I have attached their web site and all you have to do is type is Paris for the city and France for the country and ask them to list all hotels available.
The Courtyards should be reasonable for Paris and they are generally very safe

Paul, Marriott only has two facilities with a Paris address. Others are a few miles outside of Paris. For the New York comparison from above, staying in Manhattan is what's expensive -- you could stay in Jersey City, NJ right across the river and directly on a public transportation line for one-third to one-half the price of a Manhattan hotel room, but you are not "in the city."
My understanding of Paris is much the same way. You could be only 5 miles from "downtown," but you are not "in the city."
Of course, if you are recommending Marriott facilities in Paris, I would have no beef with recommending the Marriott Champs Elysees (the equivalent to the Marriott Marquis in NYC -- except with white glove treatment!). Of course, a room there will run you upwards of $600/night USD.
Also, one of the Courtyard facilities "in" Paris is the one at CDG Airport. While it has been SOME time since I have been there, I don't remember the area around the airport as one of particular safety. The hotel, itself, may be safe, but if you want to get anywhere to/from there, you need to be conscious of the surroundings.
