Hotel's Favorite
We stayed at the Silver Cloud Seattle Lake Union for about a week with 9 people. This place was fantastic! First, the hotel arranged for a shuttle to pick us up at the airport and take us to the hotel (separate charge) and also to take us back to the airport when we checked out a week later. We were also able to get an early check in and a late check out, with rooms next to each other. A big bonus: hot breakfast is included! On Tues evenings there was a mini happy hour (free!) which included cheese, pita chips, hummus, fresh fruits and roasted veggies, huge shrimp cocktail, and local beer and wine. Another huge bonus: free parking, a rarity in Seattle. Also: free laundry. Each floor has a washer/dryer unit which you can use at no charge. Also: free shuttle service between the hotel, Pike's market, Space needle, and Westlake Center, where you can pretty much catch either the bus, monorail, or light rail to anywhere in the city for cheap (orca pass). The shuttle ran about every 30-60 minutes, just call the front desk to reserve a time or request a pick up at one of the downtown locations. Other perks: 24 hour fitness center, business center, free tea/coffee/newspaper in the lobby, spacious room with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, additional sink outside the bathroom, 2 queen beds and a sofa, lots of charging stations for electronics. Duke's chowder house is right across the street, but nearby eateries are limited. I would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks, Silver Cloud!

When you telephone the Silver Cloud Inn Seattle-Lake Union, the voice you'll hear is the general manager, Matthew Jones. The first time I stayed there, I had a bit of a hiccup, but without question, Matthew, resolved the matter beyond expectation. There's also a front office manager, Breegan Hatcher, who is equally positive customer experience-driven service. The front desk staff, the dining area staff, housekeeping staff, they all have managed my stay there with absolute professional care. The city of Seattle is an sensory overload experience. Silver Cloud at Lake Union lives up to its namesake! Thank you very much Matthew, Breegan, and staff. We really appreciate you folks.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on the first day of our holiday in N.W U.S. It has a great location on the south end of scenic Lake Union and is not far from downtown Seattle and the iconic Space Needle could be seen in the distance from our 7th floor window being only 20mins away. The room layout suggests it is for ideal for business stop-over use. The bathroom doesn't include a wash basin which is located just outside the bathroom in the lobby, which makes it rather awkward to use for teeth, shaving etc. The wardrobe hanging space is fine but there were only 3 small drawers for small clothes storage for use between the two of us. A complimentary breakfast is an enjoyable offering and the hotel features an excellent local area shuttle service which is really useful to avoid driving and particularly parking when visiting the busy city centre.

We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn - Lake Union for 6 days for business. The rooms are adequate, kept nice and clean, and the breakfast is great. What makes this hotel a 5* is the customer service. The front desk staff go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. We utilized their advice and help several times and were never disappointed. Lamar was especially helpful and we appreciated him a lot! The hotel is a bit out of "downtown" Seattle, but a really nice walk through the area got you there in no time. We'll definitely be staying here again!
