Fabulous 8.8 From 647 reviews

Very good 8.0
Handy location / cool look / few frustrations
We stayed for five nights in NY at the Freehand. The location is very handy for getting all over NY but not the coolest location. If I went back I would try and stay more lower Manhattan area. The hotel was nice and clean and has a cool look to it however a few things were a little annoying- the bathroom is tiny which is fine but there is not much of a shelf to put your own toiletries on so by the time you put you things in there it’s a bit of a mess! Could be solved with one or two extra shelves! Also no tea or coffee facilities in the rooms. On the info card it said we could request a nespresso machine but when we did they said they had none left. You couldn’t then get a hot drink from Downstairs until 8am. We were up early a lot and found this frustrating esp as one of us caught a bit of a sore throat when away and a hot drink would have helped a bit. The cafe and bars attached to the hotel are all pretty cool but the upstairs roof terrace bar is popular with the general public and therefore rammed! We tried to get a drink but it was way too busy.

Got a terrible room first, there was a brick wall right outside the window. Talked to staff but they said all rooms in that category would be the same. I asked for another room and they made me pay for the upgrade. The new room was nicer although the bathroom was tiny.
