The FOUND Hotel in Chicago takes the classic shared room and private room models and modernizes it to a new frontier of communal hospitality experience

The FOUND provides social travelers with the freedom and programming to explore, enjoy new friends and create long-lasting memories… and do so affordably

The location in Chicago’s River North neighborhood will serve as the FOUND flagship and boasts access to a food and beverage program curated by The h.wood Group. This includes a new contemporary-American steakhouse restaurant concept, Mason, as well as a refined coffee bar experience, Mason+Mason. Additionally, FOUND Chicago will be paying homage to Los Angeles’ renowned karaoke bar and lounge, Blind Dragon, featured in the hotel’s speakeasy styled basement. Lew Wolff of FOUND Hotels says, “This is our first venture into a shared room, hotel concept appealing specifically to the aspirational traveler and millennial nomad, that we felt was lacking from a hospitality standpoint across the U.S. We are thrilled about our new partnership with The h.wood Group and are proud to introduce this innovative endeavor to worldwide travelers.” Wolff is Co-Founder of the Maritz-Wolff hotel and resort firm and Chairman Emeritus of the Oakland Athletics MLB team. Chicago is the first of several FOUND Hotels set to debut in Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more in 2018-2019. Each centrally located hotel will offer an assortment of economical shared and traditional private accommodations and amenities that take distinctive cues from the best of what each city has to offer. FOUND Chicago is the city’s newest hotel concept, located at 613 N. Wells St. in the River North entertainment and dining district – Chicago’s attractive lifestyle location within walking distance to downtown and the Magnificent Mile.  At the Hotel you can find gratifying espresso at Mason+Mason coffee bar, a great martini at Mason restaurant, and can top it all off with some fun singing at the “secretive” Blind Dragon karaoke lounge.  With these unique activities, you will never have to leave the hotel; however, when you want to venture out, you can utilize the personal concierge service offered exclusively to hotel guests.
