My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at the Glidden House and were pleasantly surprised - the room was spacious and bed was most comfortable. The location was good, parking as available and there was a lovely restaurant just next door. While I can't say that the staff were particularly friendly, they did honor requests (a cup of hot...

While I was in Cleveland for business, my stay at Glidden House was a great pleasure. The hotel is ideally located for a lovely morning walk before work, the room was absolutely lovely and I slept deeply and well in my comfortable surroundings. It's a great building and wonderful hotel. (Do take care when arriving late - parking was a... More

We chose to stay here because we needed to be close to the Cleveland Clinic. It is right next store. But, it is also next store to the Cleveland Art Museum, Museum of Natural History, Case Western Reserve, Severance Hall (home of the Cleveland Orchestra), etc. But the charm exceeds the convenience. The restored common rooms gave a luxurious feel... More

My family met at Glidden House for our second recurring reunion last week. There were approximately 60 of us and Glidden House was wonderful in handling all the details--from cocktails, to rooms, to meals, etc. The setting, nestled among Cleveland's beautiful University Circle, was ideal. Smaller groups were able to visit the museums and botanical garden during the day and... More

Gracious service. Comfortable accommodations. Lovely grounds. Within walking distance of the Cleveland Museum, Botanical Garden, and a number of restaurants and bars. Perfect spot for a family reunion or wedding. We will definitely be back.

We were drawn in by the reviews we saw and assumed it was a suite as shown but when we arrived our suite was tiny. It was very nice but there was no vanity so my husband had to wait until I was all done before he could use the bathroom. It would have been so much better if they... More

The Glidden House is located nearby: Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic. I totally recommend it. Safe area, friendly and professional staff. The little bar inside of the place was intimate and convenient (Good Happy Hour)!! We had a excellent time!! Looking forward to stay again!!

Glidden House is conveniently located on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. The rooms are small, but comfortable, but I didn't find the bed that good and I can't say why. It should have been comfortable with its down mattress pad, but it wasn't and I didn't sleep well. The included breakfast was great and plentiful. Wireless internet access... More

We just loved it here. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The location was perfect--we walked to all the museums, campus, restaurants and neighborhoods. We will be back next year (or sooner).

Dear Alancccrx, Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry to hear that you had challenges during your check in process. We do our best to accommodate early check in requests-unfortunately we are unable to honor every such request.
