TGV to Paris from Stuttgart, best place for a 1 night stay?

I will be taking a TGV from Stuttgart to Paris and will be there for 1 night (we arrive at 2pm and leave at 10:30am the day later).
What would be the best place to stay near the Paris EST Train station so that I can cover the major tourist attractions and still save money? Is there a hop-on hop-off bus which picks up closer to a certain hotel so we can cover the tourist attractions?

I like the Hotel Soft in rue des Vinaigriers, which is in easy walking distance from Est.

Are you going back to Stuttgart the next day? In other words, leaving from the same station in Paris that you arrived at?

The reason I ask is that I would want to be closer to my departure station than my arrival station, especially as you morning train is just after breakfast.

You can't "cover" the major tourist attractions in an afternoon (or a day, or a week) unless you count looking at them through a bus window. Your few hours might be better spent at one major place. See it thoroughly, followed by a nice meal and early-to-bed. Once you have made the choice of where to spend the time, Google Maps will show you hotels in the vicinity. Or you can choose a hotel that's handy to your place of departure.
