Thanks everyone...i guess i am doing this late...the only rooms i find for 100 euros a night are really bare bones - we're definitely spoiled in the states with size and comfort in hotel rooms.
The Hotel Claude Bernard for 240 Euros for a quad looks best so far.
Also, Willtravel - isn't Novotel a chain like Hilton???
Is A/C a must for June in Paris?

Yes, Novotel is a chain. Most of the Novotels are air-conditioned, but not all.

HI travelinmom, I know that the Claude Bernard has A/C. I think the weather varies from year to year in the sense that sometimes it has been extremely hot in Paris in June. I decided that we needed A/C and so only looked at hotels with that.
Wish I could help with info on the novotel, but I can't.
I did not consider an apartment for our three nights because it is our first trip to Paris, (my second but I was only 15 on the other one) and none of us speak French. I thought it would be much easier to have helpful hotel people around
I hope you find a hotel that is suitable. I know the Claude Bernard was recommended here and in a Frommers book so that is why I picked it. The Hilton points were something we realized we had later and then booked that instead. Much cheaper to only have to pay for one night.
So, good luck!

I would definitely look for hotels with AC. There's a good chance you'll need it.

On another note, have you checked tripadvisor? Hotel Valadon is highly recommended and I remember reading about it in a post here, too. There are also zillions of others for under $200/room.

Yes, I agree, if you end up in a hotel, then check to see if they provide a fridge. I, unfortunately, have never at any hotel I've been in, in Paris...over a 32-year period...been provided a fridge. It was a REAL inconvenience when I last took my mom two years ago since she has certain food needs. So, this time I'm renting an apartment. Happy Travels!
