We really enjoyed our stay here. We were here for 3 nights. It's just barely on the outskirts of the city that you still feel like you are downtown. The continental breakfast is very good with a lot of selection. The hotel was clean, and the amenities were good. The mattresses were a little firmer than our liking. The free...

I was very pleased with my stay at the Silver Cloud Inn. The room was spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the view of Lake Union was beautiful. Breakfast and the breakfast room were a pleasant addition to our stay. The front desk staff were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

This was my first time at this hotel. I was here on business only for one night. The hotel is basic, but clean, and efficient. I had a very big room with a king bed. There is a nice complimentary breakfast. There is a pool, gym, whirlpool, sauna etc. the room even had a gas fireplace. More than I expected...

We recently stayed here in a suite room which was very nice, spacious, very clean and well appointed. The bed was super comfy, great heating and the ability to open a window or two for fresh air if needed. we did have a view of Lake Union but as there is no balcony/deck it was kind of a bit wasted...

We've stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn on Lake Union many times before & you can't beat the value! The rooms are CLEAN and roomy, and the rooms with a view of Lake Union are incredible! The biggest draw for us, unlike ANY other hotel in Seattle, is FREE secured parking, FREE breakfast, and FREE shuttle service to & from...

We enjoyed our stay at the Silver Cloud. Hannah at check in was very nice. We received a king room that faced Lake Union, with views of the Space Needle. The breakfast was fine, and our room was great for our stay. We would stay here again.

Great hotel with nice complimentary breakfast and free shuttle service. Friendly front desk staff. Pool could have been a little warmer and cleaner. Rooms were always clean. Cool to see the sea planes take off and land. Nearby Museum of History and Industry, South Lake Union train, and views of mega yachts was fun. Of course space needle in backdrop...

Hotel staff and room accommodation were excellent. Basic breakfast included. If traffic noise will bother you, ask for a room on the back side of the building. Indoor pool on site and good exercise facility. Shuttle service provided to downtown core but also walkable if you like to walk (about 1 mile)
