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

This really is the ideal hotel if you're not needing the "Seattle experience." My husband and I return to Seattle twice a year to see family, and this has become our go-to hotel. They offer a free shuttle within a three-mile radius, and have a really great breakfast included in their daily rate. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Exercise lovers?... More

Great hotel. This hotel offers free parking, free wifi, and a pretty good free breakfast in the morning. The breakfast offers make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, potatoes, and sausages, plus a variety of muffins, Bagels, and danishes. It's a short ride to downtown and it's surrounded by restaurants. This hotel reminds me of a Embassy Suites or a Crowne... More

I just saw your review Jakob, and wanted to say thanks. Our hotel doesn't "nickle and dime" our guests. Yes, we do have to charge a nightly rate (sorry folks). But at the end of your visit there is no sticker shock with parking/wi-fi/resort fees. We pride ourselves in providing a friendly and comfortable experience, and the location doesn't hurt... More

Seattle is beautiful. the views are breathtaking. the silver cloud inn is nice. I am disappointed they took out the pool for the breakfast area though. the continental breakfast was good. hot and tasty. I was disappointed they only change the bedding every 3 days.

Thanks Beckie for the review. I hope you were able to get a little free time to enjoy some of Seattle. As for the pool, that was a decision we labored over for quite awhile. The ability to provide a more spacious room for gathering/breakfast was on the top of our list and unfortunately we could not have both. Our... More

This was a great hotel with very nice staff. The breakfast area was bright and loaded with sunshine through big windows. Family oriented. The rooms look well used but were clean. Breakfast was nice. Although I was looking for local produce, like berries, but pretty standard fare instead. Construction in the front. A lot of cigarette butts in parking area... More

Thanks for the review. I appreciate the feedback re: our breakfast. As much as I would love to bring a more "farm to table" approach to the menu, it is not an option at this time. You will be excited to know however, we are getting closer to completing our bar/bistro concept area called Ag 47 (periodic table). As for... More

Great location for easy access to Seattle Children's Hospital. Room was clean, breakfast was tasty, & service was excellent. Room rate was a bit more than I prefer to pay, but it's location was perfect. Will seriously consider staying here again.

We wanted lodging in that area of the University District and knew of the Silver Cloud from a previous stay. It is more expensive than we are used to and it had the best location, has above average variety and quality of breakfast materials, and the rooms are somewhat larger than typical. It has that extra in comforts that set... More

If you are looking to stay near UW or Seattle Children's Hospital, this is the hotel to stay at. The staff is very friendly, decent breakfast, and right next to multiple restaurants and shops. Rooms could use some updating, but they are clean and comfortable!
