“trip to alaska”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This review is part of our 1st time 18 day trip to Alaska taken in july 2013. The weather was exceptional and we recommend everybody makes this pilgrimage to a place where you are traveling in art. On our 1st night we stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn in Tacoma WA. Our ocean view room was spacious and clean with a whirlpool tub out in the room (which we didn't need). The included buffet breakfast was very good, and the inn is very close to many waterfront restaurants. The only minus we noted was that a public pier surrounds the hotel but we experienced no problems. Overall we would highly recommend this hotel and give it a solid A

Room Tip: unless you need the whirlpool tub, opt out for a little more floor space

Our stay at Silver Cloud was really nice and quiet. The breakfast was nice and the lobby and eating areas provided enough room for everyone to sit. Our room was large and comfortable and, most importantly - clean. The staff seemed eager to help and gave us a good recommendation for dinner. The inn is right on the water and the surrounding area is very nice for an evening walk or morning run.

Room Tip: We requested a room on the uppermost floor and were very happy with the view and the quiet.

We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn over the 4th of July to enjoy the air show and fireworks display over the Tacoma waterfront, and to avoid fighting the crowds and the driving/parking hassle. The staff were incredibly well-organized and helpful, our Jacuzzi room was perfect for us, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We absolutely loved that they reserved the pier in front of the hotel specifically for hotel guests - what a great way to enjoy the evening!

Room Tip: Book early - the hotel fills up fast over the 4th, and a 2-night stay is generally required.

My recent weekend stay at the Silver Cloud Inn far exceeded my expectations. Checking in early on Friday, the very pleasant and professional manager accommodated my early check in with no hassle. I found my room (King room with fireplace, huge flatscreen TV) to be a cozy delight. The views are amazing, both at sunrise and sunset. I was pleasantly surprised with array of items served at the complimentary breakfast in the morning. Having to do some business during my stay, I was thrilled with the high speed internet and did not experience any problems. The Inn's location was fantastic- a short walk to many restaurants, the local Starbucks and several piers for great photo ops. I would absolutely recommend this Inn to anyone traveling to the Tacoma area.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and get a room with a fireplace!

My parents recently stayed here for a night on their 40th anniversary road trip. To help make their stay more special, I called ahead to pay to upgrade their room and have some extras in their room when they arrived. The GM, Dan O'Leary, personally called me to help arrange to make my parents's stay perfect. He went to the store himself to pick up a basket of treats to put in their room. And I paid to upgrade their room from a King Waterfront room, to a a Deluxe King Waterfront room with a fireplace. When they arrived, the hotel had put them in an even nicer room way out over the water, with a jacuzzi tub and everything - on the house! The hotel was very accommodating in helping me make the stay special for my parents, and my parents had a great room with a great view. The hotel, and their GM, went above and beyond and certainly earned a 5 star rating!

My wife and I stayed a few nights in one of the Inn's better rooms. The room was comfortable, well equipped (2 large screen LCD TV sets, small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, iron etc). and had a great view of the bay. The complimentary breakfast was adequate with a few nice touches like self-made waffles. All of the grounds and common areas were clean and well kept. The staff was excellent, they were efficient, very helpful, and friendly including all of those we just passed in the halls. I wouldn't call the Inn elegant but it was nice and well maintained. It seemed to have a fair number of business travellers staying there. The inn may be a little overpriced, but was a nice place to stay on Tacoma's waterfront.

Room Tip: Don't spend extra for a better room. All of the rooms appear to be well equipped and all have s...

We stayed two nights here and loved it. The rooms overlook the water and the windows are huge. There are several restaurants up and down the waterfront here and it's easy access to other areas: we're about 2 blocks from Old Town. We had problems with our air conditioner and the guy was there to fix it almost before we hung up the phone. The rooms have a refrigerator (empty - not stuffed with things to buy!) and a microwave and there is breakfast in the lobby (including two hot items and blueberry and regular waffles). The newspaper they leave at the door is the local paper but they have USA Today in the lobby. The train goes by several times a day and night but it wasn't disurbing. We stayed one night at the Hotel Murano (awful) and then switched to the Silver Cloud and it was like night and day. Breakfast, parking and internet were all included at Silver Cloud and rooms, location and staff were all better at Silver Cloud. We'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Request as far out on the water as possible.
