Our first trip to Seattle. We were pleasantly surprised by the great view of the lake from our room mini-balcony. They had a free shuttle to downtown and space needle, which was very helpful though we had a car. Speaking of which, free parking was an added bonus at this hotel. The included breakfast, however, left much to be desired....

I had some doubts about this hotel because I booked it due to the lack of availability from others that I usually stay in. However, I was pleasantly surprised for many reasons. The breakfast buffet, in particular the coffee, was very satisfying and I didn't start the day with a "why didn't I just go to the cafe around the...

My husband and I stayed in Seattle for 3 days before heading to Spokane for a wedding. I read through all of the reviews for Seattle hotels and decided on the Silver Cloud Lake Union and we were not disappointed. As per instructions from other "tripers" we asked to have a lake view suite on the 7th floor I am...

Great price for a spacious suite. It had everything we needed and more. Beds were comfy (including the queen pull out). Free parking was amazing with safety features like a locking gate and surveillance.

This was one of many stays we've had at the Silver Cloud Lake Union. In fact, we used our Silver Clouds Rewards to pay for our room. We appreciated the "no hassle" aspect of cashing in our rewards. Our room was clean, comfortable, and large. The free breakfast, complimentary newspaper, free shuttle, and free parking were great, as well, I...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Silver Cloud South Lake Union. The staff is super helpful and professional. The hotel is clean, the room was spacious and we loved the lake view with seaplanes and boats. It can be a little noisy during the day with the seaplanes taking off if the window is open but that didn't bother...

Wonderful location with awesome views of Lake Union. Easy access to I-5. Free garage parking, free internet, free yummy hot breakfast buffet with waffles! Lovely large clean rooms with comfy beds. Polite, helpful front desk staff. We have stayed in other hotels in Seattle, but now would never stay anywhere else. We joined the Silver Rewards Club and have already...

This is one of those places that goes the extra mile, service wise. The hotel is nothing special, regular rooms, regular furniture, regular pool, etc. However, they kick regular up a notch. Very personable service at check in, LOVELY breakfast room, free shuttle to downtown, FREE parking. It's the small things that make it great. Location is close to downtown...
