9.7 Excellent
Pros:NEARLY EVERYTHING

Cons:The bed was a little wonky

A
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The atmosphere at Freehand was excellent. Everything from the decor to the staff was super welcoming. I would stay there again.

Cons:The only downside we’re the rooms were a little small. I don’t mind small rooms but with two people it made it a little difficult to navigate around.

A
8.8 Great
Pros:Location is perfect. Down town close to all transportation. Price was reasonable. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating.

Cons:Window in room didn’t open and no air circulation.

A
8.0 Great
Pros:Great location - within walking distance of many attractions, like The House of Blue, Chicago Riverwalk, Magnificent Mile, and eateries. Also conveniently located for public transportation - within one block of the "L" System and close to many bus lines. Trendy - not your conventional décor. The tiles in the shower set it apart from molded walls in many hotels. Argan line of toiletries provided. Fitness Center - small but adequately equipped. Activities - we took advantage of the architectural tour which was informative. There were other interesting activities we would have joined but we didn't have the time.

Cons:Our room was tight. The queen bed pretty much took up the whole space. Not a lot of surface on which to put things. Small closet had only two hangers. My husband did not find the bed comfortable - the mattress was relatively thin and on a platform (instead of box spring).

A
7.4 Good
Pros:great location, very funky bar and set up on first floor, clean spaces and a fun experience with lots of young travelers visiting chicago so it has a great international feel to it. almost like a high end youth hostel in a way

Cons:got quite a bit of an attitude with first reception at desk... but next morning, a different person at front desk was terrific. free breakfast doesn't really include many options
