I spent a week at the Silver Cloud. My husband is in a wheelchair and there was, unlike most places, plenty of accessible (free!) parking. It was in a convenient location, easy to get in and out of. It felt over-priced, but I imagine that was a combination of Seattle and that we were near the university during graduation time.... More

Great staff, clean rooms, centrally located, plenty of parking. If you get a room toward the back of the hotel the internet will not work well, and you will be continually frustrated. If the internet is not important to you..then it won't matter. Very nice full breakfast every morning as well. I would have given it five stars had it... More

This hotel is in a good location near the University of Washington, and right next to the University Village Mall. The hotel staff was super friendly, the hotel was clean and quiet, and there was a breakfast included. While there were many positives to staying here, I feel it was overpriced for the type of hotel. The breakfast was mediocre,... More

Went to pickup son from University of Washington and the because of the graduation, marathon and US Open going on all the hotels and inns were booked solid. Found this gem of a hotel which has ample parking, close to university mall for food and other items and 2 king sized beds in each room. Pretty decent hotel if all... More

Very friendly front desk staff. Nice hotel in great neighborhood. Excellent breakfast. Rooms are up to date and very relaxing environment. Quiet and comfortable. If you are in the university area this is a nice place to stay. Convenient shuttle available too.

I've stayed at the Silver Cloud for many years whenever I visited a federal facility on Sand Point. It's been a couple of years since I've been back to Seattle, but during a recent stay, it was like coming home. This is a comfortable, not flashy, hotel, perfect for families, students,students' parents business travelers. An ample breakfast including fresh fruit... More

Breakfast in the morning was a nice suprise. Had a differnt variety each day and hot items were available. The front desk was very helpful with local information and the free shuttle was perfect for our wedding party.

We had stayed at this hotel back in January and because of the excellent UW Medical Center shuttle service provided by Jon we decided to stay here again. He was once again such an excellent driver and navigated some rather nasty traffic very safely and calmly. This was so appreciated as I was already very anxious as I was having... More

We stayed as part of a wedding group and couldn't have been happier with the hotel. Excellent customer service, and just blocks from the university, stadium and shopping at the University Village. The Burke-Gilman trail is just behind the hotel, and we later learned that this provides running, walking, cycling access to the waterfront area, just five miles away. We... More

Maintenance guy thought the room was empty at 9pm at night and tried barging into the room. Scared my little ones to death! When I brought it up with the manager that night and in the morning they did make it right. Rooms are decent and breakfast is good. Average for the price we paid. Not spectacular and other than...
