Silver Cloud Inn Seattle - Lake Union
Ranked #11 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2014

The Silver Cloud Lake Union is a our go-to hotel when in Seattle. The highlights for us include: 1. The location on Lake Union with terrific views of the lake and close proximity to downtown. 2. Free parking in a secure indoor lot. 3. Free hotel shuttle transportation to and from Seattle Center, Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square. 4. A delicious hot breakfast provided in a delightful third floor dining area with beautiful views. 5. Clean, modern, spacious rooms with extremely comfortable beds. We recommend!

You get all the amenities you need and then some. Internet services was great, pool nice and clean, breakfast was outstanding. And the room was very quiet even though the hotel was full. Everyone was very friendly from the maintenance staff to the ladies serving breakfast. You get a nice microwave, refrigerator and they even give you glasses, plates and silverware for in room dining.

Room Tip: Try to get on the higher floors for view purposes only. The whole hotel is laid out quite well.

My family and I stayed at the Silver cloud inn in august of 2014 for 4 nights. Honestly, we wished we could have stayed longer.
Service:
To start, we checked in at about midnight because we had a late flight. despite this, our check in was easy and quick. We also requested to have some rental car information, and it was avaliable by when we woke up the next morning. The service was great.
Breakfast:
The breakfast was a complimentary continental buffet. The food was great, and there was a lot of variety. There were hot foods such as eggs and sausage, waffle presses and batter, and oatmeal, and cold foods such as cereal, yogurt, and fruit. Also, the breakfast dining area was nice and had an outdoor area with a view.
Pool:
The pool and hot tub were quiet but somewhat small. Still, they were clean and did the job.
Hotel Shuttle:
Although we got a rental car, we also used the hotel shuttle because it was more convinient than paying for parking in the city. The shuttle was GREAT!! absolutely wonderful because it ran very often and would take you to and from the major parts of the city basically whenever you need it. The hotel says the shuttle only goes to 3 locations in the city, but when we asked they were nice enough to take and bring us to anywhere we wanted in the city. Overall it was very convinient and money-saving.
Room:
The room we got was on the 4th floor and had 2 queen beds to accomidate the 4 people in my family. I can confidently say that it was the biggest hotel room that ive ever stayed in. it was VERY spacious and clean. The bathroom itself was small, but that was because the vanity was not in the bathroom, but just outside. This was very convinient because people coud use the mirror/sinks while others were using the bathroom.
Location:
This hotel was within walking distance of Lake Union, where there are several nice restaurants, a great view, and the opportunity to paddle board or kayak. It was only a short drive to downtown, and the area was quiet and safe.
Overall:
My family and I loved this hotel (its technically an inn but its definetly nice enough to be a hotel) and whished we could have stayed longer. Its a good value because breakfast, parking, and the shuttle are included (especially considering the pricey hotels in Seattle).
Another note, if you are considering other silver cloud hotels in Seattle, know that the inn at lke union is in a better area than Silver cloud broadway.
And dont be put off by the pig in the lobby. When we asked about it we found that it was just a way o the silver cloud brand supporting seattle.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a view of the lake- it is beautiful!

This hotel provides excellent value and convenience. It is moderately priced but provides free, secure parking, which is rare in a hotel that is so close to the center of the city. The location is convenient so that you can drive around the city without having to get onto the freeways, and yet if you do need to drive further away, access to the freeway is fairly easy. If you do not have a car, or if you don't want to hassle with driving into the city, the hotel provides a free shuttle to Pike Place, Pioneer Square and a third location. The rooms are large, quiet and clean, and the fitness facility is one of the best ones I've seen in a non-luxury hotel (at least eight cardio machines, plus Life Fitness and cable machines). The breakfast room is large and airy; the food quality is just so-so (the standard fare - scrambled eggs, sausages, assorted pastries and cereals). All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seattle, especially someone on a budget.

Excellent hotel. Best value for the money in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a King View room on the top floor with a great view of the lake. The room was clean and well furnished. Separate sinks in the bathroom and the bedroom area. Bathroom was spotless; towels were clean and fresh. The A/C units kept the room cool on the low setting and made very little noise. The sliding doors between the bedroom and living area provided our two teenage boys with their "own space." The breakfast is well stocked and provides a great variety of selections. The breakfast area includes a lounge/library section along with an open patio. The free shuttle runs into town every 1/2 hour. We walked to the Space Needle but it was great to have the return shuttle after a long day. There are several good restaurants within a two-block walk of the hotel. We had really good pizza from Pagliacci's delivered one evening for the kids. Easy access to town and freeways from the hotel. And there's no extra charge for parking! One tip: park on the second level; the spaces are still pretty narrow but there is much more room to maneuver.

Room Tip: North side, upper floor for a great lake view. The sea planes take off from the south end of the lak...

I have stayed at this Silver Cloud Inn several times and every time, the staff has been responsive and efficient. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but the location is perfect for those of us receiving treatment at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. The shuttle is a fantastic perk for those of us making the trip to the Alliance for appointments. During my last visit I had a lake view room which was fantastic. Lake Union was spectacular and the hotel view was a wonderful oasis in an otherwise stressful time. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired however. We need healthier food choices with no additives or artificial ingredients, but every hotel serves the same cheap products so Silver Cloud follows the industry standard I guess. Too bad. High fructose corn syrup and other additives are some of the reasons for the rise in illness and cancer in particular so every hotel should take note of healthier choices for their guests. Hope it changes soon.

Room Tip: For a quiet sleep choose the side opposite the lake. The view of the lake is great, ,but the road i...
