Stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn University District for 3 nights in late March while I was in town for a workshop. The Silver Cloud is in an excellent location if you need to be near the University of Washington. Check-in was very quick and efficient. All of the staff members I interacted with during my stay were friendly and...

The Hotel is close to UW and close to the University Mall. It is a basic but well appointed hotel. Rooms are big enough and the comfort level is adequate for the price. Public areas are tidy and there is plenty of parking. The shuttle service is very good and efficient. Kudos for the free breakfast and the free wi-fi...

5 min walk from University Village mall and nice clean rooms with free internet/parking/breakfast. Staff was great. Room was clean and were recently upgraded. Too bad that the vanity was in the room instead of in the bathroom where it belonged but that is probably because of the history of the building. There is no pool but the gym is...

As many people have said, the best thing about the Silver Cloud is its location: UW (and Medical Center), University Village (shopping), Seattle Children's Medical Center and Husky Stadium (aka Alaska Airlines Field). In theory all are accessible on foot via the Burke-Gilman Trail, which runs right by the hotel. Similarly, light rail university station is right next to Husky...

I have just had a long (5+ weeks) at the Silver Cloud, and it was a very easy experience. They have washers and dryers for free, bring your own detergent, the breakfast is easy and filling, the parking is easy, and the people are helpful and friendly. My son had a surgery at the UW Med Center, and so easy...

Stayed here a year ago because of proximity to Seattle Children's hospital. Really enjoyed hospitality and kindness. Returned because of this but very disappointed in customer service of front desk staff. Had to wait over an hour for shuttle because they were so busy yet there were at least 3 vans at the hotel. Perhaps another driver? Then we couldn't...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I do apologize your check in was less than perfect. We always strive to accommodate our guests whenever possible. As for early check-ins, our housekeeping staff works extra hard to have plenty of various rooms ready for these guest requests. Unfortunately on sold out nights we can't always achieve this....

I highly recommend this hotel for great customer service. I accidentally booked for the wrong dates, but didn't realize until after I had been charged for a no show.

Besides friendly and nice rooms you a short walk to University Village that has fun places to eat and good shopping. We were there for the Windermere Cup rowing races. We could walk to the boat house and watch from the shade. The hotel also has umbrellas to lend.
