We recently had the pleasure of spending a couple of nights at The Glidden House. It is truly a gem with helpful and pleasant hosts. It is really well located and a short walk to the museums and botanical garden. The breakfast is to die for. We rate this hotel as a five star.

We have stayed here twice, one time two years ago and recently. The facility is convenient to many Cleveland institutions, such as Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. The building was constructed in the early 20th Century as a residence for the Glidden family of the paint industry. The facility has been expanded...

This historic home is located right next to the museum district. The art museum, natural history museum , and botanical gardens are short walking distance. The breakfast is very nice. I want to give a special thanks to Leslie who filled us in on the history of the building. WiFi excellent. Parking good. A lovely restaurant 50 yards away.

Everything was so perfect! Not a great place for kids yet the staff were so accommodating and hospitable to our whole family on our Lego-fest vacation! I hope my boys remember the elegance of The Glidden House all their lives. I know I will!

Service was impeccable. The room immaculate. Large bathroom with tub and shower. Large flat screen t.v. with a large assortment of free premium channels. Parking that was free of hotel charges (incredibly high in Cleveland) and constant tipping. Delicious breakfast was part of the package. My only complaint was that their WiFi could not accommodate streaming from my Apple T.V.

This hotel is classy with a boutique feel which my wife and I prefer. Its also a historical site, but with nice accommodations. It was our one year anniversary and we had a great time. Very comfortable room and we received complimentary drinks when we arrived. The breakfast buffet was also an added bonus the next morning.

Having stayed at boutique hotels in the past, I was very excited about my stay at the Glidden House in November. Sadly, it didn't live up to my expectations. Parking is free at the hotel however the small parking lot is shared with the restaurant next door so if you come back in the evening, good luck finding a place...

Far better than the droll chains at half the price. Nicely appointed rooms, large flat screen TV, firm bed, clean room, and one of the best breakfast buffets in the Cleveland area served in a stately atmosphere.

The hotel claims to have wheelchair accessible room: this is very misleading. The bathroom can accommodate a wheelchair -- once you're in it. The challenge is getting into the room and the bathroom. The bathroom was made “accessible” by expanding into the bedroom space. As a consequence the bedroom space is much smaller than in a standard room. It was...
