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. The complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent, and served in a charming room with dark wood paneling and a fireplace, opening out onto a sunroom with additional tables and seating. The location is...

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.

We were looking for a quiet get-away weekend and I liked the online review of this place. Boy, did I make the right choice. This place is gorgeous and the staff is very courteous. You are right in the middle of the CWRU campus and the Cleveland Cultural center activities are within walking distance. You can't beat this area of...

We stayed for a Sat, Sun night weekend. The bar in the common area was open on Saturday evening. Nice if your not going downtown and want to enjoy the House. Breakfast both mornings was everything you could want. I even tried some fresh cooked oat meal with brown sugar. Just like at grandma's. We looked around a bit and...

Small room, comfortably furnished, clean, with everything we needed for an overnight stay. We showed up on a snowy afternoon; the lobby and other public areas were so warm and welcoming in a 'fine country home' way that we were tempted to curl up with a book and enjoy the space. Artworks that line the walls are intriguing. The hotel...

I stayed here while on a business visit to Case Western Reserve University--so the location was unbeatable. Lovely University Circle location across the street from the Cleveland Art Museum, the Botanical Gardens, and the Natural History Museum. Very pleasant neighborhood. Fairly quiet hotel except that my room overlooked the parking lot where the dumpster was emptied fairly early in the...

I stayed at Glidden House for a long weekend for a CWRU event, and was very pleased. The hotel itself is an old mansion and when you walk in, there are big, stone fireplaces burning and hazy lighting that feels very cozy. The whole place has an elegant vibe. Rooms are very nice. Enjoy happy hour with the very friendly...

Great location, attentive stuffs, delicious breakfast with real China worth the cost. Free parking is plus. We will definitely stay here again. Room is smaller but has classic decor. Walking distance to many restaurants.

The bad: Breakfast eggs were overcooked/rubbery (and a little unusual in shape - they were clearly baked in mini-muffin tins); breakfast offerings were otherwise exactly what you'll find at a Hampton Inn breakfast buffet - nothing at all special - frankly I was disappointed, expecting anything at all to differentiate Glidden from any random chain. HBO showed on the in-room...

Quiet and nostalgic boutique hotel with rich impressive architecture. Room we had was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast/brunch is ok. Small lobby/bar. Convenient to the Botanical Gardens and Cleveland Museum of Art. Not far from downtown where things are more bustling in the evening hours. Management should update guest information about Cleveland area eateries and attractions. Binder with typed pages is...
