“Just Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The Glidden House is an excellent boutique hotel located in a very pretty and safe part of Cleveland. We paid $159 per night and that included a hot and cold breakfast. The room was large and comfortable. The king bed was terrific. Bathroom amenities were excellent quality. And iron in the room was a plus.

Three other comments:. First, the hallway can be noisy with people talking enroute to their rooms. The sound really travels. Second, the inroom coffee needs a serious upgrade. Third, door hinges squeak and need some lubrication. All in all, minor quibbles about an otherwise excellent hotel. Highly recommended.

The Glidden House is a warm, cozy and comfortable change from the usual chain hotels. It screams history, family and opulence! Tucked into the campus of Case Western University and amidst the curling streets sits a gorgeous old house that has been refurbished to near original, but with a new trendy elegance. I was traveling with a co-worker and found this house to be just what we needed after a long, full-day conference. We both slept soundly. The morning breakfast buffet started our long day with everything we longed for and more. James was nice enough to share some of the house's history and some helpful tips on what to "check out" while in Cleveland. We had a wonderful 3 day weekend and were able to tour the city easily. Loved the
CMOA and the Glow botanical gardens (across the street). Close enough to all the "hot spots" yet remote enough to be tranquil. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: The third floor was quiet, not many noises thru the night

The location is great - within walking distance to the museums and Case. But the rooms are just ok, and the building is just ok too - not really a robber baron mansion like the pictures might lead you to think, but a fairly nice old house that has a regular old boxy addition with low ceilings. Breakfast buffet is mediocre at best - spoiled orange juice, plus lots of meat and pastries that aren't worth the calories, and weird eggs cooked in cups with cheese. This isn't a bad place - it just doesn't live up to the hype or the price tag.

The Glidden House provides a comfortable stay in a well decorated historical building. What makes it even better however is that it is on the beautiful campus of Case Western University and within easy walking distance of numerous museums, quaint bars and the beautiful Severance Hall; home of the Cleveland Orchestra. A great base location for a weekend of exploring.

I want to express my wholehearted thanks to Glidden House for all of their time and effort to make our wedding something wonderful. Everyone went above and beyond in order to create a pure fairytale that we will always remember.

All of us truly appreciate everything they did. The team was amazing and we were lucky to have their expertise and dedication. It would not have been nearly as perfect without Leary and the entire Glidden House staff.

Additionally, all of our guests, both local and out-of-towners LOVED the venue. They will not stop gushing about Glidden House. They thought it was a great place to stay as well as host a big event.

Thank you again, Glidden House. You are the BEST!!

My wife and I stayed here for a wedding, very nice, quiet and in an excellent neighborhood. There are many great sites to look at only steps from the front door of the hotel. The breakfast was a great addition to have in this updated Inn. We will be going back.

My husband and I came here because of the close location to the Cleveland Art Museum, well within walking distance in good weather. And also because we were celebrating our anniversary.
Very nice room with an extraordinary tall bed, extremely comfortable. The whole hotel was extremely nice and clean. Staff very polite and attentive, recommended a great local restaurant for dinner since Sergio's, their hotel restaurant, is closed due to the death of the owner.
Curtains were large wooden slats, not very condusive for making a dark room.
We certainly would return.
