I asked for a very quiet room and was put in PH 1. The apartment was nice enough and clean although the bathroom was tiny. I could hear noise from the street until about 2 AM the first night but was able to sleep after that. The following day housekeeping never came. We asked for service and we were told...

We stayed for 9 nights in a 2 bedroom suite. The best thing about AKA RS is the location. It is right in the middle of everything that is interesting and fun about Philly. You can pretty much walk everywhere from here. The suite is very spacious and the beds/pillows are very very comfortable. Aesthetically, we would describe the room...

This is a hotel-serviced apartment building by Rittenhouse Square. Stayed in the studio room. The location is arguably the best in Philly, in the middle of center city, close to some of the best restaurants, bars and shops. The staff was friendly and efficient. The room itself was of good size and tastefully decorated. Good linens on the bed. No...

Stayed here for night while working the Made in America festival. Stayed in a Sky Suite, on the 11th floor. Saying it is luxurious is an understatement. The front desk staff was very friendly and understanding. I was checking in very late (11:30pm) after the concert, and the check in process was stress-free and smooth sailing. He even helped later...

No complaints about where AKA is located! Right off Rittenhouse, walking distance to everything. Room was spacious and the bed was nice. Bathroom a tiny bit small without a lot of shelf space. And as with every hotel near Rittenhouse, parking is an issue! Wish they offered valet parking, but they don't. Closest lot is around the corner, but because...

I cannot say enough about this hotel. Booked it last minute because it was one of the cheaper options downtown. It's located on the corner of 18th and Walnut Streets, right at Rittenhouse Square. First, they have no on-site parking (more on that later). We parked in a garage 1/2 block away on Walnut which was fine ($33 for 24...

Our business team was in Philly for a 3 day conference and stayed at AKA. It was the perfect hotel for us. They truly care about the small details and the level of service is outstanding. We rented one of their larger rooms with two bedrooms, a living room, full kitchen and two bathrooms. The space was perfect. We asked...

I stayed here before, but it was when they had newly opened this location so it seems that the decor is dated and a bit run down at this point. Not looking very fresh upstairs! I got to see several rooms as the room category I had BOOKED was not what they first sent me to. Asking for another room,...

My family and I stayed at AKA this weekend to attend our son's graduation and had the most wonderful experience. It's located in a fun and accessable area - filled with restaurants, shops, etc. The hotel suite was beautiful, modern and spotless. The service was exceptional.

Spent one night here in a great, modern one-bedroom suite. King bed was quite firm, but comfortable, two big screen TV's, free wifi, full kitchen. Lovely for a short or long stay. I was on 12th floor with fantastic views over Rittenhouse Square park.
