We were in Cleveland to hear the Cleveland Orchestra and visit museums. We stayed st Glidden House for two nights and could not be happier with its location and the hotel itself. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to William at the bar who was fabulous! We dined next door at Trentina one evening and...

I requested a corner room on the 3rd floor and my wish was granted. The room had lots of natural light with its three windows. Since it's at the end of the hallway, it was perfectly quiet too. Comfortable bedding and clean modern bathroom with great water pressure! Just what I needed! The staff is always helpful! The breakfast is...

I have now stayed here several times, most recently in May, 2017. I love this hotel! The location, on the Case Western Reserve campus, near the botanical gardens, CMA, and MOCA, and an easy walk to lots of fun activities and good restaurants. I almost never see the day staff (panned by other reviewers), but after 3:00 the crew is...

The hotel is in a great location. I would have given it a 5 but the lady at the checkin was not very friendly or helpful. For example, we had to ask about parking she didn't ask do you have a car you need a parking pass for?

After reading previous reviews, it seems some of the guests stayed in a different place than we did. The employees that we had contact with were very nice and helpful. The room we stayed in was dark, which makes the room appear cleaner than it is. The room and parts of the home are outdated. When using term outdated, am...

This is a really nice small hotel on the Case Western University campus, near the botanical gardens and the art museum. With free wifi, very respectable rates, and a generous free English breakfast, you cant go wrong.....but the hot part of the breakfast was cold from the get go, and I had a very rude check-out experience at the front...

The Glidden House was a wonderful find on my recent visit to Cleveland. The home as build by the Grandson of the Glidden Paint company founder. Many of the original features are still there such as the G found on every other rafter in the dining room. The location of the Glidden House is perfect. You are in walking distance...

Left expensive coat in room closet, called two hours after leaving in the morning and zero help. Will not be back. Very disappointed with poor communication and extreme apathy. I see other reviewer's have posted same.

My wife, teenage son and I stayed her for three nights during Spring break. The hotel and rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were welcoming and helpful.

We stayed at Glidden House on a visit to family. It's ideally located adjacent to the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Botanical Gardens, in a renovated historic mansion. The room was comfortable and the staff friendly and informative. Breakfast the next morning was extensive and well-presented.
