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.

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!

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.

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.

"They treat me like family there; everybody remembers my name. It’s a seamless transition from New York, since I feel like I always have a little home in L.A.”

Erin Walsh, Fashion Stylist and Creative Director

The AKA University City was a great refuge from the madness of filming. Warm staff, spacious suite and facilities, very comfortable bed and the best sunrise view in Philadelphia.

Brian Kirk, Director of 17 Bridges

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.

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.

I love my stays at AKA. I feel like I have my own apartment!" – Maria Menounos, correspondent for E! and film producer.

I enjoyed my stay at AKA Beverly Hills. The suite was spacious and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful and the fireplace was a nice touch that made the room feel cozy.

Yolanda Yoh Bucher, CCO of New Beauty Magazine

While teaching and doing makeup for clients on the West Coast, I had the pleasure to stay at the stylish, spacious AKA Beverly Hills property...My stay was awesome. The AKA Staff are super friendly, courteous and professional. I truly felt like it was my home away from home. I can't wait to come back!

Carl Ray

AKA is a great place to stay with all the amenities you need for an easy and stress-free stay. The staff is wonderful!

Kathleen Turner

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

AKA's LIVE IT program is one that I can't wait to experience again. My staycation was perfect from the moment I opened the door to my gorgeous room that felt like a modern home equipped with a full kitchen, living room, oversized bathtub, and fireplace among other amenities. LIVE IT offered the best of all worlds, including movie night in the property's private screening room, an indulgent massage in the comfort of my room, and being able to walk over to Spago for dinner. AKA's LIVE IT program made me want to extend my stay. I loved the cruiser bikes provided by the hotel to venture out and explore the neighborhood as well as its proximity to everything. The unique LIVE IT experience made my stay at AKA one of a kind and I can't wait to LIVE IT again.

Ramona Saviss, Deputy Editor, Los Angeles Confidential

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. 

Lee Daniels

AKA University City is my home away from home — the apartments are spacious, modern, with top-of-the line appliances, linens, dishes, utensils, and excellent HD TV’s. A rare gem in the city.  Staff is super-friendly and welcoming. Truly state-of-the-art luxury and the only way to go!


Jen Su

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.

Suzanne Farwell, Blockbuster Movie Producer

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.

Adam Sloan, EVP Tribeca Enterprises

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

Michael T. Clarkston, Producer

All the people on our “Trial Team” appreciate the quality of AKA Rittenhouse Square and the outstanding service rendered by the very fine professional staff. We appreciate their kindness and genuine interest.

Jeffrey Singer, Attorney

AKA United Nations has exceeded my expectations in every way. The accommodations, property, and facilities are exquisitely maintained. AKA is an outstanding property and great concept. The entire staff is very focused on providing exceptional service. The AKA staff is simply the best and makes all the difference. Thank you for your excellent service and hospitality.

Richard Sampson, Managing Director of JP Morgan Chase

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

Kristine W, Singer/Songwriter

Thank you for such a great stay at the AKA Times Square. The Penthouse was amazing. It was like a home away from home, but the best compliment about your hotel is your staff. They made such a difference to my stay.

Michelle Labonte, Protravel International Inc.

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.

Danielle DeCristoforo, 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.

Elizabeth Esposito, Program Manager 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.

Fran Boyle, Business Traveler

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.

Donna Meislin, Long-Stay Resident

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.

Nicole, Family Member of Patient at Memorial Sloan Kettering

I will never forget the wonderful hospitality and the incredible service that AKA and its staff offers. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with smiles, and everyone made sure our needs were met. From the location to the design to the exclusive resident lounge, it was the perfect location. We felt at home, so much that we've spent a month's time at this particular location. We'll definitely be staying here again!

R.H. Sin, Best Selling Author

The service was fabulous. The suite was spectacular. The location was perfect. What a wonderful stay we had at AKA Sutton Place.

Jenelle M. Fanaro, Long-stay Resident

I was very happy with the quality of my stay. My suite was spotless, it would have passed my mother's white glove test. This is by far the best home-away-from-home I have ever experienced.

Business Traveler, Bank of America

AKA Rittenhouse Square is unanimous amongst our crew as the best place we have stayed in over five years working on 24/7. Your staff couldn’t have been more helpful. The accommodations were wonderful. And we loved as well!

Producer, HBO 24/7

AKA White House in Washington DC has been wonderful. Who would have thought a suite in the center of DC would have such a large living space? I slept better in the AKA bed than my bed at home. I liked it so much I even inquired about buying an AKA bed for my home!

Business Traveler, World Bank

Staying with AKA is always a pleasure. Among all amenities and service, coming from another country it is nice to have access to a large range of foreign tv channels. Most may not notice this but when English is not your native language these are the touches that make you feel at home.

Business Traveler, International Monetary Fund

AKA Beverly Hills is in the heart of the most interesting and dynamic place in the world; and you are right there, in easy walking distance to the best shops and restaurants allowing for an elegant LA experience! If you need a home away from home, like we did while ours was under construction, we can highly recommend AKA as a place to stay.

Marvin and Patti, Former Residents

The AKA staff was GREAT! Wonderful facility and a splendid place to stay. On our next trip to California, this is the only place we would consider. Thanks for all you did for us.

Harvey, Former Resident

I have been a guest at AKA since its very inception here in the heart of Beverly Hills. What a truly beautiful place with a wonderful staff, great amenities and an unbeatable location.
