“Comfortable and Convenient Hotel in Seattle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Clean hotel with essential amenities. The kids had fun in the indoor pool and the free shuttle we took to the Space Needle and Pike Place Market was very helpful and welcomed. The free breakfast, though crowded (at times) and simple, was convenient. We had a suite that included a pull out couch, so our family of four fit comfortably. The staff, including the shuttle drivers, were all very helpful and cheerful.

All in all, the Silver Cloud Inn was convenient and comfortable. We would stay there again for future visits to Seattle.

I should've written this review earlier, but three months after our last stay, I still have vivid memories of our 6-night stay. I stayed with 2 senior citizens, my brother and my toddler. The breakfast room has a nice view of the lake, so even if our room's balcony looked out the highway, it wasn't a problem because we get the lake view every morning anyways. I had to keep the balcony doors closed the entire time after I caught my toddler trying to climb up the balcony! The breakfast spread was the same the entire time we were there --- sausages, eggs, waffle makers for freshly made do-it-yourself waffles, fruits, oatmeal and cereals, muffins and bread. We took advantage of the shuttle service to Pike Place, Space Needle, Chinatown and to the port where we took a ferry to Bainbridge Island. At the end of each day, we only had to call the reception for the shuttle to pick us up!!! How nice is that yeah? There was car seat too so i didn't need to lug around a bulky car seat :) all in all, our first time in Seattle was great because we stayed here :)

Seattle hotels are sure expensive in the summer. We paid almost $200/night for just an average hotel room with a view of the parking lot. We wanted a hotel close to downtown but where we would not have to pay to park our rental car. For those purposes, the Silver Cloud Inn was perfectly fine. The shuttle into downtown as a pleasant bonus. I just have to think that $200/night could have gotten us something a bit nicer.

My husband and I had to attend a wedding in Seattle on Lake Union and we decided to stay in town that night. We chose the Silver Cloud because it was close to the wedding venue and good rates. They were very accommodating giving us an early check in if we needed it, when we did check in we were given an upgrade to a view room which was really nice. They serve a great breakfast in a really roomy eating area with an outside balcony. Our stay as short but we would defiantly stay again.

Room Tip: There is a shuttle service you can take to the downtown and water front in Seattle so you can leave...

We chose this hotel to be close to Lake Union in order to enjoy the 4th of July fireworks show and also because the hotel had very high ratings from TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and efficient. We loved that this hotel had amenities included such as hot breakfast, secure on-site parking and wi-fi. Overall, it was very good value for our short stay. Location was also excellent for fireworks viewing; we just had to cross the street and found a good vantage point on the water a short walk away.

This location was also nice because it was quieter and less busy being in the downtown (yet still very close by car) and very accessible to the freeway. Although we didn't use the hotel shuttle service, I imagine it would be very convenient for getting to the major tourist attractions downtown.

Room Tip: There are 2 levels of parking. We preferred to park in the upper level (Level 2) because there were...

Very comfortable and clean for moms and dads traveling with children. Nice indoor pool and jacuzzi and work out facility. Free washer and dryer on every floor for guest use! That's huge for a family like mine on a long road trip. They also have shuttle service to all major hot spots in the downtown Seattle area, drop off and pick up, which we figured out is important because parking is tough, especially anywhere near Pike Place Market. I wish we had Silver Cloud Inns all over the U.S.

Room Tip: Request a suite with kids

We stayed here because we thought it would be a great location and it has free parking just outside the city centre. We were very pleased with the location in a 7th floor room overlooking Lake Union. There was always something going on, seaplanes sailboats rowing boats etc. the walk by the lake is very nice too. There is a free shuttle bus every 30 mins to downtown and a streetcar for $2.50 to west lake centre from just down the road. Good free breakfast . Friendly welcoming staff and very clean and good condition hotel. Very easy to visit the Space needle, Pike Place and the Boeing centre. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: High floor have best view overlooking the lake
