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.

We alerted the front desk as soon as we realized the air in the bedroom was not working. We were assured it would be fixed. It never was. We talked to the front desk over ten times during our stay. We were never offered a room change or even a fan. We payed over $2000 for our stay for a room with no working air. I was awful.

Hi epalmerwolff, I'm so sorry for the air-conditioning issue that you experienced and for the appalling way this was handled. We did indeed have a big issue over the weekend that affected some of our rooms and we're having the problem fixed as I type this response. Please give me a call so that we can straighten this bad experience out. Best, Paul Kashman 212.475.1920

The hotel is located on Lexington and 24th, near the subway station. It is very convenient, the room is mall though. The front desk was super nice and helpful. Be careful when sharing as the floor can be slipper.

The first time I stayed here a few years ago was great. The room was spacious, the amenities were good, as were the hotel bars and restaurants. This time around, the hotel was more expensive, and the amenities just weren't there. No housekeeping during covid, no water or cups in the room, no robes, tiny towels..all of that in a dark, tiny room with a low ceiling and courtyard views. All of the restaurants and bars at the hotel were closed, except for the Broken Shaker. The staff were unfriendly, and housekeeping were out in the halls having conversations on speakerphone, and jamming their carts in the walls and doors. Not worth the money.

Hi mpmpmpmpmpmpmpmp, Thank you for your review and I sincerely apologize that we failed to meet your expectations. While room sizes and exposures vary, and are based upon what category you actually booked, there is no excuse for rudeness or the absence of professionalism. Amenities are in the process of being reordered and our restaurants are being re-conceptualized as I type this response. It was a long cold winter for us, and we're ramping up all of our amenities and services to ensure there is added value to each and every night spent at our hotel. Please contact me directly when making your next reservation and I promise you that your feelings will no longer be mixed. Best, Paul Kashman
