Rich in culture, history, and economics, Chicago has much to offer tourists and business travelers alike. Shop the Magnificent Mile, catch a game at Wrigley Field, tour beautiful parks, and take in all the sights and sounds of the city while walking the well-maintained city avenues. Chicago is the Midwest's largest and busiest city and part of one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the United States. With this distinction come a large number of excellent and affordable Chicago hotels to choose from. The Cass Hotel Chicago is a top choice among money-wise visitors looking for an air of distinction with an affordable price tag.
A newer member on the growing list of Chicago boutique hotels, the Cass Hotel is located in downtown Chicago on North Wabash Avenue, only two blocks from Michigan Avenue and not far from Chicago's famous Riverwalk, Navy Pier, and Willis Tower. Its client base is growing as more people realize the many advantages of this location. Away from the immediate bustle of Michigan Avenue yet close enough for guests to enjoy all the best of the area, the well-priced rooms reflect just one of the many benefits of staying at the Cass Hotel Chicago.
Once a bare-bones, simple hotel, a 2007 renovation placed the little-known hotel on the map and turned it into a stylish, hip hotel drawing in a fashionable clientele. Most guests find it hard to believe that the long version of this hotel's name is indeed Hotel Cass Holiday Inn. Don't judge it by the name, however, because the Hotel Cass can outdo any of the large chain's other Holiday Inn hotels by miles in class, services, amenities, and location.
This Cass Hotel Holiday Inn Express property has won rave reviews for a wealth of reasons, beginning with its appearance. Contemporary furnishings, modern artwork, gleaming wood floors, and lively splashes of color illustrate an appealing, state-of-the-art design that's easy on the eyes. The stately building housing the Hotel Cass Holiday Inn dates from the early 1920s, giving it a historic feel with all the modern amenities. Although dining options are limited at the Cass Hotel Chicago, the adjacent River North district more than makes up for it, with scores of restaurants of every type serving up some of most acclaimed meals in the city.
Guest rooms and suites alone are impressive for their ultra-modern amenities such as mp3-dock radios, complimentary wireless internet, and wall-hung flat-screen TVs flanked by armless sofas that maximize the smaller room sizes, a staple blueprint in many historic hotels. Large lamps are poised over bright-green headboards while pristine white duvets provide ample contrast to the colorful linens covering beds. Inside the bathrooms Kohler bath hardware gives off an upscale feel while simple art and colorful adornments finish the spaces perfectly. These rooms are ideal for unwinding after a long day touring attractions such as the Chicago History Museum, Adler Planetarium, Grant Park, and Oak Street Beach.
Although the hotel reveals all kinds of memorable qualities, it is the surrounding city sights that are the true star here.
