Hmmm. I don't recall ever seeing a "hokey tourist Place" in the Marais which to me means a place with cheap "I love Paris" Tshirts and brass little Eiffel Towers. (Those I've seen in other areas, in Montmartre, on the Champs, and on the Rue de Rivoli near the Louvre). There are mostly hip, trendy shops in the Marais, along with restaurants frequented by locals. Of course there are tourists, Paris is the most touristed city in the world! But I love the 4th.
