celebrating our second century
Meet the Makers


AKA’s legendary approach to flexible-stay lodging is unique. Comfortably stay a week or many months; and for meals: stay in and cook in your fully-equipped apartment kitchen or dine at one of AKA’s soulful, of-the-moment restaurants. Our philosophy has always been to thoughtfully assemble a group of leading restaurant owners and chefs and let them create authentic experiences that speak to our specific locations and current dining landscape. No generic hotel restaurants here! Following is a visual portfolio of five compelling chefs and restaurateurs in our collection: In New York City—Andrew Carmellini of Little Park at AKA Tribeca; and Eric Bromberg of Blue Ribbon Federal Grill at AKA Wall Street. In Los Angeles—Wolfgang Puck of the iconic Spago Beverly Hills; and Raphael Francois, chef at Tesse at AKA West Hollywood. And finally, in our hometown of Philadelphia, Ellen Yin, proprietor of at AKA Rittenhouse Square.
