This renovated mansion with additional hotel-style rooms is now a boutique hotel conveniently located in the heart of University Circle. Across from Case Western University School of Law and in view of the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, the hotel is located in walking distance to the museums, parks. University Hospital, and Little Italy. My wife selected the Glidden House for an... More

My husband and I stayed here for the second time to celebrate our anniversary. This home was built in 1910, and has an "old home" feel, but has been updated with all the usual amenities. We enjoy the free parking (and free valet service); location, which is within walking distance to "Little Italy", the Cleveland Botanical Garden, and Art Museum,... More

We chose Glidden House for our stay over the Thanksgiving week because it was a good location for all our family and friend visits all over the east side. We paid $152/night, very reasonable for a city hotel. We were in the new wing on the alley side. Parking is free. Common rooms were elegantly decorated for the holidays. There... More

Accompanying my wife on a recent business trip yielded a stay at the Historic Glidden House-a former mansion in the University Circle area. Beautiful interior woodwork is always a welcome change from the cookie cutter chain hotels. A cozy fireplace plus a decorated Christmas tree added to the ambience. Friendly staff and a comfortable room plus breakfast is included in... More

Just your standard motel room. Rooms need a refurbishing. Disappointing breakfast buffet. Eggs were inedible. Staybridge Suites offer a much better breakfast until 10:30 am. Breakfast here on weekdays is only until 9:00 am. As mentioned in another review maids were knocking on our door three hours before checkout time. Convenient to museums.

October 10 and 11, 2014 - We stayed at the Glidden House Inn a couple of years ago. It was an excellent stay then and an excellent stay this time. It is hard to describe the calming feeling you have upon walking through the front door. The dark hardwood floors, the exquisite rugs, and the soft music all contribute to... More

It's taken me 15 minutes to log on to write this review because the wifi in this hotel is clearly overloaded. We have not been able to use it much since we checked in for our 3 night stay.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Glidden House Inn. We were visiting the nearby art museum so found the location very handy. Free parking, wi-fi and breakfast were all appreciated. Having a ground floor room facing the car park meant we had to keep the blinds closed at all times. The room was also right next to the... More

This such a beautiful small hotel, walking distance from so many attractions. It's a shame that some of the employees were so cold. Not unfriendly, just cold. The front desk guy was all business, leaving us on our own to wander around to find our room. The servers at breakfast had pretty much the same attitude. Bartender on Saturday night... More
