This hotel’s location is perfect for all the attractions of University Circle. If you're going to the Museum of Art, Botanical Garden, Western Reserve Museum, Natural History Museum or Severance Hall, this is where you want to stay. You might pay a bit more, but it beats driving from downtown. Plus, the Glidden House has free on-site parking, which will save you a lot of money and hassle. The mansion itself is a historic treasure (1910, Gothic Revival), and the staff is top-notch.

The Glidden House Inn is another historic Cleveland hotel that really goes above and beyond for their guests. I feel like that’s one of those expected perks of staying at an individual Inn rather than a chain hotel and the Glidden House certainly lives up to expectations. When making your reservations, feel free to ask questions and make special requests, as the Glidden House is all about customer service. They help make that romantic getaway even more special and are known for their event planning when it comes to renting the property as a possible wedding locale or reception spot. It's also located in a great area if you want to see some of the prettier suburbs of Cleveland as well as the walking-distance museums and attractions.

Love, love, love the Glidden House Inn! This mansion-turned-inn is definitely a hidden Cleveland gem. When a friendly concierge holds the front door open to greet you, you know you're in for a great experience. Every corner of this property is beautifully decorated; the Gliddens certainly had great taste! There are two different dining areas for breakfast and a snug little bar down the hall for evening cocktails. This hotel has everything from far-from-basic basic rooms to exceptional suites which feature heated bathroom floors and iPod docking stations (to play your music through speakers in the room!). If you're staying at the Glidden for some of the nearby attractions, be sure to book your stay Tuesday-Saturday -- some of those museums are closed on Sunday and Monday and you wouldn't want to miss out!
