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.

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.

"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.”

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.
