Paris - Hotels in July

Jump to last reply

First, apologies for casting a very wide, and very early net. I am hoping Fodorites can help me narrow my search a bit.

My husband and I were last in Paris in March, 2006 and are looking to return in July, 2013 to celebrate our 10th anniversary. On our last trip, we stayed at the Hotel du Champs de Mars. We loved the location, the service, and could deal with the small rooms (although the shower left much to be desired).

For this trip, I am torn between the familiar and branching out, mostly because of the multitude of options. Here is what we are looking for:

1) Some character - would prefer to stay away from brand name properties we can get in the US.

2) A rate between $250 and $350 a night in July.

3) An area that is conducive to strolling during the day or night, with access to things to see (cafes, shops, etc), more so than proximity to the big name attractions.

4) Because it's a big anniversary, some element of luxury (even some extra space) would be nice.

5) At least a double bed and en suite bathroom.

We are fairly comfortable with public transportation, so as long as we have quick access to that, we will be set for visiting the big sites. And, we are experienced with traveling in Europe, so we do not necessarily need to stay in tourist-centric locales.

Any help you can offer in pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated, as would specific suggestions. It's been far too long since I've been in France, so I feel like I am staring up a very tall mountain!

Thank you in advance!
