My daughter and I stayed here for two nights while touring the campus of Case Western Reserve University. The staff members were all extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable with nice bathroom amenities. The room came with a coffee maker and two pods, plus a bottle of water -- all replenished daily. I appreciated the casement windows...

I stayed here while visiting CIM and had the CIM rate. We had just come from a Hampton Inn in Ann Arbor. Hotel Glidden is a very different experience The room was spacious (although 2 doubles and not queens), the hotel was quite charming. We ordered room service from the restaurant next door and ate by the fireplace, which was...

Everything about our stay was perfect including the accommodations, the lovely building and surrounding area and the spectacular breakfast in the solarium. The negatives are the parking situation especially if there is a wedding or other event taking place and the lack of choice of restaurants within walking distance if one arrives in the evening and needs dinner close by....

I stayed there 4 times and have never been disappointed. This is a boutique hotel, so it does not have a gym or pool. Pros: quite, comfortable bed, good breakfast that is included, large desk for working. The staff has always been helpful and polite. Close to college, and the Cleveland Clinic. Free parking. Cons: limited parking

The location was perfect for visit to CIM with only a three minute walk. The room was big and comfortable. The breakfast was nice. The lobby was very impressive and a nice place to hang out. The staff were helpful but did mix up my bill with another room. It got sorted and staff apologised.

This is our fourth visit. This is a great alternative to the cookie cutter hotels normally available. The service, the small bar, and the sitting area for breakfast simply make you slow down and relax.

We recently had the pleasure of spending a couple of nights at The Glidden House. It is truly a gem with helpful and pleasant hosts. It is really well located and a short walk to the museums and botanical garden. The breakfast is to die for. We rate this hotel as a five star.

We have stayed here twice, one time two years ago and recently. The facility is convenient to many Cleveland institutions, such as Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. The building was constructed in the early 20th Century as a residence for the Glidden family of the paint industry. The facility has been expanded...

This historic home is located right next to the museum district. The art museum, natural history museum , and botanical gardens are short walking distance. The breakfast is very nice. I want to give a special thanks to Leslie who filled us in on the history of the building. WiFi excellent. Parking good. A lovely restaurant 50 yards away.
