I styaed here for two nights while working at the cleveland Institute of music, which is directly across the street. It literally couldn't be closer.

Breakfast was nice, though a little carb-heavy and no gluten free options (not a criticism, just info). Breakfast could have continued a bit later, however.

Also highly recommend Cleveland yoga which is a 5-10 min walk away

The Glidden House is an elegant refined hotel in Cleveland,s University Circle area. The setting is quiet and attractive; it's almost like a nature park around the hotel. Various cultural highlights are near at hand (Severance Hall, the Art Museum, and so on), and even casual walks in the area are interesting. Every aspect of the hotel is excellent: the welcome, the advice and assistance, the breakfast (in a solarium), the ordering of taxis, and so on. Cleveland is surprisingly interesting and impressive -- and the Glidden House simply adds to the city's appeal.

Flew-In for a meeting.....this historic hotel feels more like a homey bed-and-breakfast than a hotel.....It only has 52 rooms, but feels more quaint than that,. The service is top-notch, the staff super-friendly and helpful.....the shower was strong....and the bed was as good as mine at home....which is saying a BIG something. Overall this is a 5-Star property without being stuffy. Next trip to Cleveland and I will be at Glidden House again. BTW, the restaurant L'Albatros is about a block away and is also 5-Star, but relaxed come-as-you-are french cuisine.....Had a table by the fireplace....just beautiful.....

A very nice, boutique style hotel in the heart of University Circle; that location really makes it outstanding. In walking distance to Museum of Art, Botanical Gardens, Severance Hall and amid the campus of Case Western Reserve University. They offer a complimentary breakfast featuring excellent pastries and danish, home made by a neighboring coffee house ( not the usual frozen stuff found on many hotel breakfasts ). The hotel itself is a restored mansion, very nice.

At first glance, this hotel looked awesome. Who wouldn't want to stay in an old mansion with updates? My stay was nice, but it was nothing spectacular. If you like the feel and sounds of an old house, you'll get them here. I could hear the conversations of the people in the room next to us. My husband and I had booked a suite; on the hotel website the options are regular hotel room or suite. We splurged and picked the suite. The pictures on the site showed a spacious sitting room as well as a fireplace. Our suite had neither of these things. I think there were nicer suites in the hotel but they all came at the same price-tag which doesn't seem fair to me. If I pay the suite price, I want the fireplace pictured on the website!

Pros:
-Very cute building.
-Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
-The little bar was cute.
-The breakfast area was gorgeous.
-I enjoyed the location.
-Breakfast was better than your average hotel continental.

Cons:
-Our suite.
-The noise.
-There was not enough parking around the building even though we were told there was.
-The morning coffee was terrible.
-The show was very awkward to maneuver.

Overall, it was an ok stay. Not bad enough to complain, but not nice enough to want to rush back.

Room Tip: If you book a suite, ask NOT to be placed in 223. It's not as nice/large as the website pictures.
