Nice hotel, great location but the room was pretty small
Bob, us1 night business trip
Good 6.0
So so
Hotel was probably better to stay at before Covid. No housekeeping service at all. Had to inquire why at the desk and then asked if we needed towels. Very small room and ours was a city view queen. Bathroom was cute, but so small you couldn't turn around. 2 places only open to eat. No one wore name tags. Day people were pleasant and smiled. Night person was not very friendly. Room would be good for one person. On 17th floor and traffic noise still kept us awake. So noisy, thought the bathroom window was open.

Perfect Solo Stay
Easy check in, nice roof top. Small room expected in NYC.
Mega, us1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Nice place!
The room was spotless, cute, and comfortable. My only small issue was putting people in adjoining rooms during a time that there are so few guests. I understand you can't have them spread out completely, but next door? Not necessary and I had a super noisy person next to me. Other than that it was a nice respite from my apartment. The building is being worked on and it's noisy and dusty.

Everything was great. Apart from the bottle of water, said it was free, but didn’t have any bottle at the room.

I love this place. My new home away from home. The room is nicely appointed and the staff is very accommodating.

Very Good 8.0
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I expected ammenities to be limited, but they seemed a bit too limited in my opinion. The room was not bad by any means, but the images provided by the website were quite deceptive and mislead me to believe that the room would be much larger then it actually was. While I did enjoy my stay and do not hold anything against the staff, who were all very helpful and polite, I would not opt to stay at this hotel again.

Really enjoyed our short stay at freehand. Front desk personal went above and beyond.. I believe his name was Parker brought overall great energy during quarantine pandemic times.
