UserWilliam
3/10
 
Poor
Pros: Location
Cons: The room was miniscule. The king bed took up the ENTIRE room. The mattress was either very old or of extremely poor quality. The platform for the mattress was only inches off the floor.

Cons: Small rooms, no proper window in our room, bathrooms don’t have exhaust, lounge area was a bit dirty
UserGinger
10/10
 
Exceptional
Pros: Close to all public transportation, Michigan avenue, many stores and restaurants
Cons: I did not care for the bed. It was very very low to the floor and a bit difficult to get out of. However for the younger folks - sure it would be fine. Also very dark in the rooms. No view at all.
UserGeoffrey
5/10
 
Fair
Pros: Parking was good.
Cons: Tiny rooms. They also have shared rooms during a pandemic, Thats insane!
UserMarilyn
1/10
 
Very Poor
Pros: Nothing at all.
Cons: This place was horrible from the staff to the room. The room was cold and the heater wasn't working properly. The hotel gave me a desktop portable heater. They didn't change the sheets because they said they do it every three days. The rooms are small
UserCatherine

Very Good
Pros: Location.
Cons: This is a Hostel. Not so much a Hotel. If you are in your 20’s-30’s it’s Cool Trendy. But as a 60 plus year old. Please Emphasize that this is a Hostel!!.
UserKeith
10/10
 
Exceptional
Pros: Perfect! Right in the middle of Chicago with easy access to the metro system and walking distance to the Magnificent mile. I received a great room for 1/4th the cost of other hotels in the area. The staff was great. Thanks for the stay

Wonderful
Pros: Great staff, very helpful. Great location handy to CTA, Michigan Ave, stores, stores, stores & large variety of restaurants. Really good TV (size & many channels to watch). Really nice bathroom, nice tiles & strong water pressure in shower.

Poor
Pros: Location
Cons: This was not what I expected it was more like a hostel than a hotel. No room cleaning, bunk beds were awful. No tv no phone in room. Very dusty/ unclean.

Cons: receptions staff
UserHeather
10/10
 
Exceptional
Pros: The laidback but professional atmosphere. Rooms were small but so cute!
UserRuss
1/10
 
Very Poor
Pros: This is a Hostel not a Hotel. Travelers expect the norm from any hotel room regardless of start level such as TV, desk, and reasonable space to manuever. Putting poeple in a room with bunkbeds, no tv, no desk, no couch other than a small bench. Bait & Swi
Cons: Everything. It should not be advertised as a hotel and/or you should make it blatently obvious what you're buying becasue its drastically different than a normal hotel room regardless of star level
UserAdrienne

UserVerified Hotel Guest

Pleasant
Pros: The location near Michigan Ave and Rush St. was great.
Cons: Considering the fact that the Hyatt was one of the hotels that we could have supposedly gotten, the Freehand was definitely not in that class. The location was good, the hotel was clean but the rooms were very small, didn't even have a chair to sit on.

UserVerified Hotel Guest

Wonderful
Pros: very cool vibe and decor - the hotel bar is pretty sweet. The location is perfect for walking everywhere and accessing a lot. Room was small but perfect for one person on a short trip that needed a place to sleep. Also - love the snacks in the room!
Cons: Parking could be a little better (with validations for next door garage?) for those that do not want to do valet parking. And the workers on the scaffold outside my room at 7am wasn't very cool but I understand improvements must happen..

Very Poor
Pros: Close to other activities
Cons: It was like camping. The bed was literally on the floor. There was no other seating available in the room other than the bed. The door would not shut properly. We had to shove it shut each time to completely close it. Did not like the club atmosphere

Pros: Close to all public transportation, Michigan avenue, many stores and restaurants
Cons: I did not care for the bed. It was very very low to the floor and a bit difficult to get out of. However for the younger folks - sure it would be fine. Also very dark in the rooms. No view at all.

Very Poor
Pros: Nothing at all.
Cons: This place was horrible from the staff to the room. The room was cold and the heater wasn't working properly. The hotel gave me a desktop portable heater. They didn't change the sheets because they said they do it every three days. The rooms are small

Pros: Location.
Cons: This is a Hostel. Not so much a Hotel. If you are in your 20’s-30’s it’s Cool Trendy. But as a 60 plus year old. Please Emphasize that this is a Hostel!!.

Pros: Perfect! Right in the middle of Chicago with easy access to the metro system and walking distance to the Magnificent mile. I received a great room for 1/4th the cost of other hotels in the area. The staff was great. Thanks for the stay

Pros: This is a Hostel not a Hotel. Travelers expect the norm from any hotel room regardless of start level such as TV, desk, and reasonable space to manuever. Putting poeple in a room with bunkbeds, no tv, no desk, no couch other than a small bench. Bait & Swi
Cons: Everything. It should not be advertised as a hotel and/or you should make it blatently obvious what you're buying becasue its drastically different than a normal hotel room regardless of star level

Pleasant
Pros: The location near Michigan Ave and Rush St. was great.
Cons: Considering the fact that the Hyatt was one of the hotels that we could have supposedly gotten, the Freehand was definitely not in that class. The location was good, the hotel was clean but the rooms were very small, didn't even have a chair to sit on.

Wonderful
Pros: very cool vibe and decor - the hotel bar is pretty sweet. The location is perfect for walking everywhere and accessing a lot. Room was small but perfect for one person on a short trip that needed a place to sleep. Also - love the snacks in the room!
Cons: Parking could be a little better (with validations for next door garage?) for those that do not want to do valet parking. And the workers on the scaffold outside my room at 7am wasn't very cool but I understand improvements must happen..

Very Poor
Pros: Close to other activities
Cons: It was like camping. The bed was literally on the floor. There was no other seating available in the room other than the bed. The door would not shut properly. We had to shove it shut each time to completely close it. Did not like the club atmosphere
