I posted in the GR development thread I have going, you can add a Riverfront Staybridge Suites to the list of downtown hotel rooms even though it's in a somewhat awkward location.

Interesting article about hotel rates downtown. Whether or not they actually go down after more of these hotels open remains to be seen. Current occupancy is still at record highs and they are leaving some convention business on the table as there aren't enough rooms.
