I stayed here 5 years ago and enjoyed my stay. Was in town for a family wedding and decided to stay here again. Lovely stay in the hotel once again, and with things opening back up since the pandemic, we were pleased to see the breakfast buffet was open. Pros: Hotel was able to accomodate an early check-in, no problem. Also, enjoyed a nice lunch across the street at Duke's! Nice views of the lake from the 3rd floor where the breakfast buffet is served. Con's: Not the hotel's fault, but there was a considerable amount of construction in and around the area, which made for a lot of detours with Uber rides. Friday morning I was awoken by construction at 6am from the backside of hotel. Also, the hotel has since done away with their free shuttle service due to pandemic cuts. Understandable. Would still recommend and would stay here again. Maybe worth checking first about possible road construction and detours?

We stayed a couple of nights in an executive king room facing the waterfront. The room was large with a separate living room area. There are two large flat-screen TVs in the room. There is a microwave, refrigerator, and small sink near the refrigerator. In addition, there are two bathroom sinks -- one inside the bathroom and one just outside the bathroom. Parking is in a secure, gated garage that requires a key card to access. Google directed us to the side of the hotel on Eastlake Avenue E but the hotel lobby entrance and garage entrance are on Fairview Avenue N. Because of COVID, breakfast was limited to a pre-bagged breakfast that contained yogurt and orange juice with either a pastry & hard-boiled egg or a frozen breakfast sandwich. The lobby and public areas were clean and very pleasant. There is free laundry available and laundry supplies for purchase in the lobby. There is free wifi and strong air conditioning. The only very minor suggestion I had was a need for another light in the bedroom near the TV where it was difficult to see when accessing luggage, etc.

Kasey and Mathew went above and beyond to make sure my stay was beyond excellent. From check in to check out, everything was seemless. Rooms were super clean, location was great, and customer service was beyond wonderful. Thank you!!!

My husband and I came over from Spokane Washington for a little getaway. What a fantastic surprise this hotel was. We were greeted by Tyler who who was more than willing to take his time to give us a rundown of great things to do in the area. Very clean rooms, very friendly staff. Our room had a great view overlooking the water. Very Covid compliant. Would not hesitate to book here again. Thank you

We had just one night to spend in Seattle, and I chose the Silver Cloud because of the beautiful view. It was perfect. The bed was really comfortable, the staff was super friendly, and we had a great dinner across the street at Duke’s. The only disappointment was breakfast, which was an assortment of sugary stuff in a bag. A breakfast sandwich would have been better. But I appreciate the effort, and it is completely forgivable in light of Covid restrictions. We were just grateful for the chance to go somewhere for a night!
