Downtown Hotel

While a hotel, or even a motel, downtown would be quite nice, where would one go?

The original plan for the Student Center called for attaching a hotel, staffed by hospitality students, to the west side of the building. Doing that now, of course, would require bulldozing large sections of Thompson Woods, which I doubt the administration would approve.

A few years ago, a developer proposed putting a hotel on the empty space just south of PK's. Nothing ever happened with that which is just as well, since I cannot see people coming in visiting SIUC or Memorial Hospital particularly enjoying the view of the Strip from their hotel windows.
