This hotel is a perfect place to stay. Very Kid Friendly, Free parking which is almost unheard of this close to downtown Seattle. Breakfast was hot and plentiful. Pretty standard in variety, but better than most I've experienced. Rooms are very spacious. We had a 2 Queen bed room with a small sleeper sofa and still had plenty of room...

Nice surprise for a big northwest city like Seattle. Breakfast buffet is more than adequate, comfortable beds, clean room, good views free parking. This was a good value for what they offer. Good location. Strong shower head like I was in jacuzzi which they have with the pool downstairs. .

Great place to stay. Convenient to UW and Cancer Care medical facilities. Just a trolly ride to downtown Seattle. Everything you need. Good restaurants and Seattle Museum of History and Industry within walking distance.

First time to this Silver Cloud Inn, but this hotel group is always a favorite - they know how to do it right! Big room, plenty of space, fridge and microwave were convenient, and desk alcove and electric fireplace added some charm. Parking was free, huge bonus for downtown Seattle, and we could easily walk to delicious restaurants in South...

Exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff, a good free breakfast buffet, indoor pool, gym, and shuttle service make this hotel stand out. When we stay...

This place was comfortable, clean, safe and convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a little difficult to see the sign for the hotel, but directions to get to it were easy. The Sunday breakfast had hot eggs, sausage and waffles as well as an assortment of cold items, and the breakfast room has the best view I've...

Stayed here a good number of times, and never had any reason to complain. The rooms are clean and well sized, there is a really good complimentary breakfast while the location is convenient for most things, although being closer in to the city centre might be better for families. Nevertheless, there is a free shuttle in to the centre, and...
