I'd appreciate hearing how Jamie, or anyone else, liked Maison Dupuy. My wife and I are having NO withdrawals and plan to go down sometime in the next month or two. We've recently stayed at the Monteleone (dingy; even being only steps from Acme isn't enough), a cottage at Maison de Ville (everyone must do this at least once!), and the Royal Orleans (probably the best value of the three; tiny rooms but great location).
The Maison Dupuy always seems to have good rates. We stopped in the lobby last time we were there and it looked nice, but the Monteleone is a great example of how that can be deceiving. Can anyone comment, or know any other good values we should check? All monies saved on lodging will be applied directly to food!
