The Glidden House

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Did not know how to print my prebill with correct reduced Orbitz rate, figured it out by departure check out with correct bill at correct rate. Got home & learned that my bank account was overdrawn by incorrect rate plus taxes ($50 approximately). We'll see if they can process a refund correctly.

Festively decorated for the holidays, Glidden House is a gem of old world Cleveland. Conveniently located within walking distance of the Botanical Gardens, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Natural History Museum, Museum of Music, and a diversity of restaurants.

Charming small hotel on Case Western University campus. Beautiful surroundings. It is a pleasant, five minute walk from the hotel to the Cleveland Art Museum, on the campus. The room was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and professional.

The staff was very accomodating to me, the actual hotel was so beautiful inside and out, and their breakfast was delicious.

I loved our stay & would have loved to stay another night. Located on Case Western Reserve's campus, it was the perfect hotel for my daughter's campus visit. The staff was friendly. The hotel was quiet. The room was comfortable with a good shower and comfy bed. The Italian restaurant next door was yummy (but a little expensive). The complimentary breakfast was delicious. I can't say anything negative about Glidden House!

I had a wonderful stay at your exquisite hotel. Everything was clean, neat, and lovely. James went out of his way to find me a gift bag for my grandson's present. Louise and Susanne were so helpful when my room key didn't work. You have a wonderful staff; thry are kind, caring, helpful, and friendly to everyone. I wish that I had the opportunity to return to Cleveland just to stay at your wonderful hotel. Thank you!

Charming and beautiful victorian hotel. Great breakfast. Loved francis kavanaugh glidden suite.

Quiet on a Sunday evening. Good cold breakfast. Did not try the "hot" items, which looked lukewarm. Desk people were helpful--but not all were friendly.

Enjoyed our stay. Great location, walking distance to museums and great restaurants in Little Italy.

Good small hotel. Nice italian restaurant next door. Good breakfast in hotel

The hotel service was excellent and front desk staff were so friendly.

This hotel located in the University Circle area is close to a number of attractions that we wanted to visit. Tops among them is the Cleveland Museum of Art which is just a short walk away. The Botanical Garden and several other museums are also within walking distance. We ate dinner one night at L'Abatros, a very good French restaurant also only a block away. The staff went overboard to make our stay enjoyable, even driving us in the evening to a great little Sicilian restaurant and to Severance Hall for the symphony one night. The complimentary breakfast is very good with lots of hot and cold choices and is served in the library and sun room of the original, historic home. Delightful! The only thing lacking is an exercise room.

Stayed here multiple times 6-7 years ago. Had to return to Cleveland and wasn't let down by Glidden House. Still clean, reliable, and pleasant.

This restored 1910 house was a delightful place to stay on our 2-night trip to Cleveland. It is on the Case Western Reserve campus, across the street from the botanical garden and down the street from the main art museum, other cultural institutions nearby. Free parking and an excellent breakfast buffet made the Glidden a wonderful experience. L'albatros is a wonderful restaurant that is a 3 minute walk away.

Equal to others in the same range.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the room was quiet and clean and the location was within walking distance of many amenities.

My husband and I visited Cleveland for the first time and found that the Glidden House was near neiborhoods and sights that were very enjoyable. The staff at the Inn were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was included in the price of the room and offered a nice choice of foods. I would definitely recommend it to friends and plan to stay there again on our next visit.

Our room at the Glidden House was very comfortableand clean. The Glidden House is very covenient and the place to stay when visiting Case Western Reserve University or nearby sites/museums in the Cleveland/Cleveland Heights area. Onsite parking is tight, but we managed to get a parking spot every day. The daily continental breakfast is simple, but ample, and the ambience is nice. The restaurant next door Sergio's is also very good, but I would recommend advance reservations.
