Top 10 Value Hotels
Freehand’s stylish rooms make this one of the best value options in the Windy City.
The hipster Freehand resides in a traditional 16-story River North building that dates back to 1927, close to many iconic Chicago destinations including the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier. This brand is far from your average crunchy granola hostel; Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors reinvented the former Tokyo Hotel space with clever design and comfortable amenities to create a unique experience that offers both private rooms and dorm-style shared accommodations with wooden bunks. With 250 beds in total, the cozy digs are punctuated with pops of color and rich wood armoires. On-site, the Broken Shaker is prime territory for happy hour refreshment and light bites. There’s also a communal kitchen available for visitors who prefer to save money by whipping up their own meals any time of the day or night. Free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast are included in the rates.

Another vodka. Another rum. Another bourbon. Yet another vodka. Things can get monotonous in the spirit world, as there are so many different brands, but so few types of base spirits. Every once in a while a VeeV comes along to break the tedium, but it's rare for a spirit to stray far from its predecessors.
