More Room Types

The Freehand Miami is reimagining the typical hotel, with both private and shared-room options. Think of it as a hotel cross-pollinated with a hostel.

In addition to private rooms, there are same-sex shared rooms and co-ed rooms of different sizes. Party animals and adventurous souls might choose to bunk in a “Super 8” room, which is made up of eight twin-size bunk beds with two bathrooms. Smaller groups might choose a private quad room of four beds and one bathroom.

The common areas resemble an independent coffeehouse in a hipster area. Long tables have folks using the free Wi-Fi on their laptops and classic board games like Connect Four and Life dot the accent tables. Flea market finds fill the space like a bookcase wall filled with dozens of past National Geographic magazines. Unadorned and somewhat plain hallways and stairwells areas will remind you that the reimagined Art Deco building is more hostel than hotel.

Although the beach is a five minute walk from here, the real action is at the lush courtyard pool and at the on-site cocktail bar the Broken Shaker. Don’t let the kitschy décor fool you-the creative libations were James Beard Award semi-finalists and both tourists and locals can be found soaking up the scene.

From the press:
  • “A gourmet cocktail bar, the Broken Shaker, with light bites and tipples so terrific they made James Beard Award finalist" -- Frommer’s
  • “The brilliant re-imagining of the old Indian Creek Hotel, a classic of the Miami Beach scene” --Lonely Planet
