Just saw Aloft has rooms and they're $179. If you're trying to do it up right I would make that reservation (you can always cancel). The other major hotels will most likely be a lot higher than that if they even have rooms.
Thanks RR, I feel like you are the master splinter of knowing traveling poo.

Hotels on game days tend to fill up pretty quickly so don't wait too long to book. There are plenty of good places to stay in Uptown - I just suggested aloft because you'll be right in the mix of a ton of bars and restaurants that will be fun if you haven't already experienced them several 100 times like locals have. Plus it's right beside the arena if there's a Hornets game the weekend you decide to come.
Happy to point you in the right direction if you have specific things you're looking to do.
