Freehand Chicago Reviews Summary

UserChristopher
8/10
 
Very Good
Pros: I liked the vibe of the hotel the most - there was a very eclectic mix of guests staying there. It felt like everyone, no matter who they were, fit in.
Cons: I did not like that the gym was not useable during my stay there. I also did not like that both the lighting in my room and bathroom were very dim - one of the two areas should have bright lighting for applying makeup/getting ready.
UserVerified Hotel Guest
4/10
 
Disappointing
Pros: Location is key here. Down the street from Eataly and a ton of other restaurants.
Cons: This is NOT a hotel. This is a grown up hostel with little to any amenities. Free WiFi was probably the best thing about it. Had not stayed in a bunk bed since I was a kid and this was not a pleasant experience for an over 40 dad bod.
UserVerified Hotel Guest

Very Poor
Cons: After prepaying for the hotel, at checkout I then had to pay another "Urban Fee". I was not told about this in advance. I've never had to pay a 2nd hotel bill at checkout, either at this hotel or any other. This seems criminal.
UserMarilyn

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

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.

Very Good
Pros: Great staff. Everyone who helped me was kind, patient, and cared about my well being, even if it was simply to check me in or out.
Cons: The room was way too cold for February, the heat never came close to heating the room. A major problem was the window itself even though it was closed and locked was drafty.
UserMaria Cristina

Very Good
Pros: The hotel was a great location for where we needed to go in River North. It was about 2 or 3 blocks away from everything so we just walked where we needed to go. The other thing I liked was the cleanliness of the hotel.
Cons: The decor is a bit weird and the room was small. It reminded us of an European hotel.

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.

Very Poor
Pros: Location.
Cons: Terrible experience. Will never stay there again or recommend. Elbows hit the wall in bed and in shower. INCREDIBLY loud and rude guests. Liquor bottles everywhere in hallway when we left. Had to call front desk and security. Mgmt did nothing.

Very Good
Pros: Great staff. Everyone who helped me was kind, patient, and cared about my well being, even if it was simply to check me in or out.
Cons: The room was way too cold for February, the heat never came close to heating the room. A major problem was the window itself even though it was closed and locked was drafty.

Very Good
Pros: The hotel was a great location for where we needed to go in River North. It was about 2 or 3 blocks away from everything so we just walked where we needed to go. The other thing I liked was the cleanliness of the hotel.
Cons: The decor is a bit weird and the room was small. It reminded us of an European hotel.
