About this area

Chicago

Located near the beach, Freehand Chicago is in Chicago's River North neighbourhood, an area with good shopping. Chicago Riverwalk and Navy Pier are notable landmarks, and travellers looking to shop may want to visit State Street and Michigan Avenue. Check out an event or a game at Soldier Field, and consider making time for Lincoln Park Zoo, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests love the hotel's location for the sightseeing. It's also convenient for public transport: Grand Station (Red Line) is just steps away and Chicago Station (Red Line) is 6 minutes by foot.
