Silver Cloud Inn Seattle - Lake Union
Ranked #11 of 102 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2008

I had looked at the Silver Cloud on line, but chose a cheaper hotel closer to downtown. The other hotel was less than expected, so we called and switched. We were pleasantly surprised at everything. Parking was included. The pool was indoor, heated and nice. Breakfast was wonderful with lots of choices and in a very pleasant room with a great view of the lake and the seaplanes, looking toward the picturesque hills across the lake. The room was a little larger that a standard hotel room and the chair converted to a single bed, making the 5 of us very comfortable. The TV was a large flat screen - nice. Our view was just of the buildings behind, but if you get an upper floor on the lake side, the views are gorgeous. We took the hotel shuttle to a Mariners game - very convienent not to have to drive. I wish I had known how much we would have enjoyed our selves here and stayed longer.

I think on the map, the location looks far from the center of town, but that really isn't the case. We found some of the streets downtown to be a little seedy, so unless you are on the waterfront directly, or at one of the pricey boutique hotels, avoid the cheaper rooms a few blocks from 2nd St. A few more blocks and you are at Lake Union, just behind the Space Needle, actually very close and with the shuttle service, you won't have to worry about finding parking. Then just relax and enjoy your stay.

We were in town for the weekend and tried the Silver Cloud for the first time. Awesome stay. We have two young children and they loved the pool. It was walking distance to many fine restaurants.
The best part of the stay was the shuttle service.
We parked our car for weekend and never used it once -- that to us made the weekend even more pleasant.

The front desk was helpful and polite. The shuttle drivers were great. Kudos to all the drivers. The beds were O.K. and rooms were clean.

The breakfast was very good and well stocked. Great way to start the morning.

Would definitely stay again but only if the shuttle service was running.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Lake Union Silver Cloud hotel. We stayed three weeknights and felt right at home. The room we reserved was a suite with a view and were located overlooking Lake Union. Watching the activity on the water which included many seaplanes was entertaining. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance and very pleasant and safe grounds to walk around. The staff was excellent as well as the breakfasts. We had one issue where there were no sheets on the hide-a-bed, but the manager (Jay) was very professional in correcting the issue. We definitely plan to stay at this establishment again in the near future.

We completed our Northwest vacation with three nights in Seattle at the Silver Cloud Inn. It could not have been better for the price, convenience of location and hospitality.

Paying the extra for the lake view was worth the price as has been previously recommended. We agree.

The breakfast each morning was fantastic and very popular over the weekend. The free shuttle the hotel provides is a great convenience as well.

Overall we were very pleased - the room was clean, updated and roomy with a couch and sitting area. Also a free washing machine and dryer were available on the floor. Wonderful!

If you are looking for a high rise downtown hotel experience this would not be your choice -- if you are looking to get a little out of that scene and stay nearby in the Lake Union area - this is the best possible place.

I stayed at the Silver Cloud in mid-July , having selected it based upon the TripAdvisor.com reviews.
It was my first trip to the beautiful city of Seattle. Silver Cloud Inn is a wonderful, spotlessly clean hotel. The staff are instantly cheerfully available. The room is nicely designed and well equipped. I was traveling alone but noticed many multigenerational families and I would imagine that his inn meets the needs of all ages. The swimming pool is extremely clean and open long hours. The complimentary shuttle to various points is a huge benefit and money saver, although public transport in Seattle is moderately priced and extensive.
The buffet breakfasts were perfect for someone like me who does not require a lumberman's special, plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, bagels, a waffle maker. There is always free coffee in the lobby.

I really liked the Silver Cloud Inn tremendously and wish that they were also located in New England, my home.

Beautiful Hotel! The staff was wonderful. Very helpful with directions, restaurant info., things to do. We did have a room with a view and I would say that the view would be interrupted if you were on the 3rd floor or lower because there are building across the street. We were on the 6th floor and loved it! The deck (accessable by all guests)was great to watch sunsets from even from while sitting outside it was I believe on the 3rd floor. The shuttle was wonderful, not having to deal with traffic was great. It did take a bit for it to show up to get us but I'm sure it was due to traffic. Our room was very nice with a king size bed and flat screen tv.
