The University of Washington was generous enough to provide us a meeting room (SW130 C&D) inside the Plaza Cafe at UW Medical Center. It is a little difficult to locate if you are not familiar with the Medical Center.
The most convenient parking for the Plaza Café is in LOT S1 behind  the hospital.  The best map for finding lot S1 is at:
Follow 15th Ave NE to the end and bear left at the end to get to the gatehouse.  Unfortunately parking is not free even after 6 pm.  After the gatehouse, bear right to enter the middle (covered) level of the parking lot. You can also ask the gatehouse personnel where the hospital door is on level 2.
Go to the far end of the underground  level to parking sections M1,2,& 3. Enter at the orange door with a blue HOSPITAL sign. Inside, walk up the ramp to double doors on the right into the hospital building (double doors straight ahead are to Imaging). Go to the end of this hall and take the RR elevators to floor 1. Get off the elevator and turn right to the double doors for the Plaza Café; you will be entering at the back of the Cafe near the coffee kiosk. Walk past the coffee kiosk and through the glass door. Meeting room SW130D is directly across the small hallway (the SW130C door is slightly to the left).
I am assured by Security that those cafe doors will remain unlocked, however, if there is any problem, follow the hallway straight from the elevators about 150 feet through double doors to the main Plaza Cafe doors on right. The meeting room will be at the back, on your left just before the exit.
Here is a map of UW Medical Center by floors:

If you are taking transit, you may want to enter at the front main entrance and ask directions to the Plaza Café.
