This is a great apartment hotel. Located at the heart of Philadelphia. Rooms are very very spacious and clean. Staff is extremely polite and helpful. The only minor issue is that it has no parking. ( you park at a private parking a block away) Excellent value for money.

POSITIVES: This is an exceptional facility that mixes class with a perfect location next to the Rittenhouse Square Park. Its a perfect Park to just sit in the sun and watch people from 4 different directions. Its perfect for folks that are probably okay with a nice Hotel room, but really appreciate and can justify a better facility with a...

A beautiful property, with a great staff. We stayed for several days in a two-room suite and had ample room (with a folding table and chairs) to host several family meals. The suites have the feel of a comfortable, up-scale apartment. The staff is very, very accomodating. The price is a bit high, but not out of line given the...

The AKA is a well-cared for property. The hotel is geared more for the extended stay business traveler, but is a good option for couples who are simply in Philly as tourists. I value the fridge as it allows us to store any leftovers from dinner. Also nice is the onsite laundry. The main issue with the hotel is the...

This hotel is superbly located. The customer service is second to none - excellent!! Having had such a terrible hotel experience in Boston, what a relief to stay somewhere that was clean, well maintained and offered excellent value for money. I would strongly recommend this hotel whether travelling for business or pleasure.

The rooms are beautiful . I have stayed there twice, once in a one bedroom suite and once in a studio suite. Both rooms were beautiful,...

I effectively lived at the AKA at Rittenhouse Square for six or seven months while in Philadelphia on business, and I greatly enjoyed my time there. The rooms are clean and amazingly well-furnished, the cleaning service is competent and prompt, food from a.kitchen is AMAZING, and the staff is helpful and accommodating. The Studio rooms are very cramped, but with...

The aka Rittenhouse Square is ideally located with all the tony shops of Walnut Street - and of course the Square - on the doorstep. The rooms (all suites, some apartments) are spacious, chic, well furnished and have a fully equipped compact kitchen. The free wi-fi is very robust. It is a perfect location for an extended stay too.
