AKA University City
Ranked #59 of 89 Hotels in Philadelphia
Reviewed 25 January 2017 via mobile

Newly opened in the new FMC Tower, the first thing you might notice in your AKA University City suite is the view. At night the city glitters and the large windows show this off.

A suite or apartment hotel, the AKA is also open to nightly stays in addition to longer stays.

Beautifully appointed in a Danish contemporary style the suite is comfortable, spacious and well appointed. A fully equipped kitchen is even useful on a short stay. An Old Nelson is right outside the building for prepared food or food you can prepare in the hotel.

Three televisions (living room, bedroom and office). Large closets. Good temperature controls.

If you are looking for a comfortable and stylish place to stay in this vibrant area of Philadelphia, I highly recommend the AKA.
