“Perfect location for Cleveland Clinic, museums and restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Having made a number of trips to Cleveland Clinic over the past year and tried different hotels and B&Bs, we most recently have been twice at Glidden House and decided it is best for us. It is built around a mansion of the early 20th century and is located right on the Case Western Reserve University campus. This means it is only a little over a mile from the Clinic and right next to wonderful museums and convenient to good restaurants (including the Little Italy neighborhood that I particularly like). Our room was excellent, but it is the public area of the hotel and the breakfast area which are most extraordinary in decor and furnishings. The artwork on the walls is of particular interest. The breakfast buffet is not quite as wonderful as the rest of the hotel but still perfectly adequate. We would be glad to go back even when we don't have Clinic appointments.

We stayed in the front, historic portion of the Inn and loved the charm of our room. It was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Well worth the little extra we paid. Although, in all fairness, I did not see the standard rooms. The heated bathroom floor was a pleasant surprise. And the staff couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. The location was perfect for a visit with our nephew at Case Western Reserve University.

My husband and I have stayed here over 10 times and tried every type of room they have. Even in the old part of the hotel, we can hear our neighbors' conversation, every cough or hearty laugh. We have asked to change rooms, only to be put in another loud room. Recently we stayed in the room directly above reception and could hear the woman at the front desk talking on the phone, to the point that we knew what her conversation was about.

We recently tried the Hotel Intercontinental, but they are doing construction and that was loud too. At least the Glidden House is less expensive. Is there not a quiet hotel in Cleveland? We just want a quiet night of sleep where we aren't going to hear our neighbors or the staff in the hallway.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get an adjoining room. Those are the worst.

we have been to the glidden house a fair number of times and it does not disappoint. it is fairly small and cozy (it feels like a large bed and breakfast to some extent at the front of the house, and just like a regular hotel to the back of the house).

the art museum and botanical gardens are a block or two away. it is close to Little Italy where you can find an abundance of restaurants. there is also a nice little french restaurant and a small pub beside the property. there used to e a very good restaurant adjacent to the glidden house, but unfortunately that has since closed.

there is limited parking; we were there for thanksgiving and took the last spot upon returning from a family dinner- it was a little tight but still manageable in an SUV

We booked in to Glidden House for 2 days & it was a perfect experience. It's a small property on the edge of the Case Western Reserve campus & within walking distance to several museums. The atmosphere was great & the property was a terrific value with free parking and full hot breakfast included.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are preferred.

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.
