Doubletree Cleveland – Tudor Arms Hotel

We’re happy to welcome one of Cleveland’s newest (and oldest) hotels to town, The DoubleTree by Hilton – The Tudor Arms.

When most would have torn the worn-out building down to start anew, Cleveland resurrected an architectural gem. Designed by Cleveland architect Frank Mead and built in 1931, the opulent building originally housed the Cleveland Club, a private men’s athletic club. By nature, the building housed pools, racket ball courts and other means for entertainment. After a top-notch restoration, these luxurious amenities meant originally for Cleveland’s most powerful now serve hotel guests.

In 1939 the men’s club was turned into a hotel and in the 1960’s the hotel was purchased by Case Western Reserve University and became dorm rooms for college students. The building would sit empty for many years before Case eventually sold it to MRN, a local development group best known for its creation of the E. 4th Entertainment District. In a time of economic hardship, MRN found a way to restore the Tudor Arms to its original splendor.

Upon arrival, visitors can almost hear the celebrations from years past. Major business decisions happened here, our grandparents got married here and many earned a world-class college degree while living within the walls of the Tudor Arms Hotel. And now it’s time to add another chapter to the books.

Whether you’re visiting Cleveland from afar or you’re a local in need of a night to yourself, the Tudor Arms is an excellent choice.

DoubleTree by Hilton – The Tudor Arms Hotel is located at 10660 Carnegie Avenue near downtown and University Circle. For more information and to book your stay click here and to start planning your trip to Cleveland visit www.positivelycleveland.com.

Glidden House


Located on the campus of Case Western Reserve University on Cleveland’s east side, Glidden House is Cleveland’s only full-service boutique hotel. An impressive, renovated French-Gothic mansion, the hotel features stunning beauty and legendary charm combined with a chic, urban design and all of the modern conveniences travelers have come to expect.

Glidden House was built in 1910 by the son of the founder of the Glidden Paint and Varnish Company and eventually purchased by a group of private investors who converted the home to a 60 room boutique hotel in the late 1980s. Renovators were pleased to uncover original beams, carvings, woodwork and other architectural details that today add to the warmth and feel of the property.

Guests may choose from two types of rooms at Glidden House. Modern guest rooms and vintage suites offer plasma screen televisions, complementary wireless internet, work stations, concierge service and a European style breakfast buffet featuring hot and cold items served daily. Guests are also invited to gather for drinks and small plates during happy hour at the hotel’s bar. Fine dining can be found just steps away at Sergio’s in the Circle located in the mansion’s carriage house.
