Stayed here because I always liked the Freehand in LA, but my room was 3 feet from the elevator so was awoken in the night and by 7am each morning from people getting on/off, and just annoyed by the constant dinging. Also the room was like a college dorm, dark and tiny and there's just a bed. My shower was out of body soap and they never replaced it. They don't provide coffee or lotion. Was just expecting more for 400/night.

Small, comfortable hotel with a nice vibe in a good location. The coffee shop downstairs and upstairs bar were convenient and enjoyable.

The hotel is what it is, small, affordable and within midtown. I would stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was worried the smallest, single bed room would feel awful but it was great, everything one person (6' tall with a couple small bags) needs to sleep, bathe, be comfy. The staff is great and all the connected dining areas are lovely.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The main issue I had with this property was that we had a room facing one of the roads and it was very loud. It seemed like the windows are really old and it felt like sound was going right through the windows. Otherwise, it was great. The hotel itself looks nice and I like the aesthetics. Our sink had a leak but they fixed it almost immediately. The service there is great and the people are great. I bet if you had an inside room that there may not be the noise issue. I do know that to some extent this is inherent in New York but I did think this was worse than expected.
