The rooms and amenities are basic, but it's clean and nice, and an easy walk to the Memorial Union, State Street restaurants, and the Capitol. I had a view of the Capitol from my window. The only negative is that it's on fraternity row, so so it gets a bit noisy on weekend nights. I don't remember if you have... More

Stayed for a week, I got there early enough to get on site parking, my 2 colleagues didn't, had to park 3 blocks away, still, weather was nice, so the walk was fine. Breakfast in the morning was good, plenty of places to eat nearby, exercise room was adequate, didn't have a regular type bike, only recumbent, room was nice,... More

Stayed with my son while visiting the campus. Great location for State Street and getting to the campus facilities. 2 queen room is sufficient size for two for a couple of days and beds are comfortable. The breakfast was also very nice. Marks off for the bathroom. Shower stall was in need of updating.

When you first walk in and see the common areas, you may have your doubts. Hang in there, check in and get to your room. If you are eligible to stay here, you will find great value, and rooms in quality equivalent to mid-range business hotels. Rooms size is comfortable, bathrooms have nice amenities, and the beds are comfortable. The... More

The Lowell Centre is a UW-owned hotel on campus, and it’s perfect for those wishing to stay close to the campus, but it is also conveniently located in general. The lakefront is a one minute walk away, as is State Street, and the Capitol Building between 10 and 15 minutes. I had a standard room, which was a good size,... More

The Lowell Center is a great place to stay, whenever you come to visit the UW campus. My room had a king size bed, refrig, microwave, Keurig, iron, and flatscreen TV. Room was very clean, wifi worked great and the free breakfast was was absolutely outstanding, The only negative was the night time noise level,

Overall, very nice hotel with clean and updated rooms, and excellent location close to the university and State St. Parking is limited at the hotel, but they do have extra parking a few blocks away if you don't mind walking. I agree with others comments it looks like a dorm from the outside, but you'll be pleasantly surprised by the... More

Upgrade to a plus room for high quality air conditioning, WIFI, spacious room, comfy beds and very quiet room to room. While this is 'adult' accommodation for long term students, there is noise from rooms to hallway but not much between rooms. Hotel has a pool and free breakfast with everything from eggs, cereal and toast to waffles and more.... More

Ok. It looks like an average dorm from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised by our 1 night stay. We had a clean, spacious room with a view of the lake. Breakfast was far superior than the standard Hampton Inn fare- home made everything, cooked to order eggs, fresh fruit, etc. Hint: get an upgraded room for about 20 bucks... More
