Q

Is it kid-friendly?

Freehand is a kid-friendly hotel; child care not provided.

 

Q

Who's invited?

A

You are! So is your friend, your partner, your grandmother, your pen pal and your cool neighbor who you'd like to get to know better. Anyone who's down for fun, new friends, adventure and the best weekend ever is more than welcome.

You certainly can! You're just not allowed to drink alcohol, according to New York state law.

 

Q

A

Why not a hotel? Also, this

 

Q

I live in New York — can I stay at Hotel MR, or is that weird?

A

It's definitely not weird. It's a staycation, and a bunch of Team MR are doing it, too. (Plus, HOTEL BATHROBES.) There's no separate pricing for locals, but we highly recommend you come sleep over.

 

Q

I'm thinking about turning this into a mini-vacation. Can I arrive earlier than Friday and/or stay past Sunday?

A

Hotel MR starts Friday and ends Sunday, but guests are welcome to arrive sooner or stay later and keep hanging out. A separate hotel reservation is required for the additional days, and you can email sales.nyc@thefreehand.com and reference Hotel Man Repeller to book. You'll get a special discount from Freehand Hotel for the additional nights, but there's a chance you may have to transfer rooms. They're all comfy, promise.

 

Q

I’m thinking of booking a room for myself! Cool if a friend comes with?

A

Your Hotel MR reservation serves as your all-access ticket for the weekend, so while you’re welcome to offer your friend a place to crash, he/she won’t have access to the events or other fun stuff we have in store without a ticket! If you and a friend would like to book, room and attend the events together, book a double room instead of a single!

 

Q

When is this shindig happening?

A

Check-in begins at noon on Friday, April 6th (make sure you're here by 6 p.m. so you don't miss out on anything) and check-out is noon on Sunday, April 8th.

 

Q

If I book a room and need to cancel, can I get a refund?

A

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer refunds. However, if there are any guests on the waitlist, we'll be happy to connect you to discuss purchasing your ticket. 

 

Q

What if I get there late?

A

No worries! Check in at the Freehand front desk and they'll point you in the right direction.

 

Q

How are room assignments made — can I pick my room?

A

You will be assigned a room on a first-come, first-served basis, but trust us: They are all great!

 

Q

Do I need to put down a credit card when I check in?

A

At the time of check-in for Hotel MR, a $150 incidentals hold will be placed on a personal credit card as a safety deposit for your room — it will be reimbursed the following weekend provided no damage has been done to the room. 

 

Q

Is Freehand wheelchair-accessible?

A

Freehand is wheelchair-accessible and has ADA rooms! Please email us to request an ADA room.
