Can't beat the location if you need a place to stay in the U-District; near the University, and next door to University Village and the Burke-Gilman trail. Rooms are not luxurious, but are generally clean and quiet. Amenities are average, as is the breakfast. One complaint. I've made two visits in the last month, and both times the same waffle... More

We stayed at the Lake Union property last year and found it excellent for families. This year we couldn't find a room for our family there, and after trying unsuccessfully to find other downtown accommodations, we decided to stay at the Silver Cloud University property. Same great features: free parking, breakfast, wifi and local shuttle. The room was large and... More

Rooms were nice and clean. A real plus is the shuttle service to the university. Staff was helpful and engaging. Starbucks two blocks away. Also several good restaurants. OK workout area and pool. Front desk including Cam, Chelsea, and managers were helpful with directions

Loved staying here. Hotel is clean, well equipped, and with a great staff. The location is right next to the Burke-Gillman trail so you can go for a walk or bike ride around the area. Their shuttle took us to South Union Park on July 4th to watch the fireworks. Just a couple blocks down 25th is the University Village... More

We booked through Priceline. There was a hotel mix up. We paid a for a town car to take us to Silver Cloud on Broadway. Once there we discovered we were actually booked at the Silver Cloud in the University District. Despite being exhausted and disgusted with the mix up and Priceline’s customer service policy, to apologize. Period. When a... More

We stayed at the Silver Cloud during a busy Seattle weekend from Thursday-Saturday. The hotel was well kept, the rooms were clean, and the bathroom was immaculate. My boyfriend and I were hoping to secure a room on Thursday night, and after checking back multiple times earlier in the week, the front desk was extremely helpful and accommodating. In fact,...

Stayed here for a UW meeting. The place was packed and every room was taken. Despite the fact that the staff were slammed, they were very good. However, the room was tiny, dark and lacking in space. The bed was sagging in several spots and hard to get a decent night's slep. It was carammed and I was constantly bumping... More

We spent 2 nights here in our whirlwind week long visit to Washington and Oregon. The hotel was very clean and the location was fun. Being close to the University Village was a big plus. The breakfast was very good. My only complaint was our room was a bit noisy (1st floor by a door).
