Just come back from a long weekend in Paris with friends. The Deauville was just great. It's convenient, for the metro and the shops; it's pretty quite, very clean and the staff are polite and helpful. Some rooms are a bit on the small size - but that's pretty much par for the course in big cities. There's plenty of hot water and baths as well as a shower which is just great for a soak after pounding the streets all day. The lift is a very intimate experience!!
A tip for middle aged types like us - get a shuttle from the airport as it saves lugging suitcases around the metro/RER or the buses - it's worth every cent of the 16 euros a head that it costs (or only around 17-18 euros for a private shuttle).
Some very good restaurants in the area, too - the Bistro des Deux Theatres is particularly good value.
