posh, comfortable hotel near art museums and Case Western, convenient parking, good breakfastGenuine Expedia guest review
The Glidden House is a quality hotel, one with good service in a very interesting property. If you have reason be be at Case Western Reserve I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay in a mansion and walk to sites"
The ambience of the Glidden House was a treat. Proximity to the Cleveland Museum of Art and other cultural venues permitted us to leave the car parked and walk.Genuine Expedia guest review

This was a really neat property. The staff was super friendly. It is very convenient to travel to the Cleveland Clinic hospital.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clos to Case Western Reserve Univ/Law School"
Nice hotel with a fabulous breakfast included in the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the world! I even left my cosmetic bag and they mailed it to me. The breakfast was wonderful. Fresh fruit, eggs, pastries, yogurt....superb. We walked to the Botanic Garden and the art museum. Wonderful restuarant associated with the hotel, we ate there twice!!! Cute neighborhood restuarants with […] street musicians. Could not have asked for more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect University Circle location"
It was a one night stay and couldn't have been more idyllic for this area of Cleveland. Beautiful room, modern facilities, yet old-fashioned charm in the lobby and tea room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful area and very close to all activities"
Loved our stay. Great hotel very clean with a great breakfast and wonderful staff and the location was close to all the museums and little Italy. The location was in a very beautiful location. Will come back again for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stately hotel with beautiful furnishings"
The Glidden House is a stately boutique hotel in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood, close to walking to restaurants, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and right across the street from the Botanical Gardens. We stayed for a long weekend, and would not hesitate to stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Location in Downtown Cleveland"
If museums are your thing, staying at the Glidden House puts you within walking distance of the Natural History Museum, Art Museum, Botanical Gardens, and the Crawford Car & Plane Museum. Not to mention great eating in Little Italy. The rooms and hotel were very clean and comfortable with one of the best breakfasts I've had at any hotel. The staff was […] the friendliest I've run into. Very enjoyable stay - I'll definitely return for another stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was fine, except for a foul smell in the lobby and elevators, except for the frustrating lead-up to arrival. We kept trying, over the course of two days, to confirm our late arrival and to request a room with two beds. We had the local number for the hotel as well as an 800 number. All calls were routed to a "third party" call center. First […] they said they couldn't confirm anything - our names weren't in their system. They gave us a number that just returned to them. Then, they said the hotel was completely booked and we would not have a room. Then, they said the reservation would be cancelled at midnight even though payment was made in advance; we kept trying to explain that we were driving from 7-8 hrs away, our cell phones were draining from all the attempts to call. We were frantic to arrive before 12, not knowing if it was possible. We left messages in hotel voicemails that were never returned. So much unnecessary stress! Room was fine, desk staff were fine, breakfast was somewhat fresh bagels, croissants, nice fresh fruit, horrible institutional eggs and sausage. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room very clean and quiet. Great hot breakfast."
Location worked for us because we were going to the Cleveland Clinic. Hotel is in a woodsy area near all the museums. Hotel was comfortable and quiet. It was on the smaller scale with big amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and everything was very nice. The breakfast was alo very good. We would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful historical home made into a hotel"
My daughter and I go to the Cleveland Clinic yearly for her check up. This was the first year we did not stay at the Guest House or the Ronald McDonald House. This was a gorgeous hotel down the road from the Clinic. We were greeted by a very friendly gentlemen at the check in desk that told us a little bit about the area. I only wish we would have had […] more time to see the nearby Botanical Gardens, etc. This hotel is gorgeous. While it is a historical home the room we stayed in was updated and beautiful. Wonderful rain shower, very relaxing after a day of travel. We will stay here from now on when we travel to Cleveland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the sights we wanted to visit"
Excellent; wonderful breakfast, friendly staff, clean comfortable and safeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy inn near museums and good restaurants"
The Glidden exceeded our expectations, Though reasonably priced, it had well-appointed rooms and a great little bar. The breakfast was served in a lovely paneled room. The inn is walking distance to the botanical garden and art museum -- both definitely worth a visit. A Frank Gehry building is right across the street. A beautiful part of Cleveland.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Historic Stay"
Glidden House is more beautiful than the pictures! I loved the dining area and lobby especially. And the room was perfect and very comfortable. I didn't know they had a bar inside the hotel but it was affordable and had a wonderful wine and beer selection. They can even make most other drinks! The staff was incredibly friendly as well. This hotel was […] spotless and the location puts you pretty much on Case Western's campus, which is an unbelievably gorgeous school. I can't wait to stay here again next time we visit Cleveland!

