Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I am a Silver Cloud member and frequent guest. Whenever I travel to the Sea-Tac area I stay in one of their properties. We have stayed at the Lake Union and University properties in Seatle and both waterfront hotels in Tacoma. All the hotels are convenient, clean, modern, and comfortable. Staff are professional and friendly. Breakfast is as good or better than other chains. The breakfast room is comfy and roomy; we never feel crowded or rushed. The hotels are as close to being a home-away-from-home as we can get while traveling. We will return.

We had an appointment at SCCA so the location of this hotel is perfect. Room was very nice and we received a discount since we are a patient at SCCA. Hint: If you have an SUV or pickup and are parking your car at the hotel skip the lower garage and go up the ramp for parking.

What distinguishes this hotel is it's location on Lake Union, near downtown, and it's breakfast. The buffet includes eggs (which may be made from powder, but still ok,) juices, cereal, bacon, sausage, breads, fruit and even waffles to cook for yourself. If you stay for a long time, it can get monotonous, but still a great start to the day. It is always clean and quiet. I've stayed here many times and recommended it to friends and family.

Stayed 5 nights here. Had a corner room on the top floor, lovely view of the lake. Room came with a sofa bed, so room slept 5 which would make it good value Expensive for just 2 of us though. Would've been better if sofa (bed) had been facing the lake view, instead it was facing the interior of room, and was too heavy to be moved. Buffet breakfast is not good. Plentiful, but like many American hotel breakfasts, a lot of sugary options. with unappealing scrambled eggs, sausages, etc. Beds comfortable, although they have strangely small pillows. Had to ask front desk for another blanket, as no extra blankets provided in room. Very poor lighting at night... why do US hotels not provide decent lighting?

Good hotel except without swimming pool, very neat and clean room ! If swimming pool can be added , it definitely add value. The view is pretty nice as well that we can see lake and space needle from window.

Do not pass up an opportunity to stay at the Silver Cloud. The staff is exceptional from housekeeping to the front desk. Excellent amenities. We were able to step right outside of our hotel and hop on a trolly or go for an evening stroll along the lake. Highly recommended!

Great hotel! We had two queen beds and a sofa bed. Plenty of room for our family! The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is great. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the deck outside. We loved the view of the lake. The proximity to the streetcar was nice, but we walked the 1.5 miles to the sites we were interested in. Great stay!

OK - Lake Union is not Seattle itself but it was a 1.2 mile walk from where the light rail from the airport let off - directly North. Yes, there's a bus but we decided to hoof it - similarly as we did the next day to the cruise port. Affordable (for Seattle), big rooms, immaculate, and a very solid breakfast - much better than your Hampton Inn, etc. I say immaculate because as a work traveler, I stay in lots of hotels - you find hairs on the bed or in the bathtub, etc. You can tell those who work here have pride. Interestingly, it seemed like half of Seattle was closed down (restaurants, etc.) including most Starbucks. I asked - why - lack of labor. There was four people at the front desk. The comment made was the owner pays fairly - that's why we are so well staffed. Hadn't heard of the hotel til I found it on Expedia....but what a winner!!! I see there's more properties - so I hope to visit others in the future.

We stayed 6 nights at the Silver Cloud and absolutely loved it. The staff was accommodating for our very late check in and super early check out (1am and 3am). The hotel is extremely clean. The location is on a beautiful park overlooking the water. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Seattle!
