With interiors designed by French studios Ciguë and Delordinaire, The Hollander offers both private and shared rooms within a five-storey 1905 building in the city’s Wicker Park neighbourhood. It is positioned directly over the Damen station on the L Metro line, which connects O’Hare Airport with Downtown Chicago.
Operated by Grupo Habita, the hotel is the first to facilitate the Mexican company’s Social Stay programme that allows guests to connect on Instagram ahead of arrival.
“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,” said the group.
Delordinaire was founded in 2015 by architects Adrian Hunfalvay from Australia, Erwan Lêveque from France and Jean Philippe Parent from Canada, and has offices in both Paris and Montreal.
The firm also recently completed a small winter cabin raised on stilts above the Quebec countryside.
