My husband and I rented an apartment for 30+ days in late September and October when our daughter delivered twins prematurely. Due to high occupancy at the time we arrived, the staff upgraded us to a beautiful, elegantly decorated, light, large upper floor apartment with a full kitchen where we remained throughout our stay. Sutton Place is a lovely section of NYC next to the East River, and we often walked to visit our newborn grandsons at NY Presbyterian Hospital. AKA Sutton Place is located on a quiet, tree lined block on 56th between 1st and 2nd. The location is a short walk to the subway, good restaurants, markets, coffee shops and midtown stores. Catching a cab on 1st and 2nd was never a problem. It is possible to walk to AKA Sutton Place from the theatre district, which I did on several evenings when catching a Times Square cab was impossible. The staff was uniformly helpful and pleasant with one or two individuals at the front desk and door at all times during my comings and goings. A well appointed bar located in a beautifully designed public area offered for purchase coffee and pastries in the morning and cocktails in the evening. The workout facility was clean, pleasant and well equipped. There was a lovely lap pool that was monitored by a guard. AKA Sutton Place is really an apartment which affords the feeling of a home that a hotel cannot provide. The staff know the residents by name. Often staying by myself, I consistently felt safe and at home at AKA and in the surrounding area. AKA Sutton Place was an oasis during an exciting but stressful period for our family. I commend the management and staff, particularly Jose Paulino, for their professional demeanor and personalized investment in their guests. As with hotels, New York state and local taxes are high, and this should be figured into one's daily rental rate. AKA Sutton Place requires a lease as per any rental, and date modifications should be addressed a minimum of 15 days in advance. I have extremely positive feelings about our stay at AKA Sutton Place and would recommend it highly.
