Artistic genes? Artful traits? The brand new Freehand New York hotel (open January 2018) near Madison Square Park, Gramercy Park and Bellevue South Park, exudes a wonderful vintage and artistic atmosphere, definitely your thing. Logical, if you know that this hotel used to be the base for many reputable writers and creators.
Like the brother in Chicago and the sister in Miami, this hotel has been refurbished by the design studio Roman & Williams. They managed to preserve the historic character of former George Washington, but topped it with hip sauce. A place where the modern traveler, who is young at heart, feels at home.
No uniforms in this hotel. All 395 rooms - decorated by students from the art academy of Bard College - are imaginative and feature special works of art. Add free WiFi and the unique room layout and you will soon realize the origins of its instant success.
Not only do the double rooms exist in different versions, the rooms for 3 and 4 people are nothing short of exhilarating in their particularity. Book the Three's company room. Here the third person sleeps in a bunk bed above the queen bed. Or go for the Bunk rooms, which are equipped with two bunk beds, plugs and reading lights. Ideal for an outing among friends.
Details: Cozy (17 m²) or Queen (20 m²) room with 1 queen bed (max 2 p.), Three's Company room with bunk bed (downstairs queen, upstairs 1 bed) (23 m² - max 3 p.) , Bunk room with 2 bunk beds (21 m² - max. 4 p.)
Find a quiet spot in the mezzanine, put your skills to the test in the game room or indulge in culinary delights in Simon & The Whale of Studio. Feel like letting your hair down? Head to the former library which has been transformed into the George Washington Bar. If you know you can also shop at the hotel there's only one truth left to face: Freehand New York is the ideal starting point to write your story from in The Big Apple.
