Exceptional 10.0
Upon arrival, we were told that we got a room upgrade. We didn't think much of it until we got to the room. All I can really say is, "WOW!" The room was nicer than some of the apartments that we've lived in over the years! It even had a full kitchen! Also, the staff was extremely accommodating with every request! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! We would definitely stay at the A.K.A. again! Thank you!

Great hotel on the corner of Rittenhouse square
The hotel is great - clean, modern rooms; the location is great - on the corner of Rittenhouse square. If there is anything that may be lacking - it's the small details. There was a coffee machine in the room, but no coffee to put in it. No water, and no vending machines to buy any. All in all, though, these are very small issues - the hotel was truly excellent.

Staff are the best, great restaurant and bar! The best area of Philly!
Joseph, us2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
The hotel was in a prime location for dinner and drinks galore! Steps away from the park and shopping. It was beautiful and clean inside. The room was very spacious and with high end features. We felt like we were the only ones there. It is adjoined by a. bar and a. kitchen. Parking overnight was $35 a half a block away but the hotel gave us a $10 off voucher. You wouldnt need a car if you stayed here as plenty to do is very close by. Uber is easily accessible. The bed was clean and crisp and every channel on tv available. The view from the window was of the bustling city. They have all the amenities however, I only wish they had a pool. The other location in University City does have a fab pool but not as much to walk around there as they do in Rittenhouse. Both hotels are now my favorite.

Good 6.0
The first. Room was an absolute disaster the bathroom was so so small the upgraded us to a better room the room gets cleaned only once a week
leora, us7 night family trip
Good 6.0
Stay was okay. I was not overly impressed. Parking is three blocks away and they don’t have any valet service. Not only that but you are basically totally responsible for your parking.
