Silver Cloud Hotel Stadium Seattle puts guests steps from Safeco and CenturyLink fields – home turf for MLB’s Seattle Mariners, Seattle Sounders FC, and the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, and also major concerts and events venues. Some rooms even snag a view of the Safeco Field Jumbotron. Many west-facing rooms have stellar Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains views, as does the year-round, rooftop, heated pool deck. Comfortable and contemporary décor is elevated with upscale rustic, vintage, and mid-century modern touches. The hotel straddles several Seattle neighborhoods, with the many shops and restaurants of historic Pioneer Square, industrial-hip SoDo, and the ethnically-diverse International District within walking distance.
Silver Cloud Stadium Seattle – The Basics
- Location: At 1st Avenue South and South Royal Brougham Way, ideally-located for sporting events, concerts or other happenings in the stadium district.

Supervised children are welcome on the sundeck, and in the pool and hot tub. Carseats (all types) for the complimentary hotel shuttle can be requested in advance.
