Downtown Hotels

Attendees interested in staying in downtown Seattle can find dozens of hotels near the Westlake light rail station. We recommend hotels near this light rail station for easy access to the campus conference venue and proximity to downtown activities, such as Pike Place Market and a vintage monorail ride to Seattle Center (where the Space Needle and several museums are located).   

Northgate Hotels

Located two stops north of the UW on the light rail, Northgate is a great option for people looking for alternatives to staying downtown.