"Great place to stay in Cleveland"
My husband is a patient at Cleveland Clinic. This hotel provided us a great respite for the night after a long drive and difficult day in therapy. The Guest House at Cleveland Clinic will be torn down soon so I know other patients will be looking for a nice place to stay. This is it.Genuine Expedia guest review
I happen to stay at the Glidden House for a Cleveland Clinic appointment the following morning. I will definately stay again when in Cleveland. The Front Desk Person was very helpful and friendly as well as the Concierge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel close to University Circle"
A touch of old country within the city limits. Beautifully decorated hotel and surroundings. Friendly and attentive staff. Delicious breakfast buffet which offered more than just cereal and pastries. Comfortable bed with the softest towels ever had.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful place. Beatiful neighborhood."
Arrived later than planned but no problem. Great breakfast, good quality. Would gladly stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near Botanical Garden in beautiful neighborhood"
Did not realize it was on college campus so we thought we were lost. We called to check location with clerk at Glidden House and found we were about a block away! Lovely place, wish we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was outstanding!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel, except for the rooms"
We've stayed at the Glidden House three times this past year. We used to stay downtown but have migrated to the Glidden House for its rates and free parking. The hotel is historic and stunningly beautiful, well maintained. It is located in a quiet, almost residential neighborhood. Also a plus. The breakfast buffet is fantastic, one of my husband's most […] favorite in all of "hoteldom". The staff are adequate but don't really go so far as friendly. That's okay. My only complaint is the cleanliness of the rooms. This past stay I would rate our room at "filthy". Some issue's found in the bathroom are too disgusting to even detail, as in brown matter found on the floor and tub side. The wood floor foyer had dried dribble spots everywhere. The marble countertop was nasty. Carpet is old. And the TV remote? Don't even go there... The room made my skin crawl - not a good feeling. Each stay here has been a similar situation. We have informed the front desk, the manager, filled out the comment card, and yet it hasn't changed. Why did we come back? In hopes it would be better. I want to love this hotel. But sadly we're done staying here. This past room was the worst yet. What is tragic is that the rooms are not very large and could be easily kept clean. (A simple wet-jet swiffer would keep the foyer "spotless"). If it wasn't for the dirty rooms this would be a five star hotel. Stay here for the amenities, just bring Lysol spray, Clorox wipes, and flip flops... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If I could have given the Glidden house higher than a five, I would have. We were in University Circle for orientation weekend. My daughter was staying in the dorms just five minutes away. The staff was so helpful and friendly, the neighborhood is beautiful, and the bed comfy. I will be staying here again (many times over the next four years I thin […] k). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was lovely and in a perfect location. We enjoyed being able to walk the beautiful surrounding area. Only a block from the Art Museum and Botanical Gardens. And a short walk to Little Italy where we enjoyed a fantastic dinner. If you are looking for a romantic weekend getaway I would highly recommend the Glidden House.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel, great location"
The hotel is in a beautiful mansion, preserved and decorated. Breakfast is great, all fresh and delicious. Staff is friendly, great location. Rooms are big enough, beds are comfortable. They take care of the environment and you have the choice of having your towels and linens change as often as you want or not as often to save water. I don't know how […] thy do it but hosts are quiet and you can actually enjoy a very peaceful time without loud voices and noise, which I can seldom find in other hotels Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location - Terrible Bed"
We booked a night here because it was across the street from the Cleveland Art Museum, a treasure. Hotel was overall OK but the bed was horrible and the pillows were like rocks. Would give them a second chance, though, because of the location, down the street from Little Italy and in the heart of the museum district.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely get-away in the middle of the city"
Both of us enjoyed it very much and recommend it to others who want to stay in the city. Staff were very helpful; room was lovely; breakfast exceeded our expectations. We would return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A real treat!"
A beautiful guest house in the most beautiful neighborhood of Cleveland. We spent one night, but would love to spend more!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near Botanical Garden, close to CWRU"
I had very pleasant expiriance. I liked coffee before six AM ready at the bar and elegantly served buffet style breakfast. Food was fresh and tasty, and fruit salad was outstanding.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice room, a little on the small side. Only real negative is no onsite dining. Breakfast buffet was good. Very quiet for city hotel. Not a place for people with children or for those who want a lot of amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"fine for a night or two"
we were in the original house. everything has been modernized which is a plus. however, in short i would say that the rom has too much furniture where the bathroom does not have enough. there is no where to put a bathroom bag . no counter space and only one hook on the back of the door. also, the shower has two shower heads and both are like a rain […] shower. also, we booked a king size bed and our room had only a queen. not sure why and since our flight arrived terribly late and it was midnight by the time we arrived at the hotel, we were just happy to get to sleep without asking questions.

