We are traveling to Paris in late Sept and as this was an extension of a last minute work trip to France for my husband, we are just now booking our hotel. I have searched high and low and in our price range, I am coming up with the Holiday Inn St. Germain or the Hotel St. Paul Rive Gauche. I've looked at what feels like nearly every hotel in the 5th/6th arr and most are sold out or single rooms. I've also looked extensively at apartments, but very few offer just a 3 night stay.
We'd like to stay at St. Paul over Holiday Inn, but the only option available right now is the small standard double. Can anyone tell me just how small a room it actually is? We really don't plan on being there often, so it's not a huge deal but I'd like to make sure I know fully what we're getting ourselves into if we book.
Location-wise, any advantage to staying at one hotel over the other? Our desire was really to be in the 6th, but I am just striking out everywhere. I'm not against the Holiday Inn, but just feel like I can stay in that sort of hotel anywhere here in the USA, know what I mean?
Any insight you can provide would be much appreciated! :)
