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.
Upon arrival, we were placed in a non-smoking room that reeked of tobacco, no fault of the hotel. To their credit, we were immediately moved to another room. The room furnishings were most comfortable. The breakfast was good.
There were two remarkable services that were provided. First, there was a van that went wherever we wanted to go and picked us up from the destinations. This was gratis [tho we did tip the driver.] Not only were we taken, we were also informed about good restaurants. Second, the hotel provided free do it yourself laundry service. We appreciated the opportunity to do a wash.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone - even my mother who is most picky.
Loved this Place - A Phenomenal Value!
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.
Excellent complementary breakfast including make-your-own waffles, fresh fruit, pasteries, cereals, hard-boiled eggs, etc. Complimentary drop-off and pick-up shuttle service to and from tourist destinations.
Both an indoor and an outdoor pool (each with hot tubs). Complimentary use of washers and dryers. Free parking. Located across the street from many good restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff. We spent three nights at this location with our three daughters, and we all adored it - we have already sung its praises to all our Seattle area friends and family. We will definitely stay there whenever in town. Must be the best value in Seattle - don't miss it!
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.

After leaving Seattle last night and when we went to bed we could hear the massive fog horn blasting away, and still when we awoke it was still blasting away, and the fog lasted nearly all day then finally cleared about 1500 . Breakfast was the usual huge meal if you could fit it in, so a light meal for me today, then the morning was an explorational exercise, finding our way around this massive ship. It is so big, I have ...
... 160;They told me to fill out a claim online and I would be notified when it was found. We are all keeping our fingers crossed. Back at the hotel we ate and the boys wanted to swim. Our room is very nice, with our own little patio overlooking the outdoor heated pool. It was a shock to see it dark at 9:00pm again, but the boys still swam until the pool closed and then we all collapsed. Tomorrow we will spend the day exploring ...
... it for real. Although, he needs a good clean. He's pretty sandy and dusty, making the red car he clutches pretty brown, and his metal eye lacks a bit of its fierce shine. A nice surprise came in the form of some blackberry bushes nearby, and we picked plenty of juicy ones to fill our stingy bellies.
Next up we rode a short distance to the Gas Works Park, which was right on Lake Union with a killer view of the city. Once a gasification plant for all ...
After taking us down to the beachfront to view the city from the other side of the water, Jim and Catherine drove us into the city where we parked near the Space Needle, (We had planned to go up the Needle but apparently so did about a trillion other people so we decided another time would be good). We then took the monorail down to the Pike Place Market Area. Here we saw the first original Starbucks shop - it was packed full of ...