"beautiful facility with awesome access to fun"
My mom and I stayed at Glidden House for a mother's day overnight. We were totally impressed by the friendly staff, the grounds and the building which is gorgeous. The Cleveland Museum of Art is a couple hundred yards away and is stunning - feels like a major city museum. They are wrapping up a multimillion dollar addition that is fantastic and the […] collection is diverse and wonderful. We walked to Little Italy and had a great meal. Could have walked to Botanical Gardens as well but didn't. Hoping to go back and repeat the weekend next year! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

very nice, close to hospitals and all points downtown. Nestled in Case Western Univ. Clean, great buffet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Made us feel like VIP!"
From the moment we walked in the door we were mesmerized by the beauty of the hotel, impressed by the professional, friendly staff and vowed to return again and again! The rooms were very clean, but they didn't feel like hotel rooms, they felt like a beautiful bedroom in a classy home. We lacked for nothing. The complementary breakfast was superb, the […] choices not run of the mill at all. Served on real plates with real dinnerware. Very elegant. The scenery from the breakfast room was pure nature. We went there to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. It was an experience I would recommend to anyone traveling to the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a little hiccup well solved"
I always stay at the Glidden House when in Cleveland. Although there are less pricy alternatives all over the place, I make staying here part of my treat whenever I visit. This time I was given a room (200) that when I checked the bathroom the toilet set had not been cleaned (it was in fact really disgusting) so I literally ran out of there and went […] to the front desk. I was given a new room, all clean and lovely in absolutely no time. It was just strange that someone did not check the cleanliness of the room before assigning it. Also, their AC system could be a little less noisy and everything would be perfect! I'll still stay at the Glidden every time I'm in Cleveland, but have them double check the room before my arrival... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Glideen House was a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. When visiting Cleveland in the future, I will definitely stay again. The staff was helpful. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful yet quaint"
Beautiful historic bed and breakfast type lodging. Close to many area attractions.Very comfy and clean. The price I recieved with the discount I found through hotels.com was the deciding factor for me to stay at the Gliddne House. Otherwise I think it is a little too much - you are paying for the closeness to the area attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice place to stay in East Cleveland"
Everything is so nice, but the hotel parking space is very limited. If you want to go out after 5pm, you might lose your parking spot for that night...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful for visiting the museums in Cleveland"
The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and comfortable. The location was ideal. We were in Cleveland for a weekend getaway to see the museums and to shop and eat. It was a wonderful hotel and I would definitely stay there again. The only slightly uncomfortable thing was the temp of the room was a bit finicky. But that did not diminish […] our enjoyment of our stay. GREAT breakfast buffet! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice Boutique type Hotel. Easy access to good restaurant and MuseumsGenuine Expedia guest review
Perfect location for Case Western, Little Italy, and museums. Very helpful staff. We were exhausted when we arrived and were even able to check in an hour early. The only drawback is that the curtains in the room are purely decorative (i.e. side panels only) and the blinds did not block the (very) bright street lights, so we were unable to sleep soundly. […] A dark blanket or eye shades will be on our list if we go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice place to stay. Perfect location to everything! Friendly staff. We will be staying here again in the future!!!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Overall good experience- would stay here again"
We splurged on a mansion suite, which, while it did have a separate seating area as well as table/chairs and small kitchen area, the entire room itself was much smaller than I had envisioned from the pictures on the hotel website. The bathroom was modern yet lacked simple necessities- there was only one small towel rack on the shower door. We had nowhere […] to hang our towels, even though there was the usual card stating to save resources and hang towels up if possible. The shower door was on the opposite side from the shower handle, so it was impossible not to be blasted with cold water as we turned on the shower each morning. Small inconveniences overall, but they were somewhat surprising given the room type we were in. Next time, i would just stay in a regular queen room. As for the rest of our stay, it was superb. The staff was courteous, professional, and always helpful. The hotel itself is in great condition and very well maintained. My husband and I looked forward to the complimentary breakfast every day- everything was delicious. I chose hands-down to eat at the Glidden House instead of my conference breafast every morning. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends but with the caviat that the mansion suites might not be worth the extra money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is lovely, the staff is great, but the walls are a bit thin. I could clearly hear conversations of the people next door - but everything else was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
