My mom and I stayed here for one night while visiting Chicago to see an Oprah taping. We needed a clean room for a short overnight trip and the Holiday Inn Hotel Cass did the trick. The red line train is two blocks away on E. Grand Ave and taxis are easy to access in front. Restaurants surround the area. Each staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. The lobby is nicely updated with a fireplace and sitting area. A complimentary breakfast is available beginning at 6:30am on weekdays in the lobby and I was impressed by the spread. The room, though compact, was clean, modern and agreeable for the price. We had a room on the street side offering us a nice view of the sears tower and other high rises.
On the negative side, the walls are thin and I could hear our neighbor’s TV and sirens from outside. A housekeeping cart was parked in front of our room making it impossible to enter without moving it and thankfully, we did because it remained outside our door our entire visit. The bathrooms, while nice, are tiny with no counter space. And although the hotel has been updated, perhaps the bathroom piping has not because it made a funny, loud belching sound every time the toilet flushed. But these concerns were minor during our one night stay and I was satisfied with our choice.
