8/10 Very Good

My one night stay
Only stayed the night but very nice. It would have been better if the curtains closed all the way so the city lights could be closed out. A key/lock for the lockers would be nice as I didn't know to bring my own lock. Parking was more than the room but I definitely needed it. 8/10 would recommend.

Its okay. Could be better!
Great location. But if you have a car, its not worth to park at Freehand. As they charge almost $55/night as a hotel guest, which is ridiculous.

You wanna be here!
I will definitely be back to this one! Love, love, LOVE it! I had a female quad the 1st night, a private room (due to work) the next 2 days, and a eight person co-ed the last night. Was awesome!

This hotel is not luxurious at all. It is not a 4-star hotel. Having a hostel in same facility creates a very unluxurious feel, and we very disappointed. The beds are very low to the ground, you can hear noise from outside clearly, and noise in the hall.

A great place to stay with great staff!
I stayed for a 2 night trip to Los Angles and I have to say that Freehand is a great place to stay. I did have a problem with a crazy person in my 8 dorm room but when I brought it up with the front desk they gave me another room based on availability, so defiantly hats off to the staff for helping resolve my issue. With that said the higher up rooms have some nice views depending on where your at in the building, the showers do have hot water. Would stay again as the staff and place are great for the price.
