We booked our room through a discount travel company that doesn't show you the property name until you pay. I had specified a room in downtown Seattle, so I was really surprised when I saw our room was at the Silver Cloud Broadway. Not only is it on Capitol Hill, it is on the south end of Capitol Hill, which isn't the best neighborhood (I'm being nice). If you have business at the hospital or at Seattle U, it would be perfect, but for those of you wanting to hit Pike Place Market and other downtown sites, you may feel a bit isolated. You will (probably) need to drive or take the convenient shuttle service provided by the hotel.
Okay - location aside: this is a sweet charmer of a hotel! We had two queen beds and the room was large and VERY comfortable. I’m a big fan of fresh air, and they have these cool windows that leaver (?) out and away from the frame to let in just enough air. Others complained about sirens around the hospital, but that was not a problem for us at all. Aveda bath products are always a plus for me, as is a comfy bed with crisp linens – the room was just incredibly well appointed for the price! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Bonus points for Jimmy’s bar, who turned my husband and me on to our new favorite drink: A Dark and Stormy! Dark rum, hand-crafted Ginger Brew, and lime. So tasty - maybe that’s why we never heard any sirens! If you have business in this neighborhood, or don’t mind taking transportation to other parts of the city, definitely consider the lovely and well-appointed Silver Cloud for your Seattle stay.
