Verified guests have rated this hotel out of a possible score of 20

While New York’s got no shortage of very fine luxury hotels, what it hasn’t got is a surplus of hotels that are both stylish and affordable. The Freehand hotels are aimed at travelers with exceptional taste, not necessarily unlimited budgets — and in the Freehand New York they’ve succeeded where many an attempt has failed, thwarted by the daunting arithmetic of the Manhattan real-estate market.

The designers, Roman and Williams, are no strangers to the New York boutique-hotel scene. Here their eclectic, retro-inspired style turns what was once a humble residential hotel into something much livelier and more livable, with simple wooden furniture and unique artworks by Bard College students. While hostels, in the shared-bedroom sense, don’t exist in New York, the Freehand is the next best thing, adding three- and four-bed bunk rooms to the typical kings, queens, and suites.

Studio is the name of the Freehand’s all-day café and restaurant, a spot that’s equally well-suited for a working lunch or the beginnings of a night out — a night that probably includes a drink at the George Washington Bar, a cocktail bar that’s classic but unfussy. Comodo, meanwhile, is a pan-Latin restaurant from the team behind Brooklyn’s Colonia Verde, serving Mexican, Colombian, Peruvian, and Brazilian flavors interpreted from a New York point of view. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
