I found this link which does travel and accomodation from 99 pounds per person in March.

However I could not find where it picks people up from.

Ryan Air are doing really cheap flights to Paris at the moment.
I priced some up flying from East Midlands, and it was 40 for two of us, return, including all the taxes etc.
I booked a hotel online and paid about 40.

You don't have to spend loads when you get there either, there are places to eat to suit all budgets.

Walking would be the cheapest way.

Although obviously not the quickest...

Try lastminute.com.
I don't know your budget but some friends of mine are coming over for Christmas (23-26/12) by plane for 186 each - 3 nights in a 3 star hotel (Montparnasse = loads to do/see) including flights. If you book just the flight from Manchester it's at least 110. You must take time to work out what you want to do and where you want to go - the hotels often give an address which seems closer to the "heart of things" than they really are. I would suggest plane from Birmingham or East Midlands. With Eurostar you have the change in London, with coach, forget it - you will arrive more tired than you left - it's not worth the price difference. It is far cheaper to do an "all-in package" than doing things separately. When I went to the hotel my friends are staying in they couldn't get over what they were paying for the package as they charge 90 (not euros) a night...

Budget coaches, about 15-20 quid each way London Victoria to Paris

You'd have to swim a bit too

Paris hotels can be expensive, and often for something no better than a Uni bedsit. It may not have much romance, but you ar best staying with the budget chain hotels to avoid any nasty surprises.

There is a Campanile at Porte d'Italie that is quite nice, and low cost. There is another at Place d'Italie that is a bit spooky, IIRC. Ibis at La Defense may be a good bet too...
