ehhh
Overall it was ok, for the price that we paid I would expect a much nicer place. Rooms are small, outdated and NOT what is pictured.

Of you like hostel style hotels. Otherwise don't.
First off. I must say this hotel for someone under 30 is ideal. It's a hostel style cool hip spot. If you are not a hostel style person and want a chic room with amenities and space this is not the place. I booked a deluxe king room that was private. I assumed it would be met with some luxuries but I was wrong. The hotel has no valet you have to self park in a bed bath beyond parking lot across the street for 45 a night and schlep your luggage over to the hotel. No one cares to help you at any point in this hotel. When I got to my room I asked for a cup for water as they provide no amenities in their room no cups no fridge no mini bar. They have a basement kitchen which looks like a horrible college dorm kitchen where they told me to go get my own cup and water as they wouldn't bring it to my room. So that was also a miss. After that I went to this basement the next morning for the breakfast they provided where there was cereal and sadness on offer for breakfast. It was absolutely sad to see how cheap it was. But alas if youre in a hostel this would probably be acceptable. It was however not for me. The bathroom was tiny and there was barely any room to place my luggage. This hotel is not for a business traveler it is for the kids who are hip. Just a note to everyone looking for a good place like the ace it is not that. It is a good cheap version with not much identity and staff who seem to not want to be there.

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!
