Great location. Our go to place to stay while visiting son at Case. Stayed here many times and always look forward to going back.

8/10 Very Good

Switch hitter
This hotel is 2 buildings in one. The historic building with its lobby and dining room are really cool and face the botanical garden across the street. The portion of the hotel with the rooms is newer but probably hasn't been renovated in 20 years or so and could really use a refresh. Everything was clean and functional, but the rooms don't live up to the beauty of the lobby building.

Look no further!
Our stay was nothing short of fantastic! Hotel was beautiful, clean and welcoming. Lex behind the front desk was friendly, helpful and generous. Rooms were nicely appointed, clean and quiet. Complimentary breakfast each morning was tasty and plentiful. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful Experience!
Stayed at the Glidden House for 4 nights and have zero complaints. The hotel itself was just gorgeous. Lots of character and charm. The rooms were spacious, quiet and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, and that includes all staff, not just the front desk. Breakfast was awesome - way better than what you get at chain hotels. We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and will definitely stay here again if we’re ever in Cleveland.
