While Tacoma is not Mecca for high end hotels, the Silver Cloud would be an excellent hotel most anywhere and certainly deserves its Number One ranking here. It is located on the Ruston Way waterfront on a pier over the water. That location comes with pluses and minuses, with the hotel mitigating most of the negatives. The waterfront walkways and...

It was our 40th Anniversary and we chose the Silver Cloud Inn on the Waterfront. From first contact upon check-in, the front desk gave us everything we requested and more. Our room was not quite ready but it was less than ten minutes, and we were on our way. The room was a waterfront view with jacuzzi tub. Wow! It...

This is one of the best places i have ever stayed. Great customer service, breakfast and cleanliness. Easy access to wherever your venture is for the day. Close restaurants, if you are tired just walk to one of the establishments next to it. I have NOTHING to say bad about this place!!

I really like this hotel. I did have a problem with train noise the first night but they remedied that with a wonderful room at the back and I slept like a baby. It was wonderful. Breakfasts are satisfying and you have great variety of choice. Tuesdays you have a wine and cheese event that is delicious. Unfortunately, there is...

The Silver Cloud Inn is always our place to stay when coming back to Tacoma. [We used to live right across from the hotel for many years, prior to retirement] Unfortunately we found that the train traffic has increased enormously, and the constant whistle blowing kept us awake half of the night. Granted, that is not the hotel's fault. Maybe...

Most people want to see the bad first so here it is. Loud Trains!! The entire point of staying in a hotel is to get a good nights rest and we left so tired and ready to be home. We stayed 11/10-11/14 and the trains woke my entire family every morning around 3am and multiple trains would follow every 15-30...

DA C, I am very sorry that you had trouble with the train noise. I have been working diligently with Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Amtrak to ensure that their engineers are aware of the wayside horn at the intersection. I have also contacted the City of Tacoma to have them recalibrate the wayside horn to make sure that it...

We love this hotel . This is our second stay and probably would not stay anywhere else in Tacoma. It's right on the water and there are multiple restaurants within walking distance. Free breakfast isn't bad either although we did go across the street and up the hill to the Spa breakfast spot that was also great!!

Professional Staff, clean, comfortable accommodations. Breakfast selection very nice for this style and perfect to get you on to your day. My only suggestion would be a softer pillow, and they may have them, I did not request. Very comfortable location, lots of dinner options within walking range. We will return.

Great hotel in a great area! My wife and I stayed here as a one night as a getaway. We loved the king bed and in room jacuzzi tub. There are plenty of good restaurants within one mile of hotel. Also a wide array of activities to do in the area year round.

Many rooms look out onto the harbor lights of Tacoma. Close to but removed from the town center, but very close to the old town area, which is very charming. Also, close to the Point Defiance Park, and the Prospect neighborhood. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Room large and comfortable, with mini-fridge, microwave, and bar sink. Very reliable...
