Located in Cleveland’s University Circle district, The Glidden House is a luxurious, 60-room boutique-hotel that is walking distance from Case Western Reserve University and many of Cleveland’s finest museums, institutions, as well as other cultural destinations. A large, French Gothic mansion built in 1910, The Glidden House offers vintage suites and modish guest rooms that are moderately priced. The Glidden House’s suites, all of which are named after a member of the Glidden family, are all located on the top floors of what was the original Glidden Mansion. Each suite is unique, carefully decorated, and offers modern amenities. Guests enjoy complementary wireless, 42-inch plasma TVs with HBO, as well as fireplaces, high-ceilings, and cherry and mahogany four-poster beds. The atmosphere in each of the rooms is a wonderful blend of historic charm and comfort. The Glidden House’s other rooms are equally luxurious, and you can choose to stay in a room with one queen bed, one king size bed, or two double beds. A European style, complimentary breakfast with fresh-baked pastries is offered daily in the original parlor and sunroom
