We stayed here for 1 week, gad a deluxe studio room. The room was great but could have been better, the bed was only a queen but there was plenty of room to have a king, there was no bench space in the bathroom, as the sink was too big and could have done with being a bit smaller, but... More

Hubby and I just spent 14 fabulous nights here. We booked a studio room (650 square feet) and were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade. The studio room is the smallest room the aka has to offer here but it's huge by NY standards. Beautifully appointed in a contemporary style, these large rooms offer a kitchenette, washer & dryer (my saving... More

This hotel is fantastic, we will definitely stay here again if we come back to NY. It is right near Times Square, an easy walk up to Central Park and wonderfully appointed. Our room was lovely, quite big for a New York apartment and very quiet. It was so nice to have a kitchen so we could make breakfast before... More

Just arrived back after a wonderful 4 night stay at the AKA. Location-wise, it is pretty much hard to beat, literally 50 yards from the mayhem of Times Square. When we arrived, I was concerned about actually just how close it was, and worried about the noise. We stayed in room 401, and apart from some extractor fan noises, it... More

Loved our stay at the Strand in NYC. Great location within few blocks of Times Square, Fifth Ave Shopping and walking distance to Broadway and great restaurants. Rooftop bar with most amazing view of the Empire State Building

Will start by saying I did ALOT of research looking for a hotel in NYC for us yo stay. As a family of 5 all the usual hotels required us to take 2 rooms (and wouldn't guarantee they would be interconnecting) which can make for an incredibly expensive stay given that NYC is already an expensive destination in hotel terms....

Stayed here in July for 6 days and was very impressed by the rooms, fully equipped kitchen and decor. Excellent location, close to all major places that you would want to visit. Would definitely recommend staying here while in NYC especially if you plan to visit the theatre. The only issue we had was with the stale smells form the... More

When I first got to my room at the AKA Times Square, I was impressed not only by the decor but by the generously sized space in this long term stay hotel. Because it is a long term, apartment style hotel each room has a fully equipped kitchen which would seem on the surface to be a good thing. Unfortunately,... More
