Siberia? Nyet. Not this time. Not really. Florida delegates and alternates to the 2016 Republican National Convention have been assigned to one of two hotels located a 25-minute bus ride away from Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena -- the Embassy Suites Hotel Cleveland -- Rockside (primary hotel) and Courtyard by Marriott Cleveland Independence.
