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. Kellie at the front desk was extremely professional, thoughtful and receptive. The entire staff...

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.

I went to this restaurant last night with a client. They were here before and really liked it. I was looking forward to the visit. I had a drink at the bar, and the bartender was pleasant. I had the Hamachi(sp?) and it was great! Had a Caesar salad that was very good. Then I had the Octopus, and it...

Stayed in suite 405, in March 2016. Excellent accommodation, well located on the corner of Rittenhouse Square. Studio suite had comfortable bed, good quality linens and plenty pillows allowing for a good night's sleep. The kitchen and seating area were spacious enough for our stay. Two rings on an electric hob, combi micro oven, full supply of glassware and crockery...

We've stayed at the AKA Rittenhouse Square twice, once in October 2015 for 10 nights and once in February 2016 for 7 nights. This hotel has been the perfect solution for our needs on a longer-than-a-few nights stay in Philadelphia. It is a really great hotel in many ways. First, the rooms (really suites) offer a pleasant and homey atmosphere....
