A beautiful and historic place to stay in Cleveland. We stayed in a Mansion suite and were not disappointed. The breakfast in the dining and sunroom was substantial and varied. There is on site parking and it was a 5 minute drive to the Rock and Roll hall of Fame, Christmas House and the Lakeview cemetery (where J.D. Rockerfeller is... More

This was a small and we'll run hotel. It is located in a lovely part of the city, surrounded by green areas and nice buildings. The hotel itself was clean and the rooms were good. The staff were quiet and the whole surroundings of the hotel led to a relaxed environment. If you want to get away from the big... More

I had to stay in a hotel for over a week due to my husband's hospitalization at Cleveland Clinic and couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot. The place is charming, with an aura of calm about it. The staff was pleasant and very helpful, the rooms more than adequate and the buffet breakfast wonderful! Best scones I've eaten in... More

I spent two nights at this hotel. I could not get an Internet connection in my room the first night. I had to sit out in the lobby to work on my computer. They moved me to a different room the second night. I could at least get an Internet connection in my room but it was very slow. If... More

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... More

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..... More

Just wanted to share my reservation call. I called to make a reservation for a wedding we are going to attend. After I was told by a young man that we had a reservation for the evening and gave my credit card information I was cut off. I called back immediately and got a different person. I was told there...

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.
