I had a largely positive experience at Glidden House during a two night stay in November. Glidden house is a a nice location in the University Circle area of Cleveland, which is a nice area in the middle of Case Western Reserve University. In addition to the university, Glidden House is near the Botanical Garden, Cleveland Art Museum, Symphony Hall,... More

Would I recommend this hotel? NO! Would I stay here again? NO! Where would I stay? I'd be at The Hotel Intercontinental next to the Cleveland Clinic. Now that's a great hotel. Robin Williams (the actor/comedian) stayed there when he had heart surgery. We cut our June 2009 stay short with the Glidden House beause of several disappointments and stayed... More

What a gem! The Glidden House was owned by an heir to the Glidden Paint Company fortune. The mansion has beautifully preserved hand-carved woodwork and intricate plaster ceilings, yet also has a modern design to it. The lobby bar is small and charming. The bartender was both friendly and helpful. Felt like he was an old friend. The room was... More

I called the Glidden House to book our rehearsal dinner a year prior to our date. The gentleman who books events like weddings/rehearsal dinners spent about 20 minutes degrading other fine dining establishments in Cleveland. He insinuated that places like the Ritz were "below" the Glidden House in the most insulting way. Sir, the Ritz beats out your price by... More

Stayed in a suite with my wife. Room standard as such is not bad although there is nowhere to hang any items in the bathroom (no hooks AT ALL) and no mirrors outside of bathroom (but TWO 42" LG TV's, one per person I guess). Found one bathrobe in the room, needed another. Pressed "Guest Services" on the phone. After... More

My hosts booked me at the Glidden House, and overall it's a great hotel. However, I did find it just a tad disappointing after perusing their website, which emphasizes the historic character and uniqueness. It almost sounds more like a big B&B from the name. They do serve a sumptuous and elegant breakfast, and much of the building is historic,... More

A top quality small hotel where you can park your car for free and walk one block to an art gallery. historical museum, botanical garden with 18,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse, and a natural history musem. James (consierge) was terriffic in supplying ideas. Behind the hotel is a pub (Broken Spider) with live music, and behind it is a French... More

We stayed two nights at the Glidden and were fortunate enough to be in a room in the original part of the house right above the front door which meant that the room was unusual -interestingly so- in shape. Bathroom was huge and well appointed with a glorious shower. Breakfast, in the original conservatory and dining room, offered every reasonable... More

I went to school at Case Western, so I was very excited to finally stay at the Glidden House. Unfortunately, the experience turned into a nightmare. They put us in a room next to a large white tent, and my immediate thought was that they had just had a wedding there the night before. I was wrong. The wedding was... More
