    Cheap Small Room

    The room was extremely small with a very low profile bed, which was very close to the floor. Further, the room was so small you could not walk around the bed, because it was placed in a very tight space, close to the wall on three sides. The furniture in the room looked like it belonged in a cabin, not a luxury room. Room was overpriced for what it was.

    Pool is for Restaurant guests, not hotel guests

    I booked at this hotel ONLY because i love their pool in the pics... well you need to make reservations in order to go to the pool, its a rooftop bar so there were NONE available spots anymore, I was able to grab one for Sunday, cuz Saturday which I originally planned to be all day in the pool I couldn’t be there not even a minute 😒, and when i got there they told me its a minimum of $35 pr person PLUS you can stay there 2hours MAX!!!!! WTH! Save this hassle and stay somewhere else I forgot to mention pool is extra small, freezing cold, and the worst thing is that all the reservations were for outside people, so doesn’t even matter if you are a hotel guest or not, I couldn’t get in on Saturday

    GREAT FIRST TIME EXPERIENCE

    This was my first time using Hotels.com app as well as staying at the Freehand hotel. Both experiences were EFFORTLESS! I appreciate all the friendly staff. This was also my first hostel stay, and I'm very pleased about.they were still covid conscious so it was only me and one other girl. The rooms were clean. Nice views. Definitely going back again! Thanks

    Great service and location

    The one at the front desk (I forgot his name now) but he was super friendly when i arrived. The room was decent sized and had a little fridge and a huge TV. The location is really good. Plenty places to eat and there is a Whole Foods, CVS, and Dunkin Donuts on the next block.

    Not very friendly

    Hotel doesn’t provide parking, for the price I found that an inconvenience and the room very small.

    Too expensive, too costly--TOO MANY EXTRA FEES!

    Actually, never got past the check in! Upon arrival, they once again couldn't find my reservation! Then started adding fees, deposits on everything ($55.00/key deposit, $200.00/extra fees in case of using any services, $100.00/pet deposit--my support animals!) Outrageous!!! Talk about price gouging! Will never ever stay here!

    Everything was good. I didn't like that I had to put down my mask indoors to verify who I was. Do that step outside the doors next time please.

    Love the location and everything that is at walking distance. Hotel was a bit dark but it part of the vibe in my opinion and it was very clean with friendly front desk staff.
