The deal
Want to zip across the pond this fall? Now is the perfect time to wander the sidewalks of Paris but it’s also the priciest time to visit. So we’ve looked far and wide to find hotel bargains that will save you a bundle. Below is the round-up of the crème de la crème of hotel offers in the City of Lights, suitable for every budget. Rates start at just $85 a night for an overnight in chic Montmartre!

Stay at historic Hotel du Louvre for $366/night
For location, history and top-end facilities, this four-star property is your best bet. Frommer’s writes, “When Napoleon III inaugurated the hotel in 1855, it was described as ‘a palace of the people, rising adjacent to the palace of kings.’ In 1897, Camille Pissarro moved into a room with a view that inspired many of his landscapes.” Situated across the street from the Louvre, this elegant hotel features up-to-date amenities inside the rooms, exquisitely blended with its illustrious past. Rates here have now come down to just $366 a night, if you book through!

Value stay at Burgundy Hotel for $260/night
Housed in a 19th-century building, this property sits just steps away from Champs Elysées. According to Frommer’s, “The Burgundy is one of the best values in this expensive area. The frequently renovated mansion began as two adjacent town houses in the 1830s, one a pension where Baudelaire wrote poetry in the 1860s, the other a bordello.” This cozy hotel features nicely decorated units, each equipped with a full spectrum of in-room trappings. Rack rates typically run north of $300 a night but through, you’ll pay only $260.

Sojourn at Comfort Inn Sacré Coeur for $85/night
If you’re visiting Paris on a shoestring, this is an unbeatable option at the heart of chic Montmartre. While you can’t count on any trimmings at this no-nonsense chain property, you will enjoy 41 modern rooms featuring lovely city views through the large windows. Each unit comes equipped with a spotless private bathroom and the usual selection of basic amenities. As a perk — the whole building is wireless! And don’t forget you’re staying in one of the city’s most fashionable neighborhoods for less than $90 a night.
