Interesting history and very friendly staff. Great place to have a wedding! This was the man that invented the Glidden house paint. It is a hotel and also you can have parties or weddings here. Very pretty!

We stayed at The Glidden House one night, a Monday while helping our daughter move from Texas to New York. I picked it based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. We had a "Traditional Room King Bed" on the 3rd floor. Very comfortable and the bathroom fixtures are Kohler, with a big bath. The room temperature was controlled via...

My husband and I stayed for the weekend of a family reunion. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms clean, the staff friendly and attentive. Good breakfasts. Nice bar in-house. We were able to easily visit the art museum and the botanical gardens. The only problem was that one serving of caffeinated and one serving of decaf coffee was in the...

My son and i stayed here touring Case Western and it was really nice. Rooms are comfortable (really comfortable beds in particular), decor is very nice, very homey but elegant atmosphere. Location cannot be beat for case western or for the many other attractions nearby. Nice breakfast too. Would definitely return

Family stayed here for a reunion. Beautiful atmosphere, spacious room, wonderful breakfast, and friendly staff! Several areas to sit for visiting which was great for catching up with the family. There are plans for another reunion at this hotel.

We have visited the Glidden House several times in the past but our recent stay has proven that their standards are still at the excellent level. The room was well furnished and immaculate. The robes and toiletries provided were of sufficient size and very nice. The rooms are large and uncluttered with plenty of space. We had a very comfortable...

I'm very confused by some of the previous negative reviews. Nothing about this hotel is negative. My stay at this hotel was wonderful. The beds were so comfortable and my family raved about the breakfast. I enjoyed the 24 hour expresso machine. The location is safe and close to museums and restaurants. If I ever come back to Cleveland I...

We stopped in at Glidden House during an unexpected layover in Cleveland. Gorgeous establishment! Wonderful and efficient check-in and check-out; we even got to have our room early! Nicely decorated in the style of the house's architecture. Super comfortable bed and lovely linen. Can't say anything negative about the room or the hotel itself. Breakfast was however disappointing; slow clearing...

There are several reasons to recommend The Glidden House but its location is what we found the best. Walking to hospitals, museums, and first rate restaurants in a lovely and vibrant area of Cleveland plus all the University based activities really make this a wonderful place to bed down. Friendly and helpful staff. Best breakfast buffet since Europe. Easy access...
