“Great hotel for family”
Reviewed 23 July 2011

We stayed here in June 2011 and loved it. We had a two bedroom suite and the rooms were very large. The kitchen was small, but plenty of room for cooking breakfast and dinner. My kids loved the pool and it was nice for them to have a place to ply after a day of sigh seeing. The location is very convenient to many places in New York and there is a grocery store around the block. The neighborhood felt very safe for walking at night and was quiet by NY standards. The staff was very friendly and always helpful with questions and suggestions.
The only negative comment is that the hotel is starting to show its age and could use new carpet and paint in hallways. Overall it was a great hotel and we will definitely stay when we return.

When I’m in New York I want an apartment, in an upmarket neighbourhood, with an excellent deli and wine shop across the street. As a result we have become addicted to the AKA Sutton Place. We try and take the same spacious apartment each time we go and we settle in. The staff sorts everything with maximum efficiency, minimum fuss and genuine warmth and good humour. We love this place. It is extremely comfortable and spacious. It feels like coming home, its understated, its private and the you get the sense that everyone staying their feels as lucky as we do to have found it. The added bonus is the swimming pool, a rarity in New York. Our problem is that can’t think of staying anywhere else, and well, yes, it’s not inexpensive but it’s a great deal. If you want to be a New Yorker and not a tourist this the place.

I stayed here for a week. It's an extended stay apartment so you don't have to deal with typical hotel nonsense. The building has great staff and nice decor. I would recommend to anyone staying in NYC longer then 7 days.

We stayed at AKA Sutton Place for two weeks. I have traveled all over the world and this is my first review. It takes a lot to impress me. This place is perfect. A one bedroom is like a small house!!! Clean, comfortable, modern, spacious and quiet. Very well located. The staff are simply OUTSTANDING! So genuine and helpful. Nothing was a problem and every request was met - absolutely amazing. I will only ever stay here while in NY. The heated swimming pool is a bonus on a stormy NY day with two kids to entertain.

We enjoyed our 10 nights stay at aka Sutton Place apart from the smell of cigar smoke coming into our apartment from a shared ventilation system.
We chose to stay at aka because they advertise the building as "SMOKE FREE" and one of our traveling companions suffers from very bad asthma. Unfortunately it took us 2 days to get any action to prevent our neighbors from smoking.
The staff at the front desk were not effective in stopping the problem and the night manager hung up on us when we rang down to complain..... His attitude was far from pleasant and not worthy of this position.
As management had no idea how to handle the problem, we had to intervene by thumping on the neighboring door and yelling out to stop the smoking. Eventually they got the message!
It took 2 days to get the rancid smell of stale cigars out of the apartment.
It's not a bad place to stay .... BUT check out if you have smokers on your floor before checking in.
