I previously entered a review of Glidden House and said how difficult it was to get a reservation. The day after I tried to get a reservation I was contacted by Glidden house and was taken care of and was able to stay there. They very promptly took care of my problem. I stayed at Glidden House and it was...

For visitors to Cleveland who want to be in its museum district, to quickly get to the waterfront or have a close by hotel when visiting friends in its eastern high end neighborhoods while avoiding the bowels of its infamous not-so-nice and often dangerous neighborhoods this may be ideal. There is a nice bar and comfortable, beautifully-decorated rooms served by...

We stayed here for one night while visiting Case Western Reserve University. It is literally across the street so it offers a fantastic location. A gentleman greeted us and welcomed us at the door and offered helpful information later when we were walking about the hotel. Parking is a challenge (and free), but hotel staff moved personal vehicles to make...

Out to Cleveland for a stop at the Cleveland Clinic. Everything was excellent here. The room was nice, the old Glidden house was very interesting. There are several nice places to eat within very close walking distance. We had a fantastic meal at L'Albatross. We didn't realize it but they had a very nice complementary breakfast at the hotel. Would...

We spent our anniversary here because the place we normally stay was booked. This was a great hotel, with a delicious breakfast and wonderful environment. Sat outside in a beautiful courtyard. Room was very nice as well. Loved that we could walk to the art museum and to dinner. I had no idea it was even here!

I booked the hotel online right after I read a few reviews, looked good, I didn't give it much thought. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised how cute and charming the hotel was when we arrived. One of the employees we ran into in the lobby very kindly introduced the history of the hotel to us, very interesting stories....

Interesting history and very friendly staff. Great place to have a wedding! This was the man that invented the Glidden house paint. It is a hotel and also you can have parties or weddings here. Very pretty!

We stayed at The Glidden House one night, a Monday while helping our daughter move from Texas to New York. I picked it based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. We had a "Traditional Room King Bed" on the 3rd floor. Very comfortable and the bathroom fixtures are Kohler, with a big bath. The room temperature was controlled via...
