We spent a week in Paris two years ago. Stayed at the Paris Hilton. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel offers some nice amenities. It is on the Left Bank and OOH, LA, LA, the doorman oozes charm. Balcony rooms are available (w/view of Eiffel Tower which is very close), but probably pretty pricey.

Versailles is only about a 1/2 hr-45 minute drive from Paris. We enjoyed it very much. The opulence is overwhelming and the gardens are beautiful.
