A stylish hotel housed in a historic building in Downtown LA

Total number of rooms: 226 | Prices start from 151 US$ |

Nestled within LA’s landmark Commercial Exchange Building is the trendy hotel of Freehand Los Angeles. It welcomes all kinds of guests and offers suites, premium hotel rooms, and shared accommodations.

Once you enter the hotel, the wood-paneled floor and pillared lobby will greet you. Thus, bringing you back to the old building’s Downtown’s Golden Era. The social spaces boast a boutique vibe that makes it one of the most rising hotels in the area.

Moreover, rooms are designed with local artworks and all solid wood furniture. Rooms are generous in space and have floor to ceiling windows which gives a beautiful view of the city. Also, each room comes with flat-screen 43″ cable TV, digital radios, and a work desk. You will also find a minibar and a basket loaded with snacks.

And as we mentioned earlier, the hotel offers different types of rooms for all kinds of travelers. They have quad rooms perfect for families and shared rooms with bunk beds for solo travelers.

Aside from these, the hotel also puts you a great gastronomic opportunity since it features a restaurant, a bar, and a coffee shop.

The Exchange Restaurant is an all-day Israeli restaurant and gives LA flavors to their cuisines. And this spot has become one of the hot picks for the locals. It pays homage to the 12 story vintage blade sign in its entrance.

Next is the Broken Shaker located on the rooftop pool deck. This is the place to go if you’re looking for crafted cocktails and small bites. Cocktails include Trash-Tini with Grey Goose, Plymouth Gin, and charred-onion-infused Noilly Prat vermouth. The pool is also filled with beach chairs and offers a 360 view of the city.

Located on the lobby is the hotel’s Rudolph’s Bar & Tea which serves tea-infused cocktails alongside full tea service and light bites. And the last one is the Cafe Integral where you can get your daily dose of caffeine.

Good to know: Every Saturday and Sunday between 10 AM to 3 PM, the hotel serves a leisurely weekend brunch.
