Fits the Bill
Freehand was a perfectly nice hotel. It didn’t offer a lot of frills, and that’s why it’s also priced within reach, considering its surroundings. Years ago we stayed in a neighboring hotel, but would get coffee at Freehand so we were excited to check it out this trip. The lobby definitely is where their money was spent. It’s nice to enjoy a coffee downstairs while planning your day. There is nowhere to sit in your actual hotel room, and we had the “deluxe king” room. It’s small, but it’s a city hotel. Give and take. The bathroom was fine, probably could’ve used a little extra scrub, or some mildew killer, but was visibly clean, and did the job. The staff was pleasant, and the room was ready early, so for a long weekend trip away, it fit the bill.

I stayed at the Freehand for 3 nights while in town for a conference and had a great experience. My room was very warm, clean, and cozy, and the bed was really comfortable. There is a lot to do within walking distance in that area, including restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. The bar and café looked nice, but I had to leave early in the morning and was able to conveniently pick up a coffee at a café across the street ad something to eat at a grocery store, also across the street. There is also a Trader Joe's a couple of blocks away. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the price was reasonable. I would definitely stay there again. WiFi connection was excellent.
