I stayed at the Lowell Center while attending a conference on campus. Having completed my graduate school at the UW in the 1970's, I was very familiar with the area. The Center is well-positioned a block of State Street and the Memorial Union, both centers of activity, food, shopping and fun. It was an easy walk over to the conference facility at Union South, and the parking, which is always at a premium on or near campus, was quite adequate at the Lowell Center and only $10/day. WIFI was free and worked very well, even for large file transfers which I needed to do for work. Also, the free breakfast each morning was very nice, and there was always adequate room to sit down. Compared to the price of any other hotels in the same general area, the Lowell Center was a lot less. I highly recommend it if you are in town for a conference or other campus activity.
