I usually stay downtown near the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame and Progressive Field, but needed to look elsewhere this past trip due to my usual hotel being sold out. But, thanks to TripAdvisor I found a real gem with Glidden House. Lots of museums in the area, but you do need to drive ~8 minutes to the ballpark... More

Stayed one night - wonderful ambiance if you enjoy historic mansions. The location in the middle of the Case Western campus was very convenient for us. Most of the rooms are in the recent addition, where we stayed. We loved the traditional decor and the art collection displayed in the common areas. The breakfast buffet was very nice - ample...

Glidden House is extremely convenient for any visit to University Circle. I enjoyed that it feels like part of the Case Western campus. Room was very nice - only negative was the solid-colored gold carpet looked very soiled. I see now why most hotels have darker patterned carpets - they are probably in the same condition, you just don't notice... More

If this is the best in Cleveland, I'd hate to see the others. But after seeing downtown Cleveland, perhaps it is. I certainly no longer blame Lebron James for going to Miami! Seriously, I was disappointed in the Glidden House, particularly after seeing the other reviews. The room was nothing special at all and there were many stains on the... More

Where do I even begin? Do I begin with the dirty bathroom when I checked into my room? Or the other room in our party soaking wet from the broken air conditioner? We were in town for a wedding and this is where everyone was staying. I normally would stay at a Marriott property but this was convenient to where... More

Took a college tour trip with my daughter and spent a night at the Glidden House. It's conveniently located on the Case Western University campus. It's a beautiful building with a lovely patio area and it just oozes period charm. The reception area was lovely and plush and set the tone for the stay. We arrived, hungry, at dinner time.... More

I musty agree with other reviewers; I would stay here over a downtown hotel. Basically on the Case Western Reserve Campus, it is within walking distance of several museums. It is also a short drive to downtown; it only took us 15 minutes to drive from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to the Glidden House (through a lovely... More

We stayed here when visiting Cleveland for a concert in Cain Park. We were happy with the cleanliness, friendliness of the staff (especially James), free parking, and better-than-average breakfast buffet. The only suggestion I would make for future guests is to place the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door before going to bed. We were awakened by heavy pounding... More

What a wonderful experience we had staying from June 9, 10, and 11, 2013, at the Glidden House very close to Case Western Reserve University. The hotel is within walking distance of the Botanical Gardens, art museum, history museums, and the historical, Little Italy. And, the accommodations are excellent with free wifi, free parking, and free breakfast. The breakfast consisted... More
