I like this idea. Frequently I hold events at the Embassy Suites Central, and this way people could take the train to the area easier when they fly in.

They are already generally connected - one can jump on the Flyer from a block away from the downtown Red Line stop.  But the schedule matching with the Flyer doesn't work out for a lot of the train runs.  Maybe some adjustments to the timing of the Flyer are possible?  Or it could be rerouted to Saltillo Plaza before it hits 7th.

Good idea, and one that you can already do.  The Downtown Station is on the same block as the Route 100 Airport Flyer,   Route 100.  The bus stop is on 5th Street (between Trinity and Neches) and the Downtown MetroRail Station is at 4th Street (between Trinity and Neches).  Give it a try the next time you're heading for the airport. 

We are are considering a new schedule for the Flyer, so keep your eye out for that soon.
