There's no real proof you could sandwich an extra 10,000 seats in the 500 level to get to 65,000. More likely you could only add a couple thousand seats. The lower levels in the outfield (200 and 300 level) would be used for restaurants or more private boxes so they wouldn't rip those out for more seats.
Anyways, it would just mean more obstructed seats in all probability. The hotel is so close to the field that if you converted it to seats it you would not be able to see the nearest endzone at all (maybe even more than that). There are already thousands of obstructed seats in the stadium. Getting rid of the hotel to add more obstructed seats is a non-starter.
