The metro there is called Hôtel de Ville and you can't walk underground
to Châtelet (or
anywhere else).

You certainly can. I've done it. I'm not talking about the Hôtel de
Ville metro station. I'm talking about the small entrance that says

you'll find yourself walking
... halfway across Paris underground to get to the actual station.

It sounds much better in French, but then, everything does.
