I stayed in an one bedroom apartment for two months and had a fabulous stay. The furnishings were elegant and it was very spacious.

Liz.... This is the most amazing hotel staff representative you could wish to encounter.

Liz.... This is the most amazing hotel staff representative you could wish to encounter. The story is too long, but to summarise... 15 minutes after my arrival at AKA Times Square from the airport I realised I had left my phone in a yellow cab. Several staff members immediately set about calling my phone and continued until eventually the person who found my phone called the hotel 😁 to locate a lost mobile phone in New York is beyond belief, but knowing that I had just arrived and did not know my way around, Liz went way beyond the call of duty and collected it. I can't thank the staff enough, my short break with my daughter to celebrate her 21st birthday was almost ruined on arrival, but this hotel has an approach to guests far beyond expectation. The hotel itself is everything you can want and more, location, staff, rooms and ambiance are all 10 out of 10, would definitely stay again... Highly recommended. If you are reading this review, stop searching for accommodation in New York, you have found what you are looking for. Thank you to all the staff, especially Liz 👍 Read less

Family of 5 including 3 20-something daughters in Manhattan to celebrate a milestone B'Day. We were hard-pressed to find accommodations and finally found AKA Times Square. WOWSER! Couldn't have done better at ANY price. Excellent midtown location just off Times Square with easy walkable access to theatre/Central Park/subway. Two bedrooms, common LARGE family area, full kitchen with range/oven/microwave/washer/dryer/large refrigerator (Sub-Zero w/ ice-maker!!). Staff outperformed the room! The Universe smiled on us...No complaints. Minor issue- One bathroom (3 daughters), little natural light in our room. . Highly recommend you check it out for yourself! Read less
