The Glidden House Inn proved to be a wonderful retreat with a charming ambiance, nice and well-equipped rooms and a very friendly and knowledgable staff (how often do you find a concierge who knows his way in IT?). The breakfast is included and provides a rich selection of excellent bread choices, warm dishes, fruit and beverages. There is cosy bar and parking is free. In addition (and for some perhaps even more importantly), the Glidden House is right in the middle of the University Circle (the Case Western Reserve University circle that is). The circle is a gem for those who love art and culture, walking amid classic old and high-tech modern architecture embedded in a green oasis. And yes, there are also students, but they blend in nicely. If you are looking for a short trip or a long weekend to energize and fuel your mind with the good stuff, book a room at Glidden House Inn and enjoy its surroundings. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the vending machines (but that is a given in any hotel, is it not?).

Perfect location for walking to: the art museum, Severance Hall, Cleveland Institute of Music, Cleveland Institute of Art, Case Western Reserve University. We were there to look at schools and took a walk every morning through the beautiful green areas of University Circle, where all these institutions are located.
Bedding was very comfortable. Rug could have been cleaner. Bathroom was fine. The front desk clerks were alternately cold and unfriendly, and quite nice and helpful. The concierge James was very kind and we appreciated his advise and knowledge. The breakfast was fine. Pricey but if location is your top concern, this is the place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor to avoid having to keep your blinds shut, as people walk right by t...

The Glidden House is a lovely old mansion converted to a hotel, and the building has great charm and character. Unfortunately it seems to be run by teenagers, who, though they're very nice, don't have a very firm idea of how to provide service. It would be nice to see this wonderful facility under better management.

This was my first and only day in Cleveland and the stay at Glidden made this a great experience. I was a bit fearful of Cleveland and thought it would not be a very pleasant place to be, but I was wrong and Glidden house helped me change my attitude.The purpose of the trip was a college visit to Case Western. The short stay in this charming hotel added a great deal to our visit Fortunately, the weather was perfect and we were very comfortable walking around the campus and reaching the main university circle street. We actually had a fast take out from the Dennys?/ hamburger place just across 2 parking lots from Glidden House. This was a very small takeout place almost hidden away, but the salad and burgers were very good.We had one of the larger rooms/suites, as that was the only one available, thus the rate was a bit higher. Breakfast included with the room was great and in a beautiful room.
