“Just a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Beautiful area, close to all attraction. the room was spacious with a fu;;y stocked kitchen and 11/2 baths. The King size bed was very comfortable amd the bedroom large with a walkin closet.
House keeping is once a week, but they provide enough supplies towels and all to last you a week, There is a nice quiet londge on site, but no restaurants, but numerous within walking distance. Some of my favorites were Ruth Crisp Steak, Black Finn, the Bottom Line. Th desk staff is extremely helpful and friendly,

If your wanting a fully furnished two bedroom apartment in the center of DC this is the place! It's only two blocks from the white house. Everything is in walking distance! My condo was quite large. It had hardwood floors and a great living area!The only complaint I have is I stayed here for two weeks and at $365 a night it didn't take long for the bill to stack up.

Beautify property and extremely helpful staff. Location is perfect and conveniently located within blocks of most attrations and downtown offices. I arrived at AKA around 9 p.m., and although there was no restaurant on site, the desk staff was extremely helpful at finding a place to eat, even after 10 p.m. Additionally, when checking out they held my luggage for me while I attended a work meeting. My only recommendation would be to have the housekeeping staff complete their rounds a little earlier. I had the housekeeping staff stop by my room as late as 6 pm, which was a little awkward when I was in my room taking a nap before going out on the town.

Extremely comfortable 7 day stay. Spacious room, a full kitchen, washer/dryer and 2 bathrooms. a couple blocks from the white house and conveniently located, you can not ask for more and I certainly didnt. There was no view but that was expected as youre in the city not a seaside resort.

The only issue I had was the abrupt lady at the front desk. I was expecting 2 packages and on on my way out one day enquired at front desk if anything had arrived. I was told abruptly by the lady(I didnt get her name) that nothing had arrived, that she doesnt need to check as SHE logs everything. I was speechless and surprised as my package was on floor directly behind her. I decided I'd ask later when she had left whereby the gentleman at the front desk promptly checked and handed me my 2 packages which by the way were marked on the sheet as "delivered". the only blemish on a brilliant stay

We stayed at AKA White House and our experience was superlative. The greeting and efficiency of the front desk staff was great; a short check-in time, then to our suite. We were upgraded and we thoroughly enjoyed our one bedroom penthouse suite. In similar hotels around the world, we have found cleanliness to be a problem but not here - everything was "ship shape". The bed was very comfortable (another common complaint for us). And, the decor was typical of the five star hotels nearby. The nightly rate was about one-half what we would have paid at Hay-Adams or St. Regis.

Room Tip: We prefer a room away from the main street, H Street - it is quieter.

I stayed at the AKA Whitehouse for 3 nights. My 2 bedroom suite was clean, spacious and nicely furnished and ideal for my son, his mate and myself. Having 2 bathrooms was a real bonus so to was the kitchen. The location was excellent and within easy walking distance to the White House, Capital Hill and all the monuments it's even an easy stroll to Arlington Cemetery. Restaurants like the Founding Farmers were an easy walk and a short cab ride took you to Georgetown an lovely little town. Metro station was close by too. I would be more than happy to stay here again and would recommend.

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.
