The apartment was spacious, modern and very comfortable. It had 2 flat screen TVs, one in the bedroom and the other in the living room. There was a bathroom and separate loo. The bed was so comfortable and big. The place was well equipped with a washing machine and dryer, and a lovely big fridge and cooker, plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery and coffee machine but no pots and pans which was surprising considering the cooking facilities available. We didn't need them - perhaps if you asked you could get them. The AC was good and easy to control.
The gym was closed while we were there but they said they had arrangement for guests to use another gym/hotel nearby. We didn't check it out as the location is perfect for running - just a few blocks north of the mall.
The only slightly negative thing was that the bedroom was quite dark; there was no natural light as it had no windows and the lights were very dim. Oh, and there was no full length mirror.
The location is excellent. A very safe area, with several branches of CVS within walking distance and a Whole Foods about 10-15 mins walk away. The area has lots of bars and restaurants around though it does get a bit quiet on weekends.
The reception staff were mostly friendly; one lady was slightly fierce in her dealings with the bellboy one day. I wasn’t sure how hotel security worked, if reception checked who was coming and going - food delivery guys seemed to walk straight in off the street and up to rooms.
All in all, we loved AKA White House and would definitely stay here again.
