“Super charming. Super convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

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 to our stay. The buffet breakfast was excellent -- much better than average.
We arrived on a Sunday, when most Cleveland restaurants are closed. But the registration clerk helped us find a great restaurant in Little Italy, which is very close. Throughout our stays, the staff has always been most helpful.
It's a great value.
Although we stayed for medical trips, Glidden House is clearly a fabulous place to stay for a romantic getaway.

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 the kids were able to romp on the large nearby greens during afternoon picnics. The Glidden House staff were attentive and courteous, and made the entire event a tremendous success. I highly recommend that anyone visiting the Cleveland area stay at Glidden House. The location, staff, and charm of the Inn are well worth it!

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 had a light over the entry mirror or even a mirror/light by the TV. There was room for that to be accommodated. The staff was great and the breakfast was nice.Loved the shower when we discovered how it worked.

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 was included in the room cost. Parking was tight -- small spaces and not quite enough to go around if a function was being held at the hotel.

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).
