The Glidden House Inn near Case Western Reserve on Ford street is a lovely, quiet repute in an original 1910 'town house' of the Glidden paint folks! Now of course owned by an investment conglomerate. The front entrance is picture-worthy as are the moldings and clings in the early 20th C parts of the inn. A high point is a...

Glidden House was 1910 rich American's version of French Chateau. Lots of charm when you enter. Friendly staff. Great location to walk to Severance Hall for Cleveland Orchestra concert, one of U.S.'s greatest art museums, and assorted other museums with everything from old cars to modern art. Also near Cleveland Clinic and is on campus of Case Western Reserve University.....

The hotel is lovely, clean, and comfortable. The walls are quite thin though and can hear conversations from other rooms. The AC/heat unit is also very noise and Wifi is horrendously slow. The location is great though and close to a lot of the attractions.

Good: nice big desk for working with ok lighting; decent buffet breakfast. Poor: rooms are heated/cooled with a very noisy Amana unit (windows are sealed shut); wi-fi is miserably slow; parking is tight and can be scanty; coffee in the room has only 1 caf & 1 de-caf pod.

The Glidden House, former mansion of the Glidden (paint) family, offers a quaint quiet unique vacation experience, Location is great since its within walking distance of the museum, the botanical gardens, the university, the clinic and mass transit system. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff is very helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

It's always a pleasant experience staying at Glidden House - comfortable room, friendly staff and great breakfast.

If your trip involves the Cleveland Clinic, University Circle or Case Western Reserve UNiversity, the Glidden House is a cool alternative to your run-of-the-mill chain hotels. Once the home of the heirs to the Glidden Paint & Varnish Company, the hotel still maintains the feel of staying in a early 1900's mansion. It's worth it just for eating breakfast in...
