I've stayed at the Hyatt and the Millenium multiple times at really good rates.
I stayed there a couple of years ago, and while I had a clean room with only one slight problem--the lock on the outside door was broken--I talked to several others who had come for Reds' games that told me there were bugs in their room and their rooms weren't exceptionally clean. Given that and what I've read here, I decided not to visit there again.
btw, that same visit featured a stop at a fast food place in Newport where I listened to a couple of guys talk about all the crimes they had committed and future plans for similar activities. Don't know how typical that is, but I didn't go back to that section of town either.
