"Perfect location for CWRU visits"
We have stayed at the Glidden House many times over the past few years. It is always a pleasure - never too noisy even with ongoing events, always ready to help with a problem, and the location is truly within walking distance of so many wonderful venues. Parking is a breeze. I will actually miss staying there once our daughter graduates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Nice Small Hotel"
Very nice small hotel in the midst of a wonderful area. Walk to excellent restaurants, through park areas, to the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Cleveland Museum of Art and numerous other venues. Hotel was quiet, parking was easy, staff was nice, breakfast and Wi-Fi included in cost.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Love Beautiful Historic Inns!"
Were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary and traveled from Central PA to visit the sites here. This hotel was a beautiful historic haven in a large busy city. Included was a wonderful buffet breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend this place to everyone and hope to return some day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Incredibly well located for all things cultural"
The hotel is a beautiful historic home, with rooms added on, and converted to a boutique hotel. The breakfast room and lounge areas are gorgeous and charming, and the walk outside to everything you could need to be near that is cultural (all museums, Art and Music Institute, Case Western University, Botanic Gardens, Severance Hall, and on and on) couldn't […] be easier or more lovely. There is no other place to stay that even comes close, convenience wise. The only negative is that you do give up some of the conveniences a chain would have (room service limited-- there was none, for instance, on Sunday, the only night I was there; also no minibar, fewer extras, blankets, etc. No in-hotel restaurant.) The bottom line is, though, that is it is a unique and beautiful hotel, in the heart of cultural and historic Cleveland, and I will stay here again when I visit (I will just pack a few snacks!)

"Historic Gidden House"
Beautiful sunroom for the outstanding complimentary breakfast. Pastries were so fresh and unusual variety.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near art museum"
Loved the location. Two blocks from the Cleveland art museum and six blocks from Little Italy. Nice comfy room with modern updates in bathroom and flat screen tvs. Very clean. Great breakfast with hot and cold entrees. Room not very soundproof. Floors very squeaky and thin walls. Ask for top floor room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Very nice hotel would definitely stay there a"

"Walking distance to restaurants/ Cleveland clinic"
Great place to stay if you have appt at Cleveland clinic. Panera, chipotle, ice cream great grocery store Starbucks lots of other options all within walking distanceGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel and grounds are beautiful. Breakfast in the parlor room the next morning was the highlight of the hotel stay. Very much enjoyed the ambiance. Everything was clean and comfortable. No street noise. The only non-positive (I won't go so far as to say negative) thing I would say is that the front desk clerk was polite, but not overly helpful. […] We weren't told where anything in the hotel was located, and had to ask about parking as well. The breakfast attendant did a good job of making sure everything was as it should be, but she was slightly gruff and seemed displeased at my request for extra sugar, and made a comment about my removal of sugar from another table.

"Beautiful and clean hotel"
We stayed for 2 nights to attend a concert at Jacob's Pavilion, which was a short and easy drive from the Glidden. The hotel is located in the beautiful University area with parks and a lot to do. The hotel was extremely clean and comfortable with a friendly efficient staff. The main lobby was impressive with all the old woodwork and kept in excellent […] condition. I can't emphasize clean enough! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location for family of a CWRU student."
The staff was very helpful, providing extra pillows upon request. The breakfast was nice and although the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed with the amount of people, being alumni/family weekend they were always courteous.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was amazing, and the location was great for walking to other cool destinations. We first has to switch rooms because our toilet was broken in our original room. We were re located to a room across the hall. It was still an amazing room so we were happy. So we spent the day sight seeing and shopping and eating. We arrived back to the hotel […] late and just wanted to relax and watch some tv. We turned on the TV and it was so fuzzy you could not even see the picture. We called the front desk and they sent someone up right away. The man had no idea what he was doing and then told us he was not able to fix the issue because he needed to get up to the roof and his co worker left with the keys for the day. So he had no roof acess. We were kind of upset about this issue because we just wanted to relax and watch some tv after a long day. The room was not cheap and we expected everything to be in working order and it was not. Other than the toilet and tv issue it was a great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was perfect for us. It was clean, beautiful, interesting history and comfortable. We had a suite and the room was the perfect size and layout. The beds were comfortable and the included breakfast was delicious. We would def stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful stately boutique hotel"
Attractive in great location walking distance from restaurants and Museums. Delicious breakfast buffetGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in interesting location"
Have stayed at the hotel twice now, a year apart. Once in the rear, new wing, and once in a room in the original (but highly refreshed :-) house. Both rooms were very nicely appointed and had comfortable beds. The A/C was less obtrusive in the original house, perhaps because that room was actually a two-room suite. Staff was uniformly nice, friendly […] and helpful. The first stay, a year ago, one out of three mornings a maid went down the hall banging on every door (regardless of do not disturb signs) apparently to wake people up. I left a lengthy comment card about that! The place was nice enough otherwise that we tried again, and thankfully there was no repeat of this nonsense. If you have time on your hands, there is a nice park with botanical gardens and a few museums. You're also in walking distance of Little Italy, and basically right next door to Case Western with all of the usual university campus activities. The only downside, and this might be just me, is that there is a curious vibe to the place. Can't put my finger on what it is. Both times I've stayed there have found it a little disorienting -- seemed to be just me though, my family didn't comment on it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Hotel Next to Park and Museums"
I had a great stay in this beautiful hotel located in a nice quiet area on the beautiful campus of Case Western University. There is a nice restaurant right beside the hotel. I felt safe walking a few blocks for my evening "constitutional" (after dark) to nearby Euclid Avenue. There are lots of restaurants there, too. Glidden House is a solid, well […] soundproofed building--I heard no neighbors and had no disturbances in the night. The wireless internet worked flawlessly and the 42" big screen TV was nice as well. Comfy bed. Nice elevator. Glidden House is a great place to stay when visiting a patient at Cleveland Clinic, as I did. Top marks for this hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very Quiet Hotel!!!"
We come to Cleveland a lot since my wife is a patient of The Cleveland Clinic. We first stayed at this hotel thinking oh no what have we gotten ourselves in to, but, to our surprise the hotel is a hidden gem that we LOVE staying at!! It's always quiet there & the staff is so professional ALL the time. The one stay we forgot an item in the closet & realized […] it when we got home in NY. Well, we called the hotel & when the cleaning staff manager returned our call saying she had them & would hold them until our next visit was really unheard of. We ALWAYS stay at The Glidden House when we are in Cleveland & always will, well as long as they have rooms open!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

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

"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

"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

"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

"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).

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
