I spent one night at the Glidden House during a recent multi-day motorcycle trip of PA and OH. I wanted to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The NFL Draft was also in Cleveland so most accommodations were fully booked downtown. I booked the Glidden House and was totally happy I did. The hotel is located in a very nice part of Cleveland surrounded by schools and museums and also close to Little Italy and bus/train to town. The Glidden House has on-prem parking which for a motorcycle traveler is a welcome option. Checkin was great, the staff was super nice and helpful and I was given a room upgrade to a suite which was a pleasant surprise. The room was comfortable , clean, and had great light! The hotel provided a basic breakfast buffet (as this was in covid times) and was good. The bar at the Glidden House was a nice spot to have a drink and the bar tender was awesome. I slept well and really enjoyed my stay. I thank you and hope to return soon!

My wife and I stayed here for a staycation in July--middle of the pandemic. I was impressed with the measures put into place; we felt safe. The rooms are nice--nothing out of the ordinary, but clean and comfortable. The location is excellent for University Circle area. We are able to walk to the Art Museum, Cultural Gardens, etc. Two drawbacks--both pandemic related so these are not long-term issues. The breakfast provided (a boxed breakfast) did not seem up to par for the place; yogurt and an Otis Spunkmeyer muffin (a zillion calories). Second, the doors out to the side patio--where we ate--were locked on the outside so that if you went to eat on the patio you had to walk all the way to the front entrance to get back in. All in all, I would totally recommend this place for out-of-towners and staycationers.

Dear gefilte63, Thank you for your review of the Glidden House. I am happy to hear that you felt our hotel was clean and comfortable and that you felt safe. Since your last visit, we have discontinued the boxed breakfast and have initiated a complimentary buffet. I must apologize for the locked door. Not having it unlocked during breakfast hours was an oversight. I hope to see you again in the future.

The dining area and the sun porch are beautiful. It's a great location, near University Circle, in walking distance of the art museum & good eats on Euclid Avenue. The staff couldn't be nicer. The only problem was the room itself, which felt like a pretty average chain-hotel room. We could hear the people in the next room even when they were talking at a conversational level. Towels were almost sandpapery. And this is the first time in memory in any hotel anywhere where we were given one bar of soap to be shared between the sink and the shower. I realize it's a small thing, and I realize times are hard in a pandemic, but it felt symbolic of the averageness of the experience. It's also possible that the sound problem isn't so bad in the original part of the hotel; we were in what appeared to be a later addition.

I stayed at the Glidden for one night my first trip to Cleveland. The hotel was beautifully decorated without being too dusty. They managed to make breakfast still delicious and cozy in the fire lite dinning room even during COVID. Best of all, when I could not find an Uber available to the airport, one of the generous staff Tom gave me a ride!

Room Tip: It is an older house so I recommend a room on the top floor for least noise

We had a very nice stay here and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Great location within the overall Case Western campus. Easy walking distance to university circle and to the spectacular Cleveland Museum of Art. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has a nice cosy look and feel to it. Has a lot more charm than the typical large American chains. The room was quite large. Everything was in good working order. Highly recommended if you are visiting someone at Case.
