Les Jardins du Marais hotel is on a great little street in the 11th, right on the edge of the Marais and the Place des Vosges (five minutes on foot). Completely renovated and updated in 2004 with an Art Deco theme, the hotel looks small when you first enter the lobby, then you see the amazing courtyard garden through the restaurant’s glass conservatory windows. The hotel is made up of all of the buildings surrounding the courtyard, including the historically listed workshop of Gustave Eiffel, so all rooms have a view of the greenery and statues. The business center and fitness center opened after I visited, so I haven’t seen them yet. Rooms have A/C, WiFi, and pay movies. Some rooms have a mini kitchen. 201 rooms, 64 suites.  Doubles  €150- €180.
