In February, when making my reservations for a trip in June, I was put off by the room décor I saw on the internet. I called Glidden House and spoke to Laura Williams, the Front Office Manager. I expressed my concerns about the condition of the rooms. She agreed with my opinion, and assured me that in fact, the rooms...

Beautiful old Tudor home with a rich history. Greeted by friendly and Accomodating doorman. Front desk staff upon arrival was a bit inexperienced and not terribly friendly. We had requested a king bed and were told that only queen was available. The room itself was extremely clean, comfortable and the lighting was perfect. Bed was fine , mattress on the...

This is your basic motel attached to an historic house in the cultural district near Case Western and the Cleveland Museum. It is a wonderful part of town close to restaurants and attractions. It is not downtown. The house is charming and well maintained. The room was adequate; king bed, chairs, TV. The bathroom is comparable to a Hampton Inn,...

Last time we came to Cleveland Clinic we stayed at the Double Tree Hilton for the same rate. Double Tree did not offer breakfast with that price but they did offer free shuttle to The Clinic. The Glidden House Inn offered breakfast with the room rate and the breakfast was delicious. The room was beautiful and the grounds are wonderful...

The hotel rooms themselves are acceptable for the price, but the common rooms are very nice. Most important is the location, being within walking distance of the notable museums nearby, and a short ride down the street to Little Italy and just beyond that the Coventry area. Also there is a nice small cafe next door, and adequate parking out...

I try to stay at this historic landmark inn every time I have business appointments in Cleveland (which has been about twice a year the last 10 years or so). Very good restaurants are within walking distance. Sergio's is a favorite. Parking is free and it's walking distance to Case Western Reserve, art museums (check out the cafe for lunch-lipsmacking,...

I just returned from my second stay at this hotel while attending a guitar festival at the Cleveland Institute of Music. On both occasions I have stayed in one of the suites in the older part of the building, so I can't comment on the newer rooms. But both rooms I have had were very comfortable and well-furnished. Bathrooms are...

Perfect location for seeing the sights of Cleveland, located one block from the Botanic Gardens on the Case Western Reserve Campus. Lovely accommodations, modern and historic feel.
