“Best of THE best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We LOVED Glidden House. We stayed there for my boyfriend's birthday. The house was beautiful! The staff is impeccable. It was so nice to talk to the bartender about the city, growing up here, and the history of the Glidden Family. He was able to get us a tour of the original house. The gentleman who did so was amazing. We are definitely coming back in the summer. A GREAT stay!!!!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Cleveland primarily to see the Art Museum. The hotel is beautifully restored and decorated with wonderful regional and national artists. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff from Perez at the front desk and the exceptional help from the concierge James are first rate! If you want to be near Case Western, Little Italy, or University Circle, this is the place.

Room Tip: No fitness room or pool but access to a fitness club nearby.

I have stayed at this hotel once a month for the past five years. It is the only place I stay when in Cleveland. Staff are amazing, attentive, and the hotel is elegant ... James at the front door has been a consistently warm and helpful person over these many years. I highly recommend the hotel!

We stayed 1 night, wish it could have been forever. Hehe. Wonderful staff, rooms beautiful & comfortable & great breakfast buffet (free w/ room). Hotel is very interesting, the architecture and grounds. We loved it! Open, warm & inviting feeling to it. Would stay again...and again.

Glidden House is located near Wade Oval (museum central!), great restaurants, Case Western Reserve University , Cleveland Clinic, University Circle and walking distance to Little Italy. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Cleveland or if you are a resident and just want a nights get-a-way. The rooms are very comfortable, the staff is friendly, and the breakfast is wonderful. If you are looking for a hotel with character, you can't go wrong with Glidden House. It's become a favorite of ours when we just want to pamper ourselves and leave the daily rat-race.

Beautiful old world charm. Breakfasts were wonderful, very European in feel and variety. Walls a little thin, but fellow guests were quiet (demographically speaking). Close to museums and Univerisity Circle. No complaints. Not a place for kids, riotous party groups, or family vacation stays. No exercise facilities or pool. Loved the running route around the area. Maps and towels provided. Bed was very comfortable, which is atypical in most hotels. Room was clean and nicely furnished.

Monday through Saturday the Palatte Bar is open. Order a drink, and then walk around the corner to sip your drink by the fireplace. The bartender was "generous" when he poured the night that we stayed at Glidden House! The next day, walk to one or more of the museums. If you happen to reserve one of the mansion rooms (sometimes named suites), then be sure to take a few refreshments to put in the in-room fridge. You can heat water in the microwave and enjoy the Starbuck's Via that you've brought, or fix the Emeril coffee that the hotel provides you in the room. Although tea bags are not provided in the room, there are excellent choices of tea at the breakfast buffet. Included with your room rate is a breakfast buffet that goes far beyond a continental breakfast. Even hot cereal and blueberries were on the buffet, morning after morning.

Room Tip: We could hear a little noise in the floor above us, but it didn't bother us. However, it might...
