We stayed at the AKA Times Square from the 23rd dec 2012 until the 2nd jan 2013. The location of the hotel is fantastic to say the least, Right off the centre of TS.
The rooms are well kitted out and spacious.
Whilst we stayed there, there was construction going on at the front of the apartments so we couldnt really see out of the window :(
The main reason we stayed at these apartments was for the new years eve celebrations. Being that the apartments are just off broadway/T.S we stupidly assumed you would be able to get a better location for the NYE celebrations if you paid extra (a lot lot lot extra) to stay in the middle of the action. When we left the apartment at 7.00pm on NYE the police wouldn't let us enter TS from our hotel street and we had to walk a number of blocks back up manhatten to access from there. We spoke to reception about why they charged so much for the night of NYE when there is absolutely no benefit of the extra money and they just said "that is how it is".
Going on that i'm returning to New York for a week before Christmas this year and i will not be returning to AKA Times Square.
