Once known as the Tokyo Hotel, Freehand Chicago opened it's doors as a fusion between a hotel and a hostel. If unpretinous and chic had a baby that was a hotel, it'd be the Freehand. The rustic, Moroccan-style, lobby adds to the vibe of Freehand Chicago. This same aesthetic spills over into the rooms. All thanks to the same duo who designed the Chicago Athletic Association, Roman and Williams. Below the lobby there's laundry facilities and and even a kitchen guest can use, staying true to fusion between hotel and hostel.

If you want a great cocktail, but have on your favorite weekend t-shirt the Broken Shaker in the lobby is the perfect place to grab a drink. A bit of Miami and a nod to its past as the Tokyo Hotel paint the walls throughout the bar.
