Hotel Description

While New York’s got no shortage of very fine luxury hotels, what it hasn’t got is a surplus of hotels that are both stylish and affordable. The Freehand hotels are aimed at travelers with exceptional taste, not necessarily unlimited budgets — and in the Freehand New York they’ve succeeded where many an attempt has failed, thwarted by the daunting arithmetic of the Manhattan real-estate market.

The designers, Roman and Williams, are no strangers to the New York boutique-hotel scene. Here their eclectic, retro-inspired style turns what was once a humble residential hotel into something much livelier and more livable, with simple wooden furniture and unique artworks by Bard College students. While hostels, in the shared-bedroom sense, don’t exist in New York, the Freehand is the next best thing, adding three- and four-bed bunk rooms to the typical kings, queens, and suites.

Studio is the name of the Freehand’s all-day café and restaurant, a spot that’s equally well-suited for a working lunch or the beginnings of a night out — a night that probably includes a drink at the George Washington Bar, a cocktail bar that’s classic but unfussy. There’s more to come — the Freehand spans a city block — but it’s fair to say they’re off to an impressive start indeed.
