As well as being a mecca for tourists, Paris is also a business destination which means that some of the hotels that cater for business people (for example those near exhibition centres and by the airports and train stations) will be cheaper at weekends and you can get more hotel for your money. In general, most business people are looking to be home for the weekend leaving these large hotels with great facilities relatively empty. The pay-off of course is that these types of hotels are usually not in the main tourist areas but as you might expect, they are usually well connected by public transport.
As with booking flights, flexibility is most definitely the key when securing the best hotel deals. Other than just considering the days of the week for travel, it is worth looking a few days either side of your preferred dates as this can save you significant amounts of money.
If you are flexible and if you want a good hotel but don't want to pay the earth for it, why not consider staying slightly further from the centre? A city like Paris has an excellent transport infrastructure which is relatively cheap to use. This means that you can often end up staying in a more peaceful part of the city in a nice hotel for a fraction of what you might spend on a lesser quality city centre hotel. The types of accommodation also increase as you go further out meaning that you may be able to get a good deal on a guest house or small hotel in the suburbs that you would not find in a more central location.
