“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed for one night to see the Gauguin show at the Museum. Great hotel, easy to find, just off the I-5. Our room wasn't ready so we took their shuttle downtown to see the Gauguin show and wander Pike Place Market. We also went to the Seattle Public Library to see the interesting architecture. One phone call and the shuttle picked us up where we were dropped off and we were settled into a nice room. The breakfast was good, eggs and sausages, waffles along with the usual pastries, fruit and yogurt. The coffee is pretty good, too. The best part is the free parking in a secured lot. No problems at all. We had dinner at Joey's across the way, you can walk over, it was delicious.

How could we have missed this jewel of a place to stay in Seattle? In the past we have stayed in the downtown Seattle area, dodging the traffic, paying for tight parking; but Lake Union's Silver Cloud was tucked away close to downtown with FREE, secured parking and gorgeous views. We all loved the FANTASTIC work-out equipment and great morning breakfast! Room was comfortable and well-decorated. We definitely will stay here again on the next trip to Seattle!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face Lake Union.

I stayed at the Lake Union Silver Cloud while my partner was teaching a weekend class at the Cortiva Massage Therapy school just up from the hotel. Everyone working there had a big smile and enjoyed helping all their guests. Our room overlooked Lake Union and we too enjoyed watching the sea planes come and go. The Seattle Streetcar is right out front to take you into the downtown area for $2.50/person. It is a nice walk to the Space Needle area and around Lake Union itself. I highly recommend checking out the Wooden Boat Center on Lake Union as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Lake Union

We stayed here in December 2011 and really enjoyed it. We had a room with a view of the lake and our boys enjoyed watching the sea planes take off and land. It was also lovely in the evening to watch the lights coming on around the city.
The room was large enough to take the four of us, two adults, two teenage sized boys and all the stuff we travelled with for six weeks on the road. Breakfast was plentiful, the pool warm and one thing I loved, the washer and dryer were complimentary.
They have a shuttle that can take you into the city centre and pick you up but we found we could walk to distance or take the tram, which stops just down the road.
This was a great place to stay and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra and get a room with a view.

I got caught in the huge Seattle snow storm of January 2012. The town basically shut down for 2 days. I must say that the staff continued to keep in great spirits, and guided us through the challenges of city transportation when everything was on unpredictable snow schedules. Every staff member treated us so kindly, even when we got lost and couldn't find a bus late at night. I will definitely stay at this lovely hotel again. When it cleared up, the view was delightful.

This is the second time I've stayed here and both times I have been extremely happy. The staff is very friendly and happy to serve. I got in town sooner than planned and even though it was only 11:30 am the staff graciously let me move in! The breakfast in the morning is a bonus too as it stays open til 10 on weekends and 9:30 weekdays...which in my experience is rare. Love this place! The rooms are very well stocked and even though it is close to the freeway you never hear it. Lots of extra pillows too..slept great. I should mention here they have a shuttle service and they will take you and pick you up....no parking hassles!
