According to the listing, this is “the preferred Chicago property of Airbnb founder and CEO, Brian Chesky.”

Sure, you could book a bunk at the Freehand, but if you've got some extra scratch, why not rent out the penthouse suite? There are enough beds to accommodate six guests in this tastefully-decorated suite, which feels more like a picturesque apartment than a hotel room. Naturally, you'll also enjoy all of the Freehand's amenities, including access to the Broken Shaker cocktail bar and Cafe Integral coffee house.
Extravagant home in Gold Coast

Renovated church in Logan Square
Embrace the open floor plan of this converted church, which has been painstakingly renovated into a three-bedroom home complete with a loft, a bar and a fireplace where the altar once stood.

Well-appointed home in Noble Square
The owners of this Noble Square home poured nearly half a million dollars into its renovation, transforming the 1890s-era building into one of the most well-appointed rentals in town.

Picturesque escape in Wicker Park
