This was amazing! My first trip during the pandemic so I was a little anxious, but this was so great. Everything was clean, social distancing was observed, everyone I saw inside had masks on. The girl at the front desk was so nice and chill. Parking was convenient. Cannot beat the location, it's right on campus. There was a ton of snow when I was there but they worked hard on clearing the sidewalks and the parking lot so I had no issues. Really great experience.

Fair 4.0
Not great
Booked a single king room. Arrived and checked in, got to the room and it was two doubles. No big deal, but the door to the room wouldnt latch. So I went to the front desk and explained the door latch situation and that the room should have been a king. Was given new keys for another room. Got to that room and it's two double beds again. Not the end of the world, but to have the problem twice was disappointing. Besides that, the hotel was acceptable, but certainly dated and not as nice as we were lead to expect based on the photos. Probably won't stay there again given the choice.

Great Valentine's Day Weekend.
Whenever we need a couple's treat the Glidden House is first on the list. It is cozy, clean and comfortable. The price is reasonable and includes a breakfast. Finally it is near world class entertainment opportunities such as the Art Museum, Botanical Gardens and Cleveland Orchestra. May I also include a shout out to L'albatros Brassierie + Bar which is next door. They prepared a hot to go version of their Valentine Day dinner for me to enjoy in my room at the Glidden House because I'm not yet ready to venture into in person dining. A fabulous weekend.

Where I forgot my husband.
My husband was a patient at UH hospital. This was a scheduled surgical stay. I was planning on driving home after his surgery to return the next morning. We live over an hour away. I decided to find a nearby hotel due to inclement weather. This is where my serenity started! The Glidden House was extraordinary! The tea was phenomenal and the staff were beyond helpful. The room was very clean and the bed was ahhhh, wonderful!! The best part was the mansion itself! I am in love and plan to return for a girls weekend!! My husband had to actually call me back to the hospital the next day, because I became lost in my wonderful relaxing cup of tea as I sat and watched the flame of the fireplace as I cleared my head as I drifted away to the lovely overhead music. Loved it from beginning to end!!

Very Good 8.0
Great location, lacking in amenities
We came to Cleveland to pick up our brother from college and stayed at Glidden House. It was a perfectly fine stay, the downstairs area was decorated for Christmas which was lovely. The hotel is very well located in University Circle, walking distance from a lot of places and there's free parking on-site which was great. I just felt that the rooms lacked character and the breakfast box was mediocre. I understand that during Covid it's a bit harder to have the same type of service but our breakfast box looked like something you'd give to a child on a field trip (a muffin, nature valley bar, fruit cup, yogurt, and orange juice). I've stayed at other hotels during this time and they would have a scheduled time for your room for breakfast or a takeaway box of a higher caliber. Overall our stay was fine but I just feel like there could be a few extra touches to make it great.

Wonderful place to stay
This hotel was a ray of sun shine. All the people were friendly and helpful. And very close to Cleveland clinics. Beautiful hotel. Pretty and clean rooms. We’ve stayed many places and I give this place all the stars I can
