Baden Baden hotel suggestions?

We are having a get together in Baden Baden in October with our German relatives. It will be a short family ceremony to dedicate a memorial bench at the cemetery in Baden Ost where my husband's grandparents are buried. Most of our relatives will be driving in for the day from Germany but my father in law will be flying in from the U.S. and we'll be driving from Brussels, so a few of us need overnight accommodations.
Any hotel suggestions? We'd like to find a nice, comfortable hotel, preferably next to a park. *Not* in the center of Baden Baden, we'd rather be on the outskirts.
Nothing fussy or too "quaint"--we're not really into that (i.e., we'd prefer a hotel to a small B & B).
Last time we were there we stayed at a motel next to an autobahn rest stop. It was surprisingly pleasant, set well back from the highway among the trees, and we wouldn't mind staying there again, but are open to other suggestions for places with more atmosphere.
Price range of up to $175 per room (double), breakfast included.

Oops, my husband says it's Baden Oos, not Baden Ost.

BTilke - this is my wife's hometown and she has these suggestions for you:

Steigenberger Badischer Hof, in Baden-Baden

Schlosshotel Buhlerhohe, on the Schwarzwald Hochstrasse, near Baden-Baden

Hotel Burg Windeck, nearby in Rittersbach/Buhl

Jaegersteig, also in Rittersbach, quietest and least expensive

All have websites of course.

I took a look at the hotel web sites. The first two were a bit over the top for us. Actually, the Jaegersteig looks the most appealing and we may try that one. Thanks again!

TuckH, just wanted to let you know we will be staying at the Jaegersteig. It looks pleasant and we'll post a review after we get back. FYI (for anyone else thinking about contacting them), they speak NO English. I called to make reservations, hit a stumbling block (they don't speak French either; I took a flyer on that as they're so close to Alsace), and had to pull my German speaking husband out of the shower to finish making the reservation.
