Though it's technically near Case Western Reserve, this hotel is essentially in the middle of campus, as it is surrounded by classroom buildings. Students even cut through the parking lot on their way to and from classes. Some may find this annoying, but I liked the vibrancy of the area. I went for an early-morning run, and many people were...

What a lovely affordable place to stay while visiting University Circle. Easy walk to Mitchell's ice cream and Little Italy. Plenty of other restaurants and sand which shops. We felt very safe walking to Little Italy and back after dark. The hotel staff was very friendly and attentive. Perez at the front desk was helpful and Billy is a charismatic... More

I traveled here with my sister during the summer. (I also stayed here once in 2008.) This property is anchored by a lovely mansion built in the early 1900s. (The rooms were added on to the back of it.) The rooms are very nice and comfortable. Breakfast is included and is served in the mansion dining room, which is very... More

I didn't want to pay $30/day to park downtown and so came across this place. Wow! What a find! The location on Case Western's lovely campus is perfect. The hotel is very elegant and clean and we were happy with our room. All the staff we encountered were so warm and friendly. The free breakfast was comprehensive and we were... More

I had a lovely visit recently at the Glidden House. The facility is just beautiful and the staff are quite friendly. The only complaint, and it is a big one, is there is virtually no insulation between the rooms. I was up much of the night listening to the television of the room next-door and hearing the man snore. They... More

We were probably the only people in the hotel that was not attending the on-site wedding. During the day and evening of this wedding, we had little access to anything outside of our room. We went off-site for a drink and found a coffee shop to read. In the evening the music and DJ were very loud. Fortunately it stopped... More

We pre-booked for two nights in Cleveland, and are so glad we found Glidden House on line. It is a glorious mansion turned into a wonderful guest house. The three story building has class and comfort, every where you look. It is like the usual hotel room, only on steroids of class. There is an in-house bar with friendly bar... More

Had high expectations and there are some improvements that can be made. However, you can't beat the location when dropping students off at Case Western. Oddly enough there seemed to be many families with younger children which made our stay a little on the noisy side. Breakfast was ok.
