The hotel situation would work very well for competitors, because UVA's Indoor facility (and the presumed location of the new outdoor facility) are a short walk from more than enough hotel rooms that UVA could hold for the NCAAs.
Charlottesville is also undergoing a bit of a hotel boom right now. The City did an analysis of hotel room occupancy rates in the area (they are ridiculously high, well above industry standard). The results of that study have been pushed out to hotel operators, and they are responding. I'd guess there will be an additional 500 rooms in the market by 2015, easy.
The Boars Head Inn prices might be a bit much for most teams budget
