A Gem of a Small Hotel

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.

Elegant Boutique Hotel Experience

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

On Sunday night, when we were there, the hotel restaurant was closed but Little Italy is a short walk with many restaurants. We ate at one that had just opened -- Mia Bella -- delicious with friendly, helpful staff.

great location

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a coffee house next door and night clubs and restaurants nearby. The Cleveland Botanic Garden, Severance Hall, the Art Museum and the campus of Case Western University are in the neighborhood. It is a short drive to Little Italy, the Warehouse district and other Cleveland neighborhoods.

Glidden House - Convenient

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.
