Triple in Paris for Christmas 2006

Need hotel room in area that is walking distance to most sights or near metro, December 24th through 28th, will be taking the eurostar from London. Family of three adults, would like to spend about 200-250 euros a day. Close to nice restaurants and shopping. Many thanks

My husband, teenage son and I stayed at Hotel Henri IV Rive Gauche and really loved the hotel. It's one block from the Seine and about 2 blocks from Notre Dame. Great staff, clean, large rooms. The triple was very cool because you walk in and there's a twin bed as you enter on the right(looks like a couchette in the day). You walk up 2 steps into the main part of the room with a large bed, plenty of closets and a large bath. There's even a privacy screen you can pull between the 3rd bed and the main part of the room. We stayed in a lot of triples our last few trips but this one had the best layout and privacy.

Have you considered flying instead of taking the train? Even the flights on major airlines like BA or Air France are usually cheaper than the Eurostar these days, and discount airlines are even cheaper. The PITA factor is higher, given the security restrictions applicable in airports these days, but it still might be worth it. If you decide to comparison-shop, don't forget to factor in the cost of transportation to/from the airport/train station. (The Eurostar advantage is that you travel from the centre of one city to nearly the centre of another, and can get to your hotel easily for the price of 3 metro tickets. You'll be looking at taking either the airport express bus or taxi to/from the airport in Paris (taxi might not be a bad deal for 3 people), and tube fare x 3 in London.

I would definitely stick with the Eurostar, 2.5 hours relaxing rather than dealing with the lines and security checks especially around Christmas.
There are lots of great Paris hotels in your price range. offers a jr. suite that might suit you and has a great location as does provides lots of photos of hotel rooms

We have been in Paris over Xmas a few times. We stayed in the 5th one year and at the Marriott on the CdL. The Marriott is centrally located to all shops and restaurants (right near Sephora, Virgin, Zara, Louis, etc)so you shouldn't have a problem finding open restaurants. Metro is right there and can still walk to many places.
