Stayed here two nights on business. Wellcome was fast and friendly and I got to my room quickly. Room was a good size and bathroom had a bath in it. The bed was comfortable and everywhere was clean. The fitting are all a little tired but not excessively so, typical of an older hotel and personally I prefer the character...

I thought this hotel was going to be a perfect fit for my boyfriend's 30th birthday celebration. The hotel room was fine, and the staff was too. I had hoped for more of an interactive staff. We checked in and was told to go to the second floor for our room, that was the only time staff interacted with us....

Charming hotel, friendly staff! We had a beautiful and comfortable room. Being a former business tycoon's home, the hotel did a good job with appropriate furnishings and decor. Also, a very good complimentary breakfast served. Great location. Will definitely come back, if in Cleveland.

my wife and I loved this hotel! I took a chance in booking using only online reviews. Not only were we impressed with service, food, and atmosphere,[all of which were fantastic], but we received an impressive history lesson when we arrived. highly recommended!

Nice rooms. Only coffee maker room, no microwave or fridge. The staff is excellent, enthusiastically tending to your every request. Next to a great restaurant, Tratina, which provides room service. The common areas are rustic. The breakfast is adequate. Free parking, but no shuttle to Cleveland clinic. It is a 1 mile, 25 minute walk to the clinic, which we...

Overall the Glidden House is very nice and conveniently located near many of the museums and attractions of University Circle. The mansion suites are nicely appointed but they are not all created equal. We had the misfortune of being assigned room 225. It is much smaller than the rooms pictured on the website. I assume the pictures are from the...

This hotel is very elegant in every way. A breath of fresh air. It was very clean, housekeepers did not miss much. It was very comfortable and quiet. I was able to get a full nights rest without a problem. The hotel and rooms remind me of hotels use to be.

My husband and I came here to celebrate my 60th birthday. We chose this hotel because it was not a "big box" hotel and promised the elegance of yesteryear. We were not disappointed! The hotel is simply beautiful with the old world charm of crown molding, paintings and elegant fireplaces. In addition, we had the modern conveniences of wi fi,...

The Glidden House is reminiscent of the older hotels in Charleston. An alcove off the foyer for check in, a small bar a few steps away, the old hardwood floors covered with Persian carpets. A very comfortable feeling as you walk in, albeit a little quirky-just like Cleveland. The rooms are a cut above the chains in this price point,...
