Stayed three nights at the Silver Cloud-University. Nice and helpful staff. The rooms are dated. Free shuttle is a plus. The only issue other than the dated rooms was the location. Popular attractions are pretty easy by using the shuttle to public transportation. However area did not seem safe after dark and sometimes in the daytime. Would probably look for... More

We stayed here for 5 days during a family visit to Seattle attractions! We enjoyed the free breakfast and shuttle to the light rail. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is no pool, so they let us swim at another Silver Cloud hotel.

Nice, clean hotel with lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. And it's especially reasonably priced for Seattle. The lobby was under renovation in September, but it was handled well. I never heard any construction noise, and I'm sure it will be beautiful when completed. Don't miss dim sum at Din Tai Fung or fantastic ice cream at Molly... More

Hotel is completely remodeled and looks great. Breakfast was included in our stay and the food was great. Very convenient to UW Medical Center which is why we were there. Rate was affordable for the area and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Thank you George for the wonderful review. Please let everyone know I didn't pay you to say that. However, you did touch on several aspects which make our hotel the ideal choice when staying in the U-district. Whether it is for a medical appointment at the UW medical center, Seattle Children's Hospital or even visiting your student on campus, our... More

Room was clean, size OK (double bed). But they are very stingy with toiletries - removing half used shampoos and conditioners and not replenishing soap stock when necessary. Do not offer room service on a daily basis. Breakfast was not that bad: eggs, bacon, yogurt, bagels, and DIY waffels but nothing to write home about.

Thank you Nicky H for your review. I do hope all other aspects of your visit were acceptable. I am not sure what room you were staying in but we do not offer a "double" bed option. All of our rooms have either have a king or two queens in them. I do agree though, we fell short in the... More

We arrived after a long plane flight and having been up since 4am. It was 3 hours before check in, and they happily let us go to our room. This made all the difference in how our stay went. Can't thank the staff enough! Would definitely stay here again. Good breakfast too!

The rooms are clean and well-serviced albeit just a bit smaller than would be optimal..a minor matter. There are numerous positives here among them the fact that the rooms have microwaves, safes, and refrigerators. Many hotels have only two of these, but not all three. The staff is friendly and always seem eager to help in every way. The breakfast... More

Thanks RBJoelson for the great review. I agree, I would prefer to have a few more Jr. Suites to offer our guests. We have clientele who stay for extended periods of time ie: hospital and/or guest of the UW so a bit more elbow room would be nice. However, my owners would not like me wielding a sledge hammer any... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years, and it keeps getting better. As of this writing, the hotel is in the midst of a renovation of what was the old lobby. The breakfast room has been completely renovated and really functions well. (The space that the swimming pool once occupied is now part of the breakfast... More

I was here for the AROHE Conference. Although the hotel was undergoing some renovation, the staff were very professional. We had a good variety of breakfast choices and they kept the buffet well stocked. The light rail from the airport (SeaTac) to the University area stops near the Husky Stadium then you contact the hotel for their shuttle service. There... More

This is the best deal in Seattle. Everything clean, staff is super friendly...they can't do enough for every one and it's so easy to get to. Here's what you need to know: 1) Free parking, 2) Free breakfast (and it's really good!), 3) Every room is set up nice: sink outside the bath area, quiet A/C or heat, great in-room... More
