This hotel is located in the posh area of Cleveland encompassing Case Western Reserve University. It's within walking distance of several great museums, including the outstanding and shamefully underexposed Dittrick Museum of Medical History. The modern Italian restaurant on the grounds, Trentina, is stellar; the breakfast buffet is pretty good, too. For those who prefer public transit, there's a recently... More

Just behind CIA and in the midst of Case Western Reserve University's sprawling campus, this is the best place to stay while delivering your kid to college, visiting students, or accompanying patients to University Hospital. (Your next closest choice is the Marriott Hotel on Euclid Ave.) CIA parents can call hotel directly to make reservations at the CIA discount of... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for our friends wedding. They had their reception here as well. Their reception was in the new area and it was spectacular! The staff, rooms, breakfast and location were wonderful! Hoping we have another excuse to visit this sweet place.

I have stayed in several hotels over the years that have been converted from historic buildings with less than optimum accommodations. The Glidden House, the former family home of the Glidden paint family is an exception. While researching lodging options for a recent college tour of Case Western, I found the Glidden House on Tripadvisor. I was a bit skeptical... More

If you are in a king room you will have more room than the two double bed room. The latter was cramped. Watch out walking around the end of the bed as the foot of the bed has the habit of jumping out and stubbing your toes. The sink spigot is a spray so the water flies all over when... More

This is a great hotel that is next to Case Western University. It is within walking distance to Little Italy, Museum of Art, Museum of History and plenty of restaurants. The staff was great and the breakfast was good. The breakfast does not hold much variety after a couple of days of the same thing every morning but what is... More

The location was perfect for museums, the Botanical Garden, and walking to restaurants. The staff was always courteous and very helpful when directions were needed. The mansion is beautiful and our suite was satisfactory. The breakfast both days was poached eggs, breakfast meat, oatmeal, muffins, croissants, and bread. The muffins, etc. were very fresh; the quality of the poached eggs... More

From beginning to end, clearly the best hotel experience I have had. Not a detail was missed. Needs were anticipated and fully met. Clean, beautiful, and friendly environment. Spacious room. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.
