My husband and I are travelling to Paris for the first time in May'14 after 2 weeks in UK. We will spend a week in Paris then join a small tour to the regional wine areas. I've now done so much research on hotels, areas to stay etc that I am now totally confused about what to do and where to stay. Our budget is AUS$400 - $500 per night. The Marais district has been recommended to us but I am unsure. As this is our first visit we plan to do all of the touristy things eg Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Seine boat cruise, Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, plenty of walking, some shopping, some people watching etc etc. I admit to being pretty fussy in terms of cleanliness, presentation etc in a hotel and I don't want to stay in a cookie cutter hotel room that could be any where. I'm thinking about the Hotel Georgette but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
