The space calls back to the 1850s, when Fieldhouses like this once popped up in the city’s Parkside district to give Chicagoans a place to socialize during the harsh winters.
The hostel overlooks a private park and is near to the Freedom Wall and the Chicago “L” train that can have you at most of the city’s major tourist destinations quickly and easily.
The rooms range from private single beds in dorm-style rooms up to multi-bedroom apartments with full kitchens for families or larger groups to stay in.
There is a café on site where you can get third wave coffee, specialty drinks, and diner-style food at any time.
At The Chicago Hotel Collection River North Mag Mile there are numerous places where you can relax after a day of sightseeing such as the gym, coffee bar, basement game room, and janitor’s closet-turned-speakeasy.
