The latest Freehand has recently opened in NYC’s Flatiron neighborhood. It will take over the former George Washington Hotel, which has a history as a home for creatives. That legacy will live on in The Freehand Fellowship: the hotel is launching a program in partnership with Live Arts Bard of Bard College, where selected artists will get the chance to live and work at the property and play an active part in its arts and cultural program. As with all Freehands, food and beverage is of the utmost importance. The restaurant and lobby bar here will be headed by West Village restaurateur Gabriel Stulman’s Happy Cooking Hospitality. Freehand New York will also get an outpost of Noho café, The Smile, and of course, a Broken Shaker bar.

Great location, close to MTA, close proximity to restaurants, friendly service, very clean and cozy atmosphere. Though the restaurant and bars were closed in the hotel when we stayed, we still enjoyed staying at the Freehand due to the cleanliness and location. Thanks guys!

I truly enjoyed my stay. During the pandemic, hotel stays are unusual - Freehand was convenient and professional. The room and location met my needs. The staff were excellent. I wish I had been able to explore bar and restaurant. Will definitely stay again.
