This was my second stay at A.K.A. TImes Square. Since my first visit (May 2008), there've been changes and none for the better. This hotel still advertises "complimentary continental breakfast." On my reservation confirmation this became "club breakfast." Translation: coffee and petit sweet rolls. A year ago, a credible continental breakfast was served on the uppermost floor. That is now...

I selected this hotel in part because it was discounted and in part because I loved the idea of having a kitchen and a place where I could meet with colleagues. It has pretty much everything that a business traveler could need; there is a parking garage less than a block away, the location is great for walking to mid... More

We have just recently returned from staying at the AKA Times Square and would certainly return again to this hotel. We booked a Deluxe 1 bedroom apartment, and we were very pleased with the accomodation. The main living area was as described. The kitchen had good appliances and had all we required for our weeks stay. We found the bathroom... More

We stayed in an executive suite. Large studio room with full kitchen, table/chairs, wonderful king-sized bed plus 2 more easy chairs plus a den in the back of apt. The place was large and awesome. Did not have that hotel smell b/c of the wood floors and blinds instead of curtains and was about $80 cheaper than the hotel next... More

Stayed for 6 days. Booked a 1 Bedroom deluxe apartment, and the rates were comparable with other luxury hotels in the Times Square area. I was a little concerned after reading the negative reviews regarding rodents and cleanliness, but after checking on the history of the postings of the most persons (basically no other postings) I concluded they may be...

We just returned from a 5 night stay at AKA Times Square. We went with our 18month old son and having previously stayed in 5 star hotels in NYC, we wanted a high standard apartment with a kitchen as we were travelling with the young man. Some reviews on here (rodents, noise etc) bothered me slightly, but we proceeded to... More

Ok let me start off with the good, the rooms are spacey. THAT"S IT! Bathrooms are FILTHY, rodents are rampant,amenities for the high price are minimal(the breakfast,fitness and business center are lacking equipment and selection) the lobby is boring and dull and the area is sooo noisy you can barely get a night's sleep.

We stayed here in October 2008 with 2 teenagers and the location was fantastic - just off Times Square but noise was not a problem. Staff were very helpful, having internet access was useful. The appartment (2 bedroom) was very spacious and the kitchen facilities were excellent. I would be very happy to recommend this for either business or pleasure.

This is an amazing apartment hotel steps off Times Square. I found it by pure fluke (verbal recommendation -- friend of a friend of a friend). Very clean, modern and somewhat austere decor. An older building that has been thoroughly renovated. The bathroom contained a luxurious deep soaker tub and gentle rainshower shower. While it does not have a restaurant... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
