Silver Cloud Inn Seattle - Lake Union

Certificate of Excellence

They have a nice free breakfast and newspaper, small swimming pool and hot tub. Secured parking. Rooms vary in size and some have soaking tubs in the room. You can get king and double queen beds. The downside is not all rooms face the Lake. On the back side you can hear a low roar of the I-5 traffic. Easy walking distance to numerous restaurants on Lake Union. Shuttle service was great.

Staff is always very friendly and service is always amazing! The breakfast is really good. I look forward to my waffle at the Silvercloud everytime I travel to Seattle. My room has always been exceptionally clean and the view from the room is good.

Great hotel. Very clean. Very courteous staff. Jacuzzi was more than relaxing. Exercise room is more than could possibly be expexted.. Location is very close to nearby tourist attractions and shuttle service every 30 min.
We had a great time.

The Lake Union Silver Cloud includes comfortable rooms, free secure parking, complimentary hot breakfast, coffee in your room and the lobby, and a free shuttle to downtown locations-what's not to like? The Silver Cloud's are known for their good service, and their staff couldn't be more accommodating. This hotel is very close to being a 4 star. It would benefit from an updated decor in rooms, and real rather than that awful powdered cream for coffee, but the hotel is quite nice, and includes a large swimming pool. The free parking is an unusual amenity in Seattle, and adds to the already high quality. This hotel would be an excellent choice for longer stays, and is very close to major medical centers and hospitals.

We stayed here for 4 days in late March. It was great. The hotel was in a nice area of town. You can see Lake Union right across the street. The main lobby was very nice and the staff very friendly. Our room was on the 3rd floor, which was great because that was the floor with the breakfast buffet. The buffet was awesome, waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, coffee, juice, fruit, and sweet rolls. It was very filling. And the view was beautiful. We had a king size room. It was very spacious. No complaints. We used the pool & hot tub on the first floor. It was excellent. Really good after a day of walking around museums. When we went, there was no one else there.

The main plus for this hotel is the complimentary shuttle service. We did rent a car but we never had to drive it around town. We used the shuttle everyday. It goes the three main areas downtown, the Space Needle, Pike Place & Pioneer Square. The drivers were very fast and really talkative. We only had one instance where we had to wait for the next shuttle but the driver was so nice, he dropped us off at a restaurant we were eyeing on the way back. Great guy. We gave the drivers $2-$3 per ride as a tip.

The only bad thing I can say about the hotel is here were some spots in the hallways where you could see some wear & tear of the hotel like some stained and scraped wallpaper. But there aren't many spots like that.

Overall, this was a great deal and I'm really happy we chose this hotel. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor and be on the same floor of the breakfast buffet. :)

I can't say enough good things about Silver Cloud Inn. We just finished a three night stay here with our two kids, and we had a great time. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool was fun for the kids. The breakfast buffet was a perfectly functional way to get a simple breakfast before starting your day (the buffet did get crowded, which is to be expected). Best of all was the staff: they were always courteous and friendly and worked hard to make their guests comfortable. The shuttle to major Seattle sites was really handy as well. We've stayed at a lot of places in Seattle. If you want a functional and comfortable place to stay, it will be hard to beat Silver Cloud Inn.

Room Tip: While you have to pay extra, the 7th floor rooms on the Lake side have stunning views.
