The Hollander is one of Chicago’s top-rated hostels/hotels, located in Chicago's trendy Wicker Park neighborhood.

It’s just steps away from the Damen Blue Line 'L' stop for ultimate convenience (to O'Hare airport and downtown), and a meeting place for travelers, with plenty of options for added privacy and comfort.

As summer rolls around, the reason for this flowery nickname is evident: everywhere you turn, you'll see gardens big and small, in our backyards, on our parkways, even on our balconies and rooftops! If you want an intimate peek into the lovely gardens that shape our city, check out these celebrated summer garden walks.
