Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful place. Only drawback is paying for king size bed and getting a queen and the box breakfast of oj muffin yogurt and granola bar fell way short of a "local cuisine breakfast"

Good 6.0
beautiful place, poor sleep.
Lovely place, very clean and staff were very nice. There was a very loud squeaky bed above me that got a lot of action and I had a very bad sleep. OIL that bed! The boxed breakfast was not good, everything was sugar based - cup of sugar fruit cocktail, sugar granola bar, sugar yogurt, etc. If you want a sugar high just go for it.

est Stay-cation in Cleveland!
This is the best place to enjoy University Circle! The rooms are clean, the public spaces are awesome! There is an indoor and an outdoor patio, a cozy dining room with a fireplace, and other great spaces to enjoy the hotel. We loved the soft beds and historical feel! Also, we found it a better value than most of the downtown hotels. They had great coffee and tea in the morning and a breakfast box with lots of goodies because of covid. It was quiet even though a wedding party stayed there! We will definitely come back again!

A place to sleep
Room is clean but dated covid puts a damper on the experience. Looked forward to breakfast but it was just a bag. If restaurants can serve so should hotels! Been to nicer places in Cleveland for business monthly. Five of you need a place to sleep.

Glidden House Covid style
Building is historic but showed signs of age. Room was ok. ventilation fan made noise, furniture worn, wooden bed creaked a lot. There was no place near to get food, box breakfast was yogurt, a granola bar and muffin (covid) paid 10.00 to park in an empty lot. Was a lot of money for what was received. No other amenities. Front desk nice- housekeeping showed up at our door before 9:00am after we were told there would not be services due to Covid.

Elegant and Perfect Location
We found the Glidden House to be a perfect location for visiting close-by Cleveland museums. Checking in was very quick, the room was lovely, and the amenities were perfect. Parking was also convenient. The take COVID-19 cautions seriously--something we want in a hotel. We look forward to a return visit to the Glidden House soon.
