Where should I stay during Gay Pride in Paris?

- I'm not interested in spending a lot of money to stay in Paris for the weekend. (~$150 USD/night)
- I don't plan to spend much time in my hotel room at all, and I'm adventurous and not too picky. Therefore, it need not be a masterpiece of hospitality. (But I hope to declare a bit of wine and cheese at customs - not bedbugs, thanks.)
- Will just be gallivanting with no particularly set schedule. (Check in on Friday June 24, check out on Monday June 27.)
- Young, able-bodied, solo traveler with enough French to get by.

Hotel Castex (Flash, sorry). I don't know the parade route, but it's in le Marais and it's a block from a Metro station with 3 lines that will take you anywhere you want to go. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the room was spotless. There's a free continental breakfast.

Best answer: If you're not looking for the lap of luxury, I once stayed with a friend for a few nights in a great, clean, super-convenient studio flat listed on I have no idea if it's near the stuff you're looking for, but it was in general amazingly centrally located. MeMail me if you're interested!
