Clean and comfortable with a nice view of Lake Union. We really appreciated free parking, free internet, and free breakfast. Other nearby hotels charge for all of these. The shuttle drivers were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

The hotel was recommended to me by a business associate. It is very clean and looks well run. I liked the fact it was close to down town yet has a view of lake Union across the street. Breakfast, parking and Internet is included,so the over all value is good. I will stay again.

I selected this hotel based on the previous reviews, included Wi-Fi and parking on site -- it did not disappoint! The location of this hotel is great, right across the street from the lake, and just a few minutes from downtown, Space Needle, etc. I had a partial view of the lake which was lovely (701). The room was a... More

Stayed at the hotel following my brothers shoulder surgery. The staff were friendly, very helpful, considerate and accompanying. Breakfast buffet was deliciously delightful with something for anyone's preference or diet limits. A lovely meet and greet held on Tuesdays offered free snacks, wine and beer in a lovely setting. Can not say enough about the wonderful experience. Oh, it was... More

Our huge room looked out over Lake Union, the fireplace was nice too. We stay at Silver Cloud hotels whenever we come through Seattle - the included breakfast is nice, there are washing machines and dryers on site and the Lake Union location is ideal for forays into downtown Seattle on foot or via the street car. Beds are great,... More

Excellent hotel. Lovely room and furnishings. Breakfast was nice, however very crowded seating. Excellent shuttle service. Close to Lake Union. If you want to be close enough to the centre of Seattle to walk everywhere, this is a little far, however Lake Union is a lovely area, and the shuttle driver will drop you off and pick up up from...
