All roads lead to Chicago

A travel blog entry by prathiba

This city has the most amazing architecture. Each building is unique and has lots of detail. One can easily spend 30 min, looking at the each structure.

I loved the vibe in Chicago. However, I noticed that there were a lot of beggars in Chicago.

Went to Devon street (Indian area in Chicago) as suggested by a friend. Alas most of …

Jet lag isn't too bad I have discovered that no matter where I am and what timezone, I don't do mornings. I was however up bright and early for breakfast and am feeling rather more chipper for the couple of cups of coffee I've had since then.

The day is rather grey and dreary so I'm not too sure what I'll end up doing. There is the worlds …

Oklahoma - Chicago

A travel blog entry by erkkiat


Olen tankkaillut autoa ja maksanut hotellihuoneet ja kaiken muunkin mahdollisen käteisellä, mutta käteisellä tankatessa täytyy maksaa etukäteen. Täytinkin siksi nyt tankin luottokortilla ja maksaminen sujui jouheasti. Lentokentälle suunnistaminen, auton palauttaminen, check-inn ja turvatarkastus sujuivat ongelmitta ja löysin jopa portin lähelt …

Back to The Windy City!

A travel blog entry by pjnedry


We arrived in Chicago close to on time! Quite the feat given that we were almost two hours late early in the trip!

We got our bags and made the long walk to the interior of Union Station, then flagged a cab with no wait, and on the to the hotel--a Holiday Inn Express, that is really the old Cass Hotel with a new badge. This is an older …

Jazzy blues in the "Windy City" of Chi-town!

A travel blog entry by kaydeetravels



We made it to the ‘Windy City’ on Sunday evening after a 3-hour flight from ‘Vegas‘ to ‘O’Hare,’ and 2 CTA trains to our hotel in downtown Chicago. Now in the state of Illinois we lost 2-hours of our day and were welcomed into the city with minus conditions (a.k.a. ridiculously freezing …

    Old Hotel and Service to Match!

    This is the old Cass Hotel--opened many years ago when the room prices were $2! The rooms have been upgraded, but they are very small, typical of older properties.

    The biggest problem was the door frame. The door was wedged tightly upon opening and closing. It had to be pushed and pulled on opening and closing.

    There was no quick fix for this; but after getting to the right person, there was an adjustment made on the bill. The location is convenient--2 blocks from Michigan Avenue and lots of restaurants in the area.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cass, a Holiday Inn Express Chicago

    Bare, but sufficient


    the cass hotel was just what i expected for the price. it was a mere $64/night during late june. it's basically just a place to sleep, there's no pampering or perks. the only anemity it does have is cable television. the room and bathroom are small, but decently clean. tiny soap bars are provided. the best thing about this hotel would have to be it's central downtown location.

    Good Hotel and Great value


    We stayed two nights while sightseeing and attending two baseball games. All public transportation within 3-4 blocks, good restuarants close by, and good shopping in area. Hotel is older but very ciean and staff is very polite and hepfull. Parking garage is next door.

    Outstanding Value


    We have stayed at the Cass Hotel seven times over past six years. It is very clean and staff is friendly and responsive. Location in North Bridge area off Magnificent Mile, great restaurants, "L" stations and can't be beat for the price. Highly recommended.

    Had a great month


    exellent room rates; During my stay in dic. 2002 for the German Christkindlmarket I always were attended professional and friendly, housekeeping and mantainance are welltrained and help in any situation quickly. the only negativ point are the high telefoncosts even for internetconnection they are charging high prices. Nervertheless a very nice place to stay, I will be back this year for another month!

    Good Deal, Good Location


    I have stayed in this hotel twice, I was sorry to hear this hotel has no availability on my upcoming trip to Chircago. This is a plain simple hotel, but is close to alot of great attractions, restaurants and shopping. Beware, there were no washcloths at either of my visit, so if you need one to bathe, you might want to bring your own

    Clean, Cheap, Great Location


    This hotel is great - cheap (we found an amazing deal on their website during a very busy weekend) and were even upgraded to a king size bed which I had requested at no charge. On the small side, but the room was clean and adequate for our needs. Also the location is amazing - near everything and there is an El stop only a few blocks away.

    Affordable, good location!


    Rooms were very clean. Good atmosphere. Within walking distance of lots of attractions, restaurants, Navy Pier. Better than I expected!

    Clean place


    this is my second time stayin there and i love is and will be back soon. if your lookin for reasonable room rate well the cass hotel is the place.

    Cheap, plain, good


    Me, my Wife and 2 Children (ages 6 and 10) stayed here.

    Very simple room, but fine for us. The room had 2 double

    beds and wasn't big but was big enough considering we weren't doing anything but sleeping there. The location,

    write in the middle of the madly developing "Miracle Mile"

    district in Chicago, was great. Easy access to the El. Other guests seemed to be international youth backpakers,

    international low budget businesspeople, and bargain hunter


    The best places


    I went to the cass hotel and,I like what i saw clean room good house keeping friendly people and the sea of happiness lounge is wonderful. I enjoin myself and i goin back soon.
