I have stayed at AKA while filming and working in many cities and truly appreciate the space, comfort, privacy and attentiveness of the staff. The suites have a very open and inspiring atmosphere. My most recent stays at AKA Sutton Place, Rittenhouse Square, and Beverly Hills were wonderful.
"I am a big fan of AKA. I have stayed at three AKA's, two in New York and now here in Philadelphia. I love AKA!" said Jennifer Lawrence to Larry Korman, while staying with AKA and filming The Silver Linings Playbook with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in Philadelphia.
While traveling for work for months at a time, feeling like I am at a home away from home is of utmost importance. The suite, the design, and the wonderful staff at AKA Beverly Hills make this a reality for me.

Wayne Newton and his wife Kat got a taste of both the east coast AKA and the west coast AKA this winter. Wayne not only appreciated the privacy and residential feel of both properties, and the anonymity that affords them, but also the full scale kitchen for late night snacks!
"AKA is one of the best kept secrets," said Andy Garcia after staying at AKA Sutton Place for two months while filming City Island. "You have the space of a suite coupled with sharp attention to detail from a staff who make you feel right at home without being overwhelming. I was able to come and go as I pleased with an anonymity that is hard to come by in New York City. Don’t tell too many people about this. I’ll be back!"
"AKA Hotels are a great hotel idea run by great people. Apartments in a Hotel for those who are staying in one of their cities for longer than just a few nights. To have a full-blown kitchen is just great. It means you're not relying on the same old room service menu night after night and don't have to book that lonesome table for one if you don't feel like it. But the best thing about the AKA group is the staff. Friendly, professional and incredibly efficient. Nothing is too much trouble for them to help you with and, frankly, I miss them! I would have no trouble in recommending AKA to anyone lucky enough to be filming in Philly.”
90210 Icon Raves about AKA Central Park 10019
"Word-of-mouth recommendations are the best way to go, so when a friend suggested AKA, I booked my New York stay at its Central Park property. What makes AKA so special is a long list of things: amazing locations, stylish, spacious suites with full kitchens, the helpful and courteous staff, and the beds! The beds are amazing – key when you’re on the road and in need of a great night's sleep. All in all, staying at AKA means you’re getting the best of the best."
"As a guest of AKA Central Park's penthouse during New York Fashion Week this year, I can
say that the accommodations are fantastic. As a designer myself, I appreciate the design of the
space and the beautiful terraces. As a musician, I really enjoyed the overall atmosphere at the
hotel – it’s just a great scene. Highly recommended." – Richie Sambora, lead guitarist of Bon Jovi and co-designer of the WTB fashion line debuted at Style360 show
I spent two months at AKA Marylebone for business and it is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. What a fantastic location, surrounded by plenty of wonderful restaurants, pubs, cafes, and shops and just down the street from one of London’s most beautiful parks, Regent’s Park. My suite was fully equipped, incredibly comfortable, from the heated floor in the bathroom to the incredibly cozy bed. The staff is knowledgeable, delightful, and efficient. I highly recommend AKA.

Actor James Caan is well known for his many renowned Hollywood performances, arguably the most popular being his signature role as Sonny Corleone in The Godfather, which scored him a Best Supporting Actor nomination. While his talents have earned him generations of fans, James himself is a fan of AKA. “I consider AKA Beverly Hills my home away from home. What I most appreciated were the number of personalized services and how attentive and accommodating the team was," shares James, who stayed at the AKA Beverly Hills while renovating his home. “Not to mention the convenience of having your own luxury residence. Having the comfort and privacy of your own home, paired with the amenities of a luxury hotel — you can’t beat it.”
AKA combines the conveniences of a hotel with the comforts of home, which are critical to those of us in the film industry, who are on location for extended periods of time. The staff is attentive and really makes you feel taken care of. From spacious accommodations (with full kitchens!) to the fantastic location, you have everything you need. Did I mention the beds? Amazing. I highly recommend AKA.

Tribeca Film Festival Producer is Wowed by AKA Penthouse
"The only way to describe my first impression of AKA is wow. Space to breathe, tasteful decorations, paired with excellent service. The experience and excellent hospitality starts immediately when you check in and are greeted by outgoing and thoughtful staff. Perhaps the best way to describe how much we enjoyed our penthouse at AKA is that we ended up staying in both nights to enjoy the great space and view from our suite."
EVP of Tribeca Enterprises, Producers of the Tribeca Film Festival
"We never have to look further than our own Times Square backyard for the excellent accommodations, service, and ultimate convenience of AKA. From Soap Opera stars like General Hospital’s Anthony Geary to International recording artists like Kristine W to "fantasy weekend" auction winners, AKA treats all of our VIPs like stars"

"I absolutely love AKA. The staff was so kind and helpful, and the rooms are the biggest and the best rooms in NYC. It is perfect for musicians and artists. I was able to set out my costumes and have my makeup people come, and still have room for my instruments. I carry a lot of stuff with me when we are touring! The hardwood floors are beautiful. I felt like I was in my own fabulous apt. in NYC. I will be recommending AKA to all my peeps. I am a new fan"

“Exceptional customer service! The suite was very stylish, clean, and comfortable. Having a kitchen was so special and unique. I've traveled to 10 countries and have stayed in five star hotels, no suite has ever been so well designed and inviting. Thank you for a lovely stay.”
Energi Holdings, Inc
"Thank you for a wonderful stay at AKA Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia! Your staff was so warm and friendly. The unit was beautiful! I really appreciated the nice basket of goodies you left. The night views from the room were amazing. We turned out all the lights in the room, sat on the bed and just loved looking out at everything. The breakfast was just right with big muffins, crisp apples and hot chocolate. We felt so pampered with the big, fluffy towels, soft beds and pretty music which we played each night when we went to bed. Resident Services was the best, pointing out restaurants and entertainment within walking distance from the building. I have heartily recommended AKA to everyone here at AIReS."

“AKA Sutton Place is beautifully appointed. Every Suite that we have stayed in has been exceptional. Everything you could ask for has been thought of, whether you are staying for one week or one year. The entire staff is professional, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make your stay the best. ”
"My husband, Allan, and I came to AKA United Nations with the intention of staying for three months as our loft in SoHo was being renovated. Our three-month stay extended into over 13 months. We would like to thank and acknowledge everyone at our temporary home at the AKA United Nations. We found everyone to be exceptionally warm, hospitable and gracious to us. What could have been an unfortunate set of circumstances became a wonderful memory.
All of the staff at AKA United Nations are truly outstanding: the cleaning and maintenance staff, all of the people at the front desk, the door, and the management staff, all are exceptionally supportive. They knew us by name and always had a friendly smile and helping hand.
The services at AKA are first class.
We highly recommend AKA to our friends and relatives. AKA is truly a class act."
"I wish to take this opportunity to thank the AKA Sutton Place team. Everyone was so nice, eager to help and always greeting us with a smile! The wonderful ambiance of our apartment and the sensitiveness of your staff definitely played a key role during the recuperation. We will be returning to AKA Sutton Place during the upcoming year. Please keep up your commitment to excellence because it really makes a difference."
