“unique place to stay in Cleveland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We travel to Cleveland, Ohio often and always try to stay at the Glidden House. It is in a great location (University Circle at Western Reserve Univ.) and is a beautiful Inn with breakfast included in the room fee. The Glidden has upgraded their services over the years and has become even nicer. They now have a lovely bar area and breakfast has expanded. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed with free internet service in the room. The location can't be beat and the prices are reasonable, especially when you book through hotels.com or are an alumni of the university. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a restaurant next door that is very good. It is beautiful place for private affair. Very highly recommended!

Room Tip: In the winter, we enjoy first floor rooms as heat rises and the rooms can be a little warm upstairs.

We recommended The Glidden House to all of our out of town guests for our Daughter's Bat Mitzvah weekend. Everyone loved it! Very comfortable, helpful and relaxing! We held a brunch for 50 of Sunday morning and the service and food was truly terrific!

I was lucky to have a client visit in this part of Cleveland which was the original reason for booking a two night stay at the Glidden House. Now, I must admit, I look forward to future trips to Cleveland and staying here again, regardless of what part of Cleveland I must travel to. On the campus of Case Western University, the Glidden House architecture and surrounding area ooze culture, academia, and the finer parts of urban living. Staying here is a definite change from the ordinary. While my first floor room looks ordinary, it's the attention to detail that makes the difference. Service is first class; parking is free and onsite. A short walk to numerous dining options. The free breakfast at Glidden House is several levels above the less than mediocre chain hotel breakfasts. While nothing is made to order, the quality of the food is outstanding. Fresh baked pastries, creamy oatmeal, fresh fruit, breakfast meats, egg dishes, fresh squeezed OJ, etc. It's hard to hold back on the calories! Dining area options include a wood-paneled room or a lighter sunroom. Room cleanliness was stellar; bed was very comfortable; shower water temperature and pressure were good; climate control was comfortable. I definitely concur with the hotel's high rating in Trip Advisor.

This hotel is a lovely place to spend a few nights while in the area. I stayed here while looking for a house to buy and they were very helpful in telling me about the area. this place is near everything in university circle and is an attraction in its own right

Glidden House was a perfect place to stay while on business at Case Western. The staff is friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was really, really delicious.

My newlywed Husband and Myself would HIGHLY recommend Glidden House not only for a Wedding Reception/Ceremony, but also for Hotel accommodations. The rooms are visually appealing, and extremely clean. The staff is very friendly and will do anything to make your stay a perfect one. Leary and Kate, our event coordinators, could not have been more helpful in making our Wedding the most beautiful and perfect evening. I just can not say enough good words about the Glidden House.

We loved the Glidden House and would recommend it to anyone who would like to stay in the University Circle area. We walked to Severance Hall (home of the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra) and the Cleveland Art Museum. The Cleveland Botanical Garden is across the street. In addition, several excellent restaurants are within walking distance. Rooms are somewhat small, comfortable, and clean. Views from windows are park like. An excellent hot breakfast was included in the room cost. We also enjoyed a selection of newspapers in the morning. Parking in the rear of the building is free. Glidden House is a great value for a big city hotel.
