Good 6.0
The hotel is trying for a funky vibe - sometimes though you just want the basics - like a glass in your room so you can get a drink of water!
Carolyn, au1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
This was my second stay at Freehand Chicago and it was a delight. The staff is so incredible, the bar/coffee shop/room service are all excellent, and the location can't be beat (especially at this price!). Can't wait to come back again!
Malori, us3 night trip
Fair 4.0
Not satisfied
The rooms are VERY small - I was not able to open my suitcase on the floor as the bed took up the majority of the room. There are no waters provided in the room nor is there a minifridge should you wish to provide cold drinks for yourself. Most of the rooms face the interior of the building or a carpark and because of this there is incessant noise. The air quality is poor as the buildings are old and there is no air extraction from the bathroom - I would not be surprised if there is mold. The rooms are claustrophobic to say the least. Some might say that the Freehand is a glorified hostel. Apparently "style" prevailed here...

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent choice in Chicago!
Perfect location, very clean and friendly staff!!!! Breakfast is pretty basic but plenty options around. I loved the bed (comfy and spotless) that is what you need after a busy day outside.
Silvia, mx2 night trip
Good 6.0
Nice but not for me
Room was nice and staff was friendly, but was not expecting to share a room with 3 strangers. Nice place to stay for families or friends, but not if you’re a recluse going solo.
