Just stayed at a 2 Bed apartment . This was our 3rd stay in 3 years. The AKA feels like home to us know.

Just stayed at a 2 Bed apartment . This was our 3rd stay in 3 years. The AKA feels like home to us know. We got a refurbished apartment whereby they have painted and refurnished the place clean and bright. Apartment has all the necessary amenities and space when travelling with children and the kitchen /living space giving you the room to dine in. If I am being critical the communal areas by the lifts etc could do with a freshen up too as staring to look tired and dark. Service always excellent with everyone keen to make sure we enjoy our stay and offer recommendations on restaurants etc. Massive thanks as always to Cesar and Emily Y for their excellent service and always making us feel so welcome. They could do more with PH2 and the outside deck/roof garden however, a great space wasted in my opinion. Coffee for a few hours in the morning so how about a residents only bar for a couple of hours each evening? Highly recommended as a central base in NY for those with families. Read less

So this was not my first time going to New York. I usually stay at 5 star hotels etc. this was definitely a different experience. Rooms are really spacious, we took the one bedroom. Comfortable, relaxing well equipped with a kitchenette. The only downside is that housekeeping is not done everyday, which they tell you upfront, but not a big deal… Read more

Location is great and looking forward to my return in a couple of weeks Read less

Great suites. Very clean. We enjoyed our stay. the walls are a little thin and we could hear our neighbors through the bedroom wall and in the hall. Otherwise, it felt like being at home. It was nice having a kitchen to cook breakfast in. Close to theatres.

AKA Times Square is in the best location central to absolutely everything especially to see a bunch of Broadway shows. The rooms are very spacious, well designed, modern and beautiful. It is the staff that makes this hotel so truly special. Kevin, Julio and Caesar went out of their way to make our stay special. Kevin was calm, cool and collected dealing with the tough personalities of other travelers and we really admired that. He was so nice to us and helpful. Julio went out of his way to not only bring a prime order to our suite he also unpacked it all. We were so touched! Caesar, was so much fun to chat with. We even were given an email of one of the staff because we wanted autographs from a show and she offered to try to help us with that. Amazing right? It was like being with a fun family. These awesome people are the true gems of NYC. Thank you for making our stay special. We have found our home away from home! Read less
