NOTE: The Venue Has Changed!
You can stay at the new conference venue:
See the Spring F2F Hotel Page for details. The UW does have a price agreement with several hotels close to campus. (I do not care for the Deca Hotel. It isn't bad but it also isn't good. YMMV. - ed.)
If you are driving at rush hour, give yourself extra time, especially if you plan to take I-5.
For bus and light rail service, see Google Maps transit information or the King County Metro Trip Planner. The mobile app OneBusAway is very handy for bus arrival times.
Seattle has ZipCar and Car2Go coverage, if you are a member of those services.
The U-District has a lot of "college" restaurants. Nearby is University Village - an open-air mall with several better restaurants. The nearby neighborhood of Wallingford has lots of good restaurants.
There are two small art galleries on campus.
Rowing is really big in the area and you can always go to a bridge and watch crew.
