“A good place to stay at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Spent 4 nights there. Hotels in Seattle are relatively expensive, but this hotel on the Lake Union offer a good quality for the price requested. Room was large and the price included a great breakfast.
Only one suggestion: the breakfast room at 3rd floor panorama-windowed was always too cold!

We started our 3 wk holiday here with a 2 night stay. We had a large bedroom with 2 queen beds overlooking the lake. Underground parking which was very convenient. There was a shuttle service to take us into the centre and picked us up when we wanted to return. No restaurant but breakfast was included albeit continental but was more than adequate. Staff were extremely helpful, special thanks to David originally from Wigan for his advice. Ate both nights at a Terrible Beauty, a local Irish pub.

Room Tip: Choose one at front of hotel for view of the lake

This was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The location was great, it is right on the trolley that goes downtown. From there you can walk to Pike Market. Be sure to get a room with a lake view. You can see the seaplanes take off. We used the free shuttle to go to the Space Needle and Pike Market. That is a great benefit instead of taking cabs. The breakfast was good, and included eggs and waffles. I would stay here again on my next trip to Seattle.

Room Tip: Get a room with a lake view.

I keep returning to this hotel even after the 20+ times I've stayed in Seattle. Why?
a) Rooms have a feel of home, most have fireplaces, a small kitchenette. This is not a sleek, swanky trendy hotel. It's comfortable, clean with superior guest services. It feels like a home in Seattle for me and centers me when I am in town for work.
b) Free (better than Fairfield Inn or Hyatt Place) breakfast, Free parking, Free wifi add to services that make a guest keep coming back.
c) Away from the bustling Seattle traffic and neighborhoods but close enough to drive to Pike's Place, downtown shopping, Queen Annes
d) Free shuttle pickup and service within the area. If you don't like driving, they will drop you off and pick you up. This has been one of my favorite services because parking in Seattle is a b*$ch close to New York prices. I've used the free shuttle a lot.
e) Can be a romantic hideaway....fireplaces
f) Focused and Responsive Hotel Staff.
g) Location feels like you are in a comfy Seattle neighborhood, away from it all yet you are really in downtown Seattle's backyard.

Cons: Turning in the snug parking lot can be a chore. Some of the views may feel a little industrial so ask for another room if you're not feeling the view.

Tip: Ask for a room with a Lake Union view (one side of the hotel). The higher up the better. You will see planes land on the water, super cool

Room Tip: Ask for a Lake Union view (sometimes, during peak, there is a $20 upgrade but worth it). Stay on th...

We were participating in a Dragon Boat festival in Seattle Lake Union. This hotel offered competitive rates, parking, breakfast, and convenient access to the festival.

The hotel is dated, but has been refurbished relatively well. You can smell the age of the hotel and feel some humidity from the pool as soon as you enter the building.

The rooms had very comfortable beds, standard amenities and somewhat modern finishings in the bathroom. I shared the room with two others, and there was enough room for the three of us to move about comfortably.

Breakfast was most impressive. I do not traditionally get excited about hotel breakfast, but the Silver Cloud had many healthy choices. All the items were well presented and it was clean and stocked with many staff on hand to help.

Front desk staff were extremely helpful and courteous.

A great stay - would not hesitate to recommend.

This was the start of our holiday and booked this on recommendation of trip adviser, it was a good choice great rooms, clean, good breakfast, staff very helpful, location was good with Irish bar across the road and other facilities, also a free shuttle service we used to get to down town (pike place market etc) I highly recommend this hotel and glad I chose it.

Room Tip: We just had a normal room middle of hotel and found it quite and comfortable.

This hotel is clean and the service was terrific. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. We have stayed in several other hotels throughout Seattle (in fact, this is our 10th different hotel) and the Silver Cloud was surprisingly nice. I expected less (because of the price) but was very happily surprised. Free downtown shuttle, free wi-fi, free breakfast, free parking... and the final bill was MUCH less than downtown hotels. It is right next to the Fred Hutchison Cancer Center and directly across the street from Lake Union. Several restaurants and bars were within walking distance. The only downside is parking can be awkward at first as you have to have a room key to enter the parking garage and it is difficult to describe to guests where to park (I still am not clear on this).
