We booked four nights at the Hotel Residence Foch for early January. We stayed in two double rooms initially as there were no suites/family rooms available and then switched for our second night. Wowee! Having a large bedroom and a separate bedroom for the kids (each with it's own TV and a proper door to separate the two) meant bedtime was a doddle. The enormous bathroom with twin sinks and a shower head the size of a large dinner plate was also useful. It's great being able to open a window in the bathroom to let out steam.
The continental buffet breakfasts were fine as we had a New Year package which meant they were included in the cost - though there are lots of local restaurants nearby, a deli/boulangerie a few minutes walk away and two supermarkets nearby. The nearest Metro stations are within a 7 minute walk and get you across town (eg to The Marais) in around 20 minutes.
The bed was super comfy and we bought HDMI cables for our laptop to allow us to watch DVDs on the hotel's flatscreen TV. The mini fridge is well stocked but there's enough room to store any groceries you may pick up.
Everyone who works at the Foch is super lovely - no matter what time of the day or night, they are happy to help, extremely polite and always full of smiles. The neighbourhood is quiet compared to other parts of Paris, but very handy for the Arc du Triomphe, Champs d'Elysee & Eiffel Tower (walking distance, or a short Metro trip).
Paris is January is terrific - a lot less crowded than other times of the year, and no colder than London. We went up the Eiffel Tower for €16 (family of 4) and didn't have to queue. Also recommend the Museum of Magic in The Marais for kids aged 7+.
