I cannot said enough great things about this hotel. From my arrival where the doorman remembered me from my last stay to the spacious accommodations, with a washing machine and dryer and kitchen, everything's on point. Complimentary coffee and tea service is a big perk. I usually do not like to stay in TS, but this location is perfect because you can go right out of the hotel and you are in the crowd of TS, or turn left and head away. Great staff, service and amenities. Read less

This was my friend’s first visit to the east coast and I wanted to show her everything. We selected aka because of their beautiful accommodations and superb location. We had a room with a city view on the penthouse level. The property is extremely well kept and the customer service was impeccable. We also took full advantage of the morning coffee and outdoor seating area when strategically planning our day. Theatre, subway, dining, concerts and shopping all within blocks of aka. Hard to ask for more! Read less

Steps away from Times Square which made late night shopping (after the kids sleep) great!

We were travelling in a big group including children. Laundry and kitchen were available which saved us a lot of hassle. Location is excellent. Steps away from Times Square which made late night shopping (after the kids sleep) great! You're never too far from anywhere, we walked from the hotel to Rockefeller, Empire State, Fifth Avenue and even Central Park! The downside was the kitchen being a little worn. Some refurbishment wouldn't hurt. The toilets were clean and they were very generous with the towels and pillows. All in all, excellent stay and an good choice for travelling with kids. Will return.
