I think that there is a fair degree of agreement that staying somewhere central is the way to go.

Relais Saint Germain...the restaurant there is great (Le Comptoir) and you get priority there as a hotel guest. Odeon Metro stop is right around the corner. It's close to everything.

I would stay in Paris and take day trips, but I loved Reims.

I have stayed at the Lutece and loved it. We will be in Paris late Sept. and are renting an apartment this time on the Ile Saint Louis. The location is perfect.

Probably coming in too late with this, but since i am up late... nosing around the US forum (planning a little overnight getaway to Ojai, from Los Angeles)...

...and I am fairly confident in recommending (I was last there in 2007).

Though I must say, with any trip to a major city, it really does seem like the homework has to be done fresh every time, unless price is no object. The best value may be a special offer, or the place that seems just perfect might not have a room for the dates you need.

Or maybe I just like the puzzle-solving aspect of laying out a couple dozen choices amd whittling down!

And I really would recommend getting away for a night or two, even with (just) a seven night trip to Paris and the Ile de France. Chartres is so worthwhile and very close/easy to reach. Making a second choice depends on whether you have an interest in indulging a fantasy overnight - - consider for example though I have not been there for a decade (still, I think they are keeping up with the well-heeled clientele who seek such things - - the website now offers Chinese, as well as English!)

Or Giverny.

Or just browse an hour (or two) away, looking at all the choices at - - I would suggest looking at Yvelines (click on Ile de France to get started).

Best wishes,

Our family likes the Hotel Relais Bosquet while it's not particularly historic it is very comfortable. Some rooms with Eiffel Tower view.

If I had your budget I would try the Hotel de l'Abbaye. It's built around a courtyard which provides charm and probably quiet.

Trains make many destinations easy daytrips from Paris. Our favorite has been Chartres.
