Due to bad weather, I did not arrive to check in until almost 9 pm. Staff was there to great me, fires in the fireplaces. Great customer service, free wifi, very nice room. Breakfast was very nice as well, everything was fresh and well cooked. Staff are helpful and friendly. Wish I had more time to enjoy this lovely hotel!

It's unusual to find a lovely, non-chain hotel right on a college campus [Case Western]. Makes the college visit experience that much better. The room was a bit small for a family of four, but the place made up in charm what it lacked in space -- especially considering the reasonable price. Breakfast was very good, and it's great to...

It's great to be right on the Case campus. The room was comfortable and pretty quiet, except for the TV bleeding through the adjoining door to the next room. HBO was a blank spot on the TV channels. The hallway outside of our door smelled strongly like old garbage. The breakfast was very good. I imagine we will be back... More

In the middle of Case Western, Art Museums and botanical gardens, a very few blocks each way. Pretty building. When we had to cancel at the last minute, they let me change my reservation with no charge even though it was past the allowable cancellation time. Bed fine, breakfast fine, front desk nice. Only minus was soundproofing between rooms could... More

We recently spent 2 evenings in a suite in this beautifully restored historic mansion. The suite was nice, we loved the fireplace! The small bathroom was a bit challenging to navigate as was the bi-fold closet door, which kept slipping off the track. The service, though polite, lacked the enthusiasm and attentiveness I have to come to expect from a... More

The hotel has redone the guest rooms to make your stay pleasant. Breakfast is included with the room which consists of fresh prepared hot food, cerals and pastries. There is a European type break meats and cheeses. Only china and silverware is used for serving.

I stayed in the Glidden House for two days in February, 2015 because I was doing work at the Cleveland Museum of Art (amazing place). The hotel was literally two minutes by foot from the museum and there were good restaurants within walking distance. The hotel was nice (clean) and the people extremely friendly. But breakfast was AMAZING. The eggs... More

There is everything to like about the Glidden House but the loud, off and on, high pitched sound coming from the mechanical closet in our room kept me up both nights of our weekend getaway. If not that for that unfortunate issue, the stay would have been excellent. Great location, comfortable room, delicious breakfast. But I am tired...

Cleveland's University Circle area is home to some great cultural attractions, and the Glidden House Inn is perfectly located to make it easy to visit them. The staff is terrific: friendly accommodating, courteous. Our room in the newer section was spotless and quiet. The complimentary breakfast is really attractively laid out in buffet style. A welcome touch was the fire... More
