Hotel Cass, Holiday Inn Express Review

With cheerful rooms and nicely designed public spaces, the Hotel Cass is a true boutique hotel that bears little resemblance to more generic branches in the Holiday Inn chain. The crisp, white lobby is sparse and elegant, and the dramatic red hallway is offset with humor; several austere portraits of roosters. The rooms are simple and bright, with green headboards that nearly reach the ceiling. The subway-style tile in the bathroom harks back to the 1920s. The rooms are modern and warm, and the in-room artwork includes photos of 1950s fashion icons.

    Awsome video art in lobby!

    The lobby has a slow motion video art image of Chicago's skyline that is stunning! I love the atmosphere it imparts, very "Chicagoesque" Every time I saw it it was different! They said it was a Fluid Still by Doug?

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
