Located in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, Freehand Chicago is a hotel set in a building that originates from the 1920s. The area is known for its culture and art scene, so you'll be close enough to walk to theaters, playhouses, museums, and more.

These rooms are great for families or groups that are traveling together.

You can eat meals at Broken Shaker, which offers local specialties and a happy hour. There is also Cafe Integral that's open for breakfast and lunch, and also serves snacks. Other options that aren't far from Freehand Chicago include The Capital Grille, Steak 48, and Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken.
