“Enjoyable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I stayed at the AKA Whitehouse for 3 nights while in DC for business. My suite was very clean and spacious. Having a full kitchen while away from home was a treat. There was a gift bag waiting for me in the suite from the hotel's general manager with a handwritten note. I was impressed by the gesture. The bag was full of practical goodies and included 2 coupons for complimentary glasses of wine in the lobby bar.

The cons: The lack of true daily housekeeping. When I am away I like for my room to be serviced every day in a detailed manner. The maid simply brought new towels and pulled the sheets back on the bed - a bit dissapointing. Also as mentioned in other reviews the suite was a bit dark. I like a lot of natural light and a bright space.

The location is great in terms of being close to DCA airport and it is in a walkable area with plenty of restaurants near by.

The staff I encountered were friendly and accomodating. Drinks in the lobby bar were also enjoybale.

If given AKA Whitehouse as an option while staying in DC I would stay again.

Room Tip: The suites are a perfect option for families and extended stay trips.

My sister and I stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, suite for a weekend in Washington. The property was very well-maintained and was quiet. We were in the back of the hotel and did not have a special view. Having two baths was quite luxurious. The kitchen was complete with microwave, full-size refrigerator, coffee maker and dishwasher. The location is perfect for walking to the White House and other attractions, such as the restaurants on Pennsylvania Avenue like Founding Farmers. Two metro stations are nearby; one is a block away and the other two blocks away. If you are staying over on a Sunday, be aware that the coffee shops nearby are not all open early on Sunday morning. Also, the lounge in the hotel serves wine and beer but was not open on the Saturday night when we visited, probably more fully in action on week nights. This DC hotel is business-like and best for adults but we did observe some well-behaved young children. We had a special rate involving payment ahead but were not actually charged until we arrived. Would like to stay again.

Room Tip: A room facing the front would probably have a more pleasant view than the back.

It's a very nice place with modern deco located in a very central location. The rates were much more reasonable than the average hotels in DC. It is very roomy, clean and our unit (#605) came with 2 bathrooms. It also has a very functional kitchen with a full size appliances, which was great. The only negative was that the walls are not well soundproofed, so you'll hear movements from the upper unit and hallway. But it's to,stable and not that bad. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. There are restaurants and coffee shops nearby (and a McDonalds around the corner) all within a block or two in distance. There are two metro stations about 2-3 short blocks away, and the bus stop is right in front of the hotel. Unfortunately, the only real grocery store is a Wholefoods several blocks away (maybe 3/4 mile away). However, for your basic needs, there is a CVS about a block away. The biggest plus to this place is that the White House (the real one) is very close and easily walkable. If you stay a week or more, the maid service is provided only once a week, but I believe you can opt to have it more often. We definitely recommend this place for your stay. BTW, our cab fare from the hotel to The Reagan Airport was just over $18, which isn't bad at all.)

Room Tip: Our room was #605, which was on the backside of the building. The walls are a little thin, but it...

It is nice, espacious and hs a full kitchen. In fact the apartment is huge! And also clean. I had a problem with hot water and it was solved promptly. The only two things that I wuld say are that the doors are a bit too noisy, so your neighbors could wake you up in the middle of the night and also that my room was very dark as the windows were facing an alley. There is coffee downstairs in the morning and I really appreciated that!

We have stayed at AKA White House numerous times and find it very convenient. We are in DC for extended periods of time and AKA offers everything we need -- kitchen, washer/dryer in unit and great location. We can walk everywhere we need to go including the grocery store (Safeway and Whole Foods nearby) and love the accessibility to all the sites on our days off. They offer a great layout for wheelchair users including suites with wheel-in showers. The staff is friendly and helpful. We love the new Friday night live music in the bar -- perfect for relaxing and unwinding after working all week.
