My husband and I stayed at the AKA Times Square for 14 days. Our stay was extraordinary. We rented a deluxe studio with den which had recently been refurbished. The staff (front desk, doormen and housekeeping) cannot do enough for you. The kitchen and bathroom were modern and beautifully appointed. Wifi was lightening fast. The washer/dryer in… Read more
My husband and I stayed at the AKA Times Square for 14 days. Our stay was extraordinary. We rented a deluxe studio with den which had recently been refurbished. The staff (front desk, doormen and housekeeping) cannot do enough for you. The kitchen and bathroom were modern and beautifully appointed. Wifi was lightening fast. The washer/dryer in the room was a blessing and allowed us to travel lightly. AKA Times Square is a gem in a city that can often be difficult and expensive. Read less

The AKA Times Square provided a suite option for our family that I couldn't find with a hotel -and I didn't know the area well enough to comfortably choose an AirBNB. The location was less than a block from Times Square, so far enough away to be able to walk to a less busy corner to catch a cab & avoid the crowds but close enough to walk to any… Read more
The AKA Times Square provided a suite option for our family that I couldn't find with a hotel -and I didn't know the area well enough to comfortably choose an AirBNB. The location was less than a block from Times Square, so far enough away to be able to walk to a less busy corner to catch a cab & avoid the crowds but close enough to walk to any theater, restaurant, museum in the area. The staff was very welcoming & it felt like having an apartment vs. a hotel room. The welcome email we received a few days before our stay was very helpful, as was the option to order a starter pack of groceries. Having a small washer/dryer in our room was incredibly helpful.

Wow, if you have never looked at or thought about staying at an AKA, here is a good Starting place. AKA Times Square is in the heart of Times Square you can see the ball from the front windows. Each room has a bedroom, full kitchen, beautiful bathroom and lots of room, especially for NYC. The staff was so helpful and friendly! You are only minutes from all of the SUBWAY lines, this is very important for getting around NYC. I would highly recommend staying at ANY of the AKA if you have the opportunity Read less

What a downgrade from the beautiful AKA Sutton place property. Have to stay here for the last few days as my flight got cancelled . Very small, old and tired rooms and the bathroom is a joke. The tv doesn’t work in any of the rooms. No place for my son to set his ps 5 up. Not a very nice location for families as saw security trying to remove a… Read more
What a downgrade from the beautiful AKA Sutton place property. Have to stay here for the last few days as my flight got cancelled . Very small, old and tired rooms and the bathroom is a joke. The tv doesn’t work in any of the rooms. No place for my son to set his ps 5 up. Not a very nice location for families as saw security trying to remove a drunken guy from outside the hotel last night. Had really high hopes from the AKA brand after having spent a wonderful month at Sutton place but this is very disappointing for the money being paid. Gave two stars only for the staff that work here. Read less
