    I loved the rustic atmosphere in the lobby. The valets and doorman were friendly and very hardworking. The front desk staff were efficient and friendly; they worked really well together the doormen. The bathroom in my room was immaculate. Gorgeous tiles. Really good workmanship. My room was spotless. I really appreciated being able to open the windows a bit for ventilation. So many properties are "sealed" tight with air handling systems.

    I think it would be great if there was a filtered water system available somewhere in the building so we could just refill our water bottles.

    This is my second time at the freehand and I love it. Everything about it is great. From the location to the environment, I loved it.

    The only down fall is that there’s no locks on the bathrooms in the shared rooms, so if you’re in there anyone can walk in.

    Very comfy. Relaxing vibe.

    Bartender wouldn’t give mea glass of ice. I was asking because there were no ice machines. No clock, microwave or coffee maker.
