There are quite a few hotels in the area that you mentioned in southwest Lakewood, right off of Hwy 285 (which is also called Hampden) and this is a direct route to Federal. They will be quieter than downtown and some are pretty new. In addition, parking there is free. Congratulations to your daughter, and I hope her graduation is a joyous time for all.
