I typed an invisible "e"; that goes with the silent "e".

You do not say, "Bonjour, madame," when you leave an establishment, you say, "Au revoir."

All Paris hotel rooms are not as small as you expect. The rooms are a generous size at hotels like Plaza Athenee, George V, and the Crillon.

Not everyone is a peasant. 👑

Thin, aristocrat 💍

Peasant here, from a long line of peasants. We stayed at the Hotel du Palais Bourbon, where we had a triple, and there were other larger rooms. We love this location in the 7th. At least it's the part of the 7th that's closer to the 6th.

2 hotel rooms would be a lot easier to find. With the perk that the 3 of you don't have to all share a bathroom.

And since you keep saying you won't spend any time there, two ~$150/night rooms shouldn't be impossible to come up with in your chosen area.

Je vous souhaite bien le bonjour madame when you take leave us acceptable. In times that were more aristocratic it was more used than au revoir which is by itself absurd towards strangers that you will likely never see again.

Is it possible that the person in the shop might be a Monsieur, especially in a café or tabac?

When leaving, I find it is more common for people to wish each other a good day, bonne journée.

Your French may be better than mine, but my English is better than yours: i.e., 1157€/night isn't even close to OP's desired $300/night
Signed, tomboy, peasant

Sheesh, try to give someone a tip to learn a few French phrases, and the boo-birds come out to soil the windshield with their "be sure to take 2 years of French before you leave" message

aristocrats should aristocrats should all learn french and leave local languages to peasants or otherwise uneducated people.
