Neat place to stay
Enjoyed our stay. We could walk to restaurants, and it is close to Cleveland Clinic and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We stayed on Labor Day so their small bar was closed. Unfortunately, their elevator was not working so we had to lug our suit cases up to the 3rd floor. Beautiful grounds. Unique place!

Had a wonderful evening there the other night staying, I wanted to stay there for a long time, the place is really elegant, in a 1920s and 1930s Way. The grounds and buildings are very attractive, my room was updated and was quite nice, the bathroom was great. The Breakfast that’s included in the room charge was absolutely fabulous, And the lady over seeing the room wonderful. A really great experience, there are not many places that have this sort of ambience today, most of them are new glass and granite and marble and very sterile, this place is extremely comfortable and elegant. Great location to

Freezing at Glidden House
Lovely except I couldn’t get warm enough. It was very cold in every location on the premise. I couldn’t get our room thermostat to stop poring in cold air no matter what temperature I set the thermostat at. It’s totally unnecessary to have the AC set so low.
