About Freehand Chicago, Chicago

Value for money

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.

This Art Deco hotel includes a restaurant and bar on the premises. You'll have a fitness center where you can work out around the clock. You'll also find a snack bar, a comfortable common area with a fireplace, and a staff that speaks six different languages.

Freehand Chicago has 215 rooms spread over 17 floors. You'll have your choice of queen, king, quad, or penthouse rooms. There are also accessible rooms available if needed. The penthouse is actually a duplex. It has two bedrooms and high cathedral ceilings. There is a living room, a large flat-screen TV, and an oversized bathroom in each. 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.
