Silver Cloud Inn Seattle - Lake Union
Ranked #10 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2013

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 pick up. The hotel also has secure garage parking at no charge. The rooms are large and feature upscale furnishings, WiFi at no charge and there are other amenities, such as an indoor pool, exercise room, business center and a large lounge area on the third floor with an outdoor patio overlooking Lake Union. A breakfast consisting of a nice selection of hot and cold items is served in the lounge each morning. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side overlook Lake Union and have great views. Rooms on the south side cost a bi...

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 to help regardless of the guest request. Garage parking is secured. The shuttle service to Pike Street Public Market and Pioneer Square was a great feature. As I said, I do not think there is a better combination of quality and value in Seattle.

we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it was a great value for what we received, nice big comgy king bed, large 2 person Jacuzzi in room tub, made for great relaxing time.The free shuttle was a real bonus, as we had no vehicle and they took us to some major attrations and from there we were able to walk. The free breakfast is also a reason we chose this hotel, and was very good. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. will choose this hotel again for our next seattle stay.

We selected this hotel due to proximity to Kenmore Air (from the map). FYI, Courtyard Marriott is right accross the street.

Anyway, the hotel is simple. Nothing fancy... comfy beds, great shower, free wifi, coffee in the rooms, and a shuttle that does give you a lift to nearby areas. The breakfast? we skipped day two and went to Lola's - which was fabulous.

The front desk was accommodating, the shuttle driver witty, and pretty much everything/everywhere was within walking distance or public transportation.

Beware of the lake front rooms - the road along side the hotel is SUPER busy..... TONS of traffic noise, regardless of what floor you are on (as we inquired about moving) you hear it. So, have a view and listen to the cars.

Anyway, the price was cheaper than many, you don't spend that much time in your room.... and for a nice addition, head over to the Crabhouse for the celebration of 25 years, where the tasty bites are a mear $ .25 each during happy hour.

This hotel is a great find,very nice,comfortable & exceptionally clean. We had a king room with a view of the lake on the 5th floor. We arrived a day early and ( even though booking.com listed it as fully booked) we were accommodated with out the bother of having to change rooms for our confirmed 2 night stay. The so called continental breakfast included is far more, lots of variety and plenty of it.
The heated indoor pool & hot tub is very well maintained & open 24/7. The free shuttle service provided is an added bonus, as hotel is a little out of the main city centre. We did not have a car but commented on the very secure parking under the hotel and there is a free guest laundry on most floors, along with a drink vending machine and ice machine. I would recommend his hotel to all & would stay here again if ever in Seattle.
The only negative is no restaurant in the hotel and nowhere near by so you need transport to get a meal.

Room Tip: To get a lake view any where from 5th floor up.

Good location. We especially liked the free shuttle to downtown and the fact that usually they would pick you up from downtown within 5 mins of ringing them. Also when we left they took us to the Amtrak Station. The breakfast was very good with pleanty of choice

Really cheap for Seattle, just few minutes away from downtown. The free underground parking lot was great, something you don't find everywhere in busy cities. The room was spacious and comfy! I loved that the pool/hot tub is open 24 hours.. you can go relax at anytime, that's perfect! The included continental breakfast was delicious, lots of choices! Would definitely go back and look more into the rest of the chain!
