About Urban Holiday Lofts

At Urban Holiday Lofts, we know the best vacations aren’t the ones where you only follow travel guides, but ones where you veer from the most traveled path, take a few suggestions from the locals, and allow the openness to the unknown be your guide.

The story of Urban Holiday Lofts begins with an authentic ramshackle 120-year old drum factory located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. After years of disuse, the building was restored and reimagined as a place for people.

Inside the rooms, you’ll find exposed brick, salvaged wood, handcrafted steel, as a nod to our buildings industrial past, juxtaposed with comfortable beds, soft white linen, towels, pillows, keyless security door locks, and free WiFi as a nod to our modern present. Guests can book either a private room with a private bathroom, a private room with a shared bathroom, or a bed in one of our dorms (guests must be at least 18 to stay in the dorm).

Never forfeiting service or convenience for the sake of status or over-the-top luxury, we pride ourselves on knowing the best local pizzeria, the most delicious hot dog, where to get a coffee or craft beer and catch the Bulls game. We have no curfew, so you can come and go as you like. And when you are here, take advantage of complimentary breakfast, full kitchen, laundry, 24-hour luggage storage, complimentary maps and guides, computer center, and if you need anything, our staff is on site 24-hours/day to help.

Around the neighborhood, you’ll find the best concentration of restaurants, bars, shopping, nightlife, and live music venues in Chicago. You’ll also find a 3.5-mile long elevated inner-city trail, known as the 606, that allows urban explorers to traverse western Chicago, from atop an elevated vantage.

We are native Chicagoans who love our city and enjoy sharing our knowledge and enthusiasm on to our guests.

**Taxes of 16.4% will be added to the listed room rate. **

Our guest license number is 2146330.
