The value of Silver Cloud on Lake Union cannot be applauded enough! We were so impressed with the staff, the property and the service. Parking is good, though very tight if you get back to the hotel late and get the last spot or two. Make sure you don't get put in the room next to the breakfast service area....

The customer service deserves 5 stars! We booked through a "discount" site. However, upon arrival, I asked for a top floor, quiet room, (which is usually an extra charge) and was given what I asked for. The room (705) was clean, large, quiet and very comfortable. The view wasn't great. It overlooked a dirty parking lot. However, the room also...

We came to Seattle to take our baby to Seattle Children's Hospital. This was a very convenient location with no car rental as we were able to take the SCCA shuttle (just down the street) to the hospital and the hotel shuttle to the light rail to get to the airport. Our 7th floor room was very quiet and had...

We had an excellent stay at the Silver Cloud Inn Lake Union and found our corner double queen room to be very comfortable. I liked being able to open the doors and peak out at the Lake to watch the seaplanes in flight, and to see the perfect view of the Space Needle (especially dramatic at night!). There was some...

Rooms are very comfortable and extremely clean. Housekeeping staff was very accommodating. Free parking and free WiFi was a reason I chose Silver Cloud and was definitely an asset. Would go back in a heart beat and would like to check out their locations in Tacoma and Mulkiteo.

the hotel is located across the road from Lake Union - we requested and got a lake view room on the top floor which was great. Although a couple of miles outside the downtown area there is a tram/streetcar which starts just down from the hotel and also they run a very good shuttle service which will drop you off...

Lovely little boutique type hotel. Inviting fireplace greets one upon entering. Coffee and tea self serve in lobby along with convenience of ATM and internet business area great. The complimentary breakfast has great selection and choices. Central location to everything is exceptional including near the Cancer Alliance - which was most helpful. Shuttle and cab service prompt and on time....

Though the room could use updating - carpet looked tired and lighting was not best - the shuttle services makes the stay! Great to be dropped off & picked up at Space Needle, Pike Place, or Pioneer Square. After staying downtown earlier in the week and doing lots of walking, the rides were appreciated. Be prepared for crowds at breakfast...

I was here for a week in Oct 2014. The hotel is very convenient to both downtown and northern locations. Took 20 min to drive between SEA-TAC airport and the hotel (not bad by Seattle traffic standards). Breakfast choices were above average for hotels of this type. My room was very comfortable with fine amenities. WiFi speeds were good. Excellent...

This is a wonderful Hotel for a very nice stay at an affordable value. It is one of the nicer properties at a reasonable rate - which includes free parking and wifi. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. As far as getting downtown - we either use the hotel shuttle or the street car which is just down...
