We spent 5 nights at the Silver Cloud - Lake Union Seattle. The front desk people could not have been nicer or more helpful. When you entered the lobby they would look up and smile and ask if they could help you...very refreshing. The shuttle would take you to Pikes Market, Pioneer Square or the Space Needle. We used it...

I had a lovely time. It was quiet, everything was clean and the staff was friendly! The breakfast is standard but substantial! I only warn against using the aveda amenities they provide. Though I read the ingredient list to make sure I wasn't allergic to anything, I still broke out in a full body rash! It is very uncomfortable but...

We found the location works well. The shuttle was great to get around the city. Parking was free as well as a good hot breakfast. Business Center computers were easy to use to print boarding passes. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The fireplace was another unique feature that made this hotel charming.

Very nice location by Union Lake with great views from our 7th floor room. Every thing about the hotel exceeded our expectations - easy secure parking, great free shuttle service, excellent free reception on Tuesday evening, walking distance away from good eating places and very friendly staff.

The hotel is nice enough and the staff are always smiling, but the key system is totally broken. Every day I have been locked out of my room and had to return to reception to get the key re-cut. I've tried storing the key card in a variety of different places, but it never works. The lifts here are very...
