I'm a RS follower and have been for years, but had to share a negative experience (the first) at his recommended Grand Hotel Leveque. We were wrongly charged for "breaking a headboard lamp" after we left ($90), when it was likely done by the staff when they moved the extra beds out of our tiny room. We do have 2 children (thus the quadruple room and extra beds), but we were barely in the room given the fact that we were out seeing Paris all day each day.
The room was already in disrepair - one window would not stay closed and the bedside "tables" were falling apart. The bathroom was not clean and we had to ask for hand soap. I recommend that a different hotel be listed in the RS Paris guidebook; I believe they are profiting greatly from those of us who trust your suggestions (and I still do) and doing little to appreciate the guests who flock there.
This was my first experience like this with any hotel, much less one we chose out of a RS book. Just wanted to share and encourage you to find a better place to stay!
