The best part, for us, was the location. We came to Cleveland primarily to see museums in the University Circle area. We were able to park (for free) at the hotel and walk to nearly everything. The art museum, the history museum, the botanical gardens, and the natural history museum, (and more) are literally all within a 5-minute walk. This,... More

My husband and I live in the area but decided to take the opportunity to try out this lovely hotel that we had read about over the years. Beautifully decorated for the holidays and restored, the common areas on the first floor were a delight. Our suite on the second floor was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable... More

This is the fourth time we have been to the Glidden House and its been a wonderful place. The room and bed has been comfortable and the staff was very helpful and nice. We have to visit Cleveland a couple of times a year and plan to keep staying at the Glidden House.

My husband and I spent our 43rd anniversary over three days in Cleveland and were very happy we had chosen Glidden House. It has the charm of an old stately home but modern updates and was beautifully decorated for the holidays. An expansive European style breakfast (hot and cold offerings) is included in the room charge and can be enjoyed... More

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 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.

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.
