... say that the process of weeding out over half our belongings, selling one car, converting everything we could think of to "paperless," saying goodbye to friends and family, especially Dan's crew all gathered in Maine and Susie and Patty who just announced their engagement (yippee!), and packing the remainder of our belongings to be stored, we have had a physically and emotionally exhausting few weeks before departure. But ...
... a principis dels anys 70, amb la crisi energètica, Boeing va despedir 60,000 persones en 3 anys i Seattle va entrar en una forta recessió. La gent marxava de la ciutat a buscar feina a altres llocs. Així, va aparèixer una tanca a l'aeroport que deia "L'últim que marxi de Seattle, si us plau, que apagui els llums". Ara, Seattle és una de les ciutats amb un creixement més gran dels Estats Units.
... free hair gel to try, and he began sporting a "shock and awe" spiky style that I personally like a lot. And he does look much more groomed with a trim. My acrylic nails continue to grow out – painfully – but in another few months I hopefully will be back to natural nails. A condition my nails haven’t seen in literally decades. Sad. Catherine got sparkly pink toenails.

... and lots of other stuff. Loved the "Women Who Rock" exhibit the best, also the “Fantasy: World of Myth and Magic” exhibit. Pikes Place Market seemed too touristy for our taste, and there were a ton of people down there, so we did not bother with it. Overall Seattle felt really comfortable to me, loved the hip vibe, friendly down-home people, surprisingly steep streets and unique eclectic ...

The agent working my line has vanished. At 7:45, we are told there are only rooms available at the Sandstone Inn, a one-star property near the airport. At 8:00 I finally reach the supervisor on duty and discuss my situation. He goes to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Silver Cloud Inn - Lake Union Seattle
No clouds at The Sliver Cloud
Had a 1-night stay here in June en route to Vancouver. The rooms were huge, at least by European standards, and well equipped through. The complimentary breakfast buffet included fresh waffles. The shuttle service was a great help as the hotel is a bit to far from downtown to walk. The indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi is open 24hours and there is also an outdoor pool which I didn't get to try. The only negative marks were that the room decor was bit fussy and dated and the wash-basin was in the room rather than the bathroom so you get to see your travelling companion brushing their teeth !!!
It's great value and recommended.
A Wonderful Experience!
My family (including 2 teens) and I stayed at the Silver Cloud at Lake Union for 6 days. We had a lovely room that was plenty large enough for the four of us. The room included a microwave and a small fridge, which was a nice amenity and no extra charge to us. In addition to the 2 queen beds, there was a small pull-out sofabed, so each teen had a separate place to sleep (no fighting--yippee!). The free breakfast was ample and you can't beat the view from the dining area--it overlooks Lake Union. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the place--the maid service was awesome. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again. It's very close to the Seattle Center, and minutes to downtown. The free shuttle service and free parking were great benefits, too.
A hidden treasure
The Silver Cloud Inn exceeded our expectations! The place was clean and cozy...The Staff was kind and attentive to our every need...We loved the shuttle service...And the breakfast was much more than continental in my opinion...I have not one bad thing to report about this hotel...We will continue to stay there again and again when visiting Seattle...It truly is a hidden treasure from the many hotels in the Seattle area...
Loved Silver Cloud
We can only add to the rave reviews. Definitely a great hotel and a great bargain. We got a room for under $100 a night and were very happy with it. Very quiet, comfortable rooms. Staff was helpful and pleasant.
The breakfast was satisfying and we enjoyed the Tuesday night get-together which offered beer, wine, etc and snacks. The shuttle was a great convenience, as was the complimentary washer/dryer. We highly recommend Silver Cloud Inn!
Impressive for the price!
This is really a wonderful place in every respect. The view is great and it comes with nice balcony doors (no balcony). Be sure to ask for a high floor so you can see the Space Needle. Bathroom is great, beds are soft, reception friendly, and a free shuttle to downtown. Check out their web site for discounted rates. We stayed for only $100 a night.
I'd say a bargain compared to Seattle downtown hotels.
A Nice Cozy Spot
My husband and I give this hotel two thumbs up. The people are extremely friendly, and our room/bathroom was spacious enough to accommodate our traveling accessories. If you are looking for a place that feels like home, Silver Cloud Inn - Union Lake, can definitely live up to that standard. The complimentary breakfast is very pleasant, and the morning newspapers is a treat they provide you first thing in the morning.The price is affordable. I would recommend to check out their website first before going through any discounted travel websites.
This was an excellent hotel in every respect. The personnel were most accomodating and pleasent. The room was spotless and comforable. The hotel services were top notch.
What a find! This hotel has it all - here's a sampling: Big, clean and modern guest rooms (ours had a lovely view of Lake Union) with free high-speed internet access, microwave, mini-fridge and nice-sized TV.
Best Value We've Experienced in a Hotel!
The Sliver Cloud offers so much more than just a room. It's facilities are top notch in every way not to mention the best Continental Breakfast we've had at any hotel. Clean, friendly, spacious, great pools, and views! Also, the location makes for easy access to downtown Seattle and the major attractions you'll find there. We stay in Seattle a few times a year and always return to the Silver Cloud as my family won't stay anywhere else!
Quiet excellence at a great price
great location across from Lake Union at a very competitive price. beautiful rooms, some with a fireplace and view of Lake Union. Complimentary breakfast buffet and covered parking.Very accommodating livery service in the downtown area.
