I spent one night here recently, loved it and will definitely be back. The Freehand is in a great Iocation - close to the beach and only a 15 or 20 minute walk to the heart of South Beach! I stayed in a private quad room. It is very clean and the beds are amazingly comfortable! A little noisy during the wee hours of the morning, but that should be expected. The lobby area was comfortable with a Bohemian flair - I wasn't quite sure if I was in the US or perhaps in Zanzibar! The complimentary breakfast was adequate - coffee, juice and mini muffins and other pastries.The pool and garden area has a very cool vibe with twinkling lights, lanterns and plenty of comfortable seating. If boredom sets in, try ping pong or boule and there are also bikes to rent The Broken Shaker bar -- wow!!!! ---- although tiny in size, it is probably the coolest, most unique bar that I have ever been in - anywhere!!! Offerings include pretty wild takes on classic cocktails, daily punches (wonderful!) - mixology at its finest!! and a good beer list as well! The music was great and the staff was friendly and attentive, which brings me to my only complaint...the front desk staff needs some work...the majority of them are not very friendly - almost flippant with a touch of arrogance - lacking in good old fashioned customer service. Hopefully those issues will be resolved as the Freehand just opened, but the poor attitudes and service from a few staff members would not stop me from returning.
