Just a question, I guess, teadrinker. Your original post in February said March was when they were going. Can I assume it's March 2010? Also, were they going to all three in one week, or one week each? It would make a big difference in rec's from me, anyway, as an apartment in each for one week would be convenient and a little cheaper, but not so if you were doing three countries in one week.

Dear yk and aperuader65 - I wanted to thank you both for your responses - yk, we'll look for the wallpaper guide for Paris if we need further help after tomorrow - we'd like to settle on something by the end of tomorrow afternoon. We aren't looking at high end accommodations - somewhere in the middle-range - and thank you for the link, we'll check into it.
apersuader, I'm sorry, if I said March, I meant May - and it's 2009, in just about a month and a half from now! I'm sorry, that was a mistake on my part.

They're going for total of 8 nights, so it'a a quick trip - 3 nights in Amsterdam, 3 in Paris, & 2 in London.

We are very fortunate to have 4 happy, healthy, wonderful kids. I am most proud of the fact that, first and foremost, they are kind and thoughtful. Second, I know that they do not take this trip for granted. I know they are truly grateful for this unique opportunity. At this moment, they may feel that our gift to them is a gift of travel, and it is, but what we're really giving them is the gift of spending time together for one brief time before they move off onto their own separate paths. I think they'll come to realize the true meaning of this trip sometime way down the road, when they' find themselves immersed in jobs and family life, and look back and reflect upon this time.
Enough said. Whatever hotel she picks in Paris will no doubt be just fine. It can be confusing, with all the arrondisements and choices, that's why we came to Fodors, for a little direction - thanks again.

Thank you.

I think the Marais area is great -- One hotel we used to stay in (b4 switching to apts) was Hotel de la Bretonnerie
