    I would try contacting the Visitors' Bureau, or a similar tourism-centered organization.  They might have a local magazine, brochures, or that kind of thing to add.  They also sometimes have pens, notepads and other goodies.

    Here's the way we did Chicago wedding gift bags for all the out of town guests.. we did the water bottles too but the biggest hit was the weekend itinerary and list of things to do in the city... everyone loved them: http://www.celebrationideasonline.com/wedding-gift-bags-for-out-of-town-guests.html

    Magnets might be nice, if your guests are the kind that like magnets.

    Bottles of water, snacks, and a very good local spice are also going into mine.

    If it fits within your budget, include some local wine for couples who enjoy wine. I live in Indianapolis, and we're including a bottle from our favorite winery in southern Indiana. And if you have any coupons for restaurants or attractions close to the hotel, those would probably be appreciated.
