Check in/reception staff were extremely friendly & welcoming. The 24hr pool is a hit with the kids and the waffle making station was a added bonus to the included breakfast. The internet in the business center was disappointingly slow. There are restaurants worth trying a short drive away if you are on a budget and the waterfront restaurants are not...

We stayed for two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed it. There were several in our group and it was nice to have a suite to meet in as well as the very comfortable and spacious lakeview room. My suite had a beautiful view of Lake Union and surroundings. The breakfast was good, with an attentive staff who replenished...

I booked this hotel on Travelocity as one of it's last minute deals and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is newly renovated, very clean and the service was fantastic. Close to downtown and amenities. I would highly recommend it.

We chose this hotel based on customer review. However, the condition of the hotel was very much below our expectation. The hotel is worn out & needs renovation. The breakfast quality was average. Not many varieties. However, the hotel offered a very nice shuttle service to downtown attractions. Also reception staff were extremely friendly & welcoming.

We have stayed her for graduations, weddings, for business, and for a fun weekend! The staff, the rooms, and the food are always of top quality. We would highly recommend Silver Cloud Lake Union! Walk to great restaurants, or ask for the shuttle to downtown; always a nice experience!

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were here for 3 nights. It's just barely on the outskirts of the city that you still feel like you are downtown. The continental breakfast is very good with a lot of selection. The hotel was clean, and the amenities were good. The mattresses were a little firmer than our liking. The free...

I was very pleased with my stay at the Silver Cloud Inn. The room was spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the view of Lake Union was beautiful. Breakfast and the breakfast room were a pleasant addition to our stay. The front desk staff were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

This was my first time at this hotel. I was here on business only for one night. The hotel is basic, but clean, and efficient. I had a very big room with a king bed. There is a nice complimentary breakfast. There is a pool, gym, whirlpool, sauna etc. the room even had a gas fireplace. More than I expected...

We recently stayed here in a suite room which was very nice, spacious, very clean and well appointed. The bed was super comfy, great heating and the ability to open a window or two for fresh air if needed. we did have a view of Lake Union but as there is no balcony/deck it was kind of a bit wasted...
