I wish I have came across other AKA properties before booking with other brands for my family trip! I am so impressed with the property.

Located just few blocks or within walking distance from The White House, Lincoln Memorial, dozens of Smithsonian Museums and Chinatown, AKA White House is the best place to stay in DC when traveling with your family. My family and I stayed at the Penthouse with access to our private Balcony. We enjoyed cooking together with the whole family and gather around the Living Room to share stories.

The staff at AKA White House are amazingly helpful and friendly. I couldn't thank the Front Desk Ladies enough for their hospitality. The property itself is very modern and cozy.

What we love:
#1 Full Kitchenette
#2 Location, Location, Location!
#3 Friendly and Attentive Staff
#4 Welcome Kit and Complimentary Bottle of Wine from the GM, Aaron. Nice personal touch, don't lose it!

What could have been better:
#1 Won't hurt to have full size bed on the second bedroom of PH
#2 Won't also hurt to get better, non-stick pans
#3 When the Housekeeping mopped the floor, the smell of the liquid was not really nice, please consider changing the product to clean the floor.

I would love to come back to AKA White House and also try other AKA properties.

I found this hotel by luck just based on location. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It's for a great price given the area. I would stay here over the Marriott, Westin, Sheraton, etc. any day. Free wifi, full kitchen, nice king size comfy bed. It is beautifully decorated and is like living in a luxury condo in DC. I wish my real home was half as nice. I would definitely stay here again!

This hotel is at a great location for sight seeing. Also close to some of the most unique and romantic restaurants in DC, like the Oval Room and Taberna. The hotel lobby is quiet and modern, the elevator is nice, and the rooms are huge! I "could live here" because it has more of an apartment feel. You get your full kitchen and eating area, with living room, and master bedroom. Not much to expect from the Veranda on the topmost floor - no pool. There's a gym. Parking garage is right in the same building, but watch out, as they charge $30/day! Internet is free. The only thing that I wished were better was the hallway from the elevator to the rooms. The hallway was dark, and stuffy, so not so good ventilation, and a little on the dirty side. Very much like what one might expect in an apartment building. Rooms are also not too sound-proof (or smell proof - I could smell the popcorn from next door). Otherwise, it is perfect -- situated close to St Regis, if you want a fancier room. Enjoy!

My husband and I stayed at AKA White House 4 nights end of 2012; from the moment we stepped in we knew it was a special place and really exceeded all expectations; the staff was very friendly and professional, location could not ask for better and the apartment spectacular. I wish we stayed longer but plan to come back in the summer. I would recommend this without hesitation even if you do not need an apartment.

Location is great since it is close to the White House and other government buildings. Is two blocks away from a metro station and you have restaurants, shops and drugstores within walking distance. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are very spacious and fully equiped with all you need to enjoy extended stays!

I would very much like to convey my gratitude and appreciation for a most enjoyable stay at the AKA White House last week and especially to give commendation and kudos to the front desk agent that assisted me, Thao. From the moment I arrived until I left on, she not only exemplified exceptional service, she did so with a style and personality that provided a sense of ease about it that stood out as reassuringly capable. In a word, it was noteworthy.

I would be delighted to stay at the AKA White House on future visits (and, in fact, have already communicated this to my travel coordinator). I had a big week in DC that was rewarding on a number of fronts but included among those successes is the attention and consideration I experienced from the AKA staff thanks to Thao. She was a highlight. Please accept my appreciation, commendation, future recommendations and hope to return as the evidence of my satisfaction due to her compelling efforts. Well done!
