Recommended hotel:  The Hyatt House near Bellevue College (easy access to 1-90, and then you can hop off and reach the Mercer Island Community Center very easily). However, for our out-of-town guests, with the stipend you can decide where you want to stay.  Mention my name, the Center of Excellence, and Bellevue College to get the government rate.  Also, use Expedia to find hotels, like The Red Lion, Bellevue, and others if the Hyatt House is sold out. If you need further suggestions, contact the Center.
