I am not sure what went on with other reviewers but my experience was fantastic. Hotel is beautiful and elegant. Room was spotless, large, well lite and well appointed. It had a coffee/tea machine. If you want a refrigerator go stay at a Days Inn. The best hotel breakfast (included w. Room) I have ever had, and I travel a... More

The Good -- We have stayed at this hotel before, and liked it enough to come back again. I had three days of tests at the Cleveland Clinic and this hotel is only a short bus ride or walk from the Clinic's extensive campus. Our breakfasts were as in the past very pleasant and served in traditional rooms of the... More

I would give this place 5 stars for atmosphere, quaintness, and historic value. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer as much as it should for this century. There was no microwave and we had to pay for a refrigerator, which we were not told in advance. The WiFi was free, but it wouldn't connect, so there was basically no WiFi in the... More

Glidden House is nice house from the early 1900 hundreds. My double room was ok, something was however wrong with the aircon the first night and it was freezing cold. It got fixed the next day. The breakfast ends at 9.00, very early! The Internet is not stable at all; I had colleagues who had the same problem. It is... More

My sister and I traveled to Cleveland to go to the art museum for the Monet to Matisse exhibit. We were so glad we stayed at the Glidden House. It was comfortable, clean, and historically interesting. The staff were all friendly and helpful. It was only a five minute walk to the museum. Trentina was right next door, where we... More

For quite a few years, I was living just across the road from Glidden House (in the dormitories of CIM/CWRU) and often wondered what it was like inside. My friends' parents would stay here when thy visited and always raved about it, particularly the breakfast, which took on a sort of legendary status in my mine. Finally, years later, I... More

As others have said, the Glidden house is on the national register of historic properties. It is on the campus of case Western University and across from the botanical gardens, near severance Hall and the museums and close to Cleveland clinic. The historic part of the hotel is impeccably maintained. All of the rooms in that section are suites. I... More

Excellent inn with bed and breakfast. Very convenient to the the Case Western Reserve University campus, and across the street from the Cleveland Botanical Garden and the Museum of Art. Room was very quiet. Breakfast was just OK. Only baked eggs and oatmeal, with toast bacon. Marilyn said the coffee was to her liking, which made it weak to my... More

This is a beautiful, perfectly-maintained building that is on the National Historic Register. The bed was very comfortable, the lobby, room and bathroom elegant. The staff was perfect. The location is wonderful - you are literally next door to the Art museum, Museum of Natural History, and botanical gardens, as well as the Children's Museum. It is a short walk... More

I recently spent a weekend at the National Register of Historic Places Glidden House on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. It afford the quintessential bed and breakfast accommodations and gustatory fare. In this holiday season I reveled in the lit fireplaces that rekindled fond childhood memories. The well appointed rooms were ample for any discerning guest. Some rooms... More
