Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very comfortable and the room was very nice and tidy, very modernish as well. The only problem I had was that the windows were too thin and you can hear literally everything outside especially if on the second floor. But besides that 10/10 hotel experience. I wish the roof top bar had better cocktails, maybe a Cuban styled spot up there would be a good idea?

Pros: As someone who hasn't been to LA before and didn't have a car, this was a great hotel to stay at geographically! Lyft was only 30ish minutes there from the airport. There's a Starbucks right next door to the Freehand, and plenty of local coffee shops too. There was a CVS as well, and tons of local food places. The area was very walkable and felt safe. The room was beautiful and large as well - totally want to get a lower bed frame now! Huge toiletries in the bathroom too which was a plus. I loved the enormous room windows too! The lobby is gorgeous. I was also able to check in a bit early, but thankfully the concierge was willing to watch my bags until then so I could explore the area a bit while waiting for an early room to open up. Check out was a breeze too! Cons: I wasn't thrilled to have an unexpected deposit and resort (?) fee to pay at check in since I had prepaid in advance. While the area is awesome, there is a lot of nightlife directly across the street and tons of traffic noise - bring earplugs to sleep! It would have been nice to have a microwave in the room (there was a fridge though!). The roof pool and bar area is actually a lot smaller than I thought and the view is pretty blocked. I was bummed that there was zero room service or more hotel food options BUT this is Covid, so I can't really hold that against them! Overall I would definitely stay here again - just budget for an extra $150 to check in.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Charged extra $25.45 “property fee” despite Expedia already charging us $22 property fee. Had to argue my way out of it - didn’t refund until I used foul language- but having a confrontation like that ruins a relaxing get away.
