    The Freehand New York is AMAZING. Excellent vibes the entire time! There are 5 restaurants and bars on site so there's no need to leave. My Girlfriend and I stayed in a private room (that’s all they offer in NYC) for a little staycation. We dined at Simon & the Whale, where we had one of the best meals of our lives, then went to the George Washington bar for a nightcap before heading off to our amazing room. The staff were extremely helpful & genuine. Thank you Freehand New York!

    I LOVED my stay at the Freehand in New York. I had stayed at the one in Miami before. On this trip, we booked a private room. The room was so cute and the bed so comfortable! We were only there for one night so we did not get to experience all the restaurants and bars but we had breakfast at Studio, the café on the second floor and it was amazing (the baker is amazing by the way!). I hear they’re opening Broken Shaker on the rooftop soon (same cocktail bar as at Freehand Miami). A great stay all

    I really liked Freehand NY. I felt safe and comfortable in the hotel thanks to the staffed lobby and well designed room layout. I was in a single room which was very small but made the most of the space available. I appreciated having this option rather than having to pay for a double room as a solo guest. Guests should note that the taxes and service charges do add up although I still felt that my room was reasonably good value for money. Cafe and bar in the hotel very cool and a nice treat!

    The bar is great but expensive. The staff are really friendly. The location is great and close to the subway. The rooms are quiet and spacious. The only worry I had was that people going up the elevator to the bar also had access to the room levels.
