We stayed at the AKA Sutton place for 30 days after having stayed at AKA UN for 15 days at an earlier trip.
AKA Sutton Place adheres to the same high standards as AKA - UN. The kitchenette though really tiny is well provided for. The only hitch is a mini - dishwasher instead of the normal sized one. The rooms are pretty much furnished the same way, and house-keeping is fantastic too. Not a thing out of place once house-keeping has done its job. Excellent! There is a nice indoor pool - it was great for the summer!
Location is in a quiet street just off 1st avenue, so from a tourist point of view it may be a little out of the way. Having said that nothing is too far away in Manhattan...you can always hop into a cab! AKA Sutton Place offers accommodation that is really value for money, a nice quiet neighbourhood in mid-town Manhattan. This is not a typical tourist hotel at Times Square, its the feel of staying in the real Manhattan, and Manhattan does exist beyond Times Square :))
The staff is the nicest that one can come across - always with a smile and ready to help! Rarely have I come across a house-keeping staff so diligent and a front desk so pleasing.
The reason this property gets a 4 and not a 5 is because our room had absolutely no view (we were on floor 9) and our window overlooked the adjoining building which was less than a few meters away) - that was the only unfavourable factor...its alright to look into the streets but to overlook a brickwall - that is totally unacceptable.
Would I stay here again? Most definitely! (But ask for a room above Floor 10). Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely!
