Short visit, great view

This was the only hotel I could find with opening near Lake Union on short notice. Great location. Friendly staff. Expensive, but it was the tourist season so that is to be expected. No issues.

My stay at the Silver Cloud on Lake Union

The staff were very nice, I was surprised about the pool's availability in a pleasant way. Everything was very clean and well kept. The parking situation wasn't the best scenario and I ended up having to park across the street because there were far too many other guests taking up multiple parking spaces in "compact" mark spots despite the signs of "Do not use more than one space" so you know it's been an issue in the past. I also didn't appreciate the 9am knock on my door for the maids to try to clean a room that I wasn't ready to check out of yet and had just woken up. This was with a Do Not Disturb sign on the door and the bolt latched. They also knocked so quietly before trying to enter that I didn't hear them at first and was quiet upset at the intrusion. The breakfast was nice and also unexpected. Overall it wasn't bad and it served my needs but I think it would be nice if the front desk offered some warning and alternatives to the parking situation and a door knock any earlier than 11am is a privacy intrusion. I'm not sure if I would stay here again as a vacation spot because there are better and closer hotels to the downtown area but if you can get a room with a view, it's not the worst and much better than a Motel 6.

The Space Needle, EMP, and Pacific Science center are a very short drive or a very long walk.

Great location

The location, free parking, great breakfast and shuttle service make this a great value. The only negative comment was that the pool was out of commission during our visit. No restaurant on premises but we enjoyed Duke's which was right across the street with a lake view.

If you want to go from Pikes fish market to the space needle the best, easiest and cheapest way is I found is by the monorail. Just a short walk to the station.

Silver Cloud Inn - Seattle - Lake Union

met our needs perfectly. It was within walking distance to nice restaurants on the harbor, and it is right next to the trolley that took us within walking distance of all the attractions downtown (for a great price).

Near the interstate but free parking!

It was much closer to the Interstate than we expected. When we asked for a room away from the road we were told that wasn't possible without going through Orbirz. - suggestion is to ask for this at the time of registration! It was great to have free parking, another hotel we stayed in earlier in the vacation charged $35 per day! Some desk staff were super helpful particularly a young man who helped us choose restaurants.

The young man on the desk suggested Serrafina and a sister restaurant Cecchetti, north of the hotel. They were about 1/2 hour walk. We chose cecchetti - a tapas restaurant. The waiter was very helpful and knowledgable and we had a great evening.

Roomy and elegant

We loved our stay. Our hotel room had two rooms and doors that opened like a balcony. We had the water side view and it was beautiful. There was a fridge and a microwave and 24 hour access to the pool and got tub. There was continental breakfast and a great sitting area outside and inside on the third floor. I really recommend this hotel.

Nice, clean hotel

I had a nice stay at the Silver Cloud inn at Lake Union. We liked that the area had a few restaurants in walking distance along the marina, nice part of town too. The continental breakfast was a perfect way to start our day each morning. Rooms were cozy and clean.

Great Stay!!!

I love staying at this hotel. Did my washing using the free washer & dryer on each floor. Only disappointment was I booked a lakeview room for 2 nights on a higher floor. The 1st night my room was on the 3rd floor & I had a very limited view of the lake. Luckily I was able to move to a 7th floor room & the view was fantastic. The lakeview rooms with such a limited view should be cheaper than the rooms with a great view. Also was disappointed the shuttle didn't run early enough (6:30 am) to take me to the Amtrak Station.
