My wife and I stayed here one night in December when we visited Cleveland for a concert on the East side. We would have stayed downtown, but we did not read too many great reviews of the hotels there. Plus, the concert venue was closer to the University District than anything else, which is why we landed at Glidden House.
Some perks of the stay:
+Convenient location: we walked to Little Italy for dinner, found parking next to the hotel, and took a lovely stroll around the campus of Case Western
+The breakfast buffet had some delicious additions
+The hotel is well-decorated and well-maintained
+The shower in the suite was amazing; two modes--conventional and rainshower (from the ceiling)
Now for the negatives:
-High rates considering what you get for the price
-The restaurant next door is closed on Sundays!
-A "movie" was being filmed on the premises while we were staying there, and we were kept from entering our room due to the film crew's use of the lobby
-We witnessed a woman crash into a trash bin the night that we stayed here. She appeared intoxicated and disoriented, as she was driving with her passenger door open and slammed into the bin located between the hotel and the associated eatery (Sergio's).
-The suite was unremarkable. The television connection was horrible; only two bottles of water were contained in the refrigerator; and the noise level was slightly louder than I expected. Spacious, to be sure. But not worth the extra cost.
For being the only bed and breakfast in Cleveland, this was a gem. But that isn't saying much.
