Silver Cloud Inn Seattle - Lake Union
Ranked #9 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We stayed here for 4 days in late March. It was great. The hotel was in a nice area of town. You can see Lake Union right across the street. The main lobby was very nice and the staff very friendly. Our room was on the 3rd floor, which was great because that was the floor with the breakfast buffet. The buffet was awesome, waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, coffee, juice, fruit, and sweet rolls. It was very filling. And the view was beautiful. We had a king size room. It was very spacious. No complaints. We used the pool & hot tub on the first floor. It was excellent. Really good after a day of walking around museums. When we went, there was no one else there.

The main plus for this hotel is the complimentary shuttle service. We did rent a car but we never had to drive it around town. We used the shuttle everyday. It goes the three main areas downtown, the Space Needle, Pike Place & Pioneer Square. The drivers were very fast and really talkative. We only had one instance where we had to wait for the next shuttle but the driver was so nice, he dropped us off at a restaurant we were eyeing on the way back. Great guy. We gave the drivers $2-$3 per ride as a tip.

The only bad thing I can say about the hotel is here were some spots in the hallways where you could see some wear & tear of the hotel like some stained and scraped wallpaper. But there aren't many spots like that.

Overall, this was a great deal and I'm really happy we chose this hotel. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor and be on the same floor of the breakfast buffet. :)

I can't say enough good things about Silver Cloud Inn. We just finished a three night stay here with our two kids, and we had a great time. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool was fun for the kids. The breakfast buffet was a perfectly functional way to get a simple breakfast before starting your day (the buffet did get crowded, which is to be expected). Best of all was the staff: they were always courteous and friendly and worked hard to make their guests comfortable. The shuttle to major Seattle sites was really handy as well. We've stayed at a lot of places in Seattle. If you want a functional and comfortable place to stay, it will be hard to beat Silver Cloud Inn.

Room Tip: While you have to pay extra, the 7th floor rooms on the Lake side have stunning views.

This is he second time in this hotel . I really like the first time . Over looking the lake and the boat yards are great . But the other side you look at nothing and it is very loud with traffic probable off I 5 . Room was clean ,but not the bathroom . Not really the fault of the cleaning Crue I am sure the woman in the room before us did her best to hid it in the sower curtain before she left . Over all I will stay here again but only if I can have a room over looking the lake

Over to Seattle to see my daughter. So many choices with hotel stay. Taking my girlfriend who has never been to Seattle or the ocean, so I wanted something special. Location Location Location. Since I lived here 30 years ago many changes have happened and a almost double in population. Anyway wanted something close to downtown as my daughter lives downtown. Chose the Silver cloud inn at Lake union as I wanted a view of Lake Union, close to downtown, free breakfast and internet and the all important free parking. Room was super at 200 a night with taxes, view was wonderful, breakfast was very good, internet fast and secure. Parking is a little tough as the spaces are small so if you drive your Suburban or Pickup good luck. Anyway staff super nice. Free shuttle to downtown, Pike place, seattle center and pioneer square. Just call them when you are done and they come pick you up where they dropped you off. Will stay again probably not get the view again as thats a extra 20 a night, who knows.

Room Tip: No restaurants in walking distance or on site. Have to travel a bit

My family travelled to seattle for a portion of our group to attend Comicon. The rest of us went to the zoo. This hotel was nice and centrally located. The rooms were big and beautiful and the staff very attentive. Our only complaint was the parking. it was free which was appreciated but the spots are tiny and our vehicle was a van. Very difficult.

Provided just what I needed for my business trip to The Kois Center on Lake Union: breakfast, great service with a smile, shuttle bus to tourist sites, pool. As soon as I reported a slow drain maintenance was on top of it. This is my third visit and if I come back to Seattle I will stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel and really enjoyed a lot of the amenities including free breakfast and free shuttle to downtown. My room was a very nice size with 2 queen beds, a couch and desk. The only downside to this hotel is 2 of the receptionist in particular, both skinny dark haired girls. On arrival, they did not tell me where the elevator(s) were or anything about the breakfast. After asking about the breakfast hours, I received a very snippy answer. When asking about the shuttle they acted like I was bothering them and gave me the minimum information possible. I was told that the shuttle leaves every half hour and I just need to show up. When I showed up the next morning, I was told (this time by a nice receptionist) that I needed to sign up for the shuttle as there was limited space. Would have been nice to know beforehand as I was headed to the airport and needed to get their early. I do like this hotel and would stay again, but believe that these girls in particular need some schooling in hospitality management. The other staff at the front desk and the drivers of the shuttle were great to converse with and were very good at their jobs.

Room Tip: The street traffic is very noisy so choose a high floor and use a white noise app on your phone.
