Located in the vibrant Wicker Park and Bucktown neighbourhoods between downtown Chicago’s Loop and Logan Square, The Hollander sits in the historic 1905 five-story brick Hollander Fireproof Warehouse adjacent to its sister property, The Robey.

This high-design Social Stay from French design studios Ciguë and Delordinaire is equipped with 66 beds, including 12 private rooms, a café serving freshly brewed coffee, personal lockers, ground floor laundry facilities and an onsite bike rental and repair shop.

The Hollander, developed by Chicago-based Convexity Properties and operated by Grupo Habita, is the home of the first-ever Social Stay, where guests will be able to engage and connect with each other prior to their visit through Instagram. The Hollander’s integration with social media forges a community where the most-digitally connected travellers can meet and share their adventures during their stay.

The Hollander lies at the intersection of Damen, Milwaukee and North Avenues where two communities merge into one of the city’s creative epicenters. Perched directly atop the city’s famed “L” train, The Hollander serves as a gateway to galleries, cafés, studios, independent boutiques and live music venues.

During the day, stroll along The 606, an elevated train track-turned-greenway, and discover local hangouts and storied architectural gems alike; at night, experience the city’s hottest nightlife for music and live entertainment. With its bohemian character evolving from its proud industrial roots, a Social Stay at The Hollander allows visitors to connect in new ways in this modern age of the shared economy.
