This was a special weekend for my wife and I and our stay at the Glidden House was our base camp. I have stayed at many "Boutique" Hotels, this is designation has resulted in a series of unfulfilled expectations, the Glidden House is just the opposite. The location is excellent for just about anything you want to do on the... More

My husband and I drove down to Cleveland from Toronto to see Guided By Voices perform at Grog Shop. We've been to Cleveland twice before, but always stayed downtown near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We are so glad we decided to stay at Glidden House this time around. It's right on the university grounds across from the... More

Stayed here during large convention and found the mansion suite style room spacious and the service delightful. The price was very affordable and the rooms were clean, recently redone bathroom, and fridge/microwave. Found it easily accessible to downtown cleveland and plenty of place to walk around near the university.

We absolutely loved our stay at the historic Glidden House. The staff shared a lot of the hotel's history with us from when the house was built in 1909 by Francis K. Glidden, the son of the founder and president of Glidden Paint Co. through now. Loved walking around the historic area, including the botanical garden. Carriage House is now... More

The Glidden Hotel is a favorite of mine. This historic boutique hotel is reasonably priced, but not cheap, and the location is central to many attractions and restaurants. The rooms have always been comfortable, and the service is commendable. The hotel features a generous free breakfast spread with hot and cold options, and the bar just off the lobby is... More

We stayed here while touring Case Western Reserve University. The hotel is right on their campus, so the location was perfect! The neighborhood is lovely. It is a very short walk away from the art museum. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is historic, so it has a lot of charm. But the rooms have been updated... More

This was my second stay at the historic Glidden House. It is all that it appears, and pretty much everything you could ask for in a boutique hotel - style, location, charm etc all without an exorbitant cost. The grounds and the property generally, is very well kept, and the rooms although "smallish" were very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms... More

Beautiful hotel in a great area. Booked on a whim and glad we did. Room was beautiful, clean and comfy bed. Loved the history of the house. Great breakfast. Easy walk to nice restaurants. Same price as chain hotels. No pool but also no kids running down halls. Will definitely stay here again. Close to everything and easy drive to... More

Great location in the heart of university circle. Walking distance to Case Western, University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic. There are also many other sites within walking walking distance including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the modern art museum, museum of natural history and botanical gardens among others. The older facade of the building is charming but the rooms are... More
