Silver Cloud Inn Seattle - Lake Union
Ranked #11 of 103 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Stayed here for a work trip. Room (705) was very spacious, comfortable, clean. The location is about a 20 minute walk from Pacific Place, so not too far away from lots of Seattle's core attractions. If you aren't up for the walk, the Lake Union trolley stop is less than 5 minutes away.
Staff were friendly. The buffet breakfast was ample and adequate, but nothing to write home about.

I stayed for two nights and I was very pleased.
Friendly and helpful stuff, clean at a nice area.
The room was huge and clean.
The breakfast was a bit poor and with not many tables.
The first morning, I had to wait a fifteen minutes to get a table.
There is a free WIFI and parking ( if you have a car )

In many ways I would compare the hotel to a standard Marriott Courtyard property. The hotel is a little older, some room updates are coming due, but it was clean. Our room had a microwave and refrigerator. Parking is indoor, covered and secure, a key card is required to enter. The lake is across the street but our room did not face the lake. There are several restaurants within walking distance, they are all lakefront and decent. I didn't locate a market within walking distance, there may be one I just didn't find it on my walk. The freeway is close by and I thought since our room faced the direction of the freeway it would be loud but I didn't find the noise level objectionable at all. The hotel provides a free modified continental breakfast. The breakfast served scrambled eggs, bacon and breakfast potatoes along with cereal, muffins and bananas and apples. The food was as expected of free food, decent calories but not memorable food. The breakfast room is nice and looks out over the lake. The problem is the trees in front of the hotel have grown to the point that they block much of the view of the lake. Not a big deal as you can always go out the front door and walk on the path next to the lake. The hotel is not downtown, you'll need a taxi, car or public transpiration to get there unless you don't mind walking awhile. I don't think you'll be disappointed here, you can get decent rates in a decent hotel in a safe area.
There are a couple of items in our hotel room that could use some attention. They weren't urgent and I planned to inform the hotel when they sent me an email satisfaction survey to ask me about my stay. They seem to be common place for most places I stay. They didn't ask my opinion on my five day stay.

I highly recommend staying at silver cloud. The location is great, it's close to downtown but without the expensive parking fee. They have a free shuttle to Seattle center, pike place market, and pioneer square. Rooms are comfortable, free breakfast, reasonable room rates .

The room was spacious (one-bedroom suite) and relatively quiet. The breakfast buffett was freshly made daily with a good variety of dining options. The hotel location was great with many nearby restaurants.

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....
