Our stay in the Glidden House for my mother's memorial service was first rate -- they hosted the event and I recommend them highly for any kind of event. Beautiful surroundings, fabulous location, lovely quiet rooms, and the nicest staff anywhere. Don't miss the lobby bar: the bartender made us feel welcome, relaxed, and makes a mean margarita!

Fantastic hotel in so many ways. Beautiful, clean, spacious rooms. Modern but with a vintage charm. Free breakfast, free wi-fi, free bottled water - the small but much appreciated touches that help contribute to an overall great experience. Great value for the price. Location is ideal if visiting Case Western University. It's also only a half mile away from Little Italy. Front desk staff were friendly but I wish they could have provided more detailed recommendations on restaurants and running paths. Would definitely stay here again!

Room had soundproofing issues. Suggest not staying in “suites”. Overall, love the location and would give it another try.

A wonderful place to stay when visiting Case. Right on campus in a lovely building with immaculate rooms, truly a gem. Breakfast is wonderful and any other amenity you made need is taken care of by the front desk.

Room Tip: Any room seems to be just great!

Great hospitality, good breakfast,superb location. My son is an incoming freshman at Case Western Reserve, and we have found our little slice of home to come to when we visit.
The boutique atmosphere is lovely and inviting.

The Glidden House Inn proved to be a wonderful retreat with a charming ambiance, nice and well-equipped rooms and a very friendly and knowledgable staff (how often do you find a concierge who knows his way in IT?). The breakfast is included and provides a rich selection of excellent bread choices, warm dishes, fruit and beverages. There is cosy bar and parking is free. In addition (and for some perhaps even more importantly), the Glidden House is right in the middle of the University Circle (the Case Western Reserve University circle that is). The circle is a gem for those who love art and culture, walking amid classic old and high-tech modern architecture embedded in a green oasis. And yes, there are also students, but they blend in nicely. If you are looking for a short trip or a long weekend to energize and fuel your mind with the good stuff, book a room at Glidden House Inn and enjoy its surroundings. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the vending machines (but that is a given in any hotel, is it not?).
