone offer me some advice about this? (perhaps I could get close and then hail a cab from that point, or take a short Metro ride?)
Any advice is appreciated.

What you want is the Air France bus into Paris and then a taxi from the terminal to your hotel.

Air France shuttle or RoissyBus, then a taxi. If you tell us the hotel or address, someone will be able to give you exact instructions.

It is the Hotel Prince Albert Wagram, 28 Passage Cardinet, 75017, Paris

saiken - I will never take the metro to my hotel ever again - too many steps. Good news for you is there is a bus just outside Gare de Nord number 31 from the Magenta, Maubeuge,Gare de Nord stop, which goes right by your hotel along rue Jouffroy. Bus 53 also passes at the same stops but does not go to Gare de Nord. All you have to do is take the RER from the airport to the station and lug your case a few yards to the bus stop.
We have just stayed in the 17th a bit further along in rue des Dames and took the bus everywhere.
