All Freehand Properties Recognized with Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards

Condé Nast Traveler announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, recognizing all four properties under the Freehand portfolio with top honours in a myriad of categories worldwide. They are Freehand New York, Freehand Miami, Freehand Chicago, and Freehand Los Angeles.

Freehand Hotels continues to create best in class destinations through championing the hybrid accommodation model with diverse offerings in suites, private rooms, shared bunk options, and flexible social and co-working spaces. Each distinctive Freehand location draws upon its surrounding neighbourhood, and features award-winning F&B destination, Broken Shaker, a favourite for handcrafted cocktails and globally inspired bites.

“We are extremely honoured that all four Freehand Hotels have been recognized by the Condé Nast Traveler 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards. Our gratitude goes to all the voters among its 800,000 readers worldwide, who endorse the Freehand brand’s unique, design-forward, affordable luxury accommodation, coupled with award-winning restaurants and bars, as well as community spirit across the four locations. We are dedicated to continuing to innovate in the hybrid accommodation space and are so proud of our teams for their commitment to making all Freehand properties well-loved worldwide,” said Alastair Thomann, CEO of Freehand Hotels.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry as they are voted on by the patrons of the properties. The 35th annual Readers’ Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler’s website and will be in the November 2022 issue of Condé Nast Traveler.
