I stayed here with my daughter and did some sight seeing while she attended a course. This was our second stay here. Staff were very helpful with travel, maps, suggestions on venues..... The gentleman who drove the shuttle was very helpful. Breakfast was very good. It could have started 30 min sooner for early risers....

Wow, besides being a very clean and updated facility, we were very pleased with the extras: free parking, complimentary laundry facilities, fantastic assortment of hot & cold breakfast choices (loved the real china & silverware), BIG screen TV in our room, even a shuttle that runs downtown to the Pike Place Market every half hour! We were so busy that...

My wife and I stayed at the Silver Cloud over the weekend while attending a wedding in Seattle. Staff was friendly though not exactly focused. Rooms were good for the rate. Parking was a little tight but no complaints since it was free. Things I'm a fan of at this hotel. 1) the water pressure and temp of the showers....

We picked this hotel based upon TripAdvisor reviews and were very happy we did. We had a room with view of the lake and loved watching the planes and boats. Walking distance to several really good resaurants. Some things that others did not mention: Free washer and dryer on every (at least on ours) floor; real china and silverware in...

The hotel has a very comfortable feel and the rooms were lovely and very clean. We had a suite overlooking Lake Union. Restaurants were within easy walking distance. The staff was professional and very helpful. The free parking and shuttle service are a big plus. We will return again.

The hotel is near many of the biotech and university sites in the area. It is an easy walk and convenient to public transport. Best of all, they have free parking which is hard to find in the area. It is also near great coffee and food. The parking lot can be a bit difficult to maneuver in if you...

I was going to an early morning class at MOHAI. It is a ten minute walk from this hotel. Transit choices abound. The South Lake Union trolley runs right by the hotel. You can also catch busses to the University District or Downtown practically in front of or across the street from the hotel. A shuttle runs every half hour...

This hotel is located on the south side of Lake Union. This location is just north of downtown Seattle and convenient to the I5 freeway. Just across the street are a number of upscale restaurants, many with outdoor seating overlooking the lake. Although not within easy walking distance of downtown the hotel offers free shuttle service, both drop off and...

Overall, if there is a better value in hotel lodging in Seattle, I would be exceptionally surprised. The rooms are spacious and clean. The morning breakfast is a quality offering and is light years above what I'm accustomed to receiving at my typical Hampton Inn. The registration desk staff is friendly, helpful, and competent. They seem to make every effort...
