“Hot in the City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I have stayed at another AKA with the family and it was great so thought I would try this location on a recent business trip. Staff was nice and my room was ok but not great. But most of all the room was hot!

The room was so-so, the staff was nice but he room was a bit worn and HOT

I would not stay at this hotel

This is the second time we have stayed and again we were very impressed. Very comfortable, modern and clean. Also surprisingly quiet given its location. Great staff as well.
There are many great restaurants in the immediate area. Only disappointment is that the rooftop bar is still not open. When we stayed in March 2012 we were told it would be open shortly!
Even so, highly recommended.

Room Tip: A studio room provides greater space to spread out for a longer stay.

What a great place. Right in the thick of things. 44th street. A two minute walk up the street and your on Times Square. The hotel is more like having a condo. The unit had a nice look to it with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The staff were helpful and courteous. Needless to say, this really is the heart of Times Square so everything is available to your heart's desire.

We stayed at the AKA in June for 6 nights. The location was fantastic - very central but far enough off Times Square to be away from all the madness. The reception staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough to help us. Our room was spacious, modern and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the AKA Times Square for ten nights at the end of May 2013 and were delighted with the room, location and staff.

Located just minutes from Times Square the room was a one-bedroom suite with a roomy office. The room was very spacious with it's own washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. It was spotlessly clean and looked as though it had never been occupied.

The friendly staff, without exception, greeted you cheerfully with a smile every time you passed by and nothing was a problem from providing additional room supplies to information about directions and dining options.

We would happily stay here any time we returned to New York.

A wonderful apart hotel in a prime location, at the heart of all the action, just a few steps away from Times Square and major subway lines stations, hence with easy access to other parts of the city.
We had a one bedroom apartment that was VERY specious, even not in NYC standards (important when it comes to storing all of the shopping!!).
Very clean and modern with well equipped kitchen which is very convenient.
Staff are all very friendly and helpful (special thanks to Hande!)
A great choice for NYC!

If you have a family or are traveling with another couple, AKA suites are perfect. Rent one suit instead of two hotel rooms, and live/feel the NYC style. Top shelf modern accommodations in the heart of the city. Limited but friendly accommodating service.
