My son and I stayed here for two nights while he played in a baseball tournament. Pros: lovely view, good location on the waterfront near some pretty parks. Cons: noisy room although we were told that we would not hear any train noise in the high-priced "Premier Waterview Suite," unfriendly, unhelpful and incompetent service, worn furnishings.

We have enjoyed the beauty of the morning sunshine coming in from the east in our room. The room has to face the bay view and on the right side (facing East) in order to be able to view the sun coming up to enjoy such wonders in the horizon after the first night stay. Hope you can enjoy the...

This is an interesting hotel because it is built out onto the water. Therefore all rooms have a view of the bay. The staff was very nice. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. We opted for the larger room with a living room and thought it was worth the extra money. There are some interesting areas within walking distance....

If you like breathtaking views of the waterfront and mountains while staying literally RIGHT on the water, I would highly recommend this hotel. It is located within walking distance to great restaurants, a beautiful walking/running path and fun activities. Everything about the hotel was comfortable, and the staff is polite and so accommodating... not to mention a delicious breakfast included...

Hotel pays attention to details. Nice comfy chair in large room overlooking the ocean. Comfortable bed, extra blanket, & Seattle's best coffee in the room. I liked the little breakfast potato egg quiche wrapped in parchment at the continental breakfast. The only thing I would add is my bill under the door in the morning: express checkout (or auto,atically to...

While traveling or just getting out for fun and relaxation Silver Cloud is always my first choice for hotel accommodations. Guest services are five star, rooms are impeccable, breakfast is sufficient and delicious, and the views are amazing.

Our room was roomy, bright, quiet, had a wonderful view and a life-saving Jacuzzi. Everything was immaculate and we never felt the need to ask for anything. Unlike other hotels where one felt they had to adjust to the cleaning crews schedule, the crew here seemed to be aware of your movements and our paths never crossed.

Built right over the water, all rooms including the lobby have a fantastic view. Breakfast is included in the price and quite a variety of food is available (in addition to complimentary apples being in the lobby at any time). Since we visited in February, we paid extra for a room with a fireplace--definitely worth it! The one negative is...

Best location in Tacoma, located on waterfront, easy parking Just minutes from anywhere. Great place for a stroll at night or early morning jog. Each room has a water view, crack the window to listen to the marine sounds for a great background as you nod off

I chose to stay here during a business trip because of the waterfront setting and the close proximity to seafood restaurants along the waterfront. When I first arrived from the airport, I noticed that the property needed some updating, particularly in the entry area as you walk in. The entry and front desk areas were not very impressive. However, when...
