Great Location
The staff at The Glidden House were very attentive, professional, accomodating. Location was excellent with the Botanical Gardens and museums within steps of the hotel on Case Western Reserve University grounds. Our destination was The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame which was an easy, short drive downtown.

4/10 Fair

I was very disappointed that I was not warned that a wedding and reception was scheduled the night of my arrival, resulting in ZERO parking spaces so that I could check in. On top of that, the band at the reception played until midnight. Definitely not a good scenario for a weary traveler.

8/10 Very Good

Our review good and bad the Glidden house hotel
Everything was very beautiful about the hotel . It being the Glidden family mansion was exquisite. The only complaints were. The king size bed felt for one of us was she kept on rolling downward to the middle of the bed, I felt I was mounded into a well slepped spot. There was no microwave, coffee pot was a nice addition. The 2nd floor had to go for ice machine and microwave. We were in 106 1st floor thank God. Above microwave area was Black Mold all over the Ceiling. That should be taken care of immediately. That’s a big downside. Overall was a beautiful place to stay except for what I mentioned. OH I was not happy I had to pay $10 plus Tax to park our car. The breakfast was very welcomed and the ladies setting it up were the nicest caring ladies. Excellent help, they probably aren’t paid enough, don’t loose them. They were very helpful. Thank you the Baskey Family.
