First time at a Silver Cloud location which is a small chain focused on Washington State. The staff were generally engaged and helpful, quite a difference to some of the attitudes you encounter at the megahotel chains. We had a mini-suite for a family of four, with a sliding door dividing the bedroom and the lounge room area which has... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We constantly strive to improve our guests overall experience. And you hit the "nail on the head" when you mentioned our renovation. Although it was a difficult decision, we felt removing the pool would create a more inviting space as well as provide essential room during our breakfast hours. It... More

Good location to shopping, restaurants, and the university. I gave this hotel an average rating because it really needs an update. It looks like they have started some sort of remodel. If you're planning a trip soon, you might wan to check on that. We also thought it was overpriced.

Thank you for the feedback. You are indeed correct when you noticed our renovation. We are expanding our breakfast and public areas. We are also updating some elements in our guest rooms such as case goods, wallpaper, 55inch HDTV's, lighting and well the list is quite extensive. We would love for you to visit us again in the future and... More

My room was clean and quiet, temperature was easily changed and the fan wasn't too loud. The hotel was close to shopping and restaurants and easy access to UW campus. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful and we loved the Happy Hour on Tuesday night. It was much better than anticipated with great snacks and drinks. We will stay again... More

I recall my first visit.... I wasn't impressed. My perception has changed. The beds were comfy, pillows were fluffy and the TV is HUGE. All HD. Bathroom were small, yet very clean. Rooms were spacious and have microwave and mini fridge. Breakfast has a decent variety and there is transportation to anywhere within a 3 mile radius. That's pretty cool.... More

We ended up at this hotel after the initial booking at the Talaris Conference Center hit a glitch. Blessing in disguise as the place turned out to be in a good location considering that our son who's attending college in the city is just 5 mins away. The daily shuttle service compensated for the commute to the conference center. Full... More

I stayed in the Silver Cloud last summer. I was expecting so much more than what it was. I did stay one night one week and then two nights, one week later. I was expecting it to be quieter and much nicer. The photos of the property are indicative that it is plush and quiet. Not the case. It was... More

Place got free shuttle, onsite exercise room, full breakfast daily, big 55" TV in each room, what else do you want? Maid service is superb. Staff addressed all questions that came up, that I had. Hotel is in the heart of the College scene (which will flood back old memories).

Wonderful place located just outside of downtown. Rooms are HUGE! and the TV- about 55 inches. The biggest I have seen in a hotel so far. Free breakfast and free parking which is kind of hard to find in the city. Awesome stay during new years eve, away from the partying crowd to think that this is in a college... More

Hotel seems to have completed renovation of rooms which has greatly improved their condition. Renovation now concentrated on removing indoor pool which has not disturbed guests or lobby, at least so far. Breakfast has been advertised as continental, but this stay included scrambled eggs, sausage, fried potatoes and egg burritos or mini-quiches, as well as the standard bagels, pastries and... More
