I stay in the 8th for business once or twice/year, and have found small hotels there that are good value and nicely Parisienne. The Bradford Elysées is at the end of a short, narrow street, across from a nice restaurant (Marloe), and near the Champs Elysées. It has an old-style cage elevator right out of a black-and-white movie from the 40's. The rooms are small (it is Paris) but relatively quiet. The breakfast is good and the staff are cheerful and ready to help. The Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, with its classy shops is quite nearby and a metro stop, Saint-Philippe-du-Roule, is just two blocks away. The hotel is part of a chain, but doesn't feel like it.
Depends where in Paris you want to be, but you could do a lot worse!
