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.
