They have an above average fitness room with lifefitness universal type machines, a cable machine, ellipticals, treadmills, and a recumbent. We had a suite which which had a microwave, mini-fridge, counter with stainless steel...

Enjoy the stay. Free wifi, free parking, free breakfast and free shuttle service to downtown Seattle are the highlights. The room was very very clean. I could clearly hear the footsteps from the room above on 5th floor at midnight.

We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed it! we requested a room with a pullout couch plus 2 queen beds and they accommodated us. Beds were comfortable, rooms were up to date and clean. Breakfast was above expectations- hot and cold selections served with real plates and silverware. It reminded me of breakfast served for Sheraton Club level rooms....

Lets just start off with debunking the three main reasons I chose to stay here, free parking, free breakfast and free shuttle. The entire reason why I spent more to stay here than other choices. The free parking is great if you drive a teeny tiny Suzuki Swift, and there are not enough spaces for the amount of hotel rooms...

Dear dannys58, Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Seattle. I am disheartened that your experience did not meet your expectations.

We arrived in Seattle very late (after 2 am). I had called ahead of time and was assured that our room would be waiting for us and it was! We had wonderful service for the 2 nights we spent there. I would highly recommend it. Everything was exceeded our expectations.

The Silver Cloud is close to all major Seattle attractions and venues. The view from our room of Lake Union was beautiful. The Tuesday night customer appreciation night happy hour was a nice touch. The complimentary breakfast is excellent . The staff is attentive and friendly. The free shuttle is a great convenience . Great restaurants are walking distance ....

We had a view from our room that was exceptional. We had an excellent stay and the renovated room was very nice. The hotel shuttle is a very nice service to provide. The breakfast is above average compared to your competition. We will be back.

The view of Lake Union is great. Old school coffee pot did not work, otherwise the room was nice. Maid woke half of my family up the morning of check out. As soon as she started knocking I went straight to the door, but she had already opened it. This is what separates 5 star resorts/hotels from the rest. Get...

Everything was great at this hotel except the security in the parking garage, there were several cars that had there windows smashed in luckily they skipped over ours thank god! They only have two cameras in front of gate, they need more and just because of that incident I wouldn't go back.

Stayed at this hotel and liked the location. Staff is very friendly and the double bed room was big and clean. Internet, breakfast and parking were free and there is a shuttle to the downtown. Needle and museums only 5 min by car. Our room was facing highway 5 but sound was very limited and no issue at night. The...
