By God...we were shocked. On a vacation to US and we came from LA tired. We went to Holiday Inn Cass Hotel in Wabash Avenue. Initially we were very happy to find accomodation in the magnificient mile area. But as we entered the room, we were surprised and breathless. My goodness, it was a 10×10 room with the bed occupying the major portion, room no. 1006. There was no room to open our bags. No place to dry our wet clothes..courtesy the weather in Chicago. We contacted front desk but they said sorry for tonight as the hotel was full. We thought of checking out, but it was raining really hard that evening. So we put on for the night. The next morning we went to the front desk and spoke to Mr.Corey. A fine person, Mr. Corey tried his best to solve our problem and gave us room no. 1000. This was a room with a slightly bigger dimension and we were relieved.
Rooms are ok and clean but very very small comparing to American standards.
Location wise, hotel is situated in a very nice location. There are many restaurents in Ontario street a block away. Major attractions like Hancock tower, Navy Pier and the lake beach are close by and within $ 10-15 by taxi.
Breakfast is usual and good. Complementary Wifi is fast. No fridge in room, no irons or rack to dry your clothes.
Service is good. Concergie is avaiable. They were kind to bring the luggage to the rooms.
It is a hotel which is good if you plan to use the room for a night's sleep. Great locational advantage for the low price for the room. Bus and CTA trains to OHare is just a few blocks away.
