We've stayed at the Lowell Center 3 times over the last few years and would highly recommend it. The staff are very helpful and the center is located right in the centre of the city. The rooms are not very large but have everything you need, I was in one of the renovated rooms this year and the mattress was very comfortable and the new decor was lovely. It is great to have the pool and sauna in the building as well as onsite parking (though I'd recommend you pre-book that as it can get busy)

This former dorm is in an excellent location, just a block off State Street and a block from the Union building. We stayed there for two nights on a football weekend. They offer breakfast, but it is just so-so. They have someone to make eggs for you, but there was a 10-15 minute wait. One of the toasters (the one I used) took 10 minutes and the bread was still not toasted. They ran out of coffee once. The room was quiet and eduroam worked fine for wi-fi, but the TV was pretty small. One of my friends in another room had no hot water for a shower. They were told later that they needed to let it run for 20 minutes first. And there was construction noise during the day. I might stay there again if there were no other choices, but for the price it could have been nicer.

When I made my reservation, there was no warning that there would be construction during my stay. The noise from the drilling started at 7:30 in the morning and continued all day. When I was in my room I felt like I was sitting in a dentist's chair. When I tried to switch rooms I got varying responses: the hotel was full; the empty rooms were just as noisy; they were too busy preparing for football weekend to prepare another room for me.

Dear ARPrinceton: We are so sorry that your experience was unsatisfactory. We hear your frustration around the remodeling work on-site and apologize for any inconvenience we caused with our construction projects. Unfortunately our subcontractor started earlier than what it had been scheduled for during your stay and I appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Your satisfaction is very important to us and I'm sharing your feedback with our management team and front desk staff. Sincerely, Lowell Center

Lowell Center is THE place to stay for those traveling to the university on business, with an ideal location adjacent to campus. It is comfortable and includes a very nice breakfast (eggs cooked to order in addition to the usual hot and cold items). Our room had a fridge and coffeemaker and the lobby has free cookies. The staff is friendly and helpful. As part of the university, eduroam is available and there is also UW guest wifi. If you need parking and want to be right next to the building you should reserve it in advance ($10/night). There is also free parking somewhat farther away. If you are attending a conference with multiple hotel choices and want to stay here, book early - it often sells out fast. On this visit I was attending a conference in another campus building, but on a previous visit I stayed here for a conference held in Lowell Center and the conference facilities were nice.

The goal of my trip was to visit the Wisconsin Historical Society archives on campus. While the cost was more than a room at Airbnb or a cheaper hotel, but I ended up saving money because I didn't need to rent a car. Everything was within walking distance, and I had a view of Lake Mendota, which was less than a block away. The room and all areas of the hotel were clean. The room had good sunlight during the day, and my king-size bed was quite comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was that the fan was always blowing, there was no way to turn it off. The breakfast served in the morning offered an incredible amount of choices, that was quite a treat.
